    Today Dodgey Phil (my big brother for those who don't know) and myself set out to do some case modding, first of many projects I hope. We went for a drive down to Dick Smiths in the afternoon after my cold improved and got a whole bunch of different things including; Blue LEDS, Soldering Iron, Multimeter, shrink wrap, various cables, cable tires and all that kind of good stuff for case modding, as well as a slab of Crown Larger of course, Phil needed a nerve settler for the soldering iron and well as Wiggo would agree, I needed a beer!

    In part 1 of our very very informal case modding eposide here in the forums we changed our regular LEDs at the front of the case from Red and Green to very bright BLUE, they look very cool indeed. We also did some tidying of the cables within the case and generally cleaned both our cases up to brand new condition, oh yeah and Phil fixed a fan.

    As you may tell I've had quite a few beers already and more await tonight. I took a short video of our first project and have uploaded it here for everyone to have a look:

    Yeah, well Mr Tweak thinks he knows alot. He can open beers really well, which comes in handy in sweltering heat here in Melbourne.

    Really, there is nothing that cant be achieved in case modding with a big drill and a sledge hammer. Hint: Cold Beer = Imagination and bigger the drill the better

    Next up will be replacing the standard IDE and floppy cables with cool clear silver rounded cables from PC Case Gear (www.pccasegear.com)
