Now that's some serious work :D
I thought I was good using filler on a melted space bar but that's next level :D

I must say, good work on the case.
On my 520STm i also keep the case original on the outside.
I just removed a bit of plastic inside the case to make room for IDE Cables,
but that is not visible from the outside.

On the other hand, i think personally i would not have done all the work and then put a gotek in it.
Since my 520 does not have a floppy built in, i added two external drives to it.

It's a good point. Certainly if the machine had come with a floppy drive in it when I bought it, I'd have done the gotek as an external drive. Unfortunately it had been robbed for parts by someone, so I figured gotek instead of floppy drive as it's easy to come by 🙂
