Ok to I peeled off the masking tape and lit of up the Logo!:

I just have to get the side panels and the new set of handles polished up beut she is up and running and puts like a kitten.

I'm going to work on the code and hopefully get rid of the occasion "popping" in the animation. the Arduino is Power via 5V from a Molex connector. so it comes on when the power supply starts. Also the Original Power button works great. But I have considered seeing if I would get a brighter white LED. the original on is bright but kinda small and next to the logo looks kinda dim. I mean I guess I could dial back the global brightness on the logo. But it looks sooooo cool.

Looks amazing!. What's the air flow like? From memory, the quicksilver G4 didn't have much in terms of perforations to allow for minimally obstructive air flow.
