Began proof of concept designs in CAD for possible motherboard shroud and logos. Finalised design for side window, now speaking to sandblasting agencies regarding getting it etched.

New power supply arrived today. Semi-modular - nice, tidy little unit. Should be nice to work with.

Worked out wiring lengths. I'll need to solder together some extensions for some sensors and switches.

Removed cage mount flange - unnecessary, will only get in the way.
