Yep. Function over form any day.


Performance > Aesthetics

Looking good there LB
Just reading it now, I made a typo, meant "...than one is the best looking, but sits there doing nothing"

But you seemed to get what I meant

How about one that works great and looks it?

I also now OFFICIALLY have a key start switch.

I put that in last night. The grill it is mounted in works for now, but it is too fragile to keep it there. I got a piece of aluminum that I will use to mount my fan controllers and light switches on. I plan to put the key switch in the bottom left corner, my momentary toggle switch with aircraft switch guard right above it, and the fan controllers top right, switches bottom right.
I will mount it in 2 bays right where the switch is now.
It will look good

Sounds like a top secret setup. I'll be watching for more pics as soon as they are de-classified.

Lol. I can make a diagram if you would like.

I just took apart 2 old CD drives for their bottom chassis (to use to screw into the case).
Now I need to figure out how to get them connected to the plate....

I don't need a diagram, I'm not going to be doing anything like that myself but I would like to see how yours turns out.
