    Hi, welcome to the forums!

    What is a PWP RSX? Is that like an import thing?
    I'm still trying to cross the hurdle of my broken lcd, but I just recieved a few parts (including a ATI remote wonder 2, and a Griffin Powermate) so I'm gonna work on adding those in the meantime. The computer aspect of my project is done.

    Here is my to-do list:
    • Fix LCD
    • Buy GPS (BU-353)
    • Buy Bluetooth Dongle
    • Buy new cell phone with bluetooth
    • Position backup camera
    • Buy auto startup/shutdown controller for laptop
    • Buy Female-Female VGA Adapter
    • Get WifiHopper to work on TinyXP
    • Fabricate an enclosure for the amp, laptop, and antennas
    • Fabricate in Griffin Powermate
    • Find a good place for USB hub

    I am using a 140 Watt power inverter to power the laptop, and I spliced the lilliput power cable into the front ACC socket. I tested everything, and the inverter isn't giving me any ground noise.

    I ordered a new controller board for my lilliput from motorcitytech, and it should arrive shortly (it was $95 with shipping). I am going to figure out how to get my usb peripherals plugged in today.

    This isn't my car (notice it's auto), but I didn't have a good picture of the trunk. I wanted to make an enclosure for the laptop/amp/everything else, so this is a quick sketch of how it will look. I plan on making it out of mdf, and covering it with carpet similar to the car's interior. Once the screen is in place, this will be my next project.

    I decided to reinstall the OS, since TinyXP was holding it back. There were many programs that would not run/install (WiFiHopper, ATI RW2 software, etc..) and I figure that I can make it similar in run speeds by disabling services/using minlogon/etc... Luckily, I had 2 partitions (C: = windows, E: = everything else) so it shouldn't take too long, since I don't need to reinstall some of the programs.
