Have you started on this project yet? Or is still the design stage? When or if you get started I think everyone would like to see pictures.

I am doing something like this. Almost exactly the same. I started working on my center console, I modded a xbox with a 120 gig hard drive it has all the nes, snes, neo geo, sega genisis, atari, games on it and a ton of xbox games, got a mini itx motherboard, 200 gig hard drive loaded with 48,756 mp3s on it, 7 inch touch screen, new switches, and two peltiers for the cup holders. All of this is going into a explorer center console. I started molding two gauges into my cup holders but since I am not going with airbags, hydros instead, I dont need the extra gauges. I am also putting a digi doc in the console to moniter the pc temps, interior temp, engine temp, water temp, and fan speeds. I fiberglassed all the ac and radio area on the back of the console. I need to order some more tweed to cover it. I will post some pictures when i bring my camera home from work tomorrow.
