Well, here we go!
But in order to start the project, I want to use my table for better space and “parts control”.
However, as you can see, the table is covered with stuff, which is my usual habit.

I got it cleaned off (threw most things in a box).
Here’s what was UNDER the table. Sigh. Cleaning ’til you die!! Yay!
As all good projects go, they breed 15 million other projects that seem to need to be done before the original project can be done.
However, despite all this mess calling to me to fall upon the floor, beat my hands upon the rug and wail, I will just move the table to middle and proceed ahead. Otherwise, you’re not getting your Xbox until the end of the year.
But first, I also needed the table for another project. I have to figure out how to sew Marty’s lungis (his Indian style wrap skirts you see him wearing for Movie Night). He got some fun fabric for three new ones and I haven’t used my sewing machine in years. YEARS.
Ok, folks, here we go! First a little explanation:
Then we proceed on to the removal of the main cover, which was a little difficult to get the clips to move, but off it came!
Okay, it’s a bit dusty up in here!
A little bit of a quick clean up! I don’t want more dust getting inside when I crack this baby open.
And now, I explain what’s going to happen next.
Taking the inside cover off.
An inside examination of the disgusting insides. Okay, never mind about that “more dust getting inside” thing, because, uh, the inside of your box is breeding dust bunnies.
Taking the drive out.
Another examination of the gross insides… is this box getting enough air flow?
Now, I cleaned out the Xbox and the motherboard, here it is all nice and clean.
Okay, now opening up the disc drive.
Now, gonna put this back together, timelapse style.
