    Apart from the scuffed front on the close up, it looks great. I would suggest putting some mesh behind those small slits at the bottom though as it'll look a lot nicer :) . Good idea with the fan too.

    Looks good. You can polish-out that plexi-scrach no problem. The CF stuff works well. I used it on my project BN's DVD drive.

    I don't mean to go OT but can the 'CF stuff' fix scratches in Lexan as well? And what does CF stand for/what does it look like?

    CF = carbon fibre ,

    R@mo sutff doesnt fix the scratches, its that black square design material in the pics, but my stuff is fake, he was talking about that another thing fixes the scratches

    my friend gave it to me, you could try the aftermarket car catalogs for this stuff

    Sorry for the confusion guys. Try NOVUS heavy scratch remover for the plexi/lexi. and rub like crazy........
    and you can get the "CF" stuff from frozenCPU

    Also, you can usually find sheets of REAL Carbon Fiber on Ebay (US or UK) for really good prices... :thumb:

    Carbon fiber seems to be the new style of mods. It's popping up everywhere now.

    Yeah, because it has an awesome look :) I was planning to try it myself but the availability locally (for all the mod parts, not just CF) is so limited I basically started from scratch. And a small form factor with a radbox on top isn't that small anymore :hehe:

    Looks nice to me. Anything Carbon Fibre goes on my bike though. :D

    As for where to get real material. You can buy A4 sheets of it at most Motorbike accessory places. You can get the fake stuff as seen above, but Motrax i think sell the real stuff aswell. Its pretty flexible and is sticky on one side, so a piece of cake to work with.

    Edit - Here you go http://www.motrax.co.uk/Index_pages/accessories/flexicacut.htm

    They also do it in different colours, titanium weave, aluminium weave etc.
