    I'm still wrestling with the wire mesh shell, but I have made small progress here and there.

    I swiped an ITX MoBo out of something else I had around and used it to test fit my chassis so far to make sure I had proper clearance for the MoBo, PSU, etc. and to mark out a suitable mounting position for the GPU slots. I had originally planned to not have a a disc drive because the front would be a solid panel and there really wasn't much room left for it anyway. It was kind of a shame since the girl I'm making this for has a lot of older games on CD that she still really enjoys and I know she'd love to have a way to load those games easily. Once I had them test fitted, though, I realized there was exactly (and I mean down to a fraction of a millimeter) enough room above the PSU for the body of a laptop DVD drive. So, I took a cutting wheel on my drill and sliced right below the top rail and right above the PSU. During the cutting the rail that fits along the top of the PSU came right off, and the strip of metal I was removing broke in half because there was a rectangular shaped opening that left no appreciable material at it's center. Looking at it I realized that instead of trying to delicately slice the strip out on both sides I simply bent the two halves inward and made them into a sort of frame for the drive to fir snugly in-between. The result of all this is that my design now has a rear facing DVD drive at the very top of the back panel.

    Now on to the next step of cutting out the dual slots (and most likely adding an internal support for the GPU) and then reinforcing the unfinished side of the frame.
