    I worked on the second floor, inserting the screen and the Lamptron fan controllers in a front plate, it's not as high as it was because I finally choosed a 4 inchs screen, but this plastic material is really hard to work with,:eyebrow:... if I use any electric tool, the heat is melting the material, it makes a kind of a soft dough drying imediatly and the edges are fusing together again...not the best choice as a plastic material but with patience and hand tools it works.

    Sounds like an extruded plastic. If you are not recycling, you should find some cast plexiglas.
    I'd give up on the solid wire connectors. I tried using some fairly stiff wires before and you can never get them clean looking.

    you're right Cheap, I think I will just order some real cast plexi and redo the plate, but for the stiff wires, after trying several ways, I finally obtained something rather clean, you will see :grin:
    I realise that I need to finish the case to have the correct lenghs of all wires and cables, so I measured everything and cut the extra lengh of the case, the final case is 92 cms high :naughty:
