Richard Sherman won the NewEgg Case Mod contest by making his own custom case using clay, a rubber mold, and fiberlass. Since he had just finished working on his ’69 Ford Bronco he decided to make his case resemble the car.
I found a 12.1” LCD screen on EBay for $100 that was just the right size for under the hood. I cut the hood off so I could fit the LCD screen, a recessed control panel for the keyboard; power, reset and LCD control buttons which fits under the hood. Next came the steel frame, bumpers (which doubles as carrying handles) and floor. I used an old motherboard, CDROM, hard disk drive and power supply to find the best configuration and make all the mounts. I found a set of RC truck tires on EBay for $35 and got them mounted with steel legs against the inside of each one to hold the weight and so it wouldnâ€™t roll.
