True, I guess it wouldn't be too hard to make a frame for the glass. What do you use as mounts for the hardware?

Not into the glass!

That stuff is very brittle. You would almost have to have a metal plate in there for the Mobo and drive cages.

I guess you could solder that stuff right to the glass solders, and then use a screwless system for mounting the hardware.

wow that is exactly what I have in mind for a Victorian gothic theme that I wanted to do with a mountain mods case but I plan to use color glass but its nice to see someone else have luck with this as I was wondering how strong it would be and what it would really look like if I did this myself and now that I have, Im ecstatic to try this.
