    Wink My 1st Carputer Plexicase! -Pics- Look

    I didn't use glue. It can be taken apart easily.
    I kinda made it sloppy but it's built tough. You can see the Keypower Supply and my suspension system.

    smashr2k: do you personally own a laser cutter or does one of your family members or friends own one? that would be the best way to cut it, but im sure they are really expensive. i dont know to many people who can easily get their hands on one.

    Beautiful!
    What is that, 1/2" plexi? I just got a keypower and that thing is heavy! You'd need a sturdy case to hold it, that's for sure.
    (I think I'll have to get rid of the cardboard box I'm using right now...)
