    It doesn't seem to be too bad as I've smoothed out the edges and the paint softens the edge even further, I'll still be careful though just in case :)

    Thanks :thumb:, yeah I think it was definitely worth it :)

    It's a very neat look for final photos, think all projects could look a lot better using a method like this. rep for sharing the nuts & bolts of it. :)

    Glad to help :)

    Thanks Mechh69 & SkyThread :thumb:

    Also if anyone wants to know how to get the tubes onto barbs so tighly, all you do is pick a tubing that is slightly to small for the barbs, then heat the tube in hot water so it goes soft, then dip it into isopropanol or similar then the tube will go on easy then once the isopropanol has evaporated the tube is stuck solidly onto the barb and only scissors or reheating will allow you to remove it.

    So many things I like in this project, the bendy anti vibe hdd cage is 1 of the many highlights, that was an awesome idea. :D

    Thanks stallo :thumb: sorry about the late reply I didn't realise you had left a comment.


    Here's a mini mod I've done to the CD/DVD drive bay cover. Its the spindicator from here: http://www.pcbheaven.com/userpages/hdd_led_spindicator/

    However I've put it into a line instead:

    I like the horizontal version of the spindicator :thumb: Also im pretty sure the code could be modded so you get a back and forth on the LED's.. linda like the light bar that was on KIT from night rider :D
