    That's slick as hell!!! Awesome job dude!

    I'm just wondering if you considered using a laptop and buying two docking stations for it - one for use in the house, and the other for use in the car (for example) under the drivers seat or in the trunk.

    I mention this only because the newer HP and toshiba models (and i am sure others) come with 160+ gig hard drives in them and they're very fast machines - 2.6 ghz and above. expensive, true, but it's a true mobile desktop replacement solution!

    anyway, Awesome job on the casing.... blows away my half-assed efforts by far!
    - sh00k
    Duct tape and a Bandana for the win, b!shes!!!

    Cost so far: Less than a grand ;]

    I considered a laptop but where is the fun in that? LCD?? Nah.. I use a VFD, much better performance during the day and night. It fits in the giant hole in the front. I could always have an auxillary LCD, but I don't need it.

    Unfortunately I accidently scratched the front panel while doing the installation. Hopefully Veritas will be kind enough to repolish that section.

    The case is great. I was about to post pictures but I realized I didn't measure the dual harddrive bracket correctly. So I had to send my baby back to Gordon for an adjustment.
