Some one had to ask.. Did you make that panel out of alu or is it just covered in brushed vinyl?

Brushed vinyl is so good these days that it's almost impossible to tell.

That's proper aluminium that.

I've got some brushed vinyl around still from Moderne, it's good stuff, although doesn't look nearly as good as the real thing up close.

So the date for some big stuff is drawing closer. So indeed it is now time to get some of the individual mods done, first up, the GPU!

Well I'm hoping the next 7 days to be a VERY busy week indeed.

I think it's about time this little build was finished off eh? So how about by starting with one of the major thematic elements of the interior, the glowing katana!

Big shout out to Parvum Systems for helping me get these parts cut. These particular ones could have been done fine by hand, but I added them to the cutting list for simplicity as then I know everything will be done just right. That said, there was a huge amount to do to the pieces afterwards.



It's a perfect cut, but because it was a quick pass it's rough as hell. Lots of work with files and sanding ahead






Sanding and polishing done, now to prime for paintwork


Paint on and now you can see the buffed up aluminium.


And with the blade section attached. This is opal acrylic, so the lights underneath will cause the blade to glow

Okay, I'll fess up, why on earth did I show you a lighting feature... with no lighting? Where's the damn glowing sword!?

Well simply put, I don't have any glowing lights I can use right now They'll be going into the build alright, but I don't have them external atm.

Haha, it's going to be the side panel for the PSU cover. There'll be RGB LEDs underneath the opal acrylic meaning the blade itself will glow however you wish.

Took a long time to paint and polish that piece. Went through 80/120/180/320/500/1000/2000 grits first then finished with 6000 grit polish on a sponge and then 11000 grit polish on a lambswool pad.

I got the PSU cover part, just no idea what it is. Looks like a saw that Kenny Everett would have used in one of his Reg sketches
