That was interesting.. My thread got deleted accidentally.
The replacement I-Opener back case is available at http://www.mainstreettech.com
The cover, 298x228x60(mm) (11.73x8.97x2.36 (in)), is manufactured of 18 (0.047 in) gauge sheet steel and attaches to the IO using the original case screws. It can be mounted to the orignal stand using the original screws. Included with the case are all the screws necessary for assembly. A prototype (I don't even have one) CD-ROM mounting bracket and screws for an HP Slim 24x IDE CD-ROM ( HP P/N: D8381A, Basically a laptop CD-ROM with a cable ) are included. I'm working on a pinout for an adapter cable.
Several people have asked about how well it mounts to the stand. I have to say I don't know yet because my prototype was manufactured without any screw threads (PEM Nuts). The flush nuts being used are listed as having a pullout strength of 250 lbs. Four of these are used to connect the IO to the stand so I don't think there should be any problems. The case itself is rigid enough where I can't bend it without standing on it.
To get the idea of the material used for my case, look at the two metal mounting brackets on the inside of the IO rf shield. (The thicker metal things that the stand screws into) Those are 18 gauge.
Anymore questions please ask here so everyone can see... I'll be around til about 11:00PM (ET)
