I started with the HDD enclosure today. So, we all know what the HDD looks like in it's default form:
After opening it up, i pulled the top piece apart from everything else, and then I masked it up:
Almost done cutting:
Done sanding. Just have to make the edges smoother:
Now, the 360 HDD enclosure has a nice chrome side:
That fits like this:
But that little bridge in the middle is in the way, so it needed to go:
All done, no plexi yet though:
And then, finished!! All pimped out with a nice 1.5mm clear plexi window
This part of the tutorial will show you the proper way to install lights in your hdd.

For this tutorial we will be using a HDD that has been modified so we can see through it.
Step 1: Take apart the HDD
Step 2: Take out the HDD cables
Step 3: The wires we will be modifying are the yellow and black cables
Step 4: Strip a small section of the Yellow (5v) and Black (Ground) wire
Step 5: Solder all the leds to the wires you have.
Step 6: Solder a wire to the Yellow and Black wire and hot glue it to the side of the case. (resester is not required but you could place one if you want)
Step 7: Hot glue all the leds in the spots you would like them to be
Step 8: Solder all the wires and leds together. Make sure that each led is attached to a wire coming from the yellow wire, and the other part of the led coming from the black wire. then reassemble your case.
