Well I came to a mini snag whit mounting the DVD drive. The power cable connection to the back of the DVD drive is longer than anticipated and prevents the drive from sitting further back in the storage bin, which in turn prevents the storage bin door from closing.
Here are two brief photos. I don't have time currently to add the rest but I will add them tomorrow. I have decided how to fix the problem though.
This shows two sets of hole with grommets attached. The middle hole was the original but then I realized that the USB connections on the drive are on the side not the middle. So I made the second hole further up and closer to the USB connections on the back of the drive. I don't mind the two holes because I plan on mounting a media card reader here also..or some other component.
This is a view of how the drive will be sitting. I painted the styrofoam black and glued a rectangle plastic I cut from other plastic in my project to the front of the stryofoam 'shelves'.
Here you can see how the drive cannot sit all the way back because of the USB power cable connection. I will fix this by making that whole 1" in diameter (compensate for grommet) as opposed to 5/8". The cable connections will be able to slide back further and basically be outside of the bin allowing the drive to slide to the back. This will enable the door to the storage bin to close. I'm not worried too much about cosmetics here because it will be closed and rarely used.
I will post a link to the slideshow with more pics tomorrow.
