Short update, let me start with this

I didn't like the silver housing on the fan, so I painted it black on the inside.

A picture with flash

And with ou flash, the amount of light output is less than with the silver paint, but looks better with the gloss black.

Next two pictures shows the fan in place, but with out the screws installed.


I think the fan looks much better now.

Now todays stuff, the plate to install a fill port for the WC.

The small hole saw, I'm gonna use

All the holes and design already done

Now marking the bottom plate, that will hold the fill port.

After cutting out the bottom plate, I did some flame polishing on the sides


After masking the bolders of the plate I painted the back plate on the back side black.

Attached the front plate and the fill port, those screws aren't gonna be visible; they will screw into the case and fasten the fill port plate, to it.

Final assembly, the top of the fill port is recesed into the green plexi and the clear plexi at the bottom hold the fill port to the case.

Again using some black washers under the screws to give it some depth.



Well short and simple, for what I seen so far I'm gonna be using more black and less silver for the case.

See you guys at the next post....................

I had to do some more work to the rads bracket, added some green plexi and painted the whole thing. I don't want to bore you guys with masking and painting pictures, so I just show you what I came with.




I'm been down lately " mental juices are not flowing " also I keep second guessing what I want to do next " confused and totally disorganized " can't make any progress without shutting down some of the voices in my head ( might have to increase the meds, dose ). I fell like I got a bunch of guys with differents opinions, arguing inside me. :duh: I can't continue until the shut the f$#@ off and get back to work. :wallbash:
Next time I will post some real progress or nothing at all :miffed:

Here you will see my "solution" to a dual dvd removable drive bay module. I wanted to be able to remove the dvd drive from the computer case and position it closer to me. For this I'm gonna use a USB interface and a power extension cord. At the end the module will have 3 cables going fom it to the computer, 2 USB interfaces and a power cord. But first lets start by building the DVDs carrier.

Start with the front bezel

I want to use handles to make easy to pull out

The handle looks too tall

Enter my friend the dremel


Now it looks better

After installing the second one, notice that one has no green washers, I'm going with those

Here you see the top and bottom of the carrier, is only has three pieces

I decided to paint a design on the top piece, to make less boring

I started with green paint for the design

After peeling off the masking tape

Then spraying a coat over it of gloss black paint

Now i'm gluing the bottom plate to the front bezel

Next is the top plate turn, to be glued

Next everything gets a coat off gloss black

After removing the tape, lets see what we got


Carrier in place, when inside the case you only gonna see the front bezel.

Some green trim pieces that I decided to add



Next I will continue with the cables and testing the whole thing.
See you guys at the next post.

Well now that I have the DVD carrier finish is time to work in the second part of it , the wiring for power and the USB interface. I got a hold of some 8' long USB extension cables, I will use them to replace the short cable that comes with the USB to IDE adapters that I have. This will allow me to pull the carrier out as far as 6' away from the case; closer to me.

First let check if I have enought space for the cables, on the pocket that I had created under the DVD carrier. Kinda late for that, I made it without taking any measurements, but I'm happy to find out they fit.

I need a panel piece to cover the gap under the dvd drive module.
Already I had cut and paint a pice of 1/4" plexi




Now to make some trim with a piece of scrap, green plexi


Add the finish trim to the black plexi piece and presto...


Now you can see it in place...


Now I take apart the USB interface and see where the USB wires are solder to.

After some desoldering and removing the short cable, I soldered the long extension cable to it. Notice the green shrinktubing.

So I need to change the color of the housing from blue to green


They look alot nicer in green.

Next is the power connector ( green UV reactive ) cables for the DVDs




Lets check to see if all this cales still fit, its close. But it looks fugly.

Some cable coil wrap take care of the wiring mess and make it look better plus still fits.

This is how it look when the cables are plug at the back of the DVD carrier.


See you guys at the next post....

Even though it is not my style at all (I like really plain/solid color cases!) I think it is amazing, especially the amount of work that went into it. I am really impressed, congrats and keep building

Work in the left panel continues.
Can this be called modding or mass production?
12 plexi pieces cut, they go in the removable drive bays

12 pieces of plexi, frosted in one side

12 pieces of mesh , already cut and sloted

12 common removable hds bays

12 Hds trays with mesh installed

12 Hds trays with plexi trim installed

Now I had added the DVD drive carrier to the case

to that I add 12 HDs bays and a CDRW

for a grand total of 15 usable ???? bays

A close up of the bottom part.


After all that , I didn't include the part , when I build all the wiring assembly for each individual HD bay ( they all will have an LED to iluminated the green plexi from the rear) , was a lot of work x 12.

Next, work continues on that side; I got to cover that top gap .., see you guys at the next post...
