    Sandpaper: 800, 1200, 2000. (start with the 800. But even better
    is to sweep the whole area with 200grid or so at first. the the
    following rout. But be shure to move back and forth, back and forth etc.)


    Yes I haven't polished the acrylic, but will do later.
    Thanks for the remider thou. :thumb:

    Thanks for the positive feedback!

    ;)

    That looks really really good... are you going to treat the finished surface though? Autosol is great for making things shine but that will go tarnished and rusty if you don't at least put some wax on it (similar to when you polish your car)

    I think you should put the acryllic plates on the outside. Would look better IMO

    Imo, the acrylic plates look great where they are now, only, they should be lit up.

    I have to agree with fredz too, this way it's nice and understated.

    Looking really good, those edges came up a treat!

    yeah just mount a few LEDs in the bottom of the acrylic, it'll look amazing if you hide the wiring well

    You just laid the planing open for the webb. :thumb:

    But we will see when theres time to continue.
    But there will be four LEDs on the plate with
    9 holes and possibly two on the other side...

    Thanks!


    • The surface on the metall has been sprayed with "anti rust" or something. It looks more like glas now :)

    It will be used untill the GPU block arives...

    Since the work was made mostly on the fact of outlook, estetics etc. I didn't think of air pressure.
