    While I do realise that you do this for a living, Bill, it always amazes me that you take your time sanding and buffing imperfections like the peeling caused by the clear coat. It must take forever to sand down and buff?

    @AlderonnX, AMD is giving it away! more details here

    @Angel OD, got it covered today, but on smaller scale :D

    @Kyle, Thank you dude! :thumb:

    @jeckulz, Thank you for tuning in! :D

    @Waynio, should fit nicely with overall color scheme :hip:

    @modscases, Thank you, good to see you!

    @KidMod, Thank you for the post! ...almost ready for system :rock:

    @KrunchR, welcome back dude! :hip:

    @Nutman, you must! :thumb:

    @stonedsurd, good to heat from you man.. :cooldude:

    pcb for the CPU tachometer, "Tachduino" by Twizted arrives safely...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Modified the factory bezel of the Tachometer by opening the center, so I can mount the new circuit board (pcb) in the Tach body with the 4 screw holes... The factory pcb had screws in the center...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next step is Hot Roddin the Tachometer gauge face with fire, with Brad Galvin behind the IWATA airbrush....

    That's sweet, dude!
    The title gave me another funky idea: A HD roto-sequence indicator with each LED having it's own layer of etched plexi. The layers could have an animation sequence of fire etched on them.

    I'll shut up now.:D

    I think, for his birthday, we should get Cheaps a genie. But one of the stupid genies who can't count...It'll result in either modding ecstasy, or an evil monkey apocalypse. Risk worth taking, IMHO.

    @Foregasm - Yes, please send me a genie. I will repopulate the Earth with pretty girls who like geeks. -Bwa hahahahaha! My flying monkeys shall deliver hardware to the good children on my birthday.
    ... Well, it will be apocalyptic, but a good kind of apocalyptic. I figure the world could use something to shoot that isn't other people, and the destruction will be for aesthetic purposes only.

    -Sorry, Bill. I'll shut up again.:lol:

    @Balder, Thanks for watching and posting! and I wish it was open to everyone as well..

    @maestro0428, Twizted made the pcb, and Brad is my life long custom paint Mentor. :lol:

    @Vetalar, will do, but have this one from testing session by Twizted :thumb:



    [​IMG]

    The sponsors graphics are created with a vinyl overlay, which is made with vinyl film plotter, the overlay is placed over the panel, so the open portion overlay is painted with Black enamel paint.

    [​IMG]

    The Showdown graphic was done the same way, but in 3 different steps for Black, White and Yellow paint.

    [​IMG]

    Graphics are finished... next step is using a small detail paint brush to add dirt specs around the graphics, and paint scuffs to the side panel.

    [​IMG]

    Small detail paint brush with Black enamel paint...

    [​IMG]

    The specs flow toward rear edge of the case to stimulate motion..

    [​IMG]

    AMD logo was painted in top center of the bezel door to emulate a car emblem.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    next step is clear coating the graphic, which requires clearing the entire panel.

    [​IMG]

    Using large paint brush to create scuffed paint effect.. "Rubbin's Racin" :cool:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Using ripped Red Scotchbrite pad and Silver aluminum paint to create paint chips from gravel..

    [​IMG]

    Next step is clear coating over the panels and graphics, paint effects on the front intake grill, install window, K&N filter covers, sleeve and wire up all of the cooling fans, wire mini projector lights, install system...
