"Covering up" a cdrom window i dont like.
« on: July 16, 2003, 05:10:23 PM »

A few months ago i decided to cut a window in my cd rom and also one in the top of the case, but i have decided that i dont like the look of it.
Also i have a new cdrw/dvdrom combo, which i dont want to go cutting up.

I am now thinking of a way to cover up the cutting of the window.

I am fully open to sugestions.

So what do you think?

*edit* i will post some pics as soon as i get my digi cam back

you could replace the window with smoked plexi so you can't see through it, and maby put a light behind it so that it still looks nice. Or etch the window with something colmpex so that it is not transparent.

You can just paint on the plexi if you want.

Well you could but a fan and a fan grill there. Depends how big the hole is and how much room you got to work with.

No room for lcd display, because my top bay will soon(ish) be home to a 4" tft screen fitted in the style of a car tv head unit, also described by X24 in a post on these forums.

I really dont like the idea of painting or frosting the plexi, because its the actual window i dont like the look of.

The only ideas i have so far are to cut the hole out a bit different, and fit either a shet of pollished ally, or a sheet of carbonfibre, i also will stealth my optical drive, and also the tft, when it is finished.

the stealthing will be done using the same matererial as what ever i use to blank the window
