    hrmm - not to rain on your parade, but most people here are capable of building these things on their own.

    Especially considering this is your first post and you're posting to make some money. Just saying it doesn't come across all that great.

    add another bad feeling when you don't even post pictures.

    These had better be some bad *** cases.

      I heard the plexi has sparkles injected in it. So it shines pretty.

            I am sorry I didnt mean to seem like I was just trying to make money. I have been reading this forum for over a year and a half, just never really had anything worth adding to the discussions. When I saw how interested people were in the custom fabed metal case, I thought people might be as interested in a plexi case. I am at work and figured if noone was interested I wouldnt bother posting the pics, but I will put them up when I get home.

              I made a plexi glass case last year... Turned out ok for my first project. Its under my back seat in the suburban now. If i can figure out how to post pictures from my HDD i will post them. Ha ha

                Pics and dimensions

                7.5" x 8.5" x 4"
                Could be smaller based on what components you want to fit inside. Take 2 screws out and the top slides off.

                      That is a nice looking case! I have no need for one since I bought an Aopen Pandora. Just thought I'd complement you on a job well done.

                      As for most people here being able to build one... probably. But I have no plexi materials or cutting stuff. If I was in the market for one and the price was right, I'd buy one probably...
