    nice - i shoulda done that for a cleaner install - might have to look into it sometime down the line... taking the seat out looked like a PITA

    Absolutely STUNNING install.

    How snug is that fit for the laptop? I'm still in the planning phases of my carPC and I have canadian heated leather RSX-S seats in my Civic. How big is the laptop??

    sorry, i never measured it. it's an inspiron 5150 with the screen removed. it's a snug fit, but it's easy to position it.

    if you're going to mount it under your seat, might as well remove the screen to prevent it from getting damaged.

    Take a look at my worklog, I have pics of my rsx sterio relocation witht he cover still on. I'm not sure if u have a us or canadian RSX, mines canadian so I mounted the setio under the heater seats, if you don't have buttons there you can mount the sterio above. When you take off the plastic cover on your cig lighter cover you'll see 2 singel din looking slots you can slide a singel din with little dremeling

    I am using CaveLive. Works really well and does everything I need without being super heavy.

    Cavelive, I have never heard of it. Where would I get it from? In your first post you say you are using RR, did you decide to change over to cavelive?
