    Okay I see. I don't smoke either but use it to store all my coinage, so was wondering if I could still do that with the hub in there . Looking forward to your pics

    Yes you can, if you watch how much you open the back up. If I was planning on doing that I could have cut it open differently, but the only other idea I had was to put a usb-pcmcia adapter in there beneath my hub, to run my pcmcia phone card that work gives me. But, I found how to enable network access via my windows mobile phone so I don't need that now.

    I put my coinage in the drink holders and empty it when I can hold drinks safely anymore. Your idea probably makes more sense there.

    Well, two weeks ago, I starting putting my system in, and it has been up and running. I didn't leave enough clearance on the back for the wires coming off the back of the motherboard. Today, I remounted the mobo closer to front, and the frame I built is sitting in perfectly. Tomorrow I will set the screen in, and it will be finished. I will post pics from the install and the final tomorrow night. Didn't take as many pics during the install as I meant too, just got busy working and forgot to stop and shoot.

    C'est finis!!! Well, besides a couple of small clean up things. (stupid power sander mistake....)

    Ok, two weeks ago, I started my install, I had to remount the motherboard in the frame I built, because the wires were hitting the back two inches early. I had this running for two weeks like that, with duct tape holding the screen in place. I totally forgot to take a picture before I took it out unfortunately, it looked quite amusing. Here is the ghetto mount coming out.



    This is the the proper fit depth wise. I realized this had my screen sitting 3/8th's of an inch too tall though.



    Another shot



    Here is the new front mount. Instead of sitting on the two plastic tabs, I cut them off, and made two Z shaped hooks to hold the tray. I screwed it into the plastic on the top of each one, and epoxied the tray to the tab at the bottom. It's quick and I didn't feel like disassembling the entire thing again. Had I know up sooner, I would have bolted those too.



    Left bracket.



    Right bracket.



    Here is first shot of it in.

    DFX, John, your work is amazing.

    You can see on the top left when I was sanding the backside with a dremel, it walked around on me when I relaxed my grip for a half second. So, I have one spot to clean up there. I may work on the cd slot a little more too. It's decent but I can do better.

    Pretty neat job. I like how you fixed your problem with Z brackets. Necessity is the mother of invention, and your work is testament to that fact.

    @Mike: That is the weather app that is included in DFX4.0. It is pulling from weather.com.
