    Ok so this is my first attempt at a carputer. I've been wanting to install one since high school and now I'm doing it to my baby ('07 WRX).

    I work with a few guys from this forum and one of them, Discoputer, re-sparked my intrest in pursuing the holy grail of car entertainment.

    Ram: 2 Gb (crucial)
    HDD: Seagate SATA 500 Gb
    Sound: USB Soundblaster Live (24 bit)

    Front-End (interface): (Custom) Classifed untill completion.

    After taking measurements and dry fitting the tray, I cut up the Closet Hanger to make brackets.
    My plan involves 4 anchors. Only 3 brackets?

    Remember the 3 brackets? There are only 3 because I decided to drill a small hole under my trunk lid to attach the 4th anchor.(almost looks stock)

    Enter the Ash Tray? My model didn't have an ash tray because of the aux input for the radio. So I'm gonna use the input and pipe it to my sound card, but I want more......
