Default Back to the basics - modding that dull grey Box with a twist

See how an ugly dull box turns into one spectacular looking case, guest writer Antonio shows of his creation: sandblasted side panels, professional painting and near unbreakable windows are some of the excellent features of this "big black" casemod.

An Acryl Panel of 1mm thickness should be strong enough.

Very nicely done.

No side panel fan, makes my day.

Don't get your point - that's a good hand held drill with over 12 volt battery pack. Of course, a drill press may be more impressive, but so are CNC, BMC machines which are unnecessary for the task at hand.

It was just a joke . I was referring to the fact that it was standing there w/o anybody holding it.
I know, my jokes suck

Didn't get your sense of humor for a few seconds.
