    Well. It's really quick and really nice. I ope the next projects would be at least so cool as this it. I still dislike full clear cases, but this one is awensome.

    In the pics, there isn't side panel or is?

    UPDATE!

    I wasn't happy with the front cdrom cover door thingy.... just looked like a foot to me...


    And i didn't bother to incorp an eject button.

    Had a bit of time to think about it @ work today and came up with this new door and idea for an eject button.



    some one had also mentioned the PCB for the buttons looks a bit outaplace thru the plex.

    A bit of black fixed this :)



    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    the design for the new door~! this time i went for a "sPLAT" rather than a gOoP!



    [​IMG]

    the idea this time is to attach the Green plex splat to a clear door panel which is already attached to the cdrom door.


    [​IMG]


    The Custom Eject button will be a "sliding cylinder" type construction and will consist of a shaped inner shaft that runs thru a hollow shaft with the button glued to the front.

    the whole assembly is then attached to the clear door panel.

    lost?

    the 2 main parts to the mod. an outer clear tube with a solid tube that runs inside.

    [​IMG]


    the inner tube is sightly larger then the inner diamater of the inner hole. this is a good thing because it will give me a rear stopper(foot) @ the back.


    Over to the bench press to take a few thou off the inner shaft.


    [​IMG]


    pretty crude! but it works

    You can see how the innner shaft now has a stopper @ the rear this will press up against the eject button on the cdrom.

    a sexy little green button is cut!! my god this was like micro surgery!!


    [​IMG]


    To take the sharpness off the button some heat is applied!


    [​IMG]


    it now looks more like alil green boiled lolly!! :)


    [​IMG]



    The clear front panel is marked and a hole is drilled for the outer cylinder.


    [​IMG]



    Good old plex glue will fuse bond this together forever!


    [​IMG]


    a qik test! all is good.


    [​IMG]

    Next is to glue on the button

    I don't know what to say...
    1 weekend, 1000 ideas, 1 case, 1 man >> 1 extraordinary piece of work.
    And the most impressive about this: It ain't the first time! You never run out of ideas do you?

    As always... :rock:
