    You're being treated to "behind the scenes" photos of stages that go beyond Episode #1 of the Mod Men Show.

    The milled acrylic housing for the Blue-ray drive after being painted Silver Metal Flake.

    Years ago I had two lamps with acrylic bases. I threw them out, thinking they were out of fashion. I guess I made the wrong decision!

    *Mod Men post-guy sneaks in the door*

    Man - you guys are giving EVERYTHING away! :jawdrop:

    There'll be nothing left for the show at this rate! :worried:

    Actually... there's honestly more than the show has room for! It sucks having to leave some of it out of the episodes...

    propelled with magical flatulence...:eyebrow:

    @Waynio - I toned the points down significantly 'cause I knew I might kill someone. (OK... The original points jutted out too far to use 12x24"/12x12" stock.)

    While I'm here, I need to start contributing.

    -The reservoir started out as a res/pump top combo, but the finalized position on the case meant the hoses had to run out the bottom. That would have been a little bulky with the DDC on there too. This is the work file for the res. This mess of imported bits caused problems later on...
    [​IMG]
    -I ended up with this design, although the color changed obviously. This bolts onto the back of the main tower on a flattened spot.

    -The other bit I'm doing is the waterblock/motherboard cover. Randy did the copper base of the block, and there should be porn of that coming later.:D
    I pushed early on for an ITX board with a full-size video card, just because it would look obnoxious. I thought a very large waterblock dominating most of the motherboard would look neat.
