    Small Update! - Dremel Time!

    So this isn't a huge change but I decided to make my first cut on the acrylic. Since I don't really have a need for a disk drive and space is limited, it was time to say goodbye to the slot load portion of the acrylic.

    Interesting enough, the size of the slot load cut and the air vent opposite are the same size when including the angled portion of the slot load hole.

    Here are the results!

    First rule of cutting: Tape, Always Tape!

    And Cutting! :geek:

    Sanding from 600 to 12,000 grit. :crazy:

    Polishing to get the clear finish!

    Finished Result! Can you tell which side is the original?

    Original vs new

    Next on the To Do list is getting rid of the slot load on the metal frame! I'm still playing with the idea of using the original circle design or cutting out the other side as well and replacing it with something similar.

    New update coming soon!
    I've got some parts coming in related to my cooling system! ​

    Ended up putting this project on hold for an undetermined amount of time. I've swapped focus to a Streacom DB4 project since I came across a deal on the case that I couldn't pass up. I may end up posting pictures once I have a bit more done.

    Sorry If I've disappointed anyone!
