I was actually surprised that the acrylic didn't melt! unlike the case did when I used the Dremel. It was a lot easier. Though I do caution to wear proper attire, cuz this crap itches if it gets up your sleeves and super messy. I wouldn't doubt that the wrapping on it helped as well.

Yeah, the shavings are a pain, what bit did you exactly use to do the cut? and what is the thickness of the acrylic?

I used the Demel Thin Cut 1 1/2" EZ Lock bit. I cut just above the tape and after that I used the sanding bit that comes with the Dremel and sanded it down to the line of the tape

The acrylic an 8th of an inch thick. pretty then, but it works very well.

I got it from Taps Plastics

they cut it to size for you and they have a great selection. I would totally recommend them to anyone

ALRIGHT!!! Time for the updates! I am 99% done. I am just waiting on Kingston to send their goodies and we are golden.
The mod panel came in so I was able to fit it into the cut pieces I did. The only flaw is I wish the website I got this from was a little more descriptive on their sheets. I wanted it with bigger holes but the one that came had way smaller holes then I thought. But it still looks great and cant really complain.

It came out well I think. There's nothing really special to it...though when my creativity comes up with something it will prolly change.

SO here is what the front will look like. I kinda like how it goes from black to white, black to white.

Here is the last thing I needed to do with the acrylic.

Tonight is where all the magic happens and I will be putting everything in the case. Fillin her up with some D-water and hoping for the best.

I'm pretty sure it would work with aluminum. Its just a hand drill with a 1 inch wide bit on it.
