    Very nice mod! Definately beats all the regular boxes with windows and lights at most LAN parties I go to.

    Thanks for the positive feedback on the project. Thought I would post up some pictures of the truck in a kind of exploded view!

    that got a hemi? refers to the dodge commercials and the dodge cars that have a hemi engine.

    btw sweet truck. the cnc work is well and you can tell that there was much planning behind this mod.

    or you can check out www.hemi.com

    Not posted any updates for a while, as my 7 inch screen stopped working for some strange reason, :waah: I even got a replacement screen but that did not fix the problem, so it must be the main contoller board. So i have finally got enough funds to buy a new screen! So if anyone needs any spares eg the touchscreen let me know, sure we can sort out a good price. Anyway more on the Lan Truck, I thought I would put this pic up of the truck outside!

    I have got some other bits done on the truck, but need to take some pics, mainly tidying mods after the screen fault!
    Here is one with only the truck, (the side not seen much)

    after having to take the truck apart now so many times, :sigh: I have modded the back of the truck to be easily removed, trying to source a suitable connector for the front header that has the usb/ sound ports on. This is so I can then just drop the back into postion rather then fidiling to connect cables!

    more work progress coming very soon!

    You need a centronix type connector for the backend so you can just drop it on the back.
