    And further with the drive bay cover. It’s close to the pcb from the graphic card, but that’s what I want.

    [​IMG]

    Some little file work to do.

    [​IMG]

    But it’s fits.

    [​IMG]

    I want to keep the inside straight. So the power cables for the Vga cards must be short. ;)

    [​IMG]

    Marking the places for the led’s.

    [​IMG]

    And ready to drill.

    [​IMG]

    That’s bright light. Just a few led’s will light up the hole inside.

    [​IMG]

    Only the green pcb from the vga cards must be black. Than the soldering looks more to chrome.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And 3 led’s are shining on the ram cooler. Exact in the centre from each fan. ;)

    [​IMG]

    See you soon.

    Sometimes it goes not the way I want. I know that I must cut out some alu from the cover plate. But pci-e slot 1 and 3 are for SLI. Do normal and that 1 and 2. Now I must place the fans under the radiator. No big problem I can live with it. ;)

    [​IMG]

    This part fit. Only some work extra. Make an extra cover for the radiator.

    [​IMG]

    There is only 2 ore 3 mm space between radiator and the vga cooler.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Also making new plates for the cover.

    [​IMG]

    See yu soon.

    I buy this weekend some mesh and paint.

    [​IMG]

    Than it looks like this. There is only temporary 1 screw to hold it as good as possible.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And the opening for the cd or dvd.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    When I push here the cd or dvd comes out.

    [​IMG]

    It’s starting to look like a case again.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    See you soon.

    yeah, was thinking the same thing, it looks great, but shouldn't the hole be just a little bit bigger? :confused:

    No, it do not scratch any cd ore dvd. Because it have on both sides 0,5 mm space. Just what Jipa say. And it’s smooth I used waterproof sanding paper (1800) to finish it. So even when the cd makes contact with the cf no scratches at all. ;)

    Carbon vs. White.. I see a lot of contrast now :)
    Could you post an overview pic of the complete case, with everything temporarily in place (at least as much as possible) ?

    Today I started to remove the glue in the feet.

    [​IMG]

    And this sit’s around the whole feet.

    [​IMG]

    And gone after a couple of hours.

    [​IMG]

    Now I can assemble the feet under the case.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Removing the glue that’s more time than I expected. So the other ding that I did this evening. Assemble the door for so far as possible. Waiting for 1 part that must be chrome.

    [​IMG]

    @Koradhil, I hope you found one pic. ;)

    @JAxen, thanks.

    See you soon

    Is that fan going to be replaced with an LED fan? It looks a bit out of place at the moment.

    So much hand-finishing with such messy and annoying materials. How could anyone NOT give this 5 stars?

    Today I continue with the case feet. I don’t wane see any green light from under the case. So I se black kit to cover the green light from the led’s

    [​IMG]

    And this is the reason. I want white light from under the case.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    One of the most terrible parts from this mod is removing the aluminium protection from the carbon.

    [​IMG]

    This is for the lower part from the case.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The hardware what comes in the lower part from the case. Will be assembled on the back wall. I hope it will looks like its floating.

    [​IMG]

    Also the hardware will be light out with led’s in the lower part.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Than the light out in the garage.

    [​IMG]

    I think if you put the case on and black under ground..... Then seem as it floats. Or not?

    [​IMG]

    As last the effect from the led fan on the carbon.

    [​IMG]

    See you soon.
