    I'm thinking it's because it's a car window. About the right size and position for a car window. And he's putting something like a shield/logo/words under it, like it would be under the window on a cop car. Only slanted. I think it's inspired.

    In that case - it will look great like it is. Never thought about it that way.

    The stripe is pretty much done.

    [​IMG]

    Now time to prep the left panel to cutting, sanding, painting, etc. Should I put anything here?

    Any suggestions? It's getting too hard to not stick to a specific department theme especially when it comes donwn to adding a logo. Should I just get a LAPD one?

    I've been trying to find a way to fill the void between the front and the case frame, so like many suggestions received I went with "bars". Let me know your honest opinion.

    I used the grill top that came with R2-D2's head. The fans are for effect. I'm not sure what colors I'm actually using. Any ideas?

    I attached it with a zip tie.

    Well?

    I think that one looks best by far. I honestly thought the police theme would come out looking corny, but its going awesome man. Keep it up :thumb:

    More to do...

    The left window is done and the panel is receiving the white coat first.

    [​IMG]

    I also decided to paint three bay covers, because I was planning on adding a white DVD drive to the top

    [​IMG]

    BUT! then I had a problem. I forgot that the drives are attached via this slide-in cage.

    [​IMG]

    The top corner (This is the inside) has a piece of metal at the top where the floppy drive was.

    [​IMG]

    this is the outside...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I'm not using a floppy drive, especially on top of the CD/DVD drives so I cut it out. Then another problem popped up.

    [​IMG]

    The drive doesn't fit!! I guess it needs rails?

    [​IMG]

    If I even get the drive in, what can fit in this slightly thinner 5.25 bay?

    I would suggest an LCD screen, or maybe a custom emblem that says "Police" or perhaps your name "TheGreatSatan. Always good to promote your own name over the internet. :thumb:
