So I had my compressors for sale on craigslist they were 2 viair 480 compressors I was asking $265 for them anyways A guy emails me and says he dosnt have too much money but has a ton of stuff he could trade for the compressors so I head over to his house to see what he had he was close and it sounded like he would have something I would want. I looked through most of the stuff he had that he would trade when he mentioned some monitors he had in the door panels of his truck. I check them out and make sure they work when he says he got them in another trade and they came with a computer and some wiring that he didnt know how to use. He had rigged a cigarette lighter adapter to power the computer but he couldnt get any picture on the monitors he said I could have it as a bonus if I wanted the monitors I traded him my compressors for the monitors and computer and when I got home I pulled the battery from my car and brought it inside to hook up the mini PC and monitors and see what I could get working. The monitors are Xenarc 700TSV 7" and guess what they turned out to be touch screen and they retail for about $360 each new.

The computer wouldnt work for the guy because the cigarette adapter he was using only put out 9v and the computer needed 12v to work properly I hooked it up to my home pc monitor and re formatted the hard drive the thing works great! I did some research and couldnt find the exact mini pc I got but its made by xenarc as well and they sell bare bones mini pcs for $385 well turns out the one I got isnt a bare bones system.

I did have to order a couple of things so that I could use the new equipment but it was only headrest shrouds so I can install the monitors in my the head rests of my caddy and a power supply for the computer that makes the computer go through the shutdown process when I turn my truck off rather than just killing power instantly.

Some pics of the equipment
