Thanks Talon, enjoying my play-time.

Finished side panel edging. Get an idea of the case now. The solder looks rough but is quite smooth and the primer should fill any low spots. They look black from light sanding.

Thank you chibi man and wizdumb 1, glad you are enjoying it.

Working on small things as well as had to make a brace. Needed to come up with something that did not look like a brace but would function as one. Hdd cage will now mount on brace plate. So simple, yet took sometime to figure out.

Still working, made 5.25 mounting tray, will hold 2 devices. Spent a few days cleaning up all the corners making the solder joints neat.

Thanks Jokester and iSKW.

Well do you like the original aluminum one OR the new and improved steel one?
