Thanks man, Jonathan Ive move outta my way hehe wink.gif just kidding, appreciate your support!

Definitely leaning that way at the moment! Is the mATX version waterproof too or is that only the ATX version?

Thanks man!

Still really annoyed about the door not closing fully, have identified the issue as the top of the IO area clipping and then becoming stuck but I am not sure what I can do about it? The problem may be less prominent once I have re installed the locking mechanism though!

I have a small problem, I have found the source of the door closing problem, it was the foam tube that runs around the edge of the case so I pulled that off and it closed no problem but then I went to close it and managed to snap off one of the latches that holds the case shut, it would have been fine if it were one towards the front but it is the only one at the back so the rear of the door bounces back about 5-10mm when you close it, couldn't find any replacements on ebay and I fear that if I glue it it will only break again so that leaves with the only other option of buying a second G4, however just as I was typing this I remembered that we have 4 G4s in the workshop, may be able to beg for a swap wink.gif

If you can't swap, use super glue or pop-rivets, depending on the issue

yeh its plastic so gonna try glue but it does get bent a lot and put under a lot of strain so no idea how well it will hold up, I think Araldite will probably be my best bet

EDIT: Here is what I mean by the door won't close, I think I may have to live with it frown.gif

You could create some cool little latches that hold the door shut from the outside.. To further set it apart from the original design. Kind of like this, but with your stamp on it. thumb.gif
