    Custom Stainless Case for PC!!

    This is a custom computer and chassis that I made for a client's BMW. The case is T-316L Stainless Steel polished to a #4 grained finish. I started this project by taking apart his computer and drafting the new case. I had to rearrange all of the components into a more space saving design and still have the airflow needed to dissipate the heat. I also had to arrange the cables in such a way that they would fit nicely in his trunk. I still have to make a cover panel for the card slots, but other than that the case is complete. The computer will serve as a HUD (heads up display) in the BMW which will allow him to monitor
    speed, rpm, direction, mp3's,navigation and fuel milage all from a piece of glass attached to the windshield.

    It's bigger than most of us would like, but it looks pretty.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    oh shut up screwball. newbies aren't allowed to critique until they actually have something to be judged! well...ok it doenst say that anywhere but I think we should make it a rule

    nice art work too... can you put that bronze sculpture around my helmet? that'd be bad ***.



    nice craftmanship on the case, and i agree with 0l33l... more info on the HUD! i have hud in my car and love it, but i'd love to see what you're doing with that!

    get a grip...if you had any intelligence you would do a search on my username before suggesting that I have nothing to be judged upon

    Lets not forget the poster of the microwave has designed it for a client, that he is presumably charging, hes posted it on here to flog his wares...im being honest about what I see
