if you are going to use a hammer make sure you use a big piece of wood as well to even out the pressure when you hit it.try to warm to panel up as well before you do it

The images may come up broken. It's ok there at the bottom as well..



Then there's this problem im having with the temp sensor it juts puts out L Celsius. Any suggestions? Where should I put the thread under for this problem?

I was gonna say, if the dents were massive use a CLEAN plunger.

You may not be able to do much with that.. Looks as if the metal on the side panel is really thin.. Thin metal will curl when formed or manipulated...


As far as the temp sensor, I would check to sensor lead to make sure it's not damaged and the two wire are not making contact with eachother..

What case is that.. I've seen it many times before in the past but can't remeber who makes it.. In any case, you maybe able to buy a side panel from them to replace that one..

I have no clue I got it from a friend who's father is a mover he picked it up for free. It was some clone company named "CERTIFIED DATA" The sticker on the bottom says it had some 800 MHz PC in it when it came off production...

Cut out he panel along the impression, cover the entire exterior with plexi/lexan....
To mount the plexi/lexan drill and counter sink small finish screws or get button Allen drive machinist screws that are black and fasten with nuts from the inside. Various recessed handles could be used to replace the removed pocket that is utilized to install the panel.
Looks great, adds strength too

Or simply fill, sand and paint the entire case but as said, that cover looks rather flimsy and will likely have issues regardless.

I would just sand and repaint the whole case with the same color but its a odd silver with little flakes in it If I can get some plexi and match the paint I will cut it and paint it..

I did it with my old case... It got really scratched after painting it.. It was painted bright orange (like orange box case orange) with a green plexi glass window.. every nick and scratch showed... I don't want a repeat of that...
