I'm working on printing a test bench sled for mounting the motherboard.  The idea is to test everything and fine tune the screw holes before designing an enclosure.  The magsafe connector mounts very, although I am considering embedding the power brick into the enclosure as well.

Wifi was not working, but connected to the network with ethernet cable just fine and was able to ssh into the machine.
