No pictures till we get them back from the metal guy, sorry.
You need to trust Codeman, he does a good job. Sold lots of I-MOD kits without complaints (OK, well few complaints, like shipping delays because of that cable).
If we say you can fit a 1.25" high drive in there, you can count on it. You lose nothing and installation is very, very simple for the 2.5" drive.
Resistors & headers added for the 2.5" kit, I think Codeman could put them in if you don't mind chipping in a extra buck or two. Just ask via e-mail. We figure most people will not be able to solder the SMDs.
