Carputer Cases- Unique/cases you can mod
Ok I was trying to come up with a good title for this thread but gave up. I also couldn't deicde if I wanted to post this in General Discussion, Hardware, or Fabrication. I decided to put it here since this will need to be fabricated to work. It was sparked by some ideas I have seen past and present.
I am a bit lazy at times and prefer to take something that is used for one thing, but can used in a another way to fit my needs, rather than build something from scratch.
With that being said, I am looking for interesting/abstract ideas for cases that could be used for carputer cases with some modifications. :)
I have seen such ideas as this on this board or my own:
- Playstation(s) PS2
- Key lockbox
- Electrical panel box
- Aluminum tool case/suitcase
- Plastic tool case
- other electrical type looking boxes (see yellow box below)
- Poker chip case
- Gun case
- Army ammo boxes
- cash drawer
- 19" rackmount (not as unique but an option)
- legos-weird but fun to build
- satelite receiver
I like the plastic tool case idea because I could fit that underneath my seat (not always a good mounting location, see FAQ) and it would help keep water/snow/fries out of the case.
I was going to mount my new mATX board in the trunk, but now I feel like I could fit it under my seat where my itx was. What are your guys ideas for cases that I might have overlooked?
