|wow that looks awesome!!! very smooth, perfect effect for a halo LE!!!! cant wait to see the low profile done though!!!|
It looks much better on something other than a stained wood table. I will try to get some pics of it on a different surface. It has 5 LEDs along each sides and 6 LEDs along the front all wired in parallel. A lot of soldering.
Thanksgiving is coming up and I plan on doing a lot of work to it then. I just bought some more sandpaper, Dupli-Color primer, and Dupli-Color clear coat today. I looked and looked at the paint but could decided on a color.

|where did you mount the leds on the sides, under the lip? and did you make your own led strip thing like they use on the led rings?|
The LEDs are mounted to the bottom of the case with the help of a very small dab of hot glue. I made sure to be tedious with the hot glue knowing that it is visible through the case. It even looks good from outside the case with the lights off. As far as wiring goes, I used 30 gauge kynar wire. Each LED had a separate wire running from it to the next LED. Plus its a parallel circuit so actually each LED has two wires going to the next LED.

|So you put a switch on that right?|
As of yet no, but I plan to when i wire up the rest of the LEDs. Actually when sitting level with the xbox across the room on the couch it is not as blinding as it looks. It does not affect game play or movie watching at all. It would be nice to watch movies in the complete dark though, hence the switch.
