ok, well im about to start work on another xbox project, and am basically looking for some input/ideas and suggestions.

this xbox will comprise of a normal softmodded xbox with 80gb hdd, and pc dvd-rom installed. *but* the plan is to use 2 xbox lids cut down and fixed together, which will stand vertically.

the only trouble i may have will be with the front face of the box. but i'll make it look good lol.

i've got some doodles down on paper which i'll try and post up, but should hopefully have some pics to post up in the next day or so.

what do you lot reckon to this project then? any ideas or suggestions for me?

but it will look the same from the other side aswell. i'll probably make some form of a stand for it, depends how stable it is.

sorry should have mentioned that that crystal is actually a normal slimline that im just finishing off (theres a topic on here about that one somewhere!), i only posted that pic to describe what this one should look like.

this one will be created from 2 black xbox lids. (no spare crystal lids, otherwise i would make this a crystal one.)

To make the front panel, you may want to think about taking 2 stock front panels, chopping them in "1/2" and using top portion of each. Then just think of a nice way to incoporate the controller ports and DVD drive.
