    Ok. Got some things done today. Added som switches for the fans.
    Now i got some questions:
    I´m thinking on making a hole on the right side and build in
    my glowpad then tint the plexi so you wont see it at daylight.
    Should I do this or will it look bad?

    I´m also thinking on adding chrome lists around
    all windows.
    Should I do this or will this look bad too?

    And I have finally decided to make my own fan-guards
    in 2mm plexi.

    See you soon.

    EDIT: This is what it should look like in the near future:

    I would put a piece of metal at the back and drill a hole for a 120mm fan on top of the PSU. ;)

    I <3 AT -> ATX full towers. :D

    Yeah,Fulltowers rock!
    I will glue a 2mm sheet of plexi on the back.
    Metal is so damn heavy and this case is already
    heavy as hell. In fact it weigs around 20 kg!

    As you can see on the drawing I have added some
    details in my plans.

    Anymore comments :confused:

    Well ,its more than one year old.
    Started it in August 2003.Almost one and a half year.

    Today i got a unfair backslash in this project.
    I´m trying to complete it for a competion which
    ends 20th this month.
    So during the last 2 weeks i have been working on it in
    silence.Bondo,sand and paint is how the story goes.
    Anyway , today,when all the painting is finsihed
    i began to vax it up. It got shiny but it´s grey
    instead of black! And my crome paint that turned out really
    nice got shiny but dark grey....
    I´m so pissed atm, i dont know what to do, the competion
    deadline for this case was ment to be at friday , now
    it can hardly get finished before 20 th.
    Maybe this project (after all) goes in the binn.

    Ok, Thats all, i will not do anything more on this case.
    It has been fun, useful and a little bit anoying to modd this case but in the end it went out like i wanted it to.
    We will have to wait and see if i will do anymore case modds at all in the future , right now i´m working on a radiocontrolled boat for the summer.

    If you have questions, ask them and i will try to answer them asap.

    Bye now and have a good summer everyone :D :clap:
