    it's all (don't know the word, but here is a picture; http://members.lycos.nl/theegg/blowhole/117.gif ) and a bit of dremel and about 5 minutes of scrubbing.

    And the scratches in front bezel are visible but it is very smooth so i dunno what to do.

    Hey MenLor, a great effort so far :)

    Your Front blow holes are comming along nicely, you havent stated alot on how your going about them.
    But from the piccys you really need to think about a few things.

    * Bondo! is made to work on metal, it dosnt really adhear well to plastics and certainly not smooth plastics.
    *I always make a point to ruffen (scratch scuff) up any plastic surfaces thats that bondo is being applied to.

    *Always try to work your bondo from edge to edge of the job, your not actually filling any holes here ! so anywhere that you rub back to plastic will appear as a "low" or a pool once paint is applied.

    Your picture # 9 shows this, you need to cover the orange that you still see
    another smooth thin layer of bondo applied with force. Then rubbed back again.

    * You really need to reinforce the back of the tubes! epoxy glue is best and lots of it!!! one small bump fitting it back up when painted and your front will crack.

    Not the sort of scratches left from bondo rubbing.
    to fill these you will need Spray putty primer or even spot putty.

    I think your doing an awsome job so far and from what i can see it a job worth doing well and pro like.

    This isn't a dig at your work but just a freindly few comments to help you along.

    idd it's loud

    but the 2 120 mm i only turn them on at lan party's :)

    and the 2 upper fans are always at full speed and the blue led fans are at half speed almost all the time.

    And i don't send any hdd to you :p , i need it next week at lan the 160 is empty :( it has to be full )

    and the dremel and stuff, i got everything from my dad, in his early years he worked with wood, making tables and chairs and stuff so he has alot of tools, if you want i take pictures of my workplace :D
