    Thanks mate. I believe you will.

    Case is now covered with dust, it was nearly month in garage so it should be more shinyer when finished.

    Don't bother making a new part. As soon as it's finished, you will find the old one.
    Grinder burns suck. They take forever to heal.:(

    You're right, that's what usually happens when you have lost something.

    Actually it slipped twice :sigh:

    Two things in one picture. I did three this kind of led stripes to be attached around the case to lit up some hot spots:

    And you can see that, i really are little too careless with power tools sometimes. :nono: "Turvaton kyhertäjä" indeed, i would say in Finnish. ;)

    Those led stripes are made using recycled materials like nearly everything in this case.
    Case has cost $200 so far inc. fans and coolers (without components), so it would be weird to spend 50€ for sleeving kit, allthought all wires will be hided.

    Did this kind of web today:

    [​IMG]

    Used plasma cutter and did some tidying with dremel, then i did some bendings with bending brake.


    [​IMG]

    Thought that i might use it here, allthought its not finished, needs more dremeling and sanding.

    That's one option for this side.

    I like that web on the corner, too! :) What do you think of having the windrider (horse) running into it /under it? (I mean placing it on the other top corner, kinda extending from the front spider?
