    Hey, MS! Looks good...as always :hip:

    I was wondering, how do you plan to re-attach the mobo tray, etc? My V2100 has really small, flat rivets along the sides that are countersunk so as to not interfere with the side panels. I've been afraid to drill them out for fear of not being able to re-attach them. What's your plan?

    happy to see you back again, MS!
    I've just received some pci brackets like yours, but in black from a manufacture in the Netherlans :)
    Waiting for your update, RigoR and AralT3

    MB Cover:

    MUCH-thanks mnpctech... Your correct (not sometimes), the journey IS better than the destination..
    My journey leads me to the mother board cover..
    A very spartan design:

    a pair of 30mm stands offs-screwed together provide the height..
    [​IMG]
    and sheet-black acrylic, the material..

    Holy hell!
    This looks so stunning!
    I can only imagine how the finished look without the tape will be, but I'm in love...

    Thanks, it's actually a very-simple "spartan" approach to hiding the MB. Much of what I do is just-that, simple and spartan. IMHO, what is cool about the idea is that it is all but "future-proof".. Any MB can be concealed behind it..
    Sorry for my slow response, once again real-world issues.. The rest of the pictures I shot during the work session:

    By the way- the bezels are from Chopper's Inc. They are billet Alu, designed as replacements for stock HD gauge-bezels.. The v-stack, also HD stuff is from Eddie Trotta..

    Thanks.. If nothing-else it's something "different", which (by the way) is becoming harder and harder to accomplish these days!
    thanks again..

    Absolutely love your work modsquad. This project is what got me visiting bit-tech daily, and got me interested in modding. Can't wait for more updates.

    Thanks!

    Just a question...
    Maybe I'm dumb, but how do you plan to install the vid card?
    I suppose you have a decent vid card and don't use the on board vid...
    Maybe you plan to use a riser?

    Sorry rig- completely forgot to say that I need to order more of the 30mm MB-standoffs I have been using (the ones pictured on the last page). Using them in conjunction with the stock (5mm) ones, the plan is to have the MB cover sit flush with the height of the PCI slots (which is just under 120mm)..
    Thanks for reminding me about that detail, and I hope I did not confuse anyone by not speaking about it in the last post! :blush:
    I held off ordering more while looking for longer ones, it seems in M3 male/female 30mm length is the max..
