Bad as it looked installed, it looks better than the stock cable I had temporarily installed.

Attachment 283658

This a shot of the sound card installed with the new cable.

Attachment 283659

It's a pity one can only see the PCB of cards from a normal viewing angle since they usually look cooler from the side you can't see.

Attachment 283660

I'm still waiting for the front panel audio cable extension to be delivered so I can reroute the front panel cable and connect it to the sound card.
You've done a nice job of the sleeving fairplay!
Would stripping just a couple of mm from the end of the heatshrink not help? as it would save you having to do it all again but leave enough cable exposed to bend it more.
Thanks!

I thought about that but it would leave the cable too long. I use superglue on the sleeve and shrink so they won't slip on the wire so it would have to be completely redone (although I can reuse the connector bodies; I have the tools for removing pins). If I do redo it, it won't be for a while; I have other things to do with my time. Oh well, live and learn. At least, I already have the materials on hand.

Lady F you should take some sequential pics when you make up cables and sleeve them along with the tools used.
Thanks!

I would do that but I have only two hands and need them both when making up the cables. There are plenty of YouTube videos on cable sleeving floating around.

Nevermind aye! Either way you still did a good job of the sleeving

Lady Fitzgerald,

As well as you understand the approximate bends from one component to the next you may want to pre-bend the wire while heating and shrinking the wrap. This way the wrap will help to hold that shape?
