          After taking measurements and dry fitting the tray, I cut up the Closet Hanger to make brackets.
          My plan involves 4 anchors. Only 3 brackets?

            Inside of trunk. Best place for the computer is under the trunk lid. I had to relocate my trunk light. (unplugged above)

              Remember the 3 brackets? There are only 3 because I decided to drill a small hole under my trunk lid to attach the 4th anchor.(almost looks stock)

                Enter the Ash Tray? My model didn't have an ash tray because of the aux input for the radio. So I'm gonna use the input and pipe it to my sound card, but I want more......

                      After staring at my sound card for a while, thinking of how/where I could mount it, i decided that the volume wheel needed to be used.

                        After deciding where to put it, I broke out the hobby knives once again and started cutting on my console (well the blank inserts anyways). After a few hours of cursing and a couple of bandages later I had my wheel installed.
