    update 2.. (pc boot box)

    built me box today... just got to get a few fans in it and some cold air ducting then slap some carpet on it

    this thing is solid as f00k
    its houseing my M/B, PSU and inverter (till i can get a 12v PSU) , hard drive, space for 2nd battery (for when phase 2 of my install starts with 2x12" subs and
    my 6x9's in fiberglass builds either side infront of the box and a 17" TFT inbetween) and all my USB goodies... (gps mouse, wireless internet dongle, USB hub ect...)

    the reson i chose this design for my box was so i could add the subs and still show off the strutbrace
    heres some pics, it needs 2 10mm fans in the front at the bottem (you wont see these when the sub enclosures are built) and it also needs carpeting for that OE look...
    as usuall click for full size...
    built the frame for under the brace..

    added bottem and fronts...

    added sides and internal suports.. and then the back cover...

    then fitted it in the boot for a trial fit....

    update 3

    this is what i done today....

    striping down the dash...


    out she comes...


    look at the mess... lol


    taped up for a trial fit...



    fits ok... so start hacking




    offer her back up...


    fits good... :P

    :dribble:

    just need a heater pannel in silver without any aircon buttons or a fag lighter then i can finish the dash and get the screen fixed in properly (and yes the screen WILL be bolted to the frame so theft WILL be imposable{i hope})

    what do you all think?

    update 4

    was bored so decided to get my mounts sorted for the pc in the box..

    i added 2 fans, one large one to suck (ill add one the other side to blow to get air flowing threw the box) i have 2 new 80mm fans on there way in the post


    i also added a old exaust fan that sits in a spare PCI hole in pc cases.. this was placed to suck the hot air blowing out the PSU (but im going to remove this as its not needed)



    my old case has a removable m/b tray


    so i simply left this atached and made mounts to mount the tray in my box



    i then made some brackets for the HDD with some ally angle (it will have nice springy spacers to help keep the HDD suffering from mild vibrations)


    the lot...


    im going to make a trick little hdd holder so its suspended and will cussion any bumps....

    You certainly don't mind taking stuff apart!

    Good work so far, I look forward to seeing you put it all back together.
