    ah, well today i also put a touchpad in the little aluminum control panel piece. I made it so I could flip up the little keyboard and the touchpad w/ right/left button would be flush under it. Keepin it compact . Works pretty cool. Just have it just in case I don't feel like touching the monitor SO FAR AWAY, lol.. so the touchpad would be easily touched without having to lift up my arm off the center armrest haha. isn't that why we're american? for the mechanical laziness we exhibit? haha. i'll have pics tomorrow sometime "in action" .
    I can justify this laziness by saying it would decrease the chance of crashing while operating the computer.. because I wouldn't have to lift my arm... hence distracting me further from the road by concentrating on where my arm is going and finger heading to touch the screen in a specific location. haha. ya....

    Here's some pics of the touchpad in the control panel. also put two momentary switches in for the right and left click in it. touchpad is flush under the thumbpad, which is flipped up when touchpad needs to be used, to hide it. Also replace the inverter power switch with a higher capacity switch: 30amp, 12vdc.

    pics are at end of album

    to see the back of it, and the wiring:
