    Use duct hose instead of tubing. Depending on the material you pick it will be anywhere from $1 to $3 per ft.

    hai timmeh!

    Sounds cool.... I'd get all those bits professionally cut if i were you.. A dremel is not known for cutting in straight lines.

    Love the idea for the res/front bezel. I have a acryl-shop nearby that has a huge catalogue with plates/pipes/tubes/etc... in acryl. Try the yellow-pages to a similar shop in your town.

    good luck, will keep my eye on this one

    nive idea for the front but must be hell of a job to seal and mount it. but it it works then with some uv additive and some uv leds mounted in the sides will give a GREAT effect :thumb:

    hmm, i thought that dye's had a nasty reputation for making things go all cloudy over time... and that thing will be a biatch to clean. I would say just light the bottom with a set of rainbow leds and lets the general bubblyness create the effect...

    also... shouldn't the inlet ports be one at the top and one at the bottom... otherwise the flow will go directly from one to the other and kina render the rest of that resiviour useless.

    The frount of the case with a sudo body (and better rendering)
    [​IMG]

    frount view of the frount (as you can see the drive bay has been added)
    [​IMG]

    This is a close up of the frount (what you carnt see is there is engraved text saying "Eject" "Power" "Reset" which sits just above the holes for the buttons)
    [​IMG]

    these are the buttons i am going to use (i know that have been used a lot but with the blue leds in them i think it will really set the frount of my case of nicely)

    That laptop, thats one hell of a mod, adding a USB direct for the memory and storage... And it actuially works now, if it does thats one hell of a repair job, certainly looks old school...

    And nice case mod, expecially the modded PSU with the knobs for altering the voltage and power settings etc... Very nice, as well as the clear screen on the top of it...
