    http://www.flints.co.uk/acatalog/Zebedees.html.

    I cut the spring part off them and grinded them a bit and slid them up into the holes to give a threaded hole to attach the side bars. The holes nearest the front are very shallow, but with enough grinding and alot of tapping into position with a hammer, it is easy done.

    Hope this helps

    Cheers Craig!! I'll have a look at the weekend. You ever thought of selling the pc install to others?? I reckon you'd have a hell of a market with the camper van guys!!

    thanks again

    Glad I could help. Couldn't possibly sell the PC installs, so much work and it wouldn't be the same if there were loads of the them going around. That's the fun of building one off's.

    Big change for the van! I like the way you use the placement.

    About 30 people have already said it but... brilliant work.

    Your project has inspired me to join this forum and hopefully post one of my own projects in the near future.

    Without getting too personal here, would you mind me asking what you do for a living or what your background is ? You seem to be knowledgeable in many areas, it's quite impressive and sobering at the same time.

    Hi Holographic, I am an electrician by trade and have always been interested by computers, electronics and extreme sports. I think the reason for being fairly knowledgeable in many areas is probably due to a mild case of OCD... I have to know how stuff works and spend hours researching and browsing the internet finding out everything there is to know about the current thing that I'm working on.

    Hi juanm4you, I'm not selling the front end as I haven't got the time to update it for newer hardware etc. I also have a lot of other projects on as well.

    Thanks for your reply. Seems like you've spent A LOT of time researching and it's paying off.

    Out of curiosity, would you care to share what new projects are you working on now ? I think a lot of people would be very interested. Cheers...

    Hi Holographic, here is my home cinema install:







    Custom made brackets and shelves and 1-1/2 waste pipe used for cables.


    and my 10 inch Hackingtosh:











    I've also got into photography and done a wedding, some modelling shots and mountain bike dirt jumping shoots.

    I have also bought a Mac and wrote some software for learning to play the guitar using guitar tabs and also wrote some backup software for the Mac:

    My latest project is a Gainclone stereo amplifier, but I have just bought a new house which needs completely renovating, so obviously won't have much time for any new projects in the next few months.
