    dunno dude. I saw one for 50 i thought might be handy for a spare.

    did think about a rear view camera I can servo control to looka t fitties in traffic jams. It is always hard trying to perve on fitties in car behind using your rear view mirror!!!

    Theya re jsut about 1" thick and wont match my other sunvisor so i might get one and hack my sunvisor apart and fit it in there. Just doing the screen int he dasha t the moment. My damn dash is too long to puch my HU back enought - gonna have to trim some fat from places inside the dash....out comes the dremel!

    ya i see that he also put your avitar back to the orginall( I was asuming it was the mutating monkey doin it) I am also assumin he is workin 0I33I pretty good.

    Anyways i just checked out that thread and i will take some good pics and post them in there. not to sure about the 848x whatever that crazy *** resolution is but i will do 800x600 vs 480.

    One thing though i cant upload the high res pics threw here, I mean i could use a host like image shack or sumin but i dont how long the pics would last and it would be ashame to lose them.

    here is a pio of the front of the case. You can see the hard rive led sitten on top of the fans. that and a power led will be on the left side of the fans.

    tryin to decide about what i want to do about covering the fans

    I will get into the construction of this alittle later in the thread to explain my ups and downs with workin with plexiglass. And let me tell you that workin with 1/8 plexi and limited tools can be alittle tricky. Well gluing it is the tricky part.

    This whole case with execption of the back panel was made using a $2 scoring
    knife.

    John that PC looks sick! Good work buddy

    YOu could cover the fans with some plexi with logo (eg VW) cut outs and polished edges so the light goes in but then frost the outer part to hide the outer part of the fans.

    Athe 848 resolution looks **** as it is squashing the screen horizontally which really doesnt look nice. Even worse than 800x600 stangely enough. The Vertical squashing works better.

    Oh yeah, have a look at motorcycle and RC car stores ot anodised bolts. You may bot be able to get self tappers but you can sink knurled threaded inserts into the plexi or just get some anodised raiseed washers that surround the head of the screws.

    scouse thanks for the compliments and sugestions. You read my mind with raised plexi over the fans and etchin something in with leds.

    I had been thinkin about that for awhile, i was going to etch in "German Enginering" and the thing is the way the case sits in the car the fans are what you see so a nice fan cover would top it off.

    Ya i was going to do real nice screws or bolts or whatever but I had the pieces cut and they were just sittin there for days cause i hadnt gotten nice screws yet. I got impatient and just put it together with what i have + the car comp funds need to come to a end for alittle while.

    i have a nice back panel for the case but it is not on in the pics cause the AC ATX is hooked up.

    Side note: I took some nice 800x480 and 800x600 pics for
    comparison so look out for the thread. I just got to
    pick the best pics.
