    Case mounting in trunk

    I just finished building a small wood box/case thing for my computer to put in the trunk. The only thing I cannot figure out is how to easily secure the case to the trunk. I was looking for how others do this.

    I mounted mine on the back of my rear seat. I just screwed it and used rubber grommets to space it off and provide some shock protection.

    The backs of my seats are some sort of wood covered in carpet, so I just used some wood screws.

    Yeah, I'm looking for a way to mount my carputer in my car. My main problem is that I only bought my car 6 months ago (brand new) so I really don't want to go putting holes in the backs of my seats or anything like that.

    I have had my car for a few years, it is a 99, and i still don't really want to drill holes but will if nothing else works after I try the velcro. Maybe i can try to pick some up after work but don't really know where to go.
