I used to be able to buy full size bay covers from JDR and others way back in the day. Anyone know of a source for full size drive bay covers that will fit a 5150/5160 case?

Also, anyone know where I could find an external hard drive case that is shaped like the front of the 5150/5160 case? I remember seeing them back in the 80's but nothing recent. They matched the look of the 5150/5160.

Thanks!

Tony

Did it look kind of like the computer on the right or did it only hold one hard drive?

I purchased some kits from this vendor, perfect match color/texture everything... cheap as chips to boot, 5.49 shipped w/ the 5.25 adapter brackets! Only downside is no led mounting like a st-225, but otherwise they are identical.

Thanks! I bought three. I'll see how they work. They look like 1/2 height rather than full height but I'll take what I can get.
