Scott's Computer Cabinet Project Adding Features Phase Page

I needed a computer cabinet, and no one makes what I wanted. The only option was to build one myself.

This page documents the phase of the project where I added the features of the cabinet to the completed body shell. Shelves for the computers and electrical systems were added.
