    Big Update

    My dad came to town, loved my carputer, specially RoadRunner running GoogleEarth (GoogleEarth Plugin).

    He convinced me to ditch the suspended computer case in the trunk and conceived the idea of the drawer you see on the pictures below. Without his help, I couldn't have made it!

    It's hang on the trunk by only four screws, it's simpler and it's even easier to mount than my setup, which required 8 screws.

    Two buttons, for the power and reset buttons. On the other side, the pin to stop the drawer from opening.

    More on the drawer itself: After white prime, just black paint. After that, carpet, I think. Haven't found it yet, tried HomeDepot, not. Tried on one body shop: they won't sell theirs. Still looking.

    Although it's much wider, it's it's less than half the height of the computer case it replaces. It's also much easier to maintain, upgrade and check for cables and connections. It's also much, much cooler: the aluminum case would get hot all by itself on hot days, not so with a wood case: as my dad puts it, the fans would have to work first to cool the case, than to cool the computer: it's a tall order for a couple of 12cm fans!

    Finished (apart from the carpet finishing). What do you guys think?

    Cheers,
