this case is gonna be sooooo awesome when complete. however, I think you should go for a high-gloss black finish instead of flat, so it would look more like his actual helmet. and I third the vote for red leds. oh yeah, great work on the dvd etch as well, it looks teh shweet. keep up the great work, can't wait to see the finished product! biggrin.gif

Well, I'm here to please the people. wink.gif Luckily I got it off without tearing off skin. I post those as warnings and cautions to others. Much like me smashing my fingers, the super gluing of my fingers wasn't the first time it's happened, nor with it be the last...lol

This is kinda like what I thought about doing for my sith themed one... just a little less complicated. I like it, sense I'm a fan of the dark side. I just have to get back on the modding band wagon...

Okay, I'm back with an A LOT OF PICS!!!

Updates without pics:
1. I've cut the plexi to size. Fits the window perfect.
2. Male-to-Female SATA cable will be arriving on Monday

Updates with pics...my favorite biggrin.gif
Okay, so I've started to construct a switch that was inspired by Smartmod's SATA2USB mod. Mine differs because I'm not going USB. I'm going SATA 2 eSATA1. I will be soldering the eSATA1 cable when my order arrives. Where it's going to be mounted is still a secreto! Here are a few pics of my half-done switch.

Half-done switch:

Close up to show off solder job: unsure.gif

Switch in action. Game backup, up and running with SATA switch connected:

Okay, now here are the pics of the switch and the hole I made where it's going to be mounted.

"The Glory Hole" (ala Mike Hay):

The hole that I dremeled into the case:

Switch trying it's future home on for size: rolleyes.gif

The switch is going to allow me to switch from the DVD-ROM being recognized by the 360 mobo to the DVD-ROM being recognized in my PC.

Switch in Position 1 = DVD detected by 360 mobo.

Switch in Position 2 = DVD detected by PC mobo through external SATA connection.

Not sure if I'm making sense. uhh.gif blink.gif uhh.gif

dude that looks pretty nice, Not a big fan of Star Trek but they do look sweet ... Just kidding Star wars lol thoughty it get ya ! Nice cutout on the case, althought i first thought that you should have inverted the pic / stencle because your highlights should be shadows because at first glance i couldnt pick out his face, but it'll probably look diffrent once shes fired up man, have you go a picture of your tatts too? sick stuff. pop.gif Looks good man, Its almost got me in the mod to mod, Ive got a few ideas on paper but i dont want to spoil it. Im going to Mod it outright, and post it in parts biggrin.gif just a step a day or somthing biggrin.gif need the feedback, or , if i get too lazy or just dont have the time ill probably just make it a W.I.P too. Once again you done well.
