Use a sheet of foam rubber, you can get it from textile shops, you can get different densities from quite soft to really hard

just get a sheet of plastic and lay it in the bottom.
Just like in the bottom of the Dreamcast and some power supplies.

That'll keep everything from touchin.

Good luck!

Foam rubber sounds like a winnar. :D
