    I think that is just the gloss reflecting the light.

    You're right, it does look very stealthy.

    This is possibly shaping up to be one of the most beautiful A05 mods ever.

    Very slick :D, just like an Oil Slick lol.

    Not sure on the top bolts though, perhaps some button head bolts would look better. It strikes me that their high-profile kinda kills the sleek lines of the case.

    wow, thanks for the kind comment. That's what I'm aiming for.

    The bolts have gone and have been replaced with socket caps.

    I await new pictures :D

    This mod is an inspiration for me to do a log for my mod, i just need the money.

    Also, which screws did you buy from modelfixings to replace the top i/o port screws? The black cross-heads just dont cut it for me too.

    Oh, and those brain-drain grills are the sex, maybe display them on the outside of the case, since they are so nice?

    Hi,

    I used M3.5 socket screws 8mm in length and M3.5 Full nuts. I removed the I/O port and USB leads completely. I don't need them.

    The brain drain grills are slightly bigger than 120mm so the only place it fits in the A05 without further modding is the inside of the rear fan.

    Thanks very much for showing interesting in my project.

    Just a small update.

    I have fitted the switches. Both fit perfectly and look very nice indeed.

    That is a very cool pic. Those switches look very good on the case.
