    April 3rd UPDATE!!!


    I have everything for the most part except the HDD and the power supplys. The HDD was ordered and should be here by Wed. The mock for the powersupplys was done with a M1-ATX from my othe system. Well to the pics.

    The unmolested glovebox



    Pic of me test fitting the plexi in the glovebox



    Another pic of me testfitting the plexi.



    The plexi with the standoffs drilled, tapped, and screwed in. The plexi is also mapped out for the MB and one of the powersupplys. The second powersupply will mount under the plexi with the HDD.



    The back side showing the standoffs for the second powersupply and my homemade mountind brackets made from MDF. I used Cap head screws and t-nutts to screw them together. All hardware is stainless.



    M.B., Memory, Processor, Wireless card, and M1 mocked up on the plexi.



    The glove box got cut.



    Another shot of the cut glovebox.



    Rear shot cut out for one of the fans. This fan will exhaust, and the fan on the side will blow in fresh cool air.



    All mocked up in the glovebox.



    Another shot of everyhing mocked up in the glovebox.



    Well thats all for today I will post more as I get more product, so keep checkin back.

    Planning: It's not my thing...
    Testing: Not really my thing either...

    Looking good. Cool place to put the computer. Wonder if a mATX MB would fit in there.

    Thanks, yes a mATX board fits. Anything but a fullsize ATX board should fit in there. Im not sure about the Grand Ams though, My buddie says his box is quite a bit smaller. Sweet cars Im partial to the vibe though Are you on GENVIBE also?

    I'm DopeVibeGT on GenVibe.

    Where do you plan on putting the HD? I was going to stick the case in the back, along the rear panels somewhere. This idea seems cooler.

    Oh, the computer is going into the Vibe. The GA is a show car and gets driven only occationally, so I really dont need a computer in it. PS2, yes.
