More hole whacking! And well done.

I glad you put both ends on the Satellite of Love. Kind of a disturbing shape if you glance at quickly.

Lol, that's what I thought at first too! I blame it all on E.E.L. for making me think that way...

I must admit I thought of that when I designed it and I was going to say something in the update post too, but figured I'd leave it out in deference to being a consummate professional.

And shame on you for thinking that! You two are some of the most foul-minded people I've ever met! .....

Nov. 6th Update...again?

Thanks, Mankz!

--------------------------------

Update time!


I don't have a whole lot of pics, but I did get a lot done. Let's be a little more specific, shall we?

After finishing up the cutting/drilling work on the top panel, I needed to blast and coat it as well as the custom front backing panel. Both were first shot with the 'dormant orange' that I used on the case feet, and the color looked good. But I wanted it to really jump out as well as look a little 'cosmic', as much as orange could be cosmic anyways. So I top-coated with gloss clear that has medium flakes in it called 'midnite clear'. Looks awesome to me. Here's some pics of the results!















I'm happy. I'm sure my brother will be too.

The movie always bugged me. They spent looong periods of time not saying anything.

Killer orange. You didn't have to add extra sparkle to it, but you did. You spoil the crap out of your little brother, don't you.

Thanks, man. Yes you have been living under a rock if you've never heard of MST, lol. It's everyone's favorite show they've never heard of.

Yeah, the movie's not the best by any stretch. They have a larger budget and shot it on actual film so it's slicker looking, but it felt like one of the normal 'not-as-good' episodes to me. The regular show is my preference, but I'd still watch the flick too. Some great lines....

Thanks! Yes, my brother's definitely going to be like, "huh!?" LOL.

Yo EEL! This thing is so much fun to see come together. The powder coating job appears to be top notch and the color scheme is easy on the eyes. Really well done as always.

Nov. 18th Quick Update

Another petite update here. I've been 'in season' at work as we do every year around the holidays like this, so my time has been lacking lately. I did have some time to work on a small update.

Let's get to it.

I had a little time to work on the handles a bit and finish them up. They were coated in flat black as well as the 'midnite clear' on top of it to give it pop. They came out great, I thought.





I went ahead and installed them on the top panel to get them out of the way and to preview how it all looks...





I also shot a stock wire grill with black and the clear as well. I'm probably going to put it in the bottom side of the top exhaust fan as a bit of 'insurance' for wiring, etc. Nothing sucks worse than getting your wires wrapped up in a fan! Actually, a finger or perhaps a penis would suck worse. Nevermind.



And finally I coated a couple hex-mesh fan inserts. MNPCTech sells these as well. Cheap and works perfect.



When I have some more time, I have some other cool stuff to reveal...

It's looking FAB-U-louuuuus! <-extra hiss on the 'S'.

I've used some sparkle nail polish to glue LEDs in place. I found it during a rent house cleanup... Honest!

You are a good brother to build him this chick-magnet. Your brother will be dating a girl with neon pink hair soon.

Hahahah. Thanks, bro. Well, the only chick-magnet is the little ruby-red dude with a clear head...

My brother already dates a chick with neon pink hair! She told him he can think of it as cotton-candy!

No, wait--- that came out wrong.
