    It's so cool seeing that more people are modding q-tecs. Snitch is working on one the same size as mine, and yours is just like mine to, only a bit lower. I am looking forward to see what it will look like.
    You mention that you might get a bulgin switch for it. Have you considered doing like I did? I wanted a bulgin switch, but I though the price was a bit steep (140kr or something), so I made one. I even made a Mod guide to how I did it. In the mod guide I used a chieftec bezel, so you could basically just copy what I did. And you could light it with a yellow or orange LED. Maybe having it flash green on HDD activity. (you can't get those bulgins to flash on HDD activity ;))
    Anyway, you have my MSN, so just contact me if you have a question.

    Cool, yellow! Have you cut anything off the bezel, or have you just unclipped the separate parts? (when you clip them back on you will create scratches in the paint job, so don't disassemble the bezel for painting... What is the window supposed to look like?

    If I were a mod, I would have moved this thread right back to project logs, where it belongs now. Cough, penski!

    I don't suppose the B is for bard, is it?
    You can get plexi from any glass supplier. I've bought plexi a couple of times from Tr√łnderGlass. The last time I even got a lot of plexi for free (left-overs). Where do you live in Norway?

    I'm sure you could find a glass supplier at Eidsvoll too. They are everywhere. Any store that sells glass also sells plexi.
    If not, contact me and I'll see what I can do. Only problem is that I actually never have time to visit the glass shop, because it is only open during school hours, and not in the weekends...
