    Personally i would move the computer and amp and all that other stuff to the audio cubby on the left side of the trunk. I don't like seeing wires. the cleaner the install the better.

    when i had a HD radio i had to put it as close to the stock radio location for it to work properly. so moving it to behind the screen should work out much better.


    otherwise nice start. but i think you have some more work to do

    i still have a lot of work to do
    waiting till i made up my mind on how completely it will work, & will clean the install as much as i can , i mentioned it was just a trial i haven't time to clean wires & uses right cable lengths
    the pc will remain in it's location cause i need a good ventilation over it , quite sure i will add some fans over the case as temperature here in Egypt rises & will reach 40 Celsius soon at witch if i used the compartment the PC will burn as soon it will turn on
    still will rethink the whole setup, probably i will use the dash cup holder as CD ROM tray like what you have done..
    as i said i still have alot of work to do but still dont have time .
    also it's my second install in a period of 2 monthes, never worked with pc's before in cars.
    i'm gonna update this thread as any progress is done

    very good. i see that you have a core2 duo. i know the intel chips can get very hot before they start freaking out. most intel chips now days only start shutting down because of heat are normally in the 70c range. so 40c is nothing. i have tested my computer up to 50c when i had my GTI. but thats as high as i saw it get. and it worked fine.

    you are right but i meant that if the temprature is 40 outside car in the closed trunk it vwill reach 60 or 70 without problems
    so if there are no other ventillation i will hang & wont work
