    it's not a proper mod/build if you don't end up cutting yourself on something...

    Pulling the pins from Antec PSU's takes pressure beyond pressure, thus, the resulting force of me pulling the pin out caused my hand and everything else to jerk back when it came out, and I took a heavy knock on the corner of the PSU casing. :)
    Cheers mate!
    Awesome, thanks a lot!

    So everyone, I got my heatshrink today. But I'm now feeling much too ill to do any sleeving at all. And tomorrow, I have to have another chunk of me cut out!! Again! :waah:
    So I'll just leave you with what I did today:

    And cut!


    So sadly, that's all I can offer today, I do however have the day off Friday, so I will do stuff then! KidMod. :thumb:

    So I'm still unsure on what's going to be happening with me, but I'll keep on updating everyone!
    So today, I have a day off school for various reasons, and I wanted to get some sleeving done, but that wasn't set to happen, let's see why:


    [​IMG]
    DAMN IT! The tool broke. :waah:


    But anyway, I managed to get one cable done before that happened, let's take a look:

    So that will be all for today, until I get a couple of new pin removal sets, I'll have to get one for Paz too! :D

    Don't give up my friend :thumb:

    Show us side shots of the sleeving since that is the best angle to check the work :)
    Be careful when removing pins hehe :)

    Hardest part of sleeving IMO is freeing pins :lol: really is & psu's vary in how easy they free.

    Alright everyone, I'm at Grandpa's. And we've finally redone the chrome due to popular demand! :D Also, we've replaced the vinyl with ash veneer! It's looking great, I'll have pictures tomorrow.

    Alright everyone, I'm finally back, and things are looking good. We've finally redone the chrome trim and the ugly vinyl is gone- we have ash veneer! Lets have a look:


    [​IMG]
    Took a bit of trouble, but the trim is finally clamped!

    [​IMG]
    And this is what we have for the front panel- some nice ash veneer! Cut and ready to go.


    Well, those are the only in progress shots I have, I might as well show you the weekend result, it's a massive improvement!

    So that is the weekend's result, a massive improvement!
    Now then, I don't know when I'll be next updating, I have a fair bit on my plate at the moment, but I'll do my best to keep you all informed! :dremel:
