    Well i was really surprised, very happy and honored. Wen i saw that i was in the Mod of the Month - June 2008 :D

    I didn't do much lately. Been a bit sick and tired like hell. But this is what i did today.
    Made the upper plate of the motherboard box.

    1.
    [​IMG]

    Not fully finish yet. The hole is four the heat sinks on the motherboard.
    Made the piece that comes under the motherboard box.

    2.
    [​IMG]

    Made the part that goes over the old 120mm fane hole.

    3.
    [​IMG]

    Hire you can see 2 installed.

    [​IMG]

    And hire you can see part 3 installed. And you can see the upper plate installed also.
    The upper plate is still a bit to big but that comes later. The pies in front is only to clamp the upper part. So it wont fall down.
    You also can see nails between the motherboard and the upper plate. These are four spacers. And will be gone wen the stuff is all glued.

    Hope you like the work so far :D
