Finally picked up a FreHD for my Model III and it's definitely a slick piece of hardware.
Right off it needed a case and the generic Chinese wall-wart needed to go.
Decided I wanted something that would look period correct for a TRS-80.
Set the Wayback machine to 1973 and picked up this nice case from Radio Shack.
Used a cutting wheel on a Dremel for the SD slot and then finished with a file.
The Read/Write/Power LED holes were done with a Whitney Punch and the holes covered from behind with a white translucent tape for a finished look. Also put a divider between the board LEDs so there's no light bleed between them.
Added a nice Mean Well power supply and switched the line voltage so the power supply is dead when turned off...also used a grounded line cord.
Really happy with how everything fit up just right.
The face is pretty much a dead on match for the battleship grey and the black sides match the disk drives and keyboard.
Originally I put in a blue LED for the power indicator but realized blue LEDs didn't exist until around 1990, so I put in a red one.
And yes...you need a key to fire it up!
