Top view in black. A piece of plastic lays on top of the Cube itself, I painted that black and left a circular spot for the led to shine through, its not quite aligned in the shot but you get the point.





A white semi-translucent plastic fitted behind the cutout and white electrical tape holds it in place. I will put some white lighting behind the logo to give it that glowing effect on the laptop lines.





Test fitting, cube goes back into the acrylic and it's exactly what I wanted, but lighting will have to wait for now. Don't worry, the cutout lines up with the acrylic depression when the Cube is screwed in. Another test shot, the middle circle is semi-translucent and will be for the activity/sleep LED.

The Mac mini just waiting to be opened.









The beautiful Mac mini...now its time to prep it to fit it inside the Cube.

Things to do:
1. Open the mMac mini up.
2. Remove unnecessary parts for fitting.
3. Remove the 2.5" SATA hdd and put in 3.5" 500 GB SATA.
4. Remove the DVD drive to be fitted inside the Cube.
5. Power splitter for a touch sensitive button. The Mac mini with its top off. I used a pizza cutter which was easier than using a putty knife.

The fan and hard drive was removed to make way for the motherboard.

The bottom that the Mac mini's motherboard sits on... being prepped for clip removal so it will fit into the Cube nicely.
