"fenced In" Project
Posted 09 May 2006 - 05:01 PM
cut most of the X out, clean it up real nice, and put this green chicken-wire kinda stuff under it, and then finish it with plexiglas....
it'll give it a look as if there was a fence under the lid, and maybe i'll leave the shielding, or take it out...
my only problems:
1. dont got plexi, i got plastic cd cases that i can trim to work...
2. dont got a dremel, any suggestions on how to get the lid cut?
3. cant find my hot glue gun... hot glue would work, right?
4. i work, so this might take a while...
PICS will be coming of what ive already done to my baby...until then, any suggestions, comments, flames...post em

First, get the proper tools- if your gonna rush a mod then its not gonna turn out near a nice in the end
And two, Try it.. This could be aswome.. (if I'm getting your idea correctly). But also remember cooling. Your xbox has to be able to 'breathe'. As for attaching the fencing to the X, I would use bondo. It easy to use and when it dries is as solid as a a rock. As for the plexiglass to the Fence, I'd probably use some type of clear epoxy to attach the two. This is my two cents.
(p.s. take the shielding out Imo. Unless you painted it, then it could be cool )

but yeah, in regards to the plexi, i cant afford it...even tho i got a job LOL
and the only dremel in my house belongs to my dad....he wont let me use it even a little
ill post some pics when i get the camera tonight...
and to clarify how it would look...
imagine the x cut as if i was gonna have a DVD window, cept all 4 points would be cut..
when you look in the windows, you see this green chicken-wire kinda stuff in there, and the metal shielding...
IMO this would kick arse

what if, after i finish installing this fencing, wire up some led's to show HD activity and maybe some other activity, besides LAN, cause the only lan i have is ftp...any other kinds of activity that i can do? maybe DVD drive activity?
