    That's looking really good hotton, do you have stops to restrict
    movement of each section (to stop the cables from stressing)?

    i love your Dual PC case MK3 too:D

    i use the picture to answer your question....and you are right ...it can stop the cables from stressing...if each section can swivel 360 degree...i think the cables will tangle to a big trouble...:D

    I don't think the blue fans are bad. :D I like the look of the blue backlight.
    Polishing is not hard. It just takes forever.
    Next months' Mod of the month will be a tough choice. I'm betting it's you -vs.- Dual pc Mk3 -vs.- 5 wood.:eeek:

    Yeah brushed is alot easyer than polishing,for a nice brushed look i would grit down to around 400 starting with a 240 paper, that is just the early stages of griting before you even can start the polishing,for a real nice shine you will have to go down to 1200 and for a real mirror effect 2000, if the parts are small 1200 grit is enugh for mirror effect but if not you gona have to buff for a really long time before you obtain it so griting to 2000 will save you a lot of time when you gona start the polishing.

    Regards.

    I think brushing it to reflective finish would look better. Polishing it might make it look to shiny.
