I've put two photos of a topless VT100 in http://vt100.net/zane/ which
might give you some idea of the shape of space available.

On the left hand side of the photos you see the card cage. The space
there is 10.5"H x 10.5"D x 3.25"W (but only 2" unobstructed to the
back). You might be able to make that 2.25"W to the back with a bit of

The PSU occupies the space at the back of the terminal, but only extends
halfway forward, so there is space underneath the flare of the tube of
10"W x 4.75"H x 5"D. Of course you'd not want to disrupt the picture.
(Memo to self: must sort out vertical linearity on mine!)

At the back right hand side (again, as you look at the picture),
underneath the high tension wire to the tube, there is a space 4"W x
3.5"H x 5"D.
