This is my first post here, so hello all. This is also my first attempt at anything more advanced that cutting a hole in my case for an extra fan! I came across this site and reading through some of the project logs got me inspired to try it myself. Warning, crap pics (only had camera on phone available) A friend of mine pointed out this: and an idea was formed. The idea is to remove the tape deck and put a dvd drive and lcd display there (the tape deck is about 2mm wider than a dvd drive ), use the VU meters to display drive activity and the audio input/output dials for the contrast/brightness controls of the lcd. Might try to adapt those speaker/mic jacks to work with the sound card. Opening it up revealed: So much wiring! It took nearly 2 hrs to rip everything out! Trial fit of the components: The bit which is circled is the PSU. It wouldn't fit with the casing on, so off it came (might have to make an enclosure for it, but that can wait). Now I knew where everything was going to go I decided to cut out a section of the case to fit the motherboard blanking plate That's it for now, hopefully more tomorrow when/if I manage to go out and buy some drill bits.
