    In a perfect world, I would have it on my dashboard! :lol:

    Thanks man, it's much appreciated! :)

    Well... There really is nothing but to dive in there and give it a go! :)

    Thanks a lot! :)

    LOL .. Thanks! :)

    I truly hope that I don't have to bleed the system any time soon either! :)

    What will I do to prevent condensation? Not a damn thing! :lol:

    It's been running fine for the last couple of years in the car, I actually never thought of the issue... Gonna just cross my fingers for now! :)

    You never know, I might upgrade some day - But that would mean a completely new build! ;)

    Thanks! :)

    I would agree, but since it my own creation I can't! :lol: Thank you very much! :)

    Me neither! Can't wait to get it done, and in the car! :) Thx!

    Thanks man! Love some danish support! :thumb:

    Thanks! Yeah... Modding really get's under my skin and I just can't seem to stop! :)

    So far? What do you mean? :lol: Thanks! :)

    Just a very small update. I found some sleeving that I bought for my very first mod, never thought I would see that again! But it seems to fit perfectly for the wires for the pump!

    [​IMG]

    I DID run in to a small problem though... When I mounted the front aluminum piece, I discovered that it actually shorts the board underneath... No harm done though! I was pretty sure I had that covered, but everything can't work in first try! :)

    Unfortunately there has been no mill free to use after hours this week, but hopefully tomorrow I should be able to take off 1mm of it.

    Once that is done, it's time for final pics! :clap:

    C ya soon guys! :)

    Slap some plastic laminate on the short zone and call it fixed.:D
    Some people have to learn to be lazy. That's what I'm here for.

    I was BORN lazy! I'm working the other way! :lol:

    Actually, I thought about it! But since I had to take dismount it anyways I might as well do it right. Also I dislike the idea that the pointy solderings might scratch their way through the plastic! :)

    Good idea - preferably in the same colour as the car it's going into.

    AMEN to the pump comment! :lol:

    Yeah, I was thinking about anodizing, but not this time. :)

    It's silver, so I'm close! :p

    I actually thought about spraying it the color of the car, as I have a couple of liters left from fixing rust, but since it was not in the plans from the start everything would have become a bit thicker/wider, and with the tolerences I have on this it wouldn't be possible to assemble it! :)

    Well, I can't really tell you! :)

    The pump is connected to the CPU fan socket, and this old mobo don't really have a lot of options. So the pump will start running when CPU reaches 45 degrees centigrade.

    But it will only run a little while, then the temps are down below again.

    But right now the room temp is about 23-25 degrees, and it idles at around 42 degrees, so the pump isn't running at all. :)

    OTT: http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=179763 :lol:

    It IS OTT, but who cares? :)

    BAH! :lol:

    Thanks! :)

    Ty sir! :) Pics from the photoshoot will be posted tomorrow.

    Just a little teaser:

    Sooo... I guess this is it! It's time to say farewell to a mod! :)

    It feels good and it feels bad, but with the risk of sounding full of myself, it sure as hell doesn't feel ugly! :)

    Here you go guys, some pics:

    That is just unbelievable. I would go as far as to say that 99% of people would be over the moon if that was on display as a main computer and you're going to hide it away in the boot of a car.

    Top modding, yet another superb project. I think this is another build that could be in line for a shot at the MOTY, it really is that good.
