Step 1:

I eyeballed a lot of the measurements when creating this. Every car is different.

I use a thinkpad x200 so my base is relatively small in size.

Pre-drill hole for your screws, so you won't split the wood when screwing.

Use wood glue and let it set for 24 hours before screwing.

Sand and paint to match the interior of your car!

    I had a comercial setup similar to this and I got a ticket because the officer considered it a video monitor which you can't have where the driver can see it in Texas. I went to contest the ticket and the judge told me "before we start this, you aren't going to prevail" and he let me leave and pay my ticket. The moral of this is to check applicable state laws before mounting.
