    Yeah, You were pretty frayed last we talked. :lol: I get that you had to cut back on details. The side guns wouldn't have survived shipping anyway. I've been keeping up with the log on your site.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017!

    @Cheaps, Starting a new project build with EEL and we need to recruit your help! I'll email details soon :lol:

    @Bartacus, hahaha, it's been crazy man. My personal stuff always gets shelved. Along with the AMD Radeon Tank, I had to finish this ROGUE ONE Corsair 600C for CES here, https://mnpctech.com/rogue-one-k-2so-toy-600c-corsair-gaming-pc.html

    yes, I am crazy and old. Did you see Rogue-One yet Bartacus?

    Back at the workbench today, I created a PSU shroud for my Cooler Master Mastercase 5 build. It's made from 1/8" thick cast acrylic with embedded magnets I found on ebay, I drilled holes and glued on two legs with weld-on acrylic cement for easy on/off installation. Next step is painting the shroud gulf racing blue and draping over the orange stripe onto the shroud.

    I worked on my SLI bridge mod over the weekend. Replace green nvidia logo with transparent orange acrylic window, I'm looking for GULF pin to mount over the LED, so it's illuminated from behind. Here is some of the progress photos

    EEL Ambiense & Noobas4rus got me really interested in customizing mech keyboards after we did this Keyboard Modding Hangout,



    [​IMG]

    EEL suggested a good mech KB that allowed custom keycaps for my Mastercase Racing 5 gaming PC setup, I've given my Qisan Magicforce "Blue ICE Crystal" 108-Key Mechanical Gaming Keyboard custom keycaps that compliment my GULF RACING Porsche 917 theme.

    The Magicforce Mechanical keyboard utilizes GATERON black key switches. It's really nice deal for $69.99, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01HGDKJK4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    [​IMG]

    EEL helped me with the layout for the gulf racing theme custom key cap order, $53.75 shipped from from WASD, http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/

    [​IMG]

    Shift key was replaced with STICK SHIFT,
    Escape = PIT
    Backspace key = PADDOCK
    Windows key = GULF OIL logo
    Function key is number 5, for Mastercase 5 racing.

    I love the finish of the paint, and the color scheme is amazing. Very good job on the case overall, I especially like the sli bridge.

    Thank you for checking it out and commenting!

    I've decided on the Cougar 700M Mouse. Designed for Cougar by CRE8 Design. I love the aluminum frame and height adjustable palm rest. I'm debating on color theme, maybe Blue with Orange highlights...

    COUGAR 700M, http://cougargaming.com/us/ph/products/mice/700m/

    I'm hoping to start on the mouse paint this weekend, and for anyone else interested in clear side panel mods, and owns a Cooler Master Cosmos II, Mnpctech has 3 clear cosmos side panel left in stock here, https://mnpctech.com/mnpctech-clear-case-pc-panels/cooler-master-cosmos-ii-panel.html
