    It's a matter of taste but in my opinion hardware is nice to look at, even if it's not latest cutting-edge. And Udit's hardware is nice awesome.

    I'd choose a windowed case anytime over a non-windowed one.
    There's also the advantage that you notice immediately when it's time for cleaning.

    Nice job d.d.d. :)

    1.5hr update

    removed mesh. was easy and tool free. just bend the tabs out, and push it out.

    then masked it up

    started cutting.



    first pass with the wheel
    [​IMG]

    after final pass, one side cut. three more and curves still left.
    [​IMG]

    first curve done, 3 more to go
    [​IMG]


    i could only do the big curves with the dremel, for the small curves i just cut it down across the curve and then filed my way down to perfect.
    [​IMG]


    this is what the screw looks like after painting. only did the head.
    [​IMG]

    edges cleaned and prepped for paint, and painted with high gloss enamel black,
    [​IMG]


    whole thing left to dry

    took off the masking today morning, paint was okay, but the inner side had burrs and i wasnt satisfied with the top left corner, so i filed the whole thing again. and used a card to take off the burrs and paint edges. time for another lick of paint with a sponge.


    unmasked. edges dont look good
    [​IMG]

    Final finishing of the edges. defined the top left corner a bit better.
    after filing
    [​IMG]


    gave it a lick of paint with a sponge and wet rag. took an hr for this, i wanted it to be perfect.
    [​IMG]

    left it to dry, while i work on the acrylic.
