    Thanks again in advance.

    Hard drive is now supposed to be here tomorrow. Wish me luck. Any how to's for the corner repair would it be worth sending it off to one of you experts?

    about repairing that cracked case near the power connector ...
    one can use "JB weld" or a good quality epoxy to ensure integrity against moisture and dust intrusion , but it will do little good as far as physical strength goes .
    it should be possible to drift the two sections back into alignment and then carefully drill small holes on both sides of the crack and case bottom to accommodate a small "fish plate" with matching holes that bridges the top/inside of the crack .
    the holes in the fish plate can be tapped to match the screws or small matching nuts can be used .

    a small hole should be drilled at the end of the crack to prevent "running" .

    there is an "aluminum solder" available .
    (not to be confused with that model airplane cement that has aluminum powder in it ... worthless crapola)
    however , this requires the area to be soldered to be scrupulously clean and the application of heat that will destroy the paint ...
    not to mention the disassembly required .

    more pictures of the bottom side of the crack would be helpful .

    Tried to take pics of it, looks like it's on the crease and possibly not intrusive as it looks. Some of the screws didn't like the idea i was removing them. This is gonna be a fun tear down. Gotta call and find out about my hard drive as it is still scheduled for delivery on 13 of this month and hasn't left the state it originated in.

    Had HQ video but only contains me trying to hold the camera still,focus and peel back the weather stripping to take the 1st pic.

    The silver/white line in 1st pic is the 1 tear and the 2nd one shows like a black foam/mesh material not similar to the one around the ports.

    Yeah when I was *UPS with a gun* Banks and stores had high demand to get change and remove excess cash asap. That was good overtime and paycheck every Friday. Christmas route was guaranteed 6 hours overtime plus time and a half.


    Either way, hard drive should be here very soon granted someone already showed up with a box toying with my emotions! LOL!
