    CarPC wiring problem

    So im wiring up the new Carputer and ive got just 3 wires left to connect..

    the main 12v line and the ground that will power both the PC and the Screen and the line for the ignition.

    I have a distribution block that i imagine im suppose to run a wire from the battery to the block? and the block came with some 80amp fuses... how am i supposed to know what amp fuse to use for this line?

    where can i tape in for ignition does the radio have a line i use cause im not utilizing anything from the stock radio wire harness... could the stock head unit line have enough juice to power the PC and LCD screen saving me from hooking up this distribution block?

    any advice would be awsome

    The ignition wire of the stereo system should be fine. Its a 12V line that runs of the same battery power that the car uses.

    Given that its almost a week later...I would assume you've already had this completed...

    Have any pics of the final project?
