    Question slimline cd-roms

    how do you have your slimline cd-rom mounted?

    i've searched online for mounting kits of any sort but ive come up high and dry so i figured some folks around here had to mounted them somehow... pictures would be great... comments of suggestions are also very welcome!

    I'm thinking about mounting mine in my glovebox. i figure it will help keeps cops off my back (I'll just tell them how am i going to watch dvds when there is "no" dvd drive) and how often am i going to switch cds or dvd while driving ... and to cap it all off the only good place i could put one would just look really out of place.

    on a side note: damn ppgt94 your install looks nice
    don't worry i know i usually don't make much sense

    There are some minor imperfections that are more visable closer in direct light that bother me sometimes. Nothing major. I guess I'm not really re-doing it. More like touching up. Thanks though.

    Where do you have the system installed? How far is the DVD-Drive from the system?
    I have my system under the passenger seat. I wonder if it's possible to use a slim slim dvd-drive with a USB adapter.
    Any thoughts?
