    waitaminute....... am i correct in assuming that that ply board that the psu and mobo sits on screws into that frame shown in the pic above it? if so, how the fans going to get air to the mobo, or is tht nt a concern?


    Keep up the gd work! im jst trying to get sound going on my laptop, then out with the power tools
    well lets see, IF i somehow manage to spill some liquid down the fan holes I guess I'll be SOL but if I fry my board oh well, it was a freebie anyway.
    The plywood does attach to the base but when i got the new powersupply it sat higher then i had planned so I had to use little 3/4" mdf squares as risers underneath now theres a good 1/2" gap between the plywood and the base, I also plan on running air ducts from the bottom of the fans into the base for better cooling. Cooling shouldnt be a problem, i have a cpu fan, 2 case fans, a power supply fan and the inverter fan all moving air in 5 different directions. The diamond plate will cover everything on the rack except the holes for the case fans and the plexi window over the amp.

    Thats the problem I'm having with finishing it. its about 80% complete, its up and running in the car but I still need to mount the Lilli in the dash after a few dash mods, glass the subs in the sides of the cargo area, router the frame to mount the plexi window over the amp and a bunch of detail work. But as ya know, every week its another storm or something comes up on my days off. right now i'm in the process of finding a new apartment so thats been taking priority oer this project. i'll get some new updated pics up when i get the chance
