Thanks, I was planning on playing with the lights, but last night I just did a quick postage tape mounting as opposed to a full out mounting session since I still have some work to do before I can install the window. biggrin.gif I was planning on doing double sided tape on the official mounting for 2 reasons: 1. adhesion, 2. spacing. As far as the cold cathode, I think that the card stock idea is really good, it will help create a darker background for better viewing quality. thumb.gif Thanks for another good idea!

Looks good. You sure you haven't done this modding thing before?

Thanks biggrin.gif I've never modded a case to this extent. I've done lighting and some acrylic work, but nothing as detailed as the window I did this time. Thanks for the 3 layer design idea, that turned out really nicely!
