    Some photos from today's work.I've made a plate for my new front grill :)

    [​IMG]

    Ready to be cut

    [​IMG]

    Almost there :)

    [​IMG]

    And the plate finished :)

    And mounted on the grill :)

    I'm planning to spray the grill in silver.The space behind the letter will remain white for better contrast.That's all for today :)

    And my new dust filter painted and on place.Hope, that it will work :D

    So the front of the case is complete, I just need to add some more nuts and bolts ,hopefully they will arrive soon.

    Very busy at work,we doing mostly days, so not much time for modding . The good news is,that I have the fittings(they cost me a fortune) and almost half of the tubing is done already:)

    Hi guys,

    I've made some progress these days :) The side panel is almost done,I just need to cut the acrylic

    [​IMG]

    Lots of glue to clean after I removed the isolation from the panel

    [​IMG]

    So this is the current status of the case

    [​IMG]

    The tubing is almost done,but the problem is that I'm still missing few fittings and they are out of stock.The shop emailed me,that they expecting delivery end of this week :( So fingers crossed for that!
