    Hello and welcome to the forums! A couple of things to note:

    1) Your first 10 posts / threads will need moderation and so won't appear straight away - there's no need to post them more than once.

    2) When using imgur to host your pics you'll want to use the 'Direct Link' rather than the 'Image Link' or your pictures won't appear (I fixed them this time). Also it's best to use the 'Large Thumbnail' option so your pics don't appear too big here.

    Good luck with the mod!

    the folds were made by a very special machine that use large companies and it was really difficult to find, more I work on this case and more I think that the welding / assembly / folding method are very very accurate and valid , at the highest levels , a huge congratulations and thanks goes to inwin for this great job, I thank especially for the possibility to working on this product

    Your pics are broken (again) - you need to add .jpg to the end or use the imgur direct link - you can edit your post by clicking edit below it.

    I'm creating a panel that starts from the ex base of the dframe mini to the back, I made the holes for the i/o port of the dframe (see photo) and the second hole is for the fans/pumps controller
