IPB Image The window is a little crooked i painted the case with black krylon fusion looks pretty good

Heres what i used IPB Image

Actually it came with both those 2 of the cutting and a couple diffrent sanding tip sizes.

I dont have a clamp or anything so i used my foot while i drild the holes which is really,really stupid lol ahhhh what if i drilld a hole through my foot geez no more modding for me. blink.gif

But when i start cutting i have a really heavy tool box ill put on the dvd case to keep it steady.

Yes it does have sides, once you lift out the drive you have to flip it over to unscrew it then flip it back over and lift the case off.

The piece underneath is flat though atleast on the sides, an the circle in the middle comes off with a twist to the right if you look at it from the front i took it off because im going to paint the drive black once i get it all cut out and sanded.

Pretty spiffy accessory you got ther sure makes life easier i bet.

damn...I didn't have the balls to cut my sammy dvd drive up like that. I took an old pc dvd-rom and cut that bastage up! I never tossed, for just such an occassion. May the force be with you on this project. And um...you might want to take some "before" pics of all your appendages....just in case. wink.gif
