  • USB plate and firewire plate

    Does anyone know of a place to buy a metal or plastic plate that includes a USB extension cable. So basically you can fab the USB plate into the dash or glovebox and plug the other end into a USB cable connected to the PC. I've seen some guys do it with just the extension cable but I'm worried about how long it will stay put with the force of pluging and unpluggin USB cables. I'm looking for the same thing for firewire.
    Cheers,

          I second that. Just noticed they are all screw on panel mount connectors, and down on the left side there's a DIY section. It shows cutting out holes and icons that can be printed. This is great for car stuff.
