    Time for an update! Got my Opus 150 in and after too many hours of troubleshooting i figured out the Opus won't turn on without the top plate (with the fan) removed. It shorts out against an inductor coil and the tape they put on the Opus didn't solve it, either did me putting a thick layer of E-tape on it. I'm just going to cut out a piece of it so there's no metal "plate" around the coil.

    Anyhow, the giant blue case has been removed and the mobo has been mounted to a 14.5"x12" piece of 1/2" MDF with stand-off's. I'll get some pics up soon. The final dimensions for the case will be 15.5"x13"x7". The side facing the rear passengers (the case will be under the front passenger seat) will be plexiglass so the components and glow from future cathodes will be visible. It will then be carpeted in OEM fabric and i'm going to try to make the window a cool shape or something while i'm at it. My full ATX mobo takes up almost the whole bottom piece of MDF, mounting the hard drive and PSU is going to be hard but i think i'll be able to do it. I also plan on adding 2 case fans, an intake and exhuast on the sides. Maybe an intake in the top over the Volcano V12 HSF.

    Been doing some new work on my case.



    My current design is in the pic above by the red suitcase. I currently have only been using the bottom piece of 1/2" MDF. I've decided to chop up a standard ATX case and make it fit under the passenger seat. I might cover it in carpet or vinyl idk yet.

    Some stuffs i bought to mount up the liliput nice and pretty:

    not yet :/. Been trying to make a new case for now and i keep getting sidetracked. I want to get my air ride stuff in and somehow installed before Exposed (the 21st) but i'm not sure if i'll be able to do it

    I wish i had more time man. Also i'm not really confident with myself or what to do yet with the liliput so i'm still thinking. i have a thread up in the fabrication forum about it:

    Dude PM me if you're going. I'll give u my # so we can meet up. I'm going down sometime friday because there is a pre-show at a local Toyota dealership. I want to see ur setup

    Anyhow, i returned all the bondo stuff i bought because i needed the money to buy my valves for my air ride. I want to have the rear bagged before exposed. After exposed i'm going to finish up the air ride and the CarPC install. I didn't want to rush myself with the screen install i'd rather rush the air ride (but still make sure i don't set myself up for disaster with that)
