Finally after nearly a year of working, i have finished my masterpiece; I have racked up more geek points by creating a backpack from an old macintosh SE computer c. 1988. I know everyone is saying either A.) why did you destroy a perfectly good macintosh? Or B.) Why didn't you spend that time making floppy disk plate mail like you promised? Well to be truthful/ in my defense, The mac was dead and I tried all I could to find the necessary system software, and I didn't want plate mail armor, however geeky, as much as I wanted this. Let's move on to the actual instructions:
Step 1: Acquire
I've had this Mac for almost three years, it became a decorative object after one. Good lord how I loved the noises it made, the initial ping as it started up, the whirring of the hard drive, the enevitable struggling and breakdown because it didn't have a fan. I was reared on this computer (not this exact one mind you) and will always revere them.
Step 2: Disable Firewall
Unless you are fortunate enough to own the apropriate sized star drive you will not be able to unscrew these screws, however there is an alternative: Hex keys (or maybe they will be found under wrenches, Allen.) The first two screws (not shown) will be easy enough to find and render harmless; however, these two, crammed way in the back, are situated in such a way as to make you unable to properly align and turn the wrench. You need either an extremely long wrench or to just make your own tool.
Step 3: Fire Macguyver
Take some long object that is also thin and drill a hole in it (I used an extender for a socket wrench because it pretty much already has a hole in it) then insert the short end of the hex key in the hole and secure with glue, rubber bands and/or hair from an orange cat caught on the full moon.
