I've started installing the mounts for the motherboard and power supply. It just hit me. I broke the top to the case cover months ago. I was wondering why I couldn't find it. I guess i'll ether hunt down a broken xbox off of ebay or just buy a used one from EB games since the xbox is dirt cheap these days.

I need to pull out the soldiering iron and start on the front panel circuit. Going to have power and optical buttons and use the backlit LED as a hard drive indicator. I'm thinking to add a reset button but have it located on the back of the unit and also have a main power switch kinda like the PS2/3.

To fix the screw up on the back of the case I'm going to make a template out of cardboard then wrap it with foil and pull out the fiberglass. I'll play with the fiberglass on Sunday.
