    Got a lot of NEWS.\

    1. Well I got a batch file set up to cut this weekend but was unable to start because of other pending jobs I had to get out. The router was also occupied with a sheet of 1/2" clear acrylic that I was cutting for some neon signs im making. Its ok I would rather take my time and make sure they are right than rush and mess them up or even worse break a router toolbit.

    2. I took delivery of my new 'stang on monday. This led me to do mad research on this car and found out that there is more than enough room in the dash for the entire computer/P.S./Harddrive/and LCD to fit on a "tray" as 1 assembled unit and bolt right in without modifying the dash at all. I was orginally planning to go under the seat with my case, but I gotta say this seems like a better solution/route. I got most of the info from here:

    2005 Mustang Coupe V6 Install

    3. I will be doing someting similar except I will only be buying the trim/install kit from circuit city and molding my screen into that, then fabbing the aluminum chassis to bolt to it and hold the rest of my componets. The final product will be a complete bolt in affair with an OEM look. Anyway, this leaves my case in limbo. After all that fabbing I decide not to use it

    4. So yes the case that you have seen in the last couple posts/pages is offically for sale. If you are in need of this case and cannot wait any longer for me to get production started here is your chance to grab my baby. Price for this model is $115 shipped to your door. This includes the case, M.B. standoffs, Lid, Lid Thumbscrews, Intake and exhaust fans. I only have 1 case at this time so the first person interested in purchasing let me know by posting in this forum. ill give DOHcrazy a chance to purchase first since he has the first spot on the groupbuy. I will ship next day UPS or carrier of your choice. I want to get this case out there and get some feedback on my design.

    5. Production Plans are still active. The first batch of 3 M10000 cases is what im working on getting out. I am still tweaking files for the other motherboards.

    You will not have to mod this case at all if you are using a via M10000, laptop drive and m2-atx power supply. This is the same as the production models will be. I never installed it into a car, and only had the M.B. installed inside of it. It is still in new condition, its been sitting inside on carpet since I finished it.

    Man that case is SIC!!! I would LOVE to have one but not sure I can shell out the $100.. Well maybe I can.. Tax season is approaching and I usually nab $100 of our refund for toys..

    I have a 3.5" HDD, M2-ATX PSU but I don't have an Epia board (well I do now but I'm going to be selling it). Any chance to make a 9.6" x 9.6" motherboard with a AMD Sempron fit?

    hey man, nice fab work..... I'd buy that case if it fit my system, unfortunatley my case would need to be different from that.... I planned on building my own, but the equiptment you have access to is just awsome, & gives results that aren't acheivable in building it by hand alone....

    if I made templates of my case, would you build it for me?.... mine will definatley be a one off though, as it would be for a laptop motherboard....

    let me know what something like this would cost, & I could paypal you for it, or send payment with the templates.... or whatever..... the money is not a problem, but it would take me a week or two to tear my system down & build a template....

    lmk if your'e interested...... awsome work... if this works out I might have a few other things I'd want built

    Thank you again for all the compliments, this case did turn out really nice, I took a lot of time making it. Im actually sad to see it go. I will be heading over to circuit city as soon as I get out of work to go pick up my dash kit.

    EDIT* I am also willing to trade this case for a power supply (m2-atx or opus 150) Power Supply must be in good working order
