    Thanks for the comments everybody!

    White cold cathode light, 12" tube inside the chassis, later the acrylic housing was coated with Silver paint to dim the brightness

    Light diffusal is what it's called, and the sort of light is called 'soft light' :)

    You can buy acrylic that does it, without painting... opal white or possibly pearl white depending on who you buy from.

    You mean "Puddi" brand cat food?

    I need a single HD cage. This old Enermax HD cage can be cannibalized down to it's bare frame. I've also needed an excuse to implement an old distributor cap from my odds/ends drawer. The plug connections allow more flexible hose madness inside the PC, just to make people wonder what purpose they served Christopher..

    Thanks for the comments guys! The weathered and rust effects are hand painted and airbrushed by Brad on the main body, bezel, top panel and backplate of the Cooler Master 840 case.
