    I saw modsquad's chrome DVD drive and was wondering if anybody else has done the same?
    Basically what I want to know is what it should cost and what the best place to get it done should be (I don't have any locally)
    As seen below, I have covered my DVD burner in a carbon fiber vinyl
    It looks awesome, however, I'm going for a little different look during this build
    Any suggestions are appreciated.
    I'm pretty sure that I will be able to figure out how to get the drive out of the metal shell... can't be too hard anyway
    (I'm going to be getting a Plextor SATA burner)

    Take it apart and get it chromed! I have done it a few tiimes and it is very straight forward. To find a "chrome-guy" head over to your local Harley Davidson dealer and ask about getting some "small-parts" chrome plated. They will point you in the right direction. Price, my guy charges not by the part but by the hour. You may be better off to take them a few items to chrome plate. If I had to put a price tag on a chrome plated drive, about $50US..

    @synister: sorry, but paint is paint and chrome plate is chrome plate. IMHO, no comparison..

    Where's your picture DJV? OOO-your just talking ****.. I am (once again) the bad guy because I have really chrome-plated a DVD drive and attempted to answer a question asked by [1N0V471V].. Last-time.. with guys like DJV busting my balls when I am only trying to help.. The atmosphere-here at 2007-bit is not what it once was..
    I will finish what I started (BR) and say "good-by"..
    this is NO-FUN..............
    DJV will take over....He is the MAN..
    Look at all the cool-machines he has designed.. They number (0000000)..
    DJV is the future of bit-tech..
    a cocky-young-dude, who has done NOTHING-- but nows EVERTHING..
    ROCK on DJV.. Hell you should have your own website..

    What the hell is wrong with you?! I said i'll try and hosy a pic. Now if you look at my location, you'll see i'm in SA. Broadband in SA is up to crap at the moment as they're doing line upgrades. I can't even upload an image to photobucket.

    OMW you are such a crayon.

    As soon as i can upload images, i will. Now stop being such a blady cry baby, if i could post a pic i would. :duh:

    I've chromed two optical drives, a DVD-RW and a CD-RW/DVD ROM combo.

    You'd be VERY surprised with regard to what i've done. But yeah, i'll step aside and let you step in the limelight, Mr "I'm the GOD of case modding"

    Quite ironically, judging by your behavior, YOU must be the cocky youngster, if not, you're one hell of an immature adult.

    When did i say you're the bad guy? When did i even SUGGEST THAT?!


    What the hell is wrong with you?! When did i "bust your balls"?! I didn't even refer to you ONCE?!


    Oh is that so? Then what do you call these?

    Hey? What are those? Oh, yeah, those are chrome plated optical drives. And what about this?

    [​IMG]


    Oh, yeah that's my Chrome plated HDD cage. And this?

    [​IMG]

    Oh yeah, i forgot, that's my chrome plated PSU enclosure.


    And just to rub your face in it a bit more:

    [​IMG]


    That's right. Want some more chrome with that?!

    lol you think because you've done a few mods now you're the God of this forum? I have a surprise for you. There are loads of guys out there that dont even post some of their mods on here (like myself) because of chops like you.

    Grow up and stop acting like such a child.

    Well of course i'll accept your apology, but i just want you to understand that you can't go around randomly flaming and just ASSUMING that people are being sarcastic, like you have just done, because now you have made yourself look like a real chop.

    Nevertheless, i accept your apology, no hard feelings :p

    You know, I think that's the most amicable ending to a flame-war I've ever seen online.

    Good show. :)
