iMac G3 Mod - The Side Panel

Just finished making the Side Panel of iMac G3 i7 Version 2.0. Compare with the Version 1, this version has greater connectivity ability.

Apple, Core, G3, i5, i7, iMac, Intel, Mod, Modification, Modify, Project, Upgrade, siivel,, Side Panel, USB 3.0, Thunderbolt, FireWire, Mic Jet, 3.5mm Stereo, Gigabite Ethernet, 改, 改造, 改造計劃, 改造計画
(1) Mic Jet;
(2) 3.5mm Stereo Jet;
(3) Firewire Port (could be changed to USB 3.0);
(4) and (6) USB 3.0;
(5) a Thunderbolt Cord; and
(6) Gigabite Ethernet.

Mic and speaker jets are new features of Version 2.

If you still have vintage devices like iSight Camera, iPod Gen 1-3 ..., you still need a FireWire Port, or just dropped it.

As there is no "female" Thunderbolt Port available in the market (unless being disassembled from a Thunderbolt device), the Thunderbolt Jet has no choice but to be built this way.
