The power supply was fitted at the rear of the frame, the cables from the PSU just being long enough to reach the EPIA, HDD and LCD driver board. At this point a keyboard, mouse and a temporary CDROM drive was fitted to load Windows 98.

The base of the Pet was stripped out and a suitably modified black keyboard was fitted. This was the hardest part with careful use of a hacksaw and a Stanley knife. Notice no function keys or escape key!

The monitor could then be mounted back on the base and the case fitted with the power lead, network and mouse cable entering through one of the pet's old expansion ports. The monitor case has a power button fitted at the rear connected to the EPIA The plan is to put the HDD led behind the perspex bezel.

All done!
