So still waiting for the check, so i decided to do a little bit of prep work. I knew that i am going to need to test the PC on my bench before i put it in the Jeep, so i needed a "lab power supply." I had bought a project box, for when i thought the PC was going to go in the DIN slot. When i changed my mind to put it in the center console, I stuffed it away.
So far, all ive done is hack up the PSU casing so that it will fit into the project case, drilled a hole in the project case to fit the A/C plug. I figure i wont need the switch for the back of the psu to turn it on, if its plugged in i need it on. Also, i left one of the Molex connctors connected so i can put a load on it. I heard that it is neccessary for the PSU to have a load somewheres. Im going to cut off the MB connector to put out of the box the +12v ground and also an ignition wire. I am going to put a switch on the box to mimic ignition. All of this is dependent of me not getting audited. or some stuff like that.
Also I am at work this week and will be getting underway so I wont be able to work on it until we pull back in.
