    Thanks everyone! :)

    MrP - I was thinking about the 3M Di-Noc Carbon (Black) vinyl but it's more expensive than the printed one and that was out of stock at my 'dealer'.

    outsider - Yes I mentioned this mod. ;)

    Day 17: 2011-08-06 / Task: Monster fan grill
    The day whaen I made a Monster fangrill for the rear 90mm fan. The designed shape was cutted out from vinyl and I stich it to a 1mm aluminium piece. Few raw cutting then hours of filing. ~9 hours of work. :dremel:
    The grill will be painted to glossy black and It will get a green vinyl to the center.

    Day 18: 2011-08-11 / Task: HDD cooling
    As you can see more of the half part of the bottom of the HDD is covered (what a long sentence). There is air what isn't moving at all and it makes the HDD hot. I thought about cutting a hole to the metal covering but after made it the result wasn't as nice as I waited. Something was missing..
    Good for me because I didn't throw away the stock grille from the front. I cutted a piece of this grille and I put to the cutted out ventillation hole. On the pictures you see I had to use some rubber wedge-thing for the mounting.
    The final result is nice and the temperature of the HDD is lower now. I hope you like it. ;)

    Day 19: 2011-08-12 / Task: Installing fan holder
    Today I installed the holder for the 120mm fan. I fixed with poprivets and then filled with putty from the inside. I hope it will looks like an original 12cm fan mount when the paintjob is done. Sadly when I worked with putty there appears some holes.. I drilled them to larger diameter and then putty them out.
