Well this Instructable goes some way to resolving that, but the best bit of all it costs less then £5 and if you are lucky, no soldering required!
This instructable is limited by your own imagination.
Step 1: The Base Unit
Step 2: The Components
I chose to remove the insides from the casings, in my case, it was a simple matter of separating the case halves carefully with a craft knife, but some items have screwshidden under labels or rubber feet, and some have clips on the inside edes. Make sure you earth yourself on a water pipe before handling the delicate circuit board, as static KILLS delicate electronics. Put the circuit boards somewhere safe until you have finished.
Step 3: Painting
Some advice for people who have never spray painted plastic before. If you use a solvent based paint, the solvents will attack some plastics, so either use a spray paint that is designed specifically for plastic, or use what is known as etch primer, which bonds to the plastic and acts as a barrier to prevent solvent attack.
Next using very fine wet and dry abrasive paper or a sponge sanding block and water, lightly sand the surface of all of the plastic pieces until they have a matt finish, then leave to dry.
The first coat of primer or plastic paint, must be a really light and thin coat, and then allowed to dry, allow at least 15 mins between coats and the final coat must be left somewhere warm for at least 2 hrs or better still over night until the paint has really hardened, otherwise you will leave finger print impressions in the paint that CSI wuld be proud of..!!!
Step 4: Finished Items
You will see some area's on the hub and card reader that havent been painted. This is because these areas will have glue on them to stick them to the underside of the cooler. If you dont do this, the paint will lift and the parts will fall off. Just mask off the areas with sticky tape.
Step 5: Putting It All Together
When you are happy, just simply stick the hub and the card reader in place. Any excess cable can be neatly coiled up and zip tied, you can even use self adhesive cable mounts to hold the cables in place, alternatively a couple of spots of super glue on the cable should hold the coil in place on the underside of the plastic.
I chose to physically shorten the leads and use cable mounts.
I just smiled..;o)
Step 7: All Done!
Not bad for less then £5 and a couple of hours of work.
Good luck with yours, and send me some pics!
