So here are some pictures:
components strung out on the desk during testing, there is a desk under there!
Stock Dash: (some people call it the atari dash because it's all digital from the 80s)
This is how much room I have to work with behind the factory radio. That back brace will have to go.
Mocking things up in cardboard:
Mockup showing power supply and case fan placement:
I'm going to have to shorten up those power supply cables:
Test fit, it's going to be cozy!
Case Fab work started, so far so good!
I have to admit, I think it looks pretty cool:
I screwed down the hard drive and cut out a notch for the power supply to poke through
So I have to create the lid still and cut holes for ventilation. The power supply will be mounted to it as will the case fan.
Now you are up to speed. Time and money permitting I should post some more progress here soon.
