Nice!

Would it be possible to make 1 backplate that supports the rapidroad and the dvi cable (Indy MK2 and MK2CR). I use the extra space next to the MK2 DVI-connector right now for the usb-cables to come out of my A1200.

Or is there not enough space? I would be happy with one usb-slot too..

Already thought of, it would be very tricky. As already pointed out, there isn't much room. We did look at possibly a mini usb, obviously you would then need a cable to convert it back to full size usb.

Or create an hdmi-slot/cable for the indy mk2? And then a backplate for 1 or 2 usb-slots and hdmi?
