    I was bored this weekend so I did a few things. I know its nothing big but I liked the way it turned out I guess :eek:


    First I had recieved a 20x4 VFD from fohkus which I bought from the forums this week.(Thank you again btw :rock: )

    So I made a bracket for it using some spare aluminium from my old lian li from when I cut out the window.

    I know I need to fix the rheobus bay but I haven't got around to making one from a lian li bay yet :duh:

    Next I took out the casing of my power supply and cut a hole on the side so that way the wires come out from the back side and not from the front anymore. I like it this way becuase it looks cleaner not seeing the wires. Well at least for me lol. I still need to cover the hole on the front, maybe cut a new front panal out of some sheet metal.

    Lastly I couldn't afford to chrome my side panels so I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a 16x12 chrome sheet for a $1.25 and put into the sides, drives and buttom to give the mirror effect. I know its not the best but for $1.25 its all I could afford without shelling out for polish or chrome(maybe later).

    Well thats it I guess I hope you guys like it :worried:

    Thanks, unfortunately the hard drive only lasted about 6 months and then it died . I just use it as a decoration piece now lol. And yeah its not chromed(i wish it was but I don't have the money). I just cut out the paper chrome thing and pasted it on.

    Nice, but still needs work. First, please arrange your drives logically. It this were my case i'd have:

    Stealthed Slot Load
    Stealthed (totally) CD Drive
    VFD (albeit, center it in that chunk of alu)
    Rheobus
    NewEQ

    Also, you could use a wee bit of sleeving on the inside, and to hide that graphics card power wire. Nice idea about the chrome-a-stick, looking forward to seeing more!
