      Hi there, I considered doing the same thing as you to isolate the case in my very first CarPC:



      But then realized that unless the motherboard is properly and securely raised, you might have some problems with the soldering points cutting through the duct tape and short-circuiting on the metal case.

      Newsflash: Take a look at my unsold stuff above, thanks!

          no no... motherboard is installed on small "legs" (as in desktop computers). I did it with duck-tape just to be sure ...

              If you asked me, I would say it looks pretty sweet so far! I'd say keep going with the good work.

                  I really like your mounting system for your HD. I plan on doing this as well, as I have been having head crashes with my 3.5" drive. Nice Firebird by the way!

                      glad to read it


                      So since now , work will slow because I started over with bezel - building new one from scratch - and also I need to wait for about 2-3 weeks for upholstery shop 'cause I am rebuilding whole interior - it will be in light leather.
