    Slight delay on getting the blast door working. Ran into some issues and couldn't get the two servos to play nice together no matter how I wired them. So I am looking into a USB controller that I can program via a windows interface. Hopefully then I will be able to program the sequence and adjust the speeds more accurately.

    So while I am waiting on that, I decided to focus my attention on another part of the case, more specifically, the other side panel behind the motherboard tray. This is a welcome change of pace, as I was getting totally bogged down and frustrated. Now I get to actually make some progress! I will upload some pics tonight so 'til then.

    Well, I thought I had more pics than this, but I dont. So it will have to suffice for now. Call it a teaser shot lol!

    I made up a cardboard template for the other side panel's opening, so I could place the 10" LCD screen along with
    the larger BSG lettering I had cut way back when I did the small lettering for the front. (thanks again to Moddersmart.com)


    I got something special planned for the lettering, but you'll have to wait to see what that is.

    So while I'm waiting for things, I thought I would delve back into my windowed slot loading dvd drive,
    and see if I could fix it. If you remember, the disc wouldn't fully load into the drive. It would go in and try to
    mount, but would just spit back out. I pretty much knew what I had done wrong, that I hadn't gotten the
    center ring positioned correctly. So after taking the drive cover off again, I carefully unstuck it off the acrylic window.
    Then I removed the cover off my spare drive and proceeded to take more precise measurements.

    Here is a shot of both covers side by side:


    Once I got the measurements, I transferred them to the window and re-glued the center ring back down.
    After ample drying time, I powered the drive up and loaded a disc in. This time it took the disc all the way, but
    didn't quite seat it onto the hub. As a consequence, it spit the disc back out. After a few more tries, I figured
    out that with just a slight bit of downward pressure on the window, it will seat. The center ring is merely there
    for the drive's actuating arm to press against momentarily in order to seat the disc onto the spinning hub.


    Here it is spinning away!


    And here's a shot with the disc ejected.


    So all I have to do is apply a little bit of pressure on the window for it to work. I will accomplish this by adding
    a small acrylic washer in between the medallion and the window, so when i secure the medallion down, it will apply
    that pressure and should solve the problem.
