    Are you going to airbrush the fullcover backplate too or the complete block (if you should choose one with a acetal top)?

    I have vid-card envy. Those things look as thick as video-bricks with those fans attached. It'll be nice to see them water cooled.

    I am partial to anything green, but those LEDs in that billet HDD mod look sick! Great job Bill.

    Ok, I like the HDD cover, but as AngelOD said earlier, there's a reason why HDDs are assembled in clean-rooms. Aren't you afraid of the HDD malfunctioning after a while?
    Oh, and while the contrast between the HDD frame and the black chassis is probably what you aimed for, I think it would look better if anodized black. Just my 5 cents. ;)

    Thanks for the comments guys! I don't endorse modding HDs, but it's fun. I may just stay with Green LEDs. I'm short on any spare White 5mm LEDs atm. I mounted the two I&H 225 Reservoirs on the bezel, which now looks very "Trek" on it's own :D fyi: Ian Hall made these reservoirs by hand and it appears he stopped them. I couldn't find them in stock anywhere. Dropped him a message other day, to see whats up?

    Ok, this looks very good - but I'm a tad confused. You mentioned earlier this year that you were going to mount the I&H reservoirs to the "handlebar-esque" feet - what changed?
