    Custom Plexiglass case

    Built a PlexiGlass case. I know it looks a bit getto, but this is my first time, plus didn't think about getting a Dremel until 40% into project.

    Link to pictures (sorry site is not snazy, just put it together in 10 minutes)

    My next project will be to take everything out of plexiglass case and install into Double-DIN empty headunit, and replace face of headunit with LCD, maybe even build rails or something for LCD to travel on, so I can insert into dash and have full CarPC in 1 nice package!

    that's a tight fit, I can't stand working in a tight spot like that...props. Nice with the ATX (that's my second favorite part). Canít beat the twist ties though

    Thought about getting a 2.5" HD? I think that would fit right inside the case

    Dude, not bad for your first try. Things look pretty cramped in there! What're your temps running?

    I built a similar case, it's a lot longer and taller at one end though because I put a 2.5" laptop HD in there too. Also I wanted to leave some breathing room
    Props.

    No problems with temps. Working pretty nice. I am however upgrading a bit, thinking about adding a power button. I may cheat and go for a C134 mini-ITX

    Just really don't really enjoy working in cramped spaces either.
