PlayStation 3 Portable
Ok as you can see from the picture my work space is the floor, but don’t worry it’s organized mess. The first step in this build was to see that everything was going to fit, this also give me some idea as to what I was going to do.
My idea was to mount a small Tv and a playstation 3 inside a rugged case with extras like fans, lights and stuff and be able to take it with me on gaming nights with mates. The TV that I used was something I had lying around, it was 1080i so HD but not amazing. I bodged a lot in this instructable like not having a ruler which sucked a lot, so I used a measuring tape and a bit of good old luck.
Mounting the Tv screen was very tricky, I was going to use the mount supplied with the Tv but it made it stick out too far and would cause problems closing. So I used the mount as a template and got it as straight as I could on the inside of the lid and marked it up with a sharpie.
Then using a dremel with the wrong size drill bit ( I love making things difficult ) I then drilled four holes for the screws that came with the mount. I noticed that the screws were a little on the long side so I put some washers on them to make a snug fit.
Now getting them screws into the Tv with no help was really annoying I pushed the screws through and could not find the whole so I had a clever thought and pushed a screwdriver through to guide the two holes together to put the screw through ( Don’t be rude )
