Sorry for the lack of updates; things are moving slow since I now have another co-project, a model of a '56 Ford F-100 that I'm modding with '07 GT500 running drivetrain and misc parts, as well as some crazy stuff. It's brushing up on my plastic skills so it ties in. Speaking of which, I cut down the front panel today! I needed to do this first to find out how much I can cut the height of the case itself. I can't cut the top panel yet though because the length change is dependant on clearance inside the case, which I still need to do.

Here it is after I cut it down. I used my rotary tool for the preliminary cuts, then a box blade for the closer cuts, and finally sandpaper to fine tune it before I glued it together. You can see the significant height difference. It's 5.125" shorter.


Here it is with glue on it, tape to hold it in place while the glue dries.


Are you leaving the front like that? I think the two tone, red/white looks really sharp.

It's going to be two-tone, but not with the stripes it has now. Originally I was going to paint it red, but now that I'm putting the HUE and some other 820 bits in the build, I'm thinking some Hue-less colors, like gray, black, and white.
