Lighting Suggestion

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Need a suggestion, i have been slowly working my PC70 over the last month and the idea i currently have for the front face is almost finished, i attached a pic of it but what i want to do is have the bay cover i have cut to fit inside sitting back of the front face by maybe 3mm (using standoffs) with the lighting just glowing around the edge of it casting a bit of a shadow (attached in the other image i draw up)....

anyone know what would possibly be needed or have tried it before because i really don't wanna go spending money on cold cathodes only to find that i need leds and what not, any suggestions would be appreciated.




Still waiting on my sleeved cable extensions so i can tidy the inside and gotta fix up the side panel windows yet and gotta polish it all eventually so shhh lol.

Options are endless depending on space really and what you are considering

You could have a piece of acrlic a bit bigger so it goes round the edge and light it up with leds or add mirrors or a combinations or cathodes and mirrors etc etc

Use your imagination you will figure it out when your ready
