And the final & finishing touch.. Couldn't leave the carputer/radio exposed like that in the trunk so I decided to create some sort of cover.

Solution came with fiber glass! I created the cover first with small pieces of 2mm acrylic and then secured all the pieces together using fiber glass. Strong and light!

Also found some cloth similar to the one BMW uses for the trunk interior. Mother did the stitches. I sprayed glue on the cover so that the cloth sits properly and glued the cloth from the inside.

I also drilled a 120mm hole and put a fan for ventilation which is activated when the computer is turned on.

I didn't have to secure the cover in the trunk, it just sits there perfectly.
