    Ah! Always good to see a Lian li build :) I've done a couple myself, the most recent is half done mind you.
    If I could give some advice, always finish your build, even if it costs more then you expected, it's worth it in the end, knowing you built it and it works :).

    Happy building! :)

    But as i did the sleeving for the first time, i guess i did it not really good.
    I don't like the result. Heatshrink seems to me too ugly )))

    I decided to remake it without using heatshrink.

    Here is the result. Looks much better to me:

    I agree no heat shrink looks lots better :) from your pics so far it's looking good, great finish to your paintwork with clean lines, can't beat a good black and white build :thumb:

    Time for the inside panels

    Ok, with the help of cardboard, did the templates of the inside panels:

    The AutoCad version:

    And the real ones after lasercut:

    Here is the plan on how to place them:

    Shurika, as i promised, here is a short video on how i make it



    I guess the same method works with MDPC sleeving as well.

    Cool vid! I'll have to try paracord next time. I just made my first attempt at sleeving and used my fingers to push in the staples... You're right, sliced the **** out of several of em. Looking forward to the rest of this project.

    What type of paracord did you use? I presume it's the 3mm stuff with the centre pulled out?

    Thank you all guys!!

    It's usual paracord 550 Type III, approximately 4 mm. There was something in the center, I don't know how to call it, but i had to pull it out.
