    04.Update: Iron Painting
    pics of the very light work of the week before something more consistent that I'll will do during this weekend

    two coats of iron paint. interior was a little shining and did not looks coll so flashy orange painting that will be visible only throught the small holles so it's not going to make a heavy effect
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    iron paint on the back power part, I still don't know how to manage the transition effect with the circuit breaker
    [​IMG]

    minimum to be made envisaged this weekend: to use a old female power plug with protection door to insert the ps2/vga/tv-out plug (I've found two so it's gonna be both ps2 on one and vga + tv-out on the other)

    Sorry mate, but I must admit that your first version of this mod was more effective...

    You're making a goo job, but it's not so original like before.


    Anyway, this is just my opinion... Keep on modding :clap:

    I agree, this version is less original as there is a "rust spring" on bit-tech :D
    But the chrome version wasn't satisfying me. I saw the same chrome bin in a smaller version, so maybe I could do a mini-burningchrome with a minimalist look for my old stripped laptop when I run out of other mods ideas...

    window cutting

    cd cover used to make the window
    [​IMG]
    this is on the top because it's safer and it will not be seen
    [​IMG]
    on the top part of the dvd, there was a little


    on the part of the dvd that I cutted, there was a small notch which was useful to maintain a moving part of the drive, I make a hole and stuck a screw to replace this notch and it works ! (the truth is that I havn't paid attention to this and that I repaired the damage: without this blocking little part, the drive is very noisy and is almost non-functionnal)
    [​IMG]

    relocating switch and led on the audio plug that I routed with my dremel to be sure there was no short-circuit
    [​IMG]
    two connectors and soldering the switch. test : it works very good ! thx zapwizard

    I didn't put the real one, this just a cover and background of another ampmeter, the real ampmeter will show the current and the power used by the power-supply

    it was the dvd drive open up with its new eject button (this button can light up and is connected to the activity led of the dvd) :dremel:

    Thanks !

    the amp/wattmeter I presume ?
    there is no circuit, I just inserted an ampmeter (I used a 2A then a 1A) in an extension power cable like explained in this post : http://forums.bit-tech.net/showpost.php?p=561650&postcount=21
