    Thanks :)

    greensabbath: ye the paint came out better than i expected, i originally planned to go with satin black but thats the only black we had in stock, and it came out really good so I'll stick with it :D

    Teyber: I used paint gun. Airbrushing it would take much longer :)

    I took some pics fitting the fans accent plates, enjoy :)

    I have to agree with Teyber in saying that the finish is astounding

    Very nice paint job indeed! :thumb:

    Did you sand the primer down before spraying? Any polishing at all or is that just because its gloss paint?

    Thanks for the comments everyone!

    Cyprio: yes the primer was sanded with 400 grit paper before the actual paint. No the paint came out that way, no polishing was required :)

    Reflection?

    To me mobo covers are pretty much useless (for anything but looks). HOWEVER, this looks sooo good I've subscribed. :thumb: That's some Very nice work.

    Thanks for the compliments once again :)

    Teyber: its a reflection of AquaLight (my previous project) running in the background :)

    Tyinsar: In most top mods you will find many features which are purely aesthetical. Same goes for this mod, but I will try to make it as practical as possible, as you will see in the future

    Thanks Bill and CK :)

    Time for another video update! ;)


    PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE YOU WATCH THE VIDEOS

    Hey guys and welcome to my 3rd video update. I write this to save time and keep the video file size to the minimum. The previous video updates i made were more of a review on the progress i made on the project. Kind of like a summary of all the previous updates. Some people on the forums told me that they would love to see some live modding footage and unfortunately I couldn't do that, since my workplace is classified and no cameras are allowed in the working area. So, to make this update I had to take some of the work home and do it over here at my place. You probably remember the mobo cover i made. Well today I'm going to make the next part on my to-do list, and that is the PSU cover. If you didn't understand what i said at some parts of the video, feel free to ask, i couldn't do retakes, since i was explaining myself live during the process itself. With that being said, enjoy the video ;)

    Ah. I know it was probably a lot of trouble for you to move all that stuff just to do that update for us, but, speaking for myself I'm really glad you did. I've done some fiberglass work myself, but I learned a coupla things.

    Thanks so much!

    Thanks everyone, glad you enjoyed the vids :)

    I released the part from the plug today, and it came out very well, the UD fabric did it's job and the part is VERY stiff

    I still have to trim and sand the part but I wont do that kind of stuff at home ( Sanding fiberglass can be a very unhealthy when done in the wrong environment)

    So in the upcoming week, i should finish this one and make another one for the other PSU
