So, here begins my second PowerMac conversion, this time armed with prior experience and more help from Minihack!
The plan so far is to epoxy the plate flush with the rear of the PowerMac and then paint/powdercoat it as a whole unit, similar to Mike7060's Mod
Here is the subject - a near mint condition PowerMac G5 that stopped working only a few weeks ago.
Apologies for the pink carpet, I'll get some better vanity shots once it's home.
And here is the plate that Minihack created next to the PMac
It of course lines up beautifully
It's a shame I can't use the original IO - it looks brilliant, but it seems like too much fuss for 2 USB2 ports to cut and then solder the original IO
Upon opening the door, I think I can see why it's broken ... black heatsink - not good!
Any comments or advice on which epoxy to use (JB Weld, Generic Aluminium Epoxy etc..), or anything at all would be helpful!
