    My new plexi case with the inside painted black and a nice window on the top with a cool design. Not too bad for the second try with plexi

      Nice work, did you just spray paint the thing black, or what?

              Good work. It came out very clean. How'd you cut the plexiglass to get such a nice edge?

                  home depot did the top and bottom for me, and then i scored the rest

                  the rca's are for the screen up front, that is the tv tuner box and those are the 2 av inputs

                    The only thing I don't quite get is, why would you use plexiglass only to paint it black? I thought the point of using plexi was to see though it.

                      hmmm

                      Not all of it is painted black. There is a window with a graphic over the motherboard. Its different than others and looks pretty sweet.

                      I plan to build mine out of smoked plexi.

                        I love the look of plexi, and when u paint the inside of it man does it ever shine on the outside!! And like nathan said, gotta be different man! Everyone makes theirs out of plexi but that is done too much, needed something to set myself apart, hehe.

                          I have a question..
                          Why make a plexi case and use a regular AC-DC powersupply? I wouldn't, cos in my opinion using an inverter is just to see how well it works, and to use the carputer while saving up enough money to buy a DC-DC supply.. aslo, aren't you just shoving this under the seat??

                            god your title fits you so nicely....


                            this is a hobby...so i'm gonna work hard on it, i dont' care if it goes under a seat, when i have it out of the drawer i want it to look good

                            find me a dc-dc that will fit in a 12.5" x 12.5" x 3" case, that isn't jeff's as his won't work.

                            people run inverters because they work if you wire them properly
