    yeah man i owned a GTS and traded it in like a year ago. mine was the silver and was the intro year(2000). car was alot of fun. but no there was really no room under the seats at all to do anything under them. the only other place would be the trunk. but in that car theres an armrest to store stuff and the glovebox was of a decent size. looks good to me man. i like how you turned the sunglass compartment into where the screen goes. looks good.

    The best part about the car was when it was hot out, I could put a mountain dew bottle propped up at the inner drivers side vent and cool it down with the aircon. lol. ahhh memories.

    iNqUiSiTiVe - I took the "guts" (the boards, button contacts) out of the Logitech Marble and fashioned them to a piece of Modeling plywood (very thin plywood) and hardened the wood with resin. Keyboard is a ThinkOutside Stowaway Bluetooth

    Ineffigy - Yes, its a hub. No, not powered... Just a "laptop" type USB hub I found at Walmart, because it fit in the space.

    NotDave - The cord on the antenna is attached. 5dbi Whip. You could by a pigtail http://sharperconcepts.zoovy.com/cat...radiopigtails/, but the antenna's can be gotten cheap. Mine was 7.95. One thing important with Wifi is orientation. If you tuck a rubber-duck antenna in your headliner for example, I doubt it would do well. Anyway, my range extended by like 10 times with the 5dbi external. I can keep connection to my home wifi for as mush as two blocks.

    agmsd & pepsibobby - Glovebox was the only option. I wanted it the armrest, but I couldn't make it all fit. Seats run too low. Trunk has amps and bass... and still needs to be a trunk. Glovebox worked well, because I didn't have to convert IDE to USB. It's not just parts in the glovebox, the glove box IS the PC with a Plexiglass window. When I need to take the PC out (for new additions or something) I just unscrew the glovebox and take the whole thing. Anyway, I like it....

    Do you ever have people riding around in your car open up the glovebox and almost have a heart attack! That thing would scare me. But, as I look at it more, you can see that it is pretty organized considering the space. At first glance though, it looks crazy! I still stand with my previous opinion, "good job!"

    The dash looks great. Real OEM look. Do you have any build-up photos?

    WHat is that above the center knob for the air conditioning, below the CD-Rom drive? I have a fully loaded 05 Celica and it doesn't have that on the air conditioning panel.

    $149 for the keyboard... omfg. The antenna you have has about 14 options for the connector. Just how are you getting this connected to the PC, including adapters if any (i.e. TNC to xxx to PCMCIA, etc).

    Ineffigy - I guess you referring to the recycled/non-recycled air switch thing... Probably electronic in the 05.

    LexF15 - I'm using a Netgear G Wifi PCI NIC. It has an male RP-SMA connection. So I bought an antenna with female RP-SMA. Theres alot of connection types for different applications, just get the one that matches your Wireless NIC
