    That thing for sure won't work! The tinyest piece of dust or finger print would ruin it... Good luck though, looks cool :D

    ha ha... well
    im not going to say much, but its not dead... i just need to go out tomorrow and buy a new picture frame lol, as ive kinda ruined the perspex.

    whween i started the drive it 'squeked' and i realised the spindle was stuck on the perspex, even afetr i checked the levels, it was touching within not even milimetres.

    im gonna get a freesh piece of plastic tomorrow, and mount it on top of the old top, instead of under it.
    again, im totaly not expecting the drive to work ! lol just fancied a quick go at what is considered 'modding taboo' lol

    i scrapped the drive that you see pics of for now, and i pulled out a more suitable western digital drive, whcih had a better top for modding.
    window is on, drive works, and im playing music off it now !!
    the downside?
    its only 6GB lol

    where can i host a video, recorded on my phone ? i can stick it on my PC when my brother gets back :D

    im already planning to buy a cheapie 80 gig SATA drive, and mount it so you can see it ticking when you open the door on the front :D ( in the 5.25 bays )
    although this would be alot easier with a lappy HDD

    Any white specks and spots you see on the images are remainders of polish, the pump was a nightmare to polish so its still covered in the stuff lol !!
    So, thats all the cpmonents for the rig done and dusted. my fave has to be the Maze, that thing looks like its been dip[ped in glass :-D

    the only thing thats holding me back is connections, a T and a Y ive lost my Y, and it was blue anyway :

    wellt theyre laquered in 2 pack laquer, then wet sanded down to remove and bits of dust, runs, imperfections or orange peel, with 2000 grit paper, then polished using G3 polish, which ive ran out of lol so im using 'autoglym paint restorer'
