If you look in my signature, you will see "Custom Case: Ford Aerostar".
Actually, that is the case my board is headed into.

The inspiration: My uncle and I were playing around on the Apple website, configuring the Powermac. We got it up to about $32k. My uncle: "I would rather buy a car than a Mac!"
(No, he and I weren't mocking Apple prices; we just were noticing how... pricey they are at the time.)


I know what you're thinking. I combined the two. Close.... but I DID combine computer and car. No, I didn't turn the van into a computer (it would be powerful though :) :lol: ). But I'm getting my case to look like it!

Now, I started it before I decided to take pix. Let me tell you what I have done so far.

I inherited two (really) old P1 200 boards and cases. I figured, I'm not gonna get much oomph out of these. So I take the boards out, unscrew this, saw that, unrivet, bend and saw some more. Finally, I got to near unriveted cases. :D

I figure, while it's unriveted, spray painting the case. So I get metallic blue can we have. Turns out, it's nearly empty. :oops: Good color, just not enough.

And this is where I'll be finishing this story...

Sorry for the delay....

Got school, so finding time is tough.


Main case:

The top/front panel area (thinking of putting LCD here)

All I need is 2nd board to put in there. Getting it.



How it goes together

Sorry for it being so dark.













While I'm at it, and since I enjoy casemodding, I am going to show a couple others.

The 810 is in there.

STILL no pix :oops:

However, the Labtec PS/2 laser mouse I have with it is in the process of being modded. Gloss red L/R buttons.

In honor of the vehicle that inspired it (RIP :( )

Good news!

I just found out, if I mount the board vertically, I am able to use a full ATX form factor board! :D :D
So I might be updating my sig soon...
Bad news:


My camera is at a loss of batteries. And I still haven't bought the spraypaint. :(
