Default Old PC case mod

Ok here's the deal
Got one standard case and a 350W or 450W something like that no higher anyway.
And was wondering if anyone had any ideas of stuff to do with a case that is totally not to do with a pc.

I was maybe going to add a Car CD deck to it

Just wondering if anyone had any easy sort of ideas.
maybe something like this

BUT A BIT EAISER

It doesn't get much easier than that as far as case modding. It looks like all he did was put a metal plate in place of the 5.25 bays, drill a hole, and install the tap


What type of tools do you have available? Also, a picture of the case would help.

If one side of your case has an acrylic window you could spray paint the inside of your case silver or bright white and rig up a light fixture. You could rig it so that the the power switch on the case turns the "lamp" on/off. You could use a black light if you want it to be cooler.

the car audio deck sounds the most feasible. As there is a 12v power supply, thou a single DIN car deck is 7 inches wide and 2 inches tall. tight fit for sure.
