    Pitty the motherboard has a green PCB, I reckon this would've looked so much better had it been black. :(

    Looking good jegerjon. But sand your items a bit more uniform, there are a few tut's here on bit on how to do that. :)

    And yes you can legally buy beer at the age of 15 here. but not drive a car or vote before you turn 18. :/

    Update 11 – The front part 1 @ Sunday the 11th March 2007.

    For word.
    Yes sir, now the front’s almost done! I really love it, and I think that it’ll look amazing with black brushed alu! Lets take a look.

    The funny part

    [​IMG]
    The alu sheet.

    [​IMG]
    And the plexi sheet.

    [​IMG]
    They fit very good.

    [​IMG]
    I got to separate my LCD to find the dimensions.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    After some milling.

    [​IMG]
    And then back to the mill again. The biggest job for the front is waiting.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    PERFEKT!!!!!

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Some closeups

    [​IMG]
    And when it’s on the case.

    [​IMG]
    Then the last holes. One for the bulgin button, and two for the tubbing which I want to go outside the case ;)

    [​IMG]
    ;)

    [​IMG]
    A closeup.

    [​IMG]
    And the last picture. It look very good.


    Comments are very welcome!

    Cya!

    I want that machine soooo much. Maybe I should go to school to study 3 years so I could get a job and use such @ work or at school.

    Update 12 – The front part 2 @ Thursday the 15th Mach 2007.

    Into
    Allright, to day i finished up the front.
    Btw. All the screws you’ll see is only for now, I’m going to order some black M4 umbraco screws!
    Lets do it.

    The funny part

    [​IMG]
    Allright, here’s the front I’m going to play with.

    [​IMG]
    It look horrible with the grey metal underneath there.

    [​IMG]
    Cut the big square out, and time for the dremmel.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    That’s a lot better!

    [​IMG]
    And from the inside, I’ll make a cover later ;)

    [​IMG]
    Those crappy rivets is just were I want to plant my plaxi.

    [​IMG]
    So why not make some 7mm holes ;)

    [​IMG]
    Now, that was better.

    I just love the orange and black!

    [​IMG]
    I need to glue the two parts together, so I marked up where the LCD screen is.

    [​IMG]
    Lets glue.

    [​IMG]
    Ready to join.

    [​IMG]
    Then some pressure to make contact all over!

    [​IMG]
    And now! Good!

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Mhh, that’s nice.

    [​IMG]
    All right, lets drill some holes for the mounting.

    [​IMG]
    And also for the fan.

    [​IMG]
    Damn, I ran into this little problem. The nut wont fit in there, so I have to do some dremling later.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Nice – right?

    [​IMG]
    And from the inside, after I putted on the glue, I’m 100% sure that I’ll make a cover plate..

    See you soon ;)

    This project looks VERY awesome! I've been planning a mod by myself for some time, and alot of my idea's are very similar to yours! The Alu plating, and alot of the plexi under the alu, is something i'd like to do aswell!

    Ive got some new inspiration from this project, and damn you make me wish i had a drilling machine like that :C.

    Ill be keeping an eye on this project!

    I like the design alot mate, i think you need to slow down and bring more perfection into the mod, the milling was nice, but the edge seemed chewed up, which tells me you were feeding the material to quickly.

    Again i love the mod, make me want to do something like it. :rock:

    I really like the orange acrylic with the black aluminum overlay. Five stars from me.

    You might have mentioned this earlier and if so, I missed it. However, what are your plans for your optical drive?
