    Carpc V2

    UPDATE:

    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!

    Yea, factory 5 speed. around 1% made from 92-93 i believe.

    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
