    I'd say that beats any Via mini-itx system I've seen. It's not as externally ornate as your original plan but it has a very nice clean look which perfectly fits a box of that size. Thanks for sharing the process with us. :thumb:

    It's nice... and I meant sleeving for the cables...
    but as there aren't any "real" windows to see inside it's ok !

    Colour theme is a bit Xbox 1-like ! Tux is nicely done.
    Congrats !

    Great job. Nice to see a well done Linux machine. All mine are old PII 150-200mhz machines.

    But I'm a little confused. In the pics of the top in post 113, is that actually the template still in place before the paint? The teaser photo in post 107 is a negative of the 113 shots. And it looks like paper edges on the later live one, as well. Just curious. If I got it right, do you have some finished shots of it? Anyway, like I said, I'm confused.

    I really like the front logo. Very nice.

    Actually the bit of white still showing is the primer I used. The teaser pic was with the "template" still on and a pic of the shadow cast on the bottom of the case.

    That is part of reason I am not happy with the paint job on it.

    OK, I'm not confused anymore. I just had it backwards. I've been sitting here trying to come up with a clean way to fix it, but no good way comes to mind. Pinstripping brush would be tedious, and unless a person was really skilled, would probably turn out a little sloppy. Trimming the template a tiny amount might mean the paint that touches the acryl could peel. Hmmm. You'll come up with something, I'm sure.

    Thanks for sharing your project! It's inspired me to do some more thinking on the computers I want to build for my boat.

    Once again, really nice job!

    Nice, but expensive. In order to not go off-topic, I've started a thread in the modding section about my ideas for some marine PCs.

    Thanks for the comments! It means a lot! :)

    Its funny you guys should mention "my next project". I have been sitting here for days staring at my p180 with it begging for attention. But alas, I am at a serious block on what to do. :wallbash:
