Mayhap custom made tempered glass? That stuff can take a lot of abuse and won't scratch like plastic will.

Haha, yeah. The WC setup is ancient, I made a new perspex top for it cause the other was cracked to hell. I bought the setup online for $20, and the rest of the computer for $130. 6gb ram, q6600, etc etc. My priorities aren't really computers. I'd rather spend $1000 on a cheap car, and sell it on for profit tongue.gif But I see you said "Allow me to send you some free WC stuff". You're right about computer parts being scarce and expensive in nz, dunno why.. wish they weren't, though.

No, merely replace the acoustic suspension, like he did, just with the proper foam. Seeing as how you didn't know that surrounds also referred to that, the fail is pretty strong with you.

Besides, I'm about 99% sure those were never good in the first place.

I thought about shaping some plexi glass but never got around to it. Nothing is holding this in place but a wedge of folded cardboard, and surprisingly it stays put with no issues. I have all the sides and bezels torn off because I rebuilt the whole interior while trying to troubleshoot something.

Looks good. I thought it was wood before realizing it's cardboard lol.

I'm browsing through the thread but there are so many posts. It reminded me of this site from way back in the day. If no one has posted it yet I'll be surprised:
