I have a 6360 in the basement

I have a 6360 in the basement. Is there any particular shot you want? Is it just curiosity, or is there some use you have for them?

That style of case is one of

That style of case is one of my favorite apple cases. I'm thinking of... I think you can figure it out of you look at this: http://img266.imageshack.us/img266/5593/macprojhe1.png

I might be considering of sticking a mini-itx and other parts in one. I'd get the computer off ebay or maybe a thrift store.

Pictures of the back and the inside would be great. To get a feel of how stuff is exactly inside the case... lengths of cables and how far apart everything is, etc.

I'm not saying I hate the original guts inside of it though...

The mobo design and setup do

The mobo design and setup do not lead to reusing the existing cable setup at all. If you're lucky your mobo might slide into the holding rails for the original board, but thats about the end of ease of use. The mobos in these machines uses a large edge connector that attaches everything from IDE/SCSI, video, audio, IR, TV/FM tuner, panel buttons, power, etc. You'd have to pull out the interior slot the mobo plugs into and all the cable attached to it and runs all the cables you need to the various points on the mini-ITX board.

I'm not saying the hack isn't a good idea; personally I'd like to see it go through if even just for the novelty of it. It's just that the case in question does not lead to the reuse of basically any original components or wiring. It's really almost as much work as a Color Classic conversion to an ITX, but skipping the internal video and working with a significantly smaller case.

I meant when I buy new intern

I meant when I buy new internal cables for things like sata, ide, etc for the mini-itx board.

I want to see the distance from the back to the drive cage to about where the connector will be on the new motherboard, etc.
