    Thank you all guys!!!:thumb:


    Thanks Antony! Those photos are looking good, I love them:) You guys picked the best ones!


    OK. I received email from Tom from ChilledPC yesterday, he confirmed that he cut most of the stuff, just few bits left so I believe that means these final pieces will arrive this weekend and will finally be ready to show you so good stuff. I can tell that some of them will be front panel bits, so after some time working on them I will show you nice full fornt panel! I can't wait, I can tell you that! :rock:

    OK, I finally received the rest of the item from Tom.
    All this stuff is so beautiful, but don't want to spoil you guys and show it all now:p
    I was very busy working on panels this weekend and don't have much to show of finished parts, except of this USB socket. I bought this nice USB socket which will be plugged to the mobo front panel pins. This is actually "mount plate" for this socket. It looks like this...

    First thing after I received the package, I unpacked it all and took it to the bathroom to clean it up. I gently took off the protective film and washed every single piece, then dried it one bath's edge. Even with lights turned off, all acrylic pieces looked amazing... So here they are... I guess you may already know which part is for, especially from those sketchups I showed in the past. I'll leave you with those photos for now... :D
    ...Enjoy:thumb:

    Hi Mike,

    Really looking good - what are we looking at time wise now... 12, 24 months till its finished :D

    Loving this build, its converted me to small builds. HTPC next for me, and small will be just right.

    PS well done on MOTM

    Lookin' great phinix!

    Regarding the USB connector - could the screws be changed? The silver one really look jaring and out of place against that sexy black :p

    I like the USB port bracket, looks great. The plexi bits look fantastic, very clean edges, very pro.

    More bits to glue up, it's gonna look great when you do. Port plate is money, but I have to agree with stonedsurd on the screws. Just doesn't fit the build.

    Holy cow, Batman. That's nice!

    On a side note: Shouldn't you have waited with removing the protective film until you had fixed those small "flaws"? (= start and end points of the cutting tool)
