no other power source needed in this installation.
are four stainless bolts installed through each of the four
corner mounting holes that run all the way through the mainboard,
nylon spacers, plexiglass platform, rubber grommets and finally
through the glovebox itself, secured with flat washers and
nylon lined lock nuts. That way the entire structure is snugged
up together as one solid unit, with the rubber grommets allowing
for vibration protection.
mounting hole in the motherboard is offset from the other
mounting holes. I was unable to route that bolt through the
actual frame, so I used spacers and a rubber grommet and bolted
through the plexiglass and glovebox.)

of the chassis to hold the slimline CD/DVD ROM.

clearance for the DVD tray to open without obstruction when
the glovebox is in the opened position.
