    I think, compared to the US plexi is quite cheap here. The thing is, I would have to get an extremely thick piece for the bottom as the case feet will be attached to it and the whole system will be resting on it....hence the wood :)

    Phase change, I am not even totally sure I know what it is for :D thats why I cant wait to see your mod get finished :D

    Awesome job on the paint!

    I really like this mod, everything from the Sketchup shots to the welded corners is über clean.

    Keep up the great job:thumb:

    hey dean, the only reason people are not voting for you in MY opinions is that this project has just started. Just be patient my friend, next month sounds promising :D

    Next month the comp is over Teyber. But, as I said previously, just to be nominated was a HUGE honor! Thank you Bit-Tech! My views for this log has scy-rocketed since the comp started!

    Just trying my luck in the last post :)

    Yeah Teyber, Dae Ja Voo also lives in SA and he's got the plexi place so I asked him to send me some.

    I like the look of the black brushe steel. Will see when I install it. If it looks out of place, I'll make a plexi cover for it.

    Yeah, You got screwed! All the forum heavyweights with mostly finished rigs vs. the dude who just got his basic frame done. I can't bring myself to vote for anyone. The last time I tried to vote for something, They put a monkey in the white house...:sigh:

    Yeah, I only started my case about a week before the comp started. Wish they'd chosen me for the August / September comp instead :sigh:

    But, a BIG congrats to "Impossible" Modding by rigormortem for taking the win by quite a landslide! :clap: :clap: :clap:

    And Thank you! to Bit-Tech for the nomination in this awesome competition!
