Disclaimer: I am not a professional when it comes to working with Plexiglas. There might be better ways of doing the things that I did that I don't know about. This guide is only to show the way that I built my case. Your mileage may vary.
Welcome to part two of the merliniplexi 2.0 build guide. It's been a while since I published the first part, so you might want to head over here for a refresher. I'll grab a sandwich while you read.
Now that everyone is caught up, when I left off I had just completed the basic construction, installed standoffs, and had some dud hardware in place. In this article, we will cover: drive mounting, cutting fan holes, and finish work.
Now that we are reasonably sure of the layout and that everything fits (now that we have abandoned watercooling), we can move on to mounting the hard drive and optical drive.
By inserting the face of the drive in the hole already precut, and supporting the weight of the drive with a roll of tape, we can position the drive where we want it.
