iMac G5 mods?

Ok, this is going to sound weird... but. Has anyone seen any major iMac G5 mods anywhere on the net? I can't seem to find anything past fan mods. I've been trying really hard to find a good project to start on, and that PC in a G5 posted in this thread really has me goin' now. So. I've seen the PC in a G3 iMac mod, anyone seen anything major done to a G5?

Thanks in advance!

Oh, and if this is in the wrong part of the forum, please feel free to move it where it belongs. I just figured people in this thread might know.

Well this is a G3 but hey, maybe you could make one out of a G5?

EDIT: Ah just realized you said iMac not powermac. Sorry.

No no no! Oh, lord no! That would be a crime. Also, it would void my warranty . I'm thinking of getting the outside shell of an iMac and playing around with that a bit, to see what I can do with it. I've seen people put an LCD and PC into a G3 iMac, and I thought about doing something similar. I've just got a lot of worries, however, (primarily heat and clearance), so I wanted to see if anyone else had tried anything similar.

It's weird, you don't really appreciate how ingenious Apple's designs are until you try to emulate them.
