    This part of the tut is how to cut the window.



    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:

    2b.jpg



    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.


    How to install lights in Xbox 360 HDD





    Items needed:

    LED's of your choice (leds)
    Wire
    Hot glue gun
    A Soldering Iron
    Solder
    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.
