    Ok I got a small update going.

    I decided to cut out the stripes on my case as I wasent happy with the look.

    [​IMG]

    As you can see I also opened some holes on the top, more on the use of em lader in this post.

    [​IMG]

    As you can see those holes will be for the speakers I plan on incorporating in the case. As you can also see is the contrast between the ps1 speaker versus the computer sheilded speakers I plan on using.

    Now I decided to also incorportae a ps1 lcd screen into my mod as I can make it a portable media pc if I need to.
    [​IMG]

    I cut the speakers out of the ps1 lcd and I am curently bondoing the sony logo imprint on the ps1 lcd case and also the side holes I cut out.

    The bondo left over, I mixed too mutch I supose.

    [​IMG]

    The actual smame cna of bondo I have been using for the last fiew months.
    [​IMG]

    I also remoded my front as the tube I bondoed and glued on was leaving a slight line on the paint so I snaded it down completly and I will paint it when the weather permits.

    [​IMG]

    The switches will turn on my cathodes and my lcd.

    I am also runing out of space on my ftp server so it will be a while till I post an update till I have my hosting needs sorted.

    Ok update time

    I decided to put some mesh behind the pc for some air flow.

    [​IMG]

    Here we have a cleaner shot of the rear end with the switch and mesh in place. I am thinking about cuting a pice of plexiglass to cover the metal tape.

    The sleeving job I did for the psu.
    [​IMG]

    This is the new psu I am working on. I decided that my old psu wasent powerfull enough. So this slightly more powerfull psu (250W) is in the process of being modified to fit the case. I pretty mutch repositioned the rear cable to the front of the psu and I epoxied a pice of metal to the back hole and filled the rest in bondo.

    [​IMG]

    This is the home made modular part of the psu with vents ontop as well. I also put in an AC power plug to plug in my LCD psu.

    [​IMG]

    This is the LCD psu pluged in.
    [​IMG]

    I still have to finish masking the modular part and paint the psu. It has alredy been rewired and will upload pics of the wiring also.

    I modified my psu. I put in a outlet for the psu so I dont have the psu externaly. Very easy to do, all you need is a soldering iron and some time and some small electronics know how.

    solder onto the power outputs from the main power socket to give your lcd psu the 110v it needs or 220 depending on the country.

    I thought it was white=hot. Nice I like how the screen flips up (Hmm...Wonder were you got the idea). Hehe you also have the same speakers as me. Keep it up.
