    I love it, but you WILL need to fill that S in before you get it painted.

    Go to an auto parts store and pick up some body filler. Follow the instructions and you should be able to fill in the 'S' no problem. I don't know if they have bondo in South Africa but it should do the trick.

    That is assuming you are painting the case, if you try something more exotic like powdercoating, it won't work.

    Thanks for all your comments guys!

    UPDATE!!!

    Sheesh guys, it's been ages since an update. I'm sorry about that. It's been due to a handful of things. December was nuts because of holidays and so on, and as soon as i was back from all the holidays, we started some crazy home improvements and i had nowhere to mod. Once the home improvements weren't interfering with my modding room anymore, i decided to do some modding room upgrades. Before:

    After:

    [​IMG]



    I'm still busy though :p

    [​IMG]



    Anyway, once THAT was out of the way (only last week), i was finally able to start modding again. So, here's the update!

    I realised that the HDD would get pretty warm in the upper compartment of the case, so i decided to give it some ventilation. Top panel masked up:

    [​IMG]



    Rough cut:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    All done!

    [​IMG]



    Then i needed to cut a piece of plexi to go over that for detail, so got a piece of plexi:

    [​IMG]



    Nice red plexi:

    [​IMG]



    Masked up and measured:

    [​IMG]



    Cut out:

    [​IMG]



    Then i measured the hole for the flow meter:

    [​IMG]



    Hole made!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    I still need to soften the edges though...

    Anyway, the hole for the HDD was then measured out:

    [​IMG]



    And cut:

    [​IMG]



    Test fitting... fits perfectly!

    [​IMG]



    Then i measured how i wanted to cut it out:

    [​IMG]



    Done!

    [​IMG]



    Test fitting:

    [​IMG]

    So far so good. The next step is to make a border for the HDD hole, and put some mesh in there. It's gonna look VERY good, i'm sure.

    I also made a little keyring for myself:

    [​IMG]



    That's it. Sorry i've taken so long!

    If you're gonna comment, please also let me know what you think of the photos now, if you don't mind. Part of the reason why i put all the white plexi in this room was for photos. Thanks guys!

    Regards
    Ettienne

    Just went through your complete log, can't say anything else but top-notch! :thumb:
    I've used the same plexi on Red Rogue and really like it. Shuttle modding looks great! Modding some small formfactor case is still something I have on my wishlist :).

    It depends on the platform, this a socket 939 platform with an X2 cpu. So no DDR2, but high speed DDR is used :).
