One thing I thought about trying to make is a cover plate for the power supply but I suck at metal work and it would look horrible.. I may try it with plexiglass and frost it.

Acrylic would work well. I know many that use acrylic instead of metal for a PSU cover. When painted it is very difficult to tell the difference between the two materials. Cost is also a factor, plexiglass/ acrylic at least in my area is very reasonable but aluminum seems a bit high. I tend to use recycled metal that way it keeps my cost down but I end up doing a little more work to clean the metal.

I hear that, The aluminium cost for my mod was huge, including the laser cutting the total came to around $250-300 from memory.
For my motherboard tray I bought the sheet whole sale and got it much cheaper, I know you guys arent in Australia, but for reference this is my supplier:

They cut it down on site to your specs, For 1mm thick it worked out to around $10 per kilogram.

I think I'll do the acrylic and just paint the front side that faces the case and do it frosted on the top like I said and just add a ton of light under it so the side of the case will glow.. Hmm Ideas Ideas lol!

Sounds like a plan! I look forward to seeing it. Good luck.

A picture of one I made for just the PSU with acrylic, I kept that one really simple and it was super easy.

Small update, I'm working too much to get anything done.








Pretty happy with how the crossfire bridge cover came out. I should have the back plates put on this week too, I just need spacers.
