Ooh, another Silver Prodigy build! The second one of its kind biggrin.gif This is gonna be interesting.

Looking at your workshop and access of tools, you'll probably beat me to the punch wink.gif I'm doing my mods with my hardware already running inside, so it's a lot of putting parts in and out and doing things bit by bit.

Dremel, a drill, ruler, tape, sand paper, and clamps is all I used for the mods. So you really don't need that much to cut up a case the measurements on the other hand have to be precise.

I guess I should have taken a picture after the dremel work but those pictures are actually after quite a bit of filing and sanding. I probably spent more time filing and sanding than I did actually cutting with the dremel.

Then I need more practice then tongue.gif I just dremeled through a 1/4" thick sheet of acrylic and spent loads of time filing to get the edges as close to smooth as the stock cuts as possible. The fan holes you cut are especially very good.
