    Looks nice, I like how you removed the unsightly handle and little holes in one fell swoop. Is that just the first coat?

    Sounds good , Snitch!
    When do you expect the case to be done?
    I have worked at my front for the case, that took me a weekend!

    Left to do is just fix the front and paint it, Make a blowhole and paint the top, fix the window side(maybe respray it looks kinda "dusty") and add moulding.

    I drilled a hole in the powerbutton with a wooddrillbit and it didnt go to fast but i did the whole first hole, then for the second i changed for a metal 3mm drill wich actualy was a 4mm drillbit.
    Too nice!
    Fill with plastic padding tomorrow...

    nice smart looking window. Normally i hate moulding but it fits in there. Well done. :clap:

    btw you know the fan that is cooling ur hdd. Are the wires just pushed into that 3 pin connector? If you are moving it around be carefull :p

    Looks great so far. Just a piece of advice: I have noticed that you have taken off that lower part of the bezel. You might risk to make some severe scratches when putting it back on again...
    You are hereby warned.

    (Oh, and :thumb: by the way)

    50x50 for 15 kr!?!? That is cheap! Extremely cheap. 230 kr for a piece that size and only 2mm thick was a bit steep, though. But if you ask, you can get all the leftovers they have at the same time, and then it's not too much.
