Default MegaSquirt Mounting

So basically my freshly built MegaSquirt is sitting on the passenger side floor in all its glory.

What are some creative ways you guys have mounted them in an NA? I a few ideas but mostly thinking of fabricating up a bracket to utilize stock mounting points.

If anyone has pictures of their mounting that would greatly be appreciated.

this is how i previously did it. newest installation consists of it sitting next to the oem ecu, with a usb cable port in the center console to plug into it.

Here are some images of my setup in the '92, which mounts the MS in the stock location. Done thusly, the stock ECU coverplate still fits in place.

I loved my bungee cord set up. But it won't fit on his car, I checked. And damn Joe giving me the idea to remove my AC box, now I have nothing to mount to. It's one screw and a rubber band now, and I don't like it cause... cause you need a screwdriver to get it out. Plus before it was rubber mounted and vibration safe.

I'm just going to have to make a bracket.
