    Here is my 1/10th scale Lamborghini Murcielago PC.

    I decided to build a pc in a 1/10th scale Lamborghini Murcielago body. I airbrushed the shell a custom mixed color changing hue(it changes from a subtle blue to purple). The body has a custom pearl silver racing stripe on each side and the wing is even painted a correct 1/10th scale "carbon fiber" look. I used a piece of diamond pattern chrome plated aluminum for the base and chrome HPI racing rims. Spacers lift the Via Epia M9000 motherboard high enough to fit the laptop harddrive PSU and slimline DVD-Rom drive under it. I used extensions to run the mouse,keyboard and monitor hook-ups to the back of car. I use a ATI remote wonder to control the mouse. So its mainy run by wireless remote. My Lamborghini Pc has been featured in a few Magazines. PC Extreme (issue 5)and Atomic PC magazine featured Hotbox. More specs and pics below.

    I saw this in Atomic a couple of months ago... congrats... I'd love to build one... where did you get the shell from, I've been unable to find one (although, I haven't been looking very hard)... I'd love to either do the Murcielago or a Lotus Elise.

    Very nice motor, err I mean PC.

    Anyway slight thread steal, my next case I want to spray two tone colour (which is what I think your car is).

    Any chance you could tell me how much it costs (and whether its easy to do)?

    Re: 200mm

    That makes sense, I just remember seeing the pics of yours a while back and there seemed a lot more space down the side of the mobo on yours :D

    Love the paint work on yours wish I had access to a proper paint sprayer :)

    Thanks! I saw your Focus Pc it looks great. I would like to do one in a Savage truck or a hummer. I wil be busy on my Terminator T-800 mod for a while though.

    As your tricked out PC site is a commercial venture I am going to have to ask you to refrain from posting the flashing banner with link in your posts. You are welcome to use your sig to place a link to it but no images can be displayed in the sig.

    Nice PC btw, looks pretty slick.
