    basically it is that simple, you can use MDF, and fibreglass it, or just leave it mdf with some carpet..

    doesnt matter, find a place that it will fit, and build a little box for it

    Before you get flamed to death for not using the search feature, try looking in the "Fabrication" section of the forums. Also be sure and check the "Show Off Your Project" and "Worklogs" areas as they're great places to pick up new ideas.

    ipod - do you have any experience in fabrication at all? ahve you ever worked with fiberglass or bondo? If not, i'd highly suggest that you take a few minutes and read the stickeys at the top of this forum. They are very informative and will have you well on your way in no time.
