    This is an amazing mod. I don't know if someone asked this already but what site did you get that truck from? I wanna see if they have something other than a MB truck, but like a semi.

    Hi all finally done some more work on the truck. I have added in some fans to pull air in from the front. This blows the air over the top of the TFT and also on the ram.

    Damn man, that truck looks so good! I wish I had the will and skills to make something like that. One thing though, I'm sure that you can do a little cable trimming as it's gotta be killing airflow. The ribbon cable in front of the PSU can especially decrease airflow and increase temps.

    Axle Stand

    Hi all, Done some more to the truck. Created some axle stands. This is to take the weight of the axles. Also created a holder for cables from the tft under the chassis, the jacks clip on and the cable is stored in a dummy looking fuel tank!

    To answer the previous question, the temp in the case, actually stays quite cool cpu stays around the 30 mark!

    that tanker would look pretty sexy!
    Did you ever put any thought into putting the PSU in the other trailer? It would prob save on heat and space. from the size of it it looks like it might fit right up in the front and there still might be room for the keyboard and everything. I could be wrong, but there wasn't a whole lot of pictures of the trailer for me to see. then the wires of the psu could be hiden under the hitch, maybe even plugged in someout so they could be easily seperated.
    Just a thought.
    reguardless this is an awsome case. I love all of these cases out of things that were never meant to be cases. fantastic!

    The box trailer is for carrying the peripherals such as the keyboard/ mouse/ etc.

    It was looked at, but to keep everything neat it all had to go into the main body.

    Thanks, as kane says it works best to keep it all in the main truck, takes up less space on the desk as well :D The pics below are with the Blue neons on. The stands really light up well!

    Side USB cover

    Hi all, after all this time I have finally made the cover for the usb/sound header on the side of the truck. I have machined in the logos under each of the ports with a .3mm cutter :D
