    will have a remedy for that soon. next year we will have new rooms and more space. then we will also stream on saturdays. live streams on wirk days before work is over times isnt of course the best time. but for me thats part of my job so it happens daytime. I mean I am building anyway so why not film it.

    Google Translate hat mir geholfen, aber nur mit einem Wort
    (That ^^ was all GT)

    Mein deutsch war in der schule gelernt... and from reading phrase books - as a 5yo - my parents used while they lived in (West) Germany.

    Looking good so far!

    Nothing quite like that early PC aesthetic :naughty:.
    Great idea to keep the font of the CRT too. It'll look so much better than a flat screen.

    I gotta know what the red plexi number is and where you got it.. :worried: I may be working on a red build that needs frosted red, and I've been burned buying the stuff based on example pics.
    The back looks hot, I guess it's hard to spice up an old rig that hast to be 'stock'.

    Thanks guys, I am rteally happy too how its turning out. Its actually quite emotional for me. I have been casemodding quite some time now and I keep thinking, I am 52 in december and a larger part of my life is the past 40 years. How many people have stared into this screen. How many people have been working in front of this machine, that it brought joy and aggravation, sorrow and enthusiasm and who knows what else. If this machine could talk, it woul have a 40 year lifespann to talk about. This is history and an honour to be able to modify and give a new life.
    And to think now, that this is officially the fastest Commodore CBM 2032 ever to exist in the last 40 years. And I built it. Makes me proud.
    Now that its my property, it will never just land as apile of junk on ebay again. I goes into my collection of over 50 selfmade casemods and will tour the world with me. Yes this is indeed, in a different way than my self made ones like Spartacus or Ragnars Revenge, a very emotional build.
    More of the last minute touches tonight. then after that the final pics. Oh no on second thought, It needs an old mouse too. :)
