    Do they make tupperware in that size? I have about 5" in height, 10" in length, and 10" in width to work with. I looked at Wal-Mart and Target...and I couldn't find anything with those dimensions that would fit. Maybe I should try Bed Bath and Beyond?

    Well, for now, that's not a worry because she only drinks out of bottles for 3 more months. After that, she will drink out of "sippy cups" which are made so that they do not spill...and I've tested them - they don't. They have plastic valves in them to prevent just that...becuase children love to throw their sippy cups. After she grows out of those, I figure I will have to think of something else - perhaps not allowing drinks in the car at all....or just moving the PC.....but that's down the road a bit.

    Ok, I'm having a bit of a problem with my install. My screen stayed centered like I had it for about a week, but I guess the Georgia heat finally got to it, and now it is lower on the right than it is on the left. I figured that this was due to the adhesive of the zip tie holders that I used wearing out from the heat, so I went in there last weekend and removed the adhesive on the right side and superglued the plastic to the radio frame. I figured that this would hold better, but I guess not. In order to hold the screen in place, I have to tighten those zip ties pretty tight, so I guess maybe even the super glue isn't sufficient. My question is: What adhesive can I use that might hold it better through the heat? If there isn't one strong enough, does anyone have any other ideas of how I can mount the screen flush with the opening? Thanks!

    Have not read all the posts after your last picture, so probably "overlapping" with someone.
    1) I suggesst to re-work your "getto" setup, because of those sticky mounting brackets are very prone to un-glue even under not so high load, however sometimes they last forever... depending on luck.
    2) What regards mounting PC under front seat - it is one of the safest places for it (according to many manufacturers, choosing that place for putting their ECUs). Just build some cage (or case) around it.

    They're both too big, but I'll keep looking. Thanks!

    Try Liquid Nails, you can pick it up at home depot or lowes and there's a bunch of different varieties of it.

    I'll have to look into it, as the super glue didn't hold that much better than the adhesive alone. Thanks!

    I still can't see the pics, tried Firefox and IE. They are there, but will not display for some reason.

    Actually, none of the pics work on the site (for me).
