    I agree! I really don't like the monitor. I like the mouse well enough, but The monitor is starting to drive me crazy, sitting in front of me all day....

    Thanks though.

    After painting it like 6 times, I really don't want to.

    This project is finally DONE. I started off with over a hundred pics of the case and complete mod and have cut the pictures down to about 25. Still a lot... but I wanted to show it thoroughly! I am looking forward to getting this photographed decently with a professional backdrop and not just my desk - that is to come later, not now. For now, here is the finished mod:

    Can you guess what this is? =] it's the top of the drive cage. With the cold cathodes on the bottom, that entire piece of acrylic glows. The light on the bottom is it's reflection on the case wall:

    Looks great.

    That's a lot of orange there. It probably needs a bit of black or some other colour to break it all up on your desk there.

    Wow that's some good painting! Great looking mod, though I think the drive bezel should be sprayed ;)

    Thanks guys - the drive bezel was sprayed. It was originally hideous beige.

    Well the use of the red and yellow gradient on the mouse and the kewyboard works really well, create a real modded effect... The mouse also has that scatter pattern effect with the yellow and orange spray paint... great result!

    There sure is a great deal of orange in it... maybe you need to ditch the red fairy lights or add a another set of LEDs to divide it up... But superb mod non the less

    Thanks guys, yeah, there is a LOT of orange and red in this mod. But that stuck to the theme of the sun as well as my favorite color - orange. I painted the drive bezel before deciding on a paint scheme for the monitor and keyboard and mouse... I think I am going to repaint it.
