Hiii all,

Have been searching for long time already ( probably not in right place ) to find tutorials about " how to create my own front panel " but until now i haven't find it !! Does anyone of you stars of modding can help me ?! :$

There are thousands of different solutions. It would help to give more detail, like what kind of case, maybe a sketch of what you're trying to do, what materials, what colors, etc.

Well, you've got to start somewhere. Post up a pic of your case, and let us know some of your interests, any ideas you've had for it, or anything else that suits you and I can throw out some ideas to get you rolling.

well , you want to do a "door" front , but like ... not all the way down covering the front of the case door lol

we can help you on how to implementing and all that , but the actual design , that is up to you , i guess biggrin.gif

for me , it would be just a flat aluminum plate with some hinges and a magnet and thats it LO L


the cool LED effect is easy achievable . TLHarrell is some sort of master on that matter , he is your guy on that trick

What case are you using? I'll take a look at it in some more detail and see if I need more info to come up with a solution for you.

Well i thought about 2 differents ways how to do it .. As a "door" or as a window to slide down when i need to access the drives.. Does it make sense?
I will take a picture of my case and i will post here, because its just an old case that i'm recycling !
