    No, I'm excluded from entering. btw: I really enjoy sponsoring MOTM ...and promise to keep switching up the prize selection with cool stuff for you guys :thumb:

    ..Wood?! ..... It's just a test so we can pre-fit the top grill frame to confirm it matches the contour of the factory version, before making real deal. The heatsink fins will be left bare aluminum while the outter frame will be painted to match the "dingy" exterior finish of the case. Otherwise it would contrast and look a bit odd...

    Words cant describe how much I want to play with that door! you should integrate a miniature speaker into it like they use in greetings cards so that when you pull it open you get a generic "air lock" sound!

    @Editor22, hehe, that would be sweet :D

    @cornelious0_0, Glad you like it, thank you :thumb:

    The grill will attach to the frame of the factory grill. The outter frame of the top grill will be painted to match the exterior. The heatsink fins will either be 1. left bare aluminum or 2. cleared coated with a light mixture of silver to mute the shine. I'm leaning toward the later, so the grill fits into the overall theme.

    I know it is the lighting on the grill frame, but I really like how it looks with the almost Graphite color to it instead of the bright billet

    Agree guys. There is a time for Billet pron, but not in this scenario. The top pane for the 600T is done! Altho I may paint the Honeycomb Black
