    I got annoyed with just having my hard drive sitting next to my Wii all out of place, so I decided to make a little holder for it out of duck tape. It's attached to the side of my Wii and holds the hard drive in place. I figured I might as well share the results with you guys.

    This is not meant to look professional at all, so don't flame me for ugliness because I know it's ugly [​IMG]. It does what it's supposed to do, and surprisingly does it well. Anyways, here it is:

    Fail.

    Should HAVE used punctuation and correct words.

    I actually think the gray works pretty well, considering the modified casing you have.

    this post gave me a great idea for my case, instead of buying a fancy just use duct tape to pimp it out.

    Kind of like this

    The hard drive barely heats up at all and Wii's are known for not heating up, so I'm not worried.

    http://www.decalgirl.com. They sell great skins and have some great designs. They're especially known for their Wii and DS skins. I really like them. The quality of their skins is way better than skinit.
