    ok i toke me some of this.... (stolen from work :P )


    and i made rings out of it and put them here...


    :P

    for my anti-shock hdd mount



    also fitted my new fans...


    and removed the crappy exaust blower fan... (damn that thing was noisy)


    then i needed to mount my wireless mouse reciver so i drilled 2 holes on the back cover and used anouther length of strechy stringy stuff from work and made a hoop in the cover and i cut a slit in the reciver and came out with this...

    Wow great job so far. I really like you Harddrive mounting idea, are there any prings on the bottom of the HDD to prent it from jumping too much up and down when you take speed bumps?

    the hdd mounting looks springy but its not... its quite solid, so it will dampen out the harsh movements like crappy roads will cause

    the screen will sit in the dash and the case of the screen will be shaped to the opening in the dash... (im half way there now just need me new heater pannel so i can mount it all up )
    oh yea i do like lots of pics

    cheers everyone

    I think that metal bar is great for anti-theft!
    Install looks very nice so far...

    That stuff you stole from your work, is that tight? Sometimes it's better to mount your HD some more tight than loose. If it bounces the whole time, it does more harm then good.

    thnks guys...

    that mettle bar is infact a performance modification
    its a rear strut brace.... but it looks so nice im keeping it on show... hence the strange box shape build

    yes the stuff i got from work is VERY tight
    its ment to cushon the harsh bumps (with my car being lowerd 60mm with stiff shoks it needs it lol)
