Step 1: Looks like a iMac G4 ?
So dash mount this time.
Step 2: Build the mount/holder
Also spray painted black to match interior.
Step 3: Tap into lighter socket
Start with the bottom rubber cup holder. Use a small screw driver, push open the edge of the rubber cup holder. Slip in a needle nose pliers & pull it out.
Step 4: Cup holder removal
Eject the cup holder. Hold the cup stem, pull up a bit, then rotate clock-wise. It'll come out, trust me ...
Step 5: Remove shifter console
Step 6: Remove ash tray
Open the door, insert small screw driver to the 2 bottom tabs & push back to unlock. Pull the ash tray out
Step 7: Tap into lighter harness
You don't need to disconnect the car battery, just be sure key removed !!
Grab the L-shape lighter connector with needle nose pliers, pull right to remove.
Open the connector & tap wires in.
Black/yellow is HOT
Blown is ground
Close connector & reconnect to light socket.
Step 8: Run power line
Quickest way is to run power wire outside, then back in.
