    new update 10/10/2005

    Here is a preview of all the components in their respective places, but theres alot more prepping to do still. Like ventilation fans, carpet or LineX, gas struts for the doors, subs, etc, etc.
    All the components will be mounted so they sit off the MDF.
    All wiring will be run under the enclosure.
    For instance, the power supply harness will have to be extended then run under the power supply through the hole cut out right under but in the middle of the P/S, then under the enclosure then back up through a hole under the motherboard. If my idea goes well this should give a clean wiring setup..
    This goes for all the components.
    The inverter I know isnt the best but its what i have for now. Being on a budget....Well you all know...
    I still even have use of the back area......Loss of depth space....6"...not to shabby...

    you should build doors within the other doors to hold tool cases(like a drill box, or dremel) because your wasting a lot of space with the amps. To vent the amp's and make storage under there would make a lot of sense.

    I agree with wasting space. The enclosure could be half that size and be just as good. OVER HEATING is going to be a BIG issue bc air trying to move bw the big box isnt going to work. Your gonna need a house fan to move air. The computer doesnt need to be so spaced out either. Just put it all in the on loc where u have the comp now. Looks good though. Keep up the good work.

    Looks very nice and precise. However, I'm going to have to agree with the wasted space issue. You could fit both amps in on one side of the amp enclosure. Your computer could be in the box with the motherboard. Heat, as already mentioned, would be an issue.

    Instead of tearing it all up, may I recommend installing around 3 4" fans on the left side of the front-left compartment (the side with the motherboard and hopefully the harddrive). Drill a vent between the computer compartment and the amps. Then add fans to the back-right edge (next to the amps).

    I would have the fans near the motherboard blow in, and the fans next to the amps exhaust. Just a suggestion, I can see heat being a major issue.

    Thanks guys,
    Heat was a thought but i think i have that issue under control with a few of these placed in the right spots......http://www.directron.com/stfb01e1.html
    These cross flow fans move ALOT of air.
    Ill have a few blowing in by the rear A/C vent ( Yes, I do have air conditioning way back there...3 row air is awesome ) and blowing out on the other side or ..i dunno....maybe go water-cooled ? Havent seen that done yet ....hmmmmmmmm....

    No, no water cooling in the car! I think those fans should do the trick. Check out Gnat's Mustang install. He put a couple of those in there. Great job so far!

    new update 10/11/05

    Today I went shopping for more parts.
    Found some allen bolts, 1'' hollow tubes, and some push down fittings for the bolts to the MDF.
    I used some straps from work and made 2 brackets for the HDD.
    In the picture of the HDD you can see the ribbon cable routed under the drive to a hole under it. The hole isnt there yet but it will be soon.
    This goes for all the parts, but i think i mentioned this all before.
    The wire with the LED on it is for the power light, just like the one on your computer case. This will be routed to my overhead councel where the 2 oval option areas are. Ill have one for the HDD indicator as well.
    There also will be a power button and a reset button in the same area.
