Step 1: The Parts!

-1 Plastic PCB Box
- Mini keyboard and touchpad
- SD Card extension cable
- Ethernet Externder
- 3.5 inch TFT Screen
- 3.5 mm Headphone jack extender (mine is missing so this can be optional)
- Micro USB Cable with power switch
- External Battery Pack (Mine didn't come in time, so I will still instruct what to do though!)
- USB 2.0 extension cable

Step 2: Machining the Holes

Now we need to machine holes or the ports and buttons, For this would recommend using a dremell to cut holes.

Step 3: Screen and Keyboard! and Power Buttons!

If you have a screen like mine, it will have adhesive on the underside of the stand, but if yours doesn't, you can use adhesive of your choice. You can also have adhesive of your choice to attach the keyboard to the front of the box. I used double sided tape to attach my keyboard. You can also machine a hole at the front to put the power button through.

Step 4: Finished!

Now all you need to do is insert the plugs into their holes, and wire everything up!
