Very professional looking job, Justin!

I went the easier route, and have a 128 with holes already cut, so I didnt
feel so bad about cutting more holes..

Also, knowing I'd have a slew of hardware hanging off the cartridge port, I
changed the power supply completely:

What youre seeing is my c128dcr with a small ATX power supply.  The poweron
wire is led to a switch under the front, and one of the 5v drive power leads
goes directly to the cartridge port to ensure it gets plenty of current.  As
an added bonus, I gain a fan to pull hot air out of the back of the unit.

Sadly, I havent done anything about the 9vac 60hz input.  Haven't really
needed it.

Some day..


PS: in the picture, it looks very professional.  While I'm satisfied with
the way the opening fits the power supply, the edges are somewhat rough and
uneven.  I could have done better.
