    Notice the blue circle for the fuse I'm safe!

    jay_tu,

    the red circles are where my housing is held up. You can't really see the far one, but the closer one you can see the hinge. I simply bought a metal hinge from lowe's and mounted the case directly to the floor... I had to cut the trunk floor mat along where the housing starts.

    Dude that's the right idea! (your "hide-away" case) You just gave me something to think about and a way to work things around in my trunk... Super cool!

    Hi bulgogi777,

    I think your trunk install is the best I've seen on this forum. I hope you don't mind, but I have used your method(s) for my own install:

    You can check it out in my worklog



    Thanks for sharing!

    Hehe, did you watch Sunday's Pimp My Ride? They did some work on this guy's 2003 Corolla, and Mad Mike said, "This is the only Corolla with a computer in it"

    LOL, I almost fell off my chair laughing.

    Peace,

    Rafster

    Hey Tellarite,

    That's looking really good~! Glad I could help "inspire" the idea, hehe.

    contaygious,

    Yea, I was going to hardwire it, but I need to find the best place to put it... plus I have to take it out alot to give to my wife on her long drives to school

    Oh, and Rafster, I saw that Pimp My Ride... had a pretty good laugh myself. I don't feel like they do a good job with this kind of stuff... the dash looked all weird, and honestly fricken monitors near the wheels on the OUTSIDE?!? ridiculous...

    Thumbs up

    Hello,

    First of all, I'm quite pleased to see several Corolla S owners going forward with Car PC installs. I too have a 2003 Corolla S, and am interested in adding Carputer capabilities to my car.

    Questions for everyone:
    -When you use the 2din space where the stereo used to be, how do you get your AM/FM reception?

    -What is the biggest screen that can fit there? I know there's a Lilliput 8" screen available. Will that fit too?

    -Have you considered mounting a 1 din head unit at the bottom and an in-dash motorized LCD at the top? I'm personally leaning towards that, but I'm concerned about the agle of stereo, since from the outside the stock unit seems to be seated at an angle relative to the ground based on the face not being completely vertical.

    Anyway, great job everyone. I'm pretty excited about this!!! If you guys wouldn't mind sending me links to you installs, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

    Gerard
