Great to hear! This morning we started milling the lower half of the front bezel.







I will be using this Black PSU and fan wires cable sleeve kit for the top I/O cables

Slow, but sure... We've been swapped with other obligations. The first of 2 lower half of the front bezel is finished. Next step is making the upper half and the compartment door covers.

Thanks for tuning in and commenting Shael! Finished the front Hot Swap bay compartment doors last night. These will be hinged with 1/8" rod. The 1/8" Opaque Red acrylic plates will attach to the back side of the door. Still need to make door handles.

That beast looks heavy. How much would you say it weighs right now?

Starting to all come together!

Lets just say Overnight shipping is going to be very expensive and Gordon needs to bend his legs before lifting it...

I finished the side panel inlays last night in between playing the Duke Nukem Forever demo... Now, I'm really looking forward to RAGE's release.

Mike wanted the drive faces Stealthed. This mod is very straight forward. I'm using 1/8" diameter rod as spacer, but you can improvise this to whatever you wish for your stealth drive mod... and the aluminum faceplate I've cut is 1/8" thick.







PC Mod Ruler as fence spacer?!





1/8" diameter recessed hole.



cutting 1/8" diameter rod



A drop of ScotchWeld DP-190 epoxy, before inserting 1/8" rod



Apply 3 layers of Scotch 4010 double sided tape, for a tad of flex in the faceplate for contact to the eject switch.





paper fits in gap between switch and 1/8" rod





You now push in lower left corner of the faceplate to activate the Eject.
