    Grounding Mobo and Case

    Do I need to ground the mobo of my uATX (CHAINTECH 7NIF4) or can I mount it right onto my glovebox (plastic)?

    It's recomended you ground it, because of static build up. I imagine while driving there's going to be some boucning around (wires and so-on) that will greatly up your static electricity. You may not have to ground it to a metal plate, but connecting the screws with wire then to the chassis is probably a good idea.
