It's a good idea and If gets to the point I desperately need it I will take your advice.

Is that cardinal paint fairly durable I have use some black spray paints in the past, but most of them weren't that great, we must have this paint here as well..can you give me a link to which one you referring to

I'm pretty sure it's BK59 https://shop.cardinalpaint.com/produ...nt=28494647235

I'll have to check once I get home to be sure. Just make your piece of aluminum, then apply a couple of light coats of self etching primer, then three coats of the Cardinal Black spray paint. I also used that on the aluminum angle pieces I made for the LED strips at the top of the case. Hard to tell the difference between that and the stock CaseLabs powder coating

Edit: and yes I would consider it very durable for spray paint, not as durable as powder coating of course.

Thinks I appreciate that, It sounds like I might have myself a project.

Yes If you don't mind double check and let me know, I am in Canada so I can order that paint and make something happen.

You can PM me if its easier.

Thanks again

Anyone remember the company that the power button plate upgrade options? Didn't someone else have one besides CL?

part 2:

there's gotta be a better place to find the raw hardware to modify my stock plate myself than ebay/amazon.

https://www.newegg.com/asrock-deskmi...82E16856989002

https://www.amazon.com/HDMIHOME-Prof...8425265&sr=8-1

the bundle on this is exactly what I need! that was easy - mini project time. There should be more than enough space to wire up 3.0 & 2.0 for less than $20, & some dremmel time.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

Am not after a case, but if you have any 140/280 mounts for sale as well, feel free to PM me.
Regardless, best of luck with your future sale.

The cable for the plate was made by Silverstonetek (an example, not the one used by Caselabs). If I'm not mistaken, this was the USB 3.0 version of the assembly.

They manufacture a number of like items with different configurations that you might be able to adapt to your needs.

thanks for that! Like I thought, those are 3.5 bay fillers, so modding that into the existing plate would'a been a PITA anyways.

I'm glad I went with the home brew route instead. It's a good reason to test out my new (not)dremmel rotary tool.

Yeah, im looking to sell it as a whole for now, I dont have 140/280 mounts though. I have a 120.3 side mount and a 120.2 front bay with grill mount.
