    The laptop is sitting on a custom-made wood holder - it has notches for the laptop's rubber pads/feet, and it's secured to the trunk. It's so the laptop dosn't move around when the car is pushed around turns

    how is it secured to the trunk? I am working on my A4 install and using a laptop ( a dell, like in the foreground of the trunk shots), on a docking station. Im having a hell of a time trying to figure out how to secure it.....

    I wish my 2001 was a 2001.5 like yours. Looks good.

    Jusatry,
    It's secured with industrial-grade velcro. Simple!

    I like the laptop in the trunk idea Less perminant. Today I get my car PC installed we are fiberglassing a full size ATX mounting bracket in the trunk so I can install full size ATX motherboards in it Should be interesting.

    jusatry,
    Sorry for the reply-lag.
    The velcro actually adheres to the trunk fabric, no glue or anything was required.
    Just a couple peices of velcro on the fixture the laptop is resting on.

    Deadnick,
    Exactly why we're using the laptop - its easy to remove, and use normally. I've written some software for it too. I did however need to write some software for it, so that it could detect when the car turns off (simply detects when external power is lost, and battery is used). When this happens, the laptop shutsdown properly. Otherwise, we'd have to open the trunk everytime to turn the damned thing off, or, if the battery was dead - we'd be getting those "windows was not shut down properly" notifications, which are a pain to deal with.

    One thing that I still have to do, is rig something up so it boots when the car is turned on.
