    Need advise on mounting my computer in my MR2

    ALright basically, im having some trouble figureing a better spot to mount my carputer, i dont like having to move it everytime someone else drives my car, since the current way its setup, its based off how far the seat is when I am driving

    anyways, ya i drive a toyota mr2 (91 NA) and, no pics of the carputer itself but here





    its on the floor right in front of the driver side sub, again its not pictured as those pics are old, but ya

    the carputer is mounted on a piece of wood and the carputer rests on it (horizontaly) and when i drive, the seat is pushed back and its touching the computers case, heres a mock up



    again, since the driver seat is right up against the computer when its adjusted for me (im like 5' 4") anyone else who is driving it WOULD NEED to move the seat back, and that means repositioning the computer, which i hate doing

    so does anyone have any ideas on how/where i can mount it, to have extra room? i cant fit it in the storage compartments

    any help would be much appreciated, thanks

    also, my frunk is taking up by my amp

    I would mount it above the driver's sub, sideways, with a dvd slot loader facing the passenger. Hide the wiring under the back carpet. Just be sure to wrap the wires with heat sleeving.

    the first thing that stuck me when I opened up this thread was "CRAP!"

    You need to move that strap that's going over the drivers side sub. You're not doing that sub any good by preventing it from extending when it needs to.

    Secondly, I'd start looking behind panels:

    Please post on the forums! Chances are, someone else has or will have the same questions as you!
