Umm... what?

You want to a) destroy a Bondi Blue iMac's future collectible status and b) stick a MASSIVE iMac into the case of a much smaller model?

Please reconsider. It may seem cool, but you won't be getting the analog/power boards into that case, and I personally don't think people should do anything to working landmarks in Mac history.

even I would not do that...

I do some left-field things, but why would you put a older machine into a newer case? I can see doing it the other way around - who would expect something like an G4 Cube running out of a SE case, but the SE in the Cube case does not really click. While they are both iMacs, and you *may* be able to do this, can you share some of the synaptic occurrences that gave birth to this idea?

well...

Yes, the indigo and all other slotloaders are considerably smaller and have a generally different shape to the original.

Do youself a favour... if you like the Indigos, sell the Bondi(they're going for about the same price now that they're all just 'that old G3 stuff') and buy a real one. The simplicity of an Indigo is more than just skin-deep; don't forget the convection cooling and uncluttered visible innards. You'll end up with a contraption sounding like a jet engine if you adequately cool a Bondi somehow chopped up and shoehorned into an SL's case- but you really won't be able to do it at all.
