    Well done good sir!

    Not Yet Another G5 Mod

    Thank you for your kind words. I also really like using krylon, although I did end up using some rustoleum as well. I completely understand not wanting to remove that fan bracket again. It is a pain. I found for me the easiest thing to do on the bottom part is drop an appropriately sized socket...

    Powermac G5 front i/o mod

    I don't think there is any plug and play option to connect directly to the button's pcb. There was one that plugged in to the other pcb with I/O. I didn't keep mine either, because I wanted usb 3. It is super simple though to wire that button and light directly. + power switch on the right and...

    Not Yet Another G5 Mod

    Well done sir! I've contemplated that krylon dark before. I think that color looks real sharp. As to the power button, it just takes a little soldering to the button pcb. If you weren't concerned about a power light, you would only have solder two bits. Otherwise, it's three.

    Long time coming atx G5

    Ok, this time I'm done fer real fer real. I just didn't like the painted pci covers so I ordered nice shiny ones. Unfortunately the usb3 card had a black plate originally, which was the entire reason I attempted to paint them all silver. So I sanded the usb3 card down to bare steel and then...

    Thank you hasajacykacperek. Yeah, it's hard to find these old computers without some degree of wear and tear on them. Mine isn't perfect, it definitely has blemishes... I just like to chalk it up to character. I'm afraid that if I attempted to refinish the entire thing, I would inevitably have...

    Repainted the grille with a metallic. The can I had however was in gloss. After adding the matte clear, what little metallic the paint had went away. I knew it could happen... but was kinda hoping that it wouldn't. I like this color better than the rustoleum smoke gray I had before though. I may...

    I think I'm going to call her painted. I could use some input though. I'm not sure about the grill. I'm just not sold on the color. But I'm not sure if I want to go darker, or lighter. A different shade, or different sheen, or hell maybe even a metallic:

    I made the panel, and painted it. So happy with how it turned out: Then it hit me.... I forgot to cut out holes for the cables! Dang it Dang it Dang it!

    Just another shot of the hole: The front I was talking about earlier: This all looks similar to what I had a few posts up, but it took me a while to secure everything, and make adjustments to get the fit right. Not to mention the time spent looking for little hardware bits that I kinda...

    How to reuse only the fron power button on the G5.

    Mrdotelie is correct. Did this a couple months ago.

    Now I think it's about time to over-build a panel that sits between the motherboard and front fans.

    Long time coming atx G5

    Man, I have been away for some time. Work got stupid. Then it got stupider. Now it's just plain old brain dead. I have managed a little more on the case though. The plan I had for the usb c on the front didn't pan out. It wouldn't work how I wanted it to work without shelling out quite a bit of...

    Long time coming atx G5

    Sometimes I do think it would be easier just painting the whole darn thing. But I made up my mind long ago that when I finally got to do this I was only going to paint primarily the back. Alas, another set back however. After getting the port to look like I wanted I got around to testing it. I...

    I think the color matched better in post 17, but I think it blends better in post 18.
