That's some nice work! 

I started a mod with a similar case, but I took a dremel to the Apple logos on the plastic. I added some mesh for the logos, but then the board died somehow during storage, so I stopped the project.  Long story short, stopped modding and pretty much using the internet for like 8 months for that matter and got married. 

I blame the board. Don't ever stop modding...ever!

Anyway you should think about adding some mesh to those holes.  It would look great!

Well the colours I was looking at was a bit MacMod-ish in colour:

Though i would suggest checking out the COLOURlovers web site to see if any combinations strike your fancy.

Hmmm...  Color Combinations is a faster load and a lot "neater" in appearance.  I'll have to bookmark that one.

Is that speaker magnetically shielded?  If not, it will wipe your HDs.  Looks like you have a good start on this one.

Re: My youngest project : The Remix G4 - 09/19/07 09:34 AM

yeah..i also discovered that..

now if i put the HDs in the front where the Front speaker is..?
or do i can shield the speaker?

Are there the HD's in a good place?

Re: My youngest project : The Remix G4 - 09/20/07 01:13 PM

Nice drawings...hand done or CAD?  Also, many people may prefer the use of Native-American instead of indian.  Just a thought.

Re: My youngest project : The Remix G4 - 09/20/07 01:16 PM

its done with Illustrator...

Re: My youngest project : The Remix G4 - 09/20/07 01:48 PM

No, he means you shouldn't refer to it as an indian. You should simply call it a native american instead. Its just a matter of political correctness, which can be forgiven where translation is involved.
Its funny how political correctness varies across the Atlantic. Over here the terms black and white are still perfectly acceptable, whereas in the US you have to say african-american or caucasian respectively.
Feel free to paint as many native american as you like, any colour you like. No-one will take  offense as long as you call them native americans!

Re: My youngest project : The Remix G4 - 09/20/07 01:50 PM

ok...thanks...

So I will put a native-american sticker on the side... smile

You could go with a burgundy color like you have for the main case, and then gold (yellow) handles.  Yeah Redskins!

also, @ War - I think its ok to use 'black' and 'white' in America again.

Re: My youngest project : The Remix G4 - 09/21/07 02:00 PM

soundmann18 is right, not to dilute the thread, black and white is basically acceptable.  Love where the mod is going.  Keep us posted.

Posted by: WOOKIE1212

Re: My youngest project : The Remix G4 - 10/18/07 02:02 PM

then i gonna put an acryl plate over it and i ll use a heatgun and then its getting some shape...

but unfortunately my G4 died...CPU and PowerSupply are broken...:(
