    Well you can't, it's for aluminium only ;) That's why he wrote "anodized-look plastic cable ties" ;)

    The cable ties are such a perfect addition, you do so very well in finding exactly what you need to fit a theme, awesome :clap:.

    I'm blown away by this one so far Bill! I've been silently watching and smiling in impressed glee as you relentlessly unleash lots of cobalt blue and blue anodized goodies on us! :D Keep it up dude, this one's going to be awesome :thumb:

    Highlights for me so far:

    All the milling. Billet alu turns me ON and your machining is as always, impeccable.
    Cobalt/ anodized blue parts and paint - One of my favourite colours!
    Seeing someone pay the NZXT some attention - I had one ;)
    Modding the H50 - first ever? Maybe :thumb:
    Generally, the attention to detail gets me on your mods every time. I'm all about the details, and so is awesome modding. Things like colour coded screws, rivets, power supply connectors etc make all the difference to a project, especially a heavily themed one. I love it!

    [edit]

    I'm not sure if you mentioned it already, but where was your source for the coloured cable ties? By the way, I still have rivets coated on a regular basis. Either painted or anodized. Although for the latter, I'm afraid they have to go all the way across the pond which works out to be quite expensive unless you're buying large bulk. Still, if you ever need any more coated rivets I'd be glad to get you their number :)

    Post #4080 by the way :thumb:

    You gotta reproduce the smudge/shadow in the paint with an airbrush now. The added contrast really works.:D

    @Kovoet, will do! Thanks for checking out the project

    @grritsshawn, I love it in Billet, reminds me of an oil filter & valve cover cap on a Hot Rod.

    @Unicorn, Yes, please PM me their contact info. Thanks for watching and leaving the great post! It pushes me to not compromise, altho I'm going to have to stop at some point and ship it to MSI. Here is my post with info about Cable Ties. They were the item that was out of stock.

    @cheaps, Yeah, it's got me thinkin cheaps... I still had to re-do the background, it got scratched up while I sanded and polished the raised portion

    @Remmes, coincidentally I just watched the episode of TopGear when Jeremy raced a GT-R against the Super train in Japan. Much more entertaining than 2Fast2F

    Refinished the background on the panels.

    The build is coming along very nicely Bill. I love what you have done to the H50, an awesome mod in itself.
