    G4PC: Make A PC Out Of A G4 Case
    Author: Drew Lanclos
    Date Posted: August 8th, 2001

    The I/O Shield

    The G4 shield didn't quite turn out the way I had hoped at first. After evaluating several different tracks to take, I decided that the best method would probably be to cut out the I/O ports from the G4 shield. This would leave some gaps and holes in places, but these could be covered up with some new vinyl sheets that would mask this out, for the most part. Still, it seemed kinda ugly.

    After tapping, cutting, and slicing, the results weren't especially pretty.

    I would've cleaned this up a bit with a rotary file, but I had to cut this part of the project short, due to preparations for would-be Hurricane Barry. I decided to put this step aside and possibly pursue it in the future.
