    Need your opinion on building car pc case

    Hi every one. So i have started building my second carpc. First one was micro atx with celeron 512ram and m2ATX.
    I have allmost gathered all the bits for new computer:
    VIA EPIA EX15000G
    1gb DDR2 533 ram
    3.5 160gb hdd
    m2-atx
    17dbi usb wifi
    1.2 bluetooth
    Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-900
    labtec 640k webcam.
    USB GPS
    2 x boss 240w amps (got 1)
    I am planing to build case for this setup from stainless steel, laser cut + painted + smal rectangular window + UV lights to match amps etc.
    I have started with rough skeches and i would like to get your opinion and feedback, basicaly what you think and how you would like it if it was for your self. I just want to hit sweet spot between size, cooling and expansion capabilities.

    The screen i'm going to use is pictured above. The PC is going to be located in the boot with amps, not hidden.
    I am deciding now which car i am going to buy, and then will see how i will fit the screen.

    I was referring to the last picture in your 3rd post. They look like some kind of male/female connectors. Thanks!
