    "I started with a wine box (nothing strange, I'm french...) "

    With such a pseudo, no surprise... besides, red wine is the key of the french paradox :rock:

    Nice design.

    Uh, still here... you know you really should feed me....

    You know, foie gras, cassoulet, boeuf en daube... tasty but not really healthy food and yet, low cardio-vascular risk of death. Phenols in red wine have a protective effect.

    Just like in Cretan diet : cereals, vegetables, fruits, olive oil, meat 2 times a week, fish, and red wine.

    Thanks!
    The top will be black, but at start I want to do this mod in two parts, the socle like a dock station and the case (easier to move without socle) , but finaly the mod will be in one part and the door will be open by the top. That's why there no paint on the top which was the bottom at first....

    :eyebrow: sorry the more I became an old guy, the more I forgot my english lessons.... :D

    I don't know how they say "Patafix" in english, but I'm sure of this: Georges Lucas calls it "The Force". :D
    And your mods are still amazing, considering what you begin with balancing with what you reach (the top !). :thumb:

    I have the same problem... Which is scary, because I only know English.

    The design is awesome! I'm not a big fan of graphics on cases, but it works.
