The cutting looks great and I can't wait to see the finished mod. Those LEDs would look awesome if you set em' up parallel to the sides of the panel so they shine light across the face.

Like this, except with more glowing and awesomeness

Default I like

Looking forward to seeing this mod as it progresses. I really want to see how those red lights turn out if you decide to do that.

I hear that the Cold Cathodes come out more orange than red. I believe that it can be rectified by putting red cellophane over it, but I'd go with the LEDs. I wish I had a spare case lying around just to try that on it.

actually i cut it out with a dremel, i posted the picture i used on the first page so print that out and use it as a reference, to get it on the case i just sketched it with a pencil, it wasnt exact but it was close enough for me and i am going to put a peice of plexi glass behind it
