    The case is built out of Lucite. It is probably over 4 years old, and has been sitting in my close the past 2 years. It was hand built. It is not your typical acrylic case, it doesn't have that kit feel, there are not square corners, and no brackets at every corner holding flat pieces of acrylic together. It has all been heated and bent to form the curves. There is only 8 bolts/nuts in the entire thing. 4 hold the side panel on, and 4 hold the removable front bezel on. It has 2 80mm Blue LED fans in it, and a cover for 2 of the 5.25" bays that houses another, but the fan has been removed. There is also a 5.25" cover that gives you front I/O ports. It has 2 Etched Appliques, the Biohazard on the side panel, and the Dragon behind the motherboard. They give the look of etched glass. The power supply mounting has been modified to hold the power supply upside down or right side up(pic 4).

    After a few years lugging it around to different LAN parties, it has some wear.

    The place where you screw in PCI cards is cracked at the top and bottom, right where the material was notched out to connect to the case. It is cracked all the way through, and moves slightly if you put a lot of pressure on it, but it has never even come close to falling out, and still works just fine.(Pic 5)

    There are some pretty big scratches right over where the PSU goes.(Pic 6)

    The bottom left corner of the front Bezel has a crack in it.(Pic 7)

    I don't really know what to ask for this. So I'll just start at $25+Shipping and say that I will be VERY open to offers.

    I'm sure there is, but I really don't want to spend the time on this case, as I will never use it.

    Wherever I can find the iron.
    If it was a square design, I'd be interested. Not a bad custom case for $25 plus shipping.
