    Thanks Spawn,

    Sorry its been taking so long for an update. My Chron's flared up and I haven't been feeling well. But after another Cat scan and $80 in meds, I'm starting to feel better.... That is untill the next flare up.

    So as promised, here is an update.

    I measured and drilled 4 holes and mounted some stud in the back side of the drive rack. They are kind of hard to pick out in the picture but if you look close, you can see them.



    These studs are to mount the servo controller.



    I came up with an idea for how to motorize the temperature monitor, USB ports, Reset switch, SD Media card reader etc. -Basically, I wanted a panel that would move and be replaced with an identical panel only with the stuff mounted to it. I thought about haveing doors open, then pull back and have the panel exposed, or move forward, or whatever. Then I just decided to have a triangular panel rotate around that had the same size. So I started with 2 Equilateral Triangular pieces.



    Then I found the center and drilled some holes.


    I mounted a servo horn, just like I did for the fan controller.


    Then I had to remove a large section of the drive bay support to mount the servo. here it is in its location (un mounted).


    I then made 2 panels and glued it together. This is one side.


    This is the "Back" side. Its left open to mount the objects and for wireing.


    Then I made some servo mounts.


    And finally mounted it to the case.


    Here it is with the panel attached.


    I still have to make a mount for the other side to pivot on so it won't Flop around.

    Here is an overall shot of everything in the case. FYI Its lying on the front of the case.


    Thats all I got done last night. It was getting late so I decided to leave off there.

    Later!

    Looking cool... I can't wait to see how this all fits together and works when it's finished... so, is acrylic nice to work with? (Someone posted thread about it but I'm a little slow atm, system resources are being used by other functions. Allocate more memory to desired task or upgrade your RAM to continue...)
