    Tnx man,I love yor G5 it is amazing :thumb:



    In my country I do not have anywhere to buy plastic panels :duh: ,
    so I decided to use the old parts and everything I found in my garage :dremel: .


    UPDATE

    I start sleeving 24 pin extension with white paracord.
    First I paint extension cable in silver because paracord is little transparent and wires are colorful.

    Nice one, looks really good. I doubted that the leather and carbon look would work out in the beginning but they did so kudos to you. More even for building an air-cooled rig compared to I think 95% water-cooled G5 rigs.
