    At the end of the day it's your hardware. Do I approve? The concept/idea yes, the execution not really IMHO!
    But it you like it and are happy with the results, that's all that really matters. It's at least not a case gathering dust.

    Do you have further plans for this?

    No one should imitate something like that, at some point you'll regret it.


    You get 1000 PC Cases but such a Beautiful Amiga Case you'll never get back to its original state or buy New Case like PC Case.


    Sorry, but it's my opinion

    There are many other ways to build a PC motherboard in an Amiga case,
    I have long been considering to plant a PC mainboard in my A2000 Case, even ATX backplane already prepared, but I can not Saw my Amiga babies.

    If possible find a broken Case and thus can do everything.
    Rust is not a gross damage !

    The A2000 is also becoming rarer

    Buddhists say that attachment creates suffering. I tend to agree with that more and more as I grow older. A2000 is not some super rare diamond that should be preserved at all costs. I think what he did is a cool project, he put the case to good use and also got to be creative. What's wrong with that?

    Sorry, but it's my opinion and you are welcome to have it

    I have long been considering to plant a PC mainboard in my A2000 Case, even ATX backplane already prepared, but I can not Saw my Amiga babies. and that is your choice, i like doing things that aren't the norm, and in my opinion an A2000 isn't fast enough.

    If possible find a broken Case and thus can do everything. it is possible, but i had this case.
    Rust is not a gross damage ! i don't recall saying that rust is damage

    The A2000 is also becoming rarer
