  3. Checkmate 1500 Build (Part 4)

    Well, after all the shenanigans with the DVD drive, its fitted and although the inside isnt tidy, and there are some more things I will do if I get a chance, its closed up and running, and I am loving it.

    Now yes, i did manage to slightly thread one of the plastic screws, but hey ho.

    Points to note.
