    Acrylic/plexiglass led case

    I'm not quite done yet, but here are some pics of the carpc case I'm working on. This case was made out of a single piece of acrylic and does not use any glue whatsoever. Let me know what you think.

    oh, and...that's the glovebox of my 04 Acura TL, btw.

    Did you even read the title of the thread?

    I concur with the other two posters, even the one that doesn't read the title but only looks at the pretty pictures. It's very nice work.
    Not my style, but still nice.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    there are 11 LEDs that light up the case. I don't have any detailed pics, as the layout is actually pretty nasty...lol...that's why there are 7 hidden under the mobo and 4 above/behind the HDD.

    thanks, DP and riddle

    unless it is hidden while you drive, would kill your eyes in the night time.

    it's in the glovebox, so you don't even see it while driving

    Where did you get the curved plexiglass/acrylic from or did you do that yourself?

    Looks great. The glow from the glove box will look fantastic. I'm interested in learning how you bent the acrylic too. Any chance of a little more help for the bendy challenged?
