    Talking HopperHawk's Rustang take 2

    So, alot has changed and I figured that an update is in order. I used to have a laptop hooked up under the seat until a friend of mine in the back seat kicked it then STOOD on it. It still works but made me consider a better place to put it. In my car, there is no other place without major mod. So, what I did is found a laptop 'road case'. This is a cast that a traveling scientist might use to make sure nothing happens to his (or her) machine in transit. I removed some of the internal padding, added a fan, mounted the power inverter, laptop power adapter, and as much as possible inside the case. I figured that if I was to do this, It might as well be removable. Check them out, tell me your thoughts...


    Keyboard mounting location still not done, and I am still building a 'hood' enclosure to mount the lilliput
    (Keep in mind this is an old pict, alot has changed)

    Thanks for looking and for comments!

    As I said, this was old. It was when I still used Media Engine. I just modified someone elses skin witha few images I made. I am currently using the Frodomieser's take 3 with FreeDrive AND Ninja monky (Still not satisfied with FD yet) However, I am also playing with Centerfuse but it seems to be more difficult to skin. Either way, I am not done But THE CASE WAS NEVER FOR RADIOACTIVE STUFF. So no growing extra HDD or anything.
    I still dont know what the hell I am going to do for the monitor enclosure as I have never worked with bondo or anything. I am however a leathercrafter. So I think ?I will make it out of wood and then upolster it to look nice.
