    Small update. I've decided to go with the Red color. but its going to be a little different. I used some red leds and white led's to light up the samples that I got and I found that the Red fluorescent with a red led actually give a pretty good red glow. And when the light is off, it looks orangish. so I've decided to go with that.

    I placed an order for the plexi yesterday. I got some 1/4" black plexi for the bottom of the case. and some 1/8" black plexi for the trim as well as the red fluorscent. I also got a sheet of 3/16" smoked plexi for the top window

    I also picked up some 1/2"x1/2" aluminum angle and red anodizing paint. this will be used for the support braces to hold it all together.

    Lastly I ordered some red led's for the lighting.

    Now I just have to wait for all this stuff to come in and I'll be ready to start when I get back from my trip.

    Well guys, tomorrow my Plexi should arrive. Today I placed an fairly large order for some parts. Fans, switches, sleeving, LCD, etc.

    Unfortunately, I'm heading out of town tomorrow for some work training and then a long overdue vacation so I won't be back for another 2 weeks. Hopefully when I get back, all my parts and materials will have arrived and be ready to go.

    So expect the work log to really startup in a few weeks.

    Until then,

    Peace out!

    Got back from the work trip and have just enough time to do my laundry, and repack for my Vacation.

    While I was gone, my plexi arrived. I haven't had a chance to take any pics of anything yet. but I will when I get back.

    I also placed an order for a bunch of parts. Fans, switches, lcd etc.
    they should get here next week too.



    Later.

    That's terrible that they haven't upheld their end of the agreement. I hope they come through for you. I find it hard to believe they are willing to risk bad publicity and losing out on a ton of free advertising. I wish you the best of luck with them.
