Interesting. I guess it being a much newer build helps. It’s great you’ve been able to get use out of it, looks really cool. I’m still hoping to build something in the garden for this purpose so I can get soldering again.
Remove the bottom part of the case and it will then fit. That will leave some pins exposed so just be careful with it. Thats how I’ve been using my external SCSI2SD for a while now. Your modified solution is a good idea :)
How cold does it get in your garage and how are you heating it? We just converted our garage into a room because it was so cold and unusable for anything else before. When I moved in a year ago, I was storing all my Macs there but they started to get damp/condensation in them over winter so I...
They really vary. The only G3 desktop I had was not in great shape, the top case would not go back on properly anymore. All the beige plastics despite age/model suffer. The beige internal plastic on the iMac G3 is a prime example.

That seems like a sensible approach to me.
Eager to see the next update :)
