    The destination from the structured Plexiglas
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here I drilled 2 5mm holes...
    [​IMG]

    ..and here a 7mm
    [​IMG]

    I mount 2 white 5mm LED's and a rocker switch.
    Now I can enjoy a illuminated "back" panel.
    [​IMG]

    I cut here again the heads of the LED's. Why? See for yourself:

    It never can be to early to hide the cable.
    [​IMG]

    New TFC hoses for the inside.
    [​IMG]


    For my electric I need a extension up to the Top.

    The material:
    [​IMG]

    The"Input"
    [​IMG]

    The connection
    [​IMG]

    Done
    [​IMG]


    This rest will be...
    [​IMG]

    ...after a minute with the Dremel...
    [​IMG]

    ... a visual-protection for the upper electric and a bracket for the cardreader.
