As I traced out the badges to make by hand, I posted this on Mnpctech Group on facebook ...."Sometimes when I use a CNC mill to make something, people say "I wanna see you use a Dremel" ...then when I do make something with a Dremel "How come you're not using CNC mill?" ...You can never please everyone..lol.



Working on the front hot swap bay door handles and case badges..



to protect the paint finish under the door edge, I've applied Black automotive vinyl film









The blank spot is for david's signature plate....

Here is the entire front bezel assembly. The Silverstone FP34S Premium 3.5inch Bay Card Reader & Front I/O combo module mounts at 45 degree angle in the top panel. It's held in place with m3 set screws, inserted into countersunk holes on each side of the top panel. David chose this model mainly for it's card reader and headphone jack. It's from performance-pcs here It will be mounted in the new top panel.











Upper portion of the front bezel attaches to the top panel with "key" style fasteners for 8/32 machine screws..









David's signature name plate..

It will be in November issue, Baez. Thank you for watching and commenting!

David's response after seeing his case, ...."I am SO excited. If I was wearing shorts, I'd have wet them."
