I carried the case to my car, trying to put it inside the glovebox in front of passenger seat...
Opps! It did not fit, the cover couldnot be closed.
That was my bad... i should have measured sizes of both the case and the glovebox.
So, i had to think of another way to put the case inside.
I went to survey for the location and found that it was possible to put the case instead of 6 disc CD changer (which was unusable after i installed Xcarlink).
After taking off CD changer, i tested the size with actual case. Well, it would be fitted without case front panel.
In order to install the case, the frame has to be done first. I used metal bars (with holes at every 2 cms, sorry i don't know how to call this in English) to create case's frame.
Then, glued and wrapped the frame with foam rubber.
After fixed the frame to computer case, it was installed nicely.
Putting back the glovebox to see if it fits... well, it is.
Glovebox cover is closed, now the whole computer is burried inside the car.
As i looked at the case's front panel which i took off during the installation, i got an idea to use it. I drilled a hole on the front panel and put the main power rocker switch (from battery).
Reset (momentary) switch is also at the front panel.
At the back of the golvebox CD changer hole, there are 3 screw holes (i don't know what these holes are for, but i guess they are to fix cover plate for car model without CD changer). So, i made fix legs for the front panel using these holes. I used epoxy putty to form those legs.
Lastly, the case's front panel is installed to the glovebox. Now with power and reset switches, also power, harddisk, and PSU LEDs are wired to display at the front panel.
