    Looking good! And yes I will be stealing some of your ideas when it comes to fabricating angled aluminum bars ;)

    I like case evolutions like this, take the original and make it bigger and more awesome. Cant wait to see V2 completed next to Ioncito :)

    I also dig your piston project weight :lol:

    Now what's only left before paint, its the curve reinforcement.

    I'm having trouble finding a mcp350/355 or compatible for my XSPC acrylic reservoir here in Argentine, it sucks being in the end of the world when looking for hardware :S

    Thanks stonedsurd, it's good to know I'm not alone.

    My uncle just gave me the most beatiful PSU ever built for this project, Vitsuba SAN-47-S, 470w, blue lighting.

    Ouch! the hardware there is very expensive. Newegg sells the same MB for $134.00 US. Truly great modding skills. The power supply mod is definitely the BOMB.
