2023-12-25 (M) EWC_Cyberdeck Structural and computer installation

I was almost ready to start on the internal power and data, but I had a few more pieces of hardware. I wanted a wide handle and thought I could find a version built for 2020 aluminum, but I had to search for playground equipment and found a fantastic yellow model. The bright colors and wide profile make this look somewhere between a safety bumper and a carrying grip. I also put a divider between the keyboard halves, but I may need a second. I added bolts from the bottom and internal right-angle connectors to secure the bottom as much as it holds the keyboard.

I borrowed a micro PC with M3 mounting holes on the bottom. I drilled two holes in the enclosure and snugged it down. I picked out a 10-port terminal strip, but before I fastened it to the bottom, I realized it would be impractical to secure wires due to the enclosure's shape. I could not put it on the back panel because that needs to slide out into place. I decided to add a pillar that I could quickly remove to service the connections.
