Quick Update

Made a mistake in the drive cage, as you can see on the previous post the sata/power ports are facing outside the case, which should be the other way, so i had to do a few cuts to be able to revert it.

Found this 2.5" to 3.5" adapter from an old Corsair SSD, which fits perfectly under the 5.25" bay.

Been wondering what to do with the frontal panel. Here´s an idea i came up with, kind of a CM Cosmos style redface.gif




The problem now is how to cover the hole for 5.25" drives bay.

UPDATE


After some long vacations , i've finally do some more progress on this. Did some changes on the desing and i'll make a more "simplier" front panel with metallic mesh.
As you can see i already did some cuts but it still needs a lof of sanding so it looks better.
Also the location of the On/Off switch will be diferent since the one that's on the middle won't be usable anymore.

Attached the mesh to the front panel with some epoxy glue last night, which worked very well. Also did some sanding on the edges to reduce the surplus mesh.
I'm planning to add some bondo / metal filler to the whole front panel and sand it down for a more clean finish, since it has been scratched a lot lately.
The mesh i used had a lot of rust on it that's why it looks too "dark".
