    Today I will mount the plexi window. Some parts look a bit bent in my pictures, but everything is just straight in reality. A professional photographer will take some shots soon :rock:

    Looks brilliant Franklin, im really anxious to see this once its been professionally photographed.

    Are you still intending on entering that modding competition, because I dont think anyone else has a chance ;).

    That things is mint Fraklin. The acrylic window just gives it taht extra touch to finish it off. Especially how the window curves in where it would split to form 2 sperate pieces. Brilliant!

    What sort of lighting are you intending to use?

    Looks great I even like the idea mounting the plex on the outside rather then the inside, emiting a brighter green border on the edges? Goes very well

    looks fantastic - so clean and solid

    The only thing that's bothering me, in the window are the rivets in the middle section going across the case...

    for the rest good job dude, you deserve to win

    I started working on the last details. The first thing I did today was making a aluminium cover that closes the gap between the aluminium cover and the radiator. This spot.

    The aluminium has the right shape and fits.

    Now it needs some polishing.

    Another detail is the white acrylic that covers the aluminium plate that devides the upper and lower part of the case. In front of the aluminium baydrive cover there is no acrylic yet.

    So I made one.

    and placed it.
