    ive decided that im sick and tired of not having any usb audio or firewire ports on the front of my pc so i have purchased a 3.5 bay attachment and im planning on attaching it in the spot provided in the pic above. I got the holes file out and i need to go back with a round file and smooth some of them up but overall it looks pretty good. more updates to come. :clap:

    Haha, I was once modding a case exactly like this.
    I gave up in frustration with the steel and trying to file out the side window.
    You've done a great job. Keep up the great work.

    lmao, the case was made in like dec of 1998 or 99, ull never believe what i used to cut the windows out.... an angle grinder, let the sparks fly. Once it was cut out i went back and filed it down to my likings. Im going to finish the front panel this weekend. Picking up some filler primer and another can of blue paint tomorrow once i get off work and get to modding.

    They just had 40th reunion. Lots of emails and pics. Never seen so many OLD peeps in one place. Glad I couldn't go. The real colors were Orange and Black but it was a tough go. Black and blue on lots of weekends.

    Knives and chains to be checked at door or detention for sure.

    Very nice. This is one of the few occasions that I like all blue. You have spent plenty of time making a fine computer.
