    Thanks :thumbup:

    Here's what I'm staring at right now :)

    I closed the case and experimented a little with where to put the UV leds to get the best result. This is what it looks like now:

    Unfortunately, the panel is not as clear as I'd have liked. The pictures you saw here are without the side panel.

    I tried to polish it with PlastX, but that didn't do the trick. I'll have to look for some other solution.

    Here are some more pictures with the rest of the panels added :)

    Finally finished :D

    I managed to clean up the look of the front panel by adding a vinyl sticker around the less pretty parts. I also added some mesh over the hole for the PSU, it's looking much cleaner now.

    I painted the opening side panel black from the inside, so the cable mess wouldn't be visible
