Got my buttons and bezel from Craig today. I'm glad I didn't make my own. These are beautiful and are worth the money. I spent a few hours filing the pewter bezel tonight.

Also ordered a real power supply today and a DC/DC converter (12v to 5 v) for the motors. Tech support at the power supply company said that multi voltage power supplies must start with a certain load on them or you could have problems with the voltage all over the place. That was probably the problem with my PC Power supplies. They were multiple voltage power supplies. I guess it has something to do with there's not much of a regulator on a multi voltage power supply. If you just get a plain old 12v power supply then it's not a problem. Enough on power supplies.
