Looking better and better!

I have to say I think the front panel needs some special treatment. Clear plexi on the sides and top will look great; especially if you build some cool mounting gear. I know I want it but I do not know what it is. My first thought was chrome but that would really not look good on the black and green box. Maybe using black or smoked plexi on the front?

I am really looking forward to what you do.

Yes I am thinking either a smoked plexy, or just solid Black. The top as well, to match the front. Heck for sides, I am thinking of either going Smoked plexy, clear, or maybe a UV green as well! First I will get measurements, then I will figure it out!

As for that "floppy drive" in my desk, it looks that way, but it is actually just a spare card reader I have laying on top of my server. Optical illusion! (although it gives me a great idea on what to do with that card reader now!!)

This looks really good.

Its great to see the step by step progression from the old case you found to this.

Very impressed and motivated to make more changes now.

BTW: I now have a digital camera so I can actually take a good pic
