    Thanks guys, i have to say that these PSU covers aren't 100% finished, so in the next days i will post the final look.

    Today i post a new work done on the other side panel shield of the case!


    In this side panel i will put the original Alienware control borads for LEDs and FANs + a little mod....

    Modified the molex to horizontal to save space

    I've make and hole in the panel and installed a plexiglas sheet

    Over the plexiglas i've sticked mirror chrome vinyl and filled all the gaps with putty.

    Prepared the wrapping vinyl and the backlight panel parts

    Started the wrapping! It was very hard because this vinyl it's not easy to apply, and also it was difficult to center the ALIENBASE logo.

    After about 2 hours this is the result!

    And the illuminated logo, very smooth!

    In the back we have all the control board installed

    Fact is, your worklog is a riveting journey through what I would call : some genuine old school modding :dremel: :grin:...perhaps it's only me who is kinda nostalgeek :lol: furthermore, I always had a crush on those Alienware cases, especially modded with talent like you did, I 've been watching it from the start once again this morning, because I really love your ideas and the way you bring them to life...:rock::clap:

    Thanks guys, and thanks @kim ! I really appreciate your comment! You are right, i like the old school style, and especially create these lights effects!
    When all the parts will be ready, you will have a more clear idea of my vision for this project, and also i have to say that there are a lot of other special things to do!

    Nice work dude, just read through from the start. Looking really nice - the hex wrap is cool!
