The fist step is collecting everything you need. Of course after you do this you will, according to Murphy, need something else as you progress so be ready to run back to the parts store in the middle of your build.
Here are the parts I started with:
Set of cold cathode florescent tubes
1/8 stereo jacks (2)
1/8 stereo plugs (4)
SPST Mini switch (2)
DPDT Mini switch
12v Power jack
12v Power plugs (2)
Cell phone car charger
NiHm car charger cord
and of course the bay cover.
Your parts list might be different!!!
Now let's not forget our tools list:
Small side cutters
Small needle nose pliers
Saw (I used my scroll saw and a broken blade from same saw)
