While I thought about the grill I made up some new patches for the front.
The one covering the large opening is actually two riveted together so it sits flush with the front. Hopefully with it all painted up you won't be able to tell it's not a solid front. I may have to do some bondoing.
Then I thought f%@* it.
I'm deciding between two different layer orders.
#2 is my pick. I'll have to cut back some of the case and trim the mesh to fit there. So it will go fan>case+mesh>acrylic>grill. You shouldn't see the case layer at all.
Tomorrow (hopefully) will be the rear fan grill and then I'm not sure what. I need to make up a to do list.
-finish fan grills
-door mounting hardware
-8-pin cpu routing hole
-cut out holes for dvd drive and fan controller
-make secondary I/O panel
-cut slots for ccfls in acrylic
-buff out scratches in acrylic, smooth some of the uneven parts on the bends
Hmm... can't think of anything else off the top of my head.Edited by shinji2k - 11/7/09 at 10:24pm
