Update 9/30/10

I took a few pictures of what ive done lately but its not much. I also had a quick idea for a new tool so i grabbed my dremel and modified a screwdriver to make it. Pictures will give you a basic idea. The gray thing you see at the bottom is a tractor ignition i rigged up to work as the power button in case the remote is not working.

The ports were mounted while using a paper template that might have not been made perfectly but its still good.

Ports with USB and sound cables plugged in.

And now for my custom tool. side note: the key hole is hidden by the latch when the case is closed.

Example of how it would be used.

When i run out of solder i just pull more out. When the spool is empty i can rewind it.

Update 9/16/10

Ive been busy with school, work, etc. and i haven’t had too much good to post about. ive been trying to embed the carpc motherboard but that has been a headache. Ive gone back to putting the carpc in the trunk and running cables. With the coming cold im in a hurry to finish carpc and i have some new build photos.

That is a 7 pin trailer connector Im using. It is spring loaded so it will close if the cable is removed.

I decided to take a picture while working. i wanted to show the cable.

Closeup of the port. The black marks on my laptop are just wear.

Im not sure why the images have some damage.
