Seriously, I think the HAF cases look monstrous and mean. I don't care if they look "slick" or "hip" or not, I want them to tell people who will never see them that I mean business! >:O
As a great philosopher once said.... "beauty, is in the eyes of the beholder."
here's the first one cockpit that was built...extremely crappy:

it wasn't expensive to build at all, just bought drainage pipes at a local home depot, some wood that we cut to appropriate size, and obviously nuts n bolts. The chair itself is from my brothers mazdaspeed 3 which he uses to race but doesn't use for street driving (legally, you need a passenger seat, but for the types of races he doesn't, it's legal to have a missing seat. Take out seat to balance the car's weight, etc etc.)

Thanks! Although I do have to give the case most of the credit for the cable management. One of these days I am going to get around to sleeving everything, its just so time consuming.
Oh, and please excuse the tangle of cables behind the desk. Waiting until I get a new desk before I tackle THAT cable management.
