    There... This exact model wouldn't work because the tabs would hit the inside wall when rotated, but you get the basic idea.
    You would have to make sure you can get your motherboard through the round hole. (No double meanings there...)
    100% plastic is the way to go. Frames suck. Tap plastics has some great video guides on how to use solvent glue.

    @John - I'm not asleep. I'm high on 5 gallons of Thompson's Water Seal. -good thing that stuff's for outside.

    Very good cheaps. I'll study those pieces.
    I'm still bouncing back and forth between a micro atx and an itx. I'd like to keep it small but I have a micro ATX board or two laying around and I'm trying to do this with as little coin as possible.

    *Brace for ridicule* I'd like to start playing with some watercooling also. I'm a WC virgin. *Ducks and covers*

    Eww. Thompsons.
    I work at a big orange home repair store here in San Anto and some idiot knocked over a fiver of that stuff. I know the feeling. It was a fun cleanup.

    Colorado... April... It has to be snow.
    Rain in Colorado is just snow that managed to melt on the way down, and that's rare.:hehe:

    Honestly, the more you order, the less it costs to ship. I swear by Delvie's as do many others who mess with acrylic alot. They always give me a shipping price-break. I'd really consider them. I don't know if you'll find anything local, TBH. Especially concerning the color-requirements. ;)

    Edit:

    I'm here, mate! Back from the longtime AFK! :D

    Yeah, I need to get some prices together. If I don't order a whole sheet of one color, they have to sell it by the square foot. I need to bite the bullet and just drive a couple miles down the road and check it out. It's a warehouse thing and apparently they're pretty cheap with lots of colors and designs.

    Anyway, planning is slow due to college, wedding plans, wedding registry, etc. Hopefully I'll be able to get something done this weekend. No finals for school so Yay!

    Interesting card reader. Built to help the user manage data?
    Called some plastics places around here today and it looks like I can save a few bucks by buying locally. I have free time today so I might be able to log some sketchup time and see what damage I can do with cheap's render of the turning mechanism.

    Come to Texas where you can experience all four seasons in a day!

    I'm in a high spot. I had to go out an hour ago and clear the drain points of my yard. The yard was completely under and water was getting close to getting in the house. The ditch in the back had 5+ feet of water in it. I would hate to live downstream.

    -So I'd say it's about average. :D

    We hijacked the sh*t out of this thread!
