    Hi there, I considered doing the same thing as you to isolate the case in my very first CarPC:



    But then realized that unless the motherboard is properly and securely raised, you might have some problems with the soldering points cutting through the duct tape and short-circuiting on the metal case.
    For Sale: Carputer (CarPC) & RCA Y-Adapter
    Newsflash: Take a look at my unsold stuff above, thanks!
    Up Next: Make an OBD to Serial cable & Redo the "MMI buttons"

    no no... motherboard is installed on small "legs" (as in desktop computers). I did it with duck-tape just to be sure ...

    I really like your mounting system for your HD. I plan on doing this as well, as I have been having head crashes with my 3.5" drive. Nice Firebird by the way!
