Tell everyone what project you are working on. Whats the latest modding news for you. Post a picture of your mod in progress or your thoughts and ideas on a mod. Maybe someone can throw some pointers.

BTW, I don't have any projects right now, as I am in Australia, but when I return to the states, I will be working on m mobile mac, as I call it. It will be a mac in my car with a touch screen control for video and music playback. Any ideas?

Cheers.

I don't have any mod in progress now either. I'm in NYC for the month. I do, however, have an extra iBook SE (Graphite clamshell) that is begging to have something done to it smile

I just need to figure out what to do with it... :-/

I'm currently taking apart an All-In-One G3 "Tooth" mac. I hope to figure out what kind of mod will be suitable for it based on what I find underneath.

My current project is about as exciting as watching paint dry...

A friend gave me an old Genius 10Base-T network hub which was originally in a fashoinable shade of biege. Not being one to accept these kinds of things I am painting it gloss white to match my ibook. I'm currently about half way through although it wil need a few more coats (hopefully tomorrow will be a nicer day so I can paint!).

MarMightyGood, I hope you are documenting this so that you can post a mod guide. I would be nice to see how it is done for other devices as well. Cheers...

I've heard of people putting Christmas tree lights under the translucent bit

Teaser for my current project


That one is currently on break until I find some more time for assembly, which will probably be minutes after I figure out how to mount the parts and make the structure a little more stable.

The other long term project is a wearable mac, but that one is really waiting on a computer I think is usable, then finding input devices and power for it. But that one's been a work in progress for nearly 3 years so I don't know if it will be done anytime soon.

I have been documenting my progress, unfortunately I don't think it will turn out as well as I had hoped. My final coat of paint was a bit thick and so there are some drips . Thats why I'm practising on a bit of free gear tho!

my project is to take a terry cloth to the apple logo i had to sand all of the scratches out of. after that, then i am tempted to lay new tape behind the panel on a g3 b&w to say something else, like g 3.5, or whitlock. something along those lines. also, trying to let my roomate let me borrow his canon 10d so i can take very nice, clear shots of the g3 processor upgrade, with a twist that can save a few bucks + a trip to radio shack. those are all of mine at the moment, will keep updated though.

Well,
Currently I am looking into the whole "better Powerbook G4 speakers" mod, and I am still working on iPod Woodie, slowly... Idk that either will be done any time soon...

My G5 coffee table. Two G5 cases. One is pearl yellow with kandy red flames pinstriped in silver, the other is a pearl teal with metal flake white flames, and purple pinstriping. Gonna put a piece of tempered glass on top and rock the living room hot rod style. I also need to paint a set of shells for my G4 iBook in Candy Apple red. (its an actual kandy color, not just the paint color). Once a friend gets his ibook, it will be pearl black with bamboo and voodoo stuff airbrushed onto it in a yellow/red shimmer-shift paint. All should look pretty sweet.

I have three projects that i'm working on.

Project one.
iMac Boni Blue Rev A to use a slot-load DVD drive.

Project two.
Building a case out of plexi-glass for my main PC. It's going to have a Dark red el-wire around it and also i'm thinking to use some window tint from walmart to give it some color. Also I'm building a custom water cooling system for it, making the water tank as part of the case so you can see the water on the side of the case.

Project three.
Building a 12 node beowolf cluster, each system with have AMD K6/2 at 500MHz and 128MB or ram. Sadly I don't have 12 hard drives that are the same size.
So in all the whole system will be.
6GHz
1536MBs of ram
and I think 200.6GBs of harddrive space.
I'm using a real big metal trunk to hold off of this in. So far I don;t have enough room for the CD-ROM drives but I don;t need them when i'm finished. Just need the main system to have one and the main system is going to be in it's own case.

I have two projects in mind, but I don't know which will come first.

After I get tired of the beautiful iMac G5, I'm thinking I'll tinker around to figure out how I can make it unique. So far, I haven't gotten many ideas because, lets face it, Apple has made it the epitome of perfection B) ! However, just the other day an idea hit me--the speaker grill on the bottom of the chassis might allow some room for light modding. Perhaps a few LEDs to shine through the grill? What does everybody think?

The other project centers on my 9600/200. This pre G3 model, as most of you know is very versatile. If I wanted to spend the money, I could turn it into a pretty decent G4 with 1.5 gigs of RAM :blink: ! But I don't know if I'll do that--anybody have any ideas?

I would build your 9600 into a file server. How about a g5 case? You could put in a cheap
ata-66 drive controller, a couple of fat drives, and a g3 upgrade. I would like to see more
macs put into a g5 case. If you look around enough, you should be able to do this for cheap.

I have a set of fans from my dad's old Dell that i tore into last year.  smile I plan on putting it into my tangerine ibook clamshell so i can overclock it more than normal. I just need to find a place to connect the power for it so it will run regardless of battery power or adapter but i couldn't find a pinout for the display or backlight cables to plug it in. So that project's on hold until i can find one (it's my main machine so I don't want to do anything too drastic to it, plus I'm new to modding and don't know how to do pinouts).
