    Mounting my car pc

    I'm trying to now permanently and clean up my install. This is what it looks like right now...



    Obviously this wont do. My question is that this case came with a stand to mount vertically which i would rather do but am not limited to doing. I would like suggestions on how to mount my setup. I am open to anything right now. Amp racks, false floors, velcro, or drilling the mount to screw to the floor. Doesnt matter at this point because i had an idea of what i wanted to do but once i put it in i decided against it. Thanx in advance for any good suggestions and poo on the others... Juss Kidding

    Two suggestions:

    1. Build a shelf in the trunk directly underneath the back deck on the interior. That is, a shelf that's in the trunk underneath the speakers and third brake light.

    2. Vertically on either side of the trunk so it's tucked out of the way.

    Good suugestions. Do you think that the a full size board (micro-atx) board would be stable "hanging" from the rear deck?

    Yes, but I tend not to worry too much about shock protection. If you're worried, you could put the case on top of some egg crate type foam and that ought to do it.
