    I know this isn't really an up date, but ive been really keen to give the LCD mod a good test and with the spare board /cpu's this was possible.

    I've dragged HPres1 from retirement, well from under the workbench :p and put it to good use, so excuse the black silver and purple colour scheme.

    I was abit worried about disortortion and interferance and also glare! wasn't too if the clear plex would make viewing too hard.

    Well its all good no interferance and the viewing is better then expected :)

    Heres a few piccy's and some instant watercooling thx to some wallpaper trickery :p

    Cheers.

    This is one amazing mod. is it hard to take an LCD apart and mount it like u are? I imagine it's risky, but still...i wanna do it.

    Very Nice. The way you have the button mounted and everything looks so great. I still can't get over how beutiful that paint job either. I might buy and HP if they looked that sweet.

    Also does it run cooler with that WC'ed wallpaper :hehe:

    thanx guys :) im just doing somthing i really enjoy doing!
    I think if i had deadlines and biz restictions on me it might not be as enjoyable.
    All you guys can do this stuff too! I really don't have any special tools
    just a bit of experience and an imagination.

    Fitting a new base plate.

    A lot of work went into the bondo side of this mod and its time to put some effort into the rest of it.

    First was to crack it open and find a suitable place on the PCB board to drill a
    hole thru it to feed the wire thru.
    Of course a hole also had to be drilled into the outer casing and a gromet fitted to finish the hole off.
    Once done the new wire loom can be fed thru, covered in black tech flex and ends heat shrink covered to stop fraying.

    This idea completly removes the wires from the back of the unit and feeds them down the bottem underside.

    And will keep a clean appearence on the inside of the case.

    Now that the wires are taken care of the outercase can now have a custom plex outer cut to shape and fitted.This will not only conseal the old unused rear holes but help colour match the unit (as well as the CDROM) to the rest of the project.
    Satin purple is used for obvious reasons!

    [​IMG]



    Last is to re-attach the satin black cover to the chrome HDD-BAY pop in the screw consealers.

    Last is to feed the new wireloom thru to the outer side where most of the wiring is consealed.
    Again a wire gromet is used and a chrome RCA jack.
    This part of the mod is done :)
