    Ok guys update time :D

    i started by finishing off the filing on the dvd drive cutout as it didnt fit as flush as i wanted it

    i then got on with mounting the feet

    I then looked at how i was going to mount the hdd and thankfully it had some easy mounting holes on the bottom that fit m3 bolts luckily i had some so i got drilling

    I used some rubber grommets under the hdd to eliminate vibrations

    And here she is all mounted up

    I then got on with the front panel and i decided to use the same fangrill design as i did on modularis but this time straight on the alu to give a cleaner look

    Holes for cutting drilled

    and then roughly cut

    After a while of filing we have this

    I then got on with cutting the mounting hole for the power button
    [​IMG]

    I then cut one of my spare clear discs to act as a mounting disc for the power switch

    Case assembled

    and here she is with the hardware installed

    I would have waited untill after paint but i cant seem to get hold of my airbrusher at the moment so its staying put untill i get in touch with him.

    Hope you like it :D
