    case looks great awsome work with the plexi
    I've tried bend 3/4" plexi before its no easy task and its a waste of expensive glass if you dont get it right
    I just wanted to throw something your way a product ive found through my years of 12volt car installation dont know if you can use it for this case but it has endless Possibilities
    its called liquid ice its pretty much liquid plexi you form in a mold anyway you can get it from a place called select products here is the link
    http://www.selectproducts.com/

    keep up the good work

    [​IMG]
    It was made of hardboard and i think the results are much better than the previous one.


    [edit]
    Forgot to post one image of doors being trimmed
    [​IMG]
    Looks like the hacksaw is one of the most precise tools of all :D
    [/edit]


    Interesting things:
    [​IMG]
    Knob to the left and one foot to teh right. All made in the drill press.

    THAT color will work. With the red plexi and LEDs, it will look like fire.
