  • Trunk Prep

    Ok, i am getting ready to put my finished carputer into the trunk. I just wanted to know is what is the best way to prep the trunk. I was thinking about cutting a piece of plywood and covering it in carpet. But if anyone has better solutions i would be grateful.

    BTW car is 98 civic coupe

    I mounted everything on a hinged board (half inch plywood) so it folds up and out of the way.

        wi77iam,

        I've got that case...i think! Care to show me some more pics of it? It looks the same! I've managed to fit my Opus in there, along with a 3.5" hard drive Should you wish to "ditch the brick" and inverter!

        That is a good way of attaching it...i didn't think of that Thanks for the idea

          They're screwed into the deck of the trunk. If you do that just watch out for your gas tank.

            The case is a Casetronics 2699R. I have a 2.5 hd drive but it looks like there's enough room for a 3.5 and an Opus in there. That's good to know. The Opus will go into v2 of my carpc. The inverter was cheap and easy.

              I have a 97 Civic and I have my case mounted to the back of my back seat. What I did was removed the seats from the car, took the carpet off of the back of the seats and then put in 2 3/7 X 1 pieces of wood. Then for my amp, I simply mounted it w/ screws. As for my computer case I want that to be removable so put some "L" brackets on there that the case just slides onto and then I secure it down w/ in my case a form of a tie down. Works great cause I can get my system in and out quickly w/ little problems. I'll post pictures later!!
              New CarPC on the way again I think. I miss my old one!!!

                Mine is very similar, however it only has a cut-out for a cdrom drive. It might be a slightly older model (i got it 2nd hand, so no box/documentation )

                This is how i fit both the 3.5" hard drive and the Opus in mine:

                It's a bit of a tight squeeze, but it does go
