How did you do that? How much was it? Sorry about all the questions, but that is really awesome!

You took the black strong color type ?
Did you get the screws with it ?
Thank you !

i thought buffalowing had designed an alternative shell which has plastic lugs for fitting to the TE pcb rather than the screwholes because finding the right screws would be a nightmare. i thought the plastic lug idea was cool tbh.

the plastic posts version would be better, its a tight fit inside my console with the screws, i even scratched my cart slot a bit :(

@ dvd2vcd - where did you get the right size screws mate? the thing that put me off purchasing this shell was not being able to purchase the screws along with it and i didn't trust the plastic lug idea in case the lugs broke too easily.
 i think i read that with the screws version you need to mod the pcb a little so that the screw heads sink in a bit allowing for a less tight fit.

i got the screws off ebay

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/M2-2mm-A2-Stainless-Steel-Pozi-Countersunk-Machine-Screws-Posi-Csk-Bolts/160933135998?_trksid=p5197.m1992&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D14%26meid%3D8836035305824821926%26pid%3D100015%26prg%3D1006%26rk%3D1%26sd%3D160933135998%26

i used the 2x6mm screws, i didnt mod the pcb so the result was scratches on the cart slot on the TG16 a little bit gutted, id say you would be ok drilling the holes on the pcb slightly bigger and using 2x5mm screws

i don't think theres any need to drill the holes any bigger. i think it's a matter of making slight indentations around the screwholes to the screws inbed into the pcb with no overlaping. i would have to have the screws and pcb in my hand though to see if that idea would work. at least the screw method seems more secure and permanent than plastic lugs anyhow :)

Buffalowing used this to countersink the screw holes so as long as you can get countersunk screws, this'll help make them flush. It's a little tedious, but using a bead reamer will give you more of a controlled, precise job.

why didnt i think of that, i have some of those reamer tips for my dremel  :'(
edit
i unscrewed the case and reamed the pcb, used 2x4mm countersunk, fits flush with the pcb, now i can prevent further damage to my cart slot, wished id have known sooner :( o well its sorted now
