    thx m8!!

    and here comes the 2nd update for today :D

    Yesterday, we already prepared the next cuts on the sidepanel...thats were we started today...after cutting out the window...we continued with a few cuts around the window...so that we can bend the complete part a bit inside the case...that way we get a nice air intake....

    Beside that we also started the work on the reservoir for the watercooling system....for that we cut out a big top & bottom plate and we also cutted the body of the reservoir which we then bended...first we were not sure how big we will make the reservoir...so we made the top/bottom a bit bigger so that we can change the size later....

    beside that we already started to assemble the sidepanel. For that we first spot welded the outer panel so that we could add another sheet of metal to the inside of the panel which brings more stability to the cuts we want to close...

    After that we added the next metal pieces which we had to cut & bend first, they cover the gap between the bended part and the rest of the sidepanel. They´re already attached to the sidepanel and a first layer of bondo is on the panel...so that we can continue tomorrow...

    That is some awesome work. It almost looks like the case was always meant to be that size. ;)

    Good work but I don't agree with your left panel. I'm waiting for next part of your rebuild and, or rather the finish part whose is paint part (in my opinion the hardest) :thumb:

    thx m8´s!!

    yeah thats true....it´s really one of the hardest parts :D
    But i´m sure it will look pretty nice when it´s done :D the laquer is already ordered and should arrive in the next days :rock: (black/orange color combination)


    Today we nearly finished the work on the first sidepanel, and also started to assemble the 2nd panel. Beside that we also started to make a small detail for the inside ....a few plexi letters which we cut out. We will do the same from metal, glue both parts together and add a led to the plexilayer. Both will be placed upon the Midplate, so that you can see the glowing edges through the window.....

    thx, and with a bit of luck, it should not take so long :D

    in last days we were spending the most of our time in sanding the sidepanels so that we will get a perfect surface before we start the painting process....

    Beside that we also made a first LED Element which will be placed on the backside of the inner case.

    Very nice finish on that, looks like it's made by Corsair. This could be a product suggestion?

    before the package arrives we finished the preparations for the next coats...so it was just perfect timing.

    Beside that we also spent a bit of time on the reservoir. First we had to cut out a few small plexi parts which we glued onto a small piece of a Plexiglas tube. After that we drilled a hole into the reservoir so that we can attach a small rod to it on which the propeller could spin inside the reservoir.

    This is the choozen bro's I'm a big fan of :D:rock::clap:, awesome job on the minimising of the case & the res is really really cool +rep, certainly don't need to tell you guys to mod on :D:thumb:.

    PS sorry about poking my nose in on that dispute a bit ago guys, I just felt it was going somewhere not so good, I should have stayed the heck out of it like most other serious stuff, serious topics aren't my thing so I should steer clear :lol: :duh:.
