    I need your thoughts!

    Hey Guys,

    Here is my boot:



    I think I might remove the power cap as it seems to make little or no difference. All I need to do to finish is to install my kenwood music keg. Which looks like this:



    Its about the same size as a CD changer, but I cant work out where to install it. The only two flat places I can find in the boot where I can still get to it is. Mounting it to the side of the subs, or mounting to the wheel arch, however If I screwed into that surely Im gonna end up with all kind of problems.

    Any thoughts welcome!

    Put it where the power cap WAS! as i read in a thread yesterday they are PANTS. best bet is to get a bigger battery (diesel??) instead of one, so you'll have plenty of room then!
    I'm after another Coupe Turbo

    Can it be mounted vertically alright? If so i'd do as said above or go for the glove box option

    Is that a hard drive for all your MP3's?

    Only problem with putting it where the power cap was is that there isnt enough room there to fit it in, and its no flat. Id have to completely box in the side unit just so I could mount it there.

    I have thought about the glove box option, but I really wanna avoid that if I can as it would use up so much of the space, plus Id have to pull out the cables I have spent hours laying.

    Anymore ideas?

    Is it possible to mount it carefully to the top of the boot under the parcel shelf. You could put it right at the back and to one side so it doesn't get in the way

    You know I was thinking that autosparks, and you know what I think im gonna do it. Its the only easy and safe option I can think of that gives me easy access and lets me keep my glove box.
