    windex and a towel, oh aluminium you should be able to rub em off with a cloth or a micro fiber cloth, and some huffing on it.

    Windex isn't good for aluminum. Can't remember why but I just wouldn't recomend doing it. Rubbing alcohol and a paper towel works great.

    warm damp soapy soft cloth should do the trick, just remember to dry after wiping :p

    I'm cleaning it up first. This is my PC stripped down, so I can remove all the stuff. yesterday I spent last night figuring out which cables connect to where. I'm doing it next weekend, when I have time.

    That's right the hd is at the back of the case.
    When you look at your case you'll see that most things are popped together.
    If you drill them out, then you can remove the tray and some other things.:)

    Oh yeah for cutting just use a small saw blade.

    Is that a mirror in the bottom of the case, or did you just spend a LOT of time polishing?
