    Nice install - couple of questions

    Couple of questions for you as I am just about to fit my Pc into a Mk IV golf here in the UK also. Firstly what thickness of MDF did you use and where did you get the cloth covering from?

    shotty...the sound card isn't held down at the mo. lookingb at getting an audigy zs or m-audio revolution and then i'll probably sort something a little more permanent. but it hasn't moved yet thankfully

    wolfie...we used 12mm all round which gave it the rigidity and strength it needs. its autoleads box carpet from halfords. i used 2 rolls at 25 each, check out ebay in case you can get bit cheaper. its glued down with spray on glue

    neat install mate, your trunk is just amazing.. I wonder, is your hard drive coping well with road anomalies?

    yeah its been fine, better than fine in fact. i can't believe how well a standard 3.5" drive is doing in a car thats lowered 35mm

    it just restarted itself on the journey home but it wasn't cos of a bumpy road...not sure of the cause

    Change soundcard for cmi 6 channel version for about 10ukp, then use zoltrix drivers for it, the old ones seem to work better than the new cmi ones. (better still if ini file hacked to leave all inputs enabled)

    Its cheap but considering its going to be playing mp3's etc it wont let the sound quality down.


    And that boot/trunk looks great!

    Managed to get a 4m long roll of boot carpet from a local car audio supplier here in Northampton for 10 so the install can commence soon. I will post pics of progress when I start.

    Once again, your cock helps out with something... productive...!

    Anyway... VERY clean trunk install... One of the cleanest I've seen so far! Very nicely cut and covered enclosure for the amp and PC. Just finish up with the monitor and you get three thumbs up instead of two and half!!
