This is my setup so far. Still got lots of tuning and things to add. It took me about a month to do and cost me about $1000 so far.

Gotta thank DK888 for the case and the help.
REPPIN' QUEENS TO THE FULLEST! nice setup ;]
Duct tape and a Bandana for the win, b!shes!!!

I took out the CarPC when i wanted to sell the car 2 months ago. Now that i've decided to keep the car, I wanted to put the CarPC back so i just took this weekend to reinstall it. But this time I wanted to put the PC in the trunk instead of under the seat so I had the pleasure of taking out the rear seats and running the damn wires to the trunk.
Didn't take any pics during the process cuz it was raining
Well here's some of the pics i took after the install:
Mounted the USB hub on the side with velcro
Logitech V200, excellent wireless mouse, and my stylus/pen/laser pointer/LED Flashlight
Taking out the rear seat was alot easier than i thought. For the bottom cushion, there's only 3 clips holding it so you just pull straight up. For the back cushion, there's 2 12mm bolt, one on each side and the rest are clips. You just slide the seats straight up.
The 2nd GEN trunk is a nightmare to work in. I had to climb inside to do all the wiring and mounting.
The CarPC is held up by velcro
Took advantage of having the seats out, brought it inside to clean and condition with lexol.
The result....not bad eh?
It was a real pain in the a$$ doing all this on a rainy weekend but what the heck, I'm so happy to have my computer back!
i have a 97 es and i am currently installing my carputer now
got some nice ideas from checking out your car and must say its looking pretty nice
are you wheels from a 2001-2005 is 300??
is your car a factory 5 speed?
pretty rare if not do you know of any company that makes a direct swap manual i can put into my car???
As for your 97 ES, nobody has done it before but i believe you can drop in the solara E-153 5 speed transmission. Go on clublexus.com or toyotanation.com if you need info on transmission swaps and such
