    We worked on this design in AutoCAD to come up with a simple, modular chassis to fit his requirements. I really like this design and will most likley produce more of them in the standard 7" DIN size. This one is a custom size since the Lexus has a 2.5 DIN. The modular style of the chassis also helps with the shipping since the parts can be disassembled and shipped flat. I also like the fact you can remove 2 screws and the top or bottom will flip down to access the mounted PCB hardware.

    I did not mount the middle shelf since I am not sure if your going to use it, and/or what its position will be. Don't want stray holes all over this hot build.
    YIPPY !

    I have a m10000 mobo, and DDR2 ram doesn't fit in mine...So I'm stuck using a 512mb DDR chip until I can get a 1gig DDR chip even though I have a spare 1gig DDR2 chip. How did you get a DDR2 chip to fit in yours...or is this a misprint??????
