    Damn.....how did you scratch it?

    You know a few days ago I thought I had a scratch it mine. But it turns out it was just the reflection of the sun on the dust pattern that formed on the inside.

    The scratch is about an inch long..:snip:
    I brought my tower to work to give it a blow job (air compressor).
    I had the side panel off, but the fan was still connected.
    I leaned the side panel against the back of the tower while I was blowing the dust out from inside when I moved the tower to get at the front panel...when...the side panel tipped over onto the steel end of a Quick-Grip bar clamp which was clamped to a manual hand press - I WATCHED IN HORROR !!! :cry:
    Now, my pretty case window has been violated.
    On the plus side however, I did get a lot of dust out...
    P.S. I found out that my tower weighs 41 Lbs.
    Did I also mention that I haven't slept in a few days...The wife and I are in the process of buying a house...Now all we have to do is sell our condo.

    Or..... an acrylic polishing kit. I had one for my reef tank and it worked wonders on CDs and other plastics also. It was basically a medium grit solution and a fine grit solution, which I used with a buffing wheel. It made my tank and CDs look brand new. :) I did a quick google and came up with this --
