Here is the process of the led mid plate, this process should work for everyone, although you will have to choose your own dimensions obv
Something to cut the plexi with, i used a score and a dremel
epoxy or screws to fix the angles
leds strips. i used 5050 white leds that had bare leads
Measure the size of the midplate you want. i used a junk thin piece of plexi that i made a template out of, cardboard or poster board will work too.
Once you are satisfied with your template transfer it to the mirror sheet of plexi, cut out the mirror sheet, this will be your base.
Make sure it fits
measure and cut your angles. if you have a rectangular midplate, then it should be easy!
fix the angles ontop of the mirror plexi. make sure to leave enough room as to not interfere with the door panels or motherboard tray.
once the angles are set, run your LEDs along the bottom corners of the angles. the LEDS should already have adhesive tape on the back of them to hold them on.
Measure and make a template for the frosted piece and white piece of acrylic. Note that this piece should sit flush with the tops of the angle, but thin enough to sit on top of the LEDS. for my example the angles were 3/4" tall. i used 1/8" thick frosted plexi and 3/'16th white plexi. those plus the width of the leds was a perfect fit
cut template out on frosted and white plexi.
Snap it all in. if done correctly it should be hard to snap it in but it will eventually go into place .
wire it up. the leds have a red and black lead alrady soldered on. so red goes to 4 pin molex yellow and black goes to the black next to the yellow on the molex cable.
power it on and profit Edited by abirli - 6/14/13 at 7:18am
