Mar. 22 and Mar. 23
 
So after a day to let the bond cure and a couple cuts so I can fit the slot drive in easily

I used a grinding tool to cut the slot in the middle of the metal as well as grinded the paint off the metal so the next set of bond will hold.

So now just another 24 hour to cure.

Well that is all for today.. still need to buy another 5mm (.22inch) plexiglass to redo the motherboard tray.
 
Been a kind of slow and mellow day. Went to a local hardware store and got another Plexiglas
 
 
Instead of using measurements for a mATX I went ahead and used my old gigabyte ATX board.

I decide not to play around with the tray and just do it simple and easy.

Since I had problems with the other motherboard tray trying to set it into place I decide after beating my brains to make a template. 
 
 A Simple template for the 4 remaining original mac motherboard spacer.

From here I plotted out where I need to drill, Of course I will hold off till after I cut out the new motherboard tray.

It was a lazy day today there for I was a lazy man. So I didn't do much..
 
 I order a set of "platinum gray" sleeving 1/8 and 25feet and a I/O panel for the hackintosh as well as a new shirt for myself to wear. Old shirts getting faded quick. Should learn not to work in new clean shirts haha.

lol thanks XP yeah i was nervous when I was cutting into the case for the first time hahaha. 

 

I still need to cut some more up toward the audio hole just under the original hole for the power button. I will do the same as I did for the disc drive slot only for the audio and quad USB. 

 

Hopefully my order will arrive soon some time this week to weekend.

Mar. 31
 
So few updates since last time, I cut out the new tray as well as got some inserts and my order finally came in today. 
 
So I did the cutting and drilling to place the new ATX size motherboard tray into the case. 
100_2207.jpg
 
Placing the case back together temporarily 
 
I slide the PSU plexi back in place :/ Do not like how it looks to short on either end So I will have to redo the whole thing again with internal measurements. 
100_2205.jpg
100_2208.jpg
100_2209.jpg
 
As I said my parts finally came in :) So now I can work on the front of the case 
100_2210.jpg
 
The new I/O USB and audio port
100_2211.jpg
 
One thing for sure, buying the sleeving was a risk especially buying it for eBay. I was hoping buying "light gray" would be close to the Silver gray tight weave I got from FrozenCPU. Oh well :) I will still use both plus the white sleeving and platinum gray for the mod. 
100_2212.jpg
 
 
I went ahead and order a set of 6mm spacer for the motherboard. I plan on mapping out the insert for both a ATX and mATX motherboard. 
 
List of still have to do
 
*Finish front I/O panel
*Bodyfill the slot
*primer
*finding matching paint for the case
*measure placement for ATX,mATX motherboard
*set insert
*set up the back I/O panel
*finish PSU and setup lights.

thanks, but I'm only at the beginning of the work.

 

@Razzle: Yes, it's not perfect, but better than nothing.

 

The plexy is nice, but i suppose you painting it, right?

You'll change the color of the case?

If yes, what colors you have choice?

 

P.S.

I see you are in Miami, I would not be wrong, but  i  remember that I had relatives who lived there, I have to ask my uncle...
