I'm going to move the hazards and the defrost switch to the glove box or the tray under the HVAC controls. I don't need a clock i have a watch.
Case is bent. Do not underestimate the tensile strength of aluminum. My brake was barely up to the task. Might have been better with some bigger clamps.
I also bent a middle shelf but made a minor screw-up. I measured 7" for the inside dimensions but since it fits inside the case, I should have measured for outside dimensions. I'll trim another piece and do that up soon.
Next is drilling holes and tapping them.
I wish I could have went this route, my case is about 5 pounds. In its defense though, it has to withstand the weight of 2 adult humans.
Post lots of pictures!
I bet you developed more arm power during that bending, too. :)
Still alive but not much time to work on things.
Tried a dry fit. It goes in OK but still needs the notch cut out as shown on the cardboard model.
I also installed the standoffs for the motherboard but they need to be moved a little to give me more cable room.
Any updates? :)
I have gotten my GPS. A Wintec G-Rays I here
GMPC looks like it accepts the 10Hz update rate but I haven't had it on the road yet to see how smoothly it works.
All the power cables, distribution block, speaker wire, active USB extender, etc, etc, have been ordered and are en-route. That should be the last of what I need to get this sucker installed for a test ride.
