    Wow that's amazing art :hip: man, you sure have some special kind of talent :D

    What I was wondering, are the black highlights on the flames done by hand with a brush and just normal paint or is it something else? I can see it is standing out from the flames a bit so I'm curious how you did that?

    Keep it up!

    I am back boys with the creation of the reservoir stand. You probably remember when I went to the acrylic workshop and I cut the 2 similar designs for the stand.

    [​IMG]

    I wanted to put together these 2 pieces so I had to create something out of acrylic. Here I calculated the distance between them, and I made the design in a piece of paper to use it to cut the acrylic.

    [​IMG]

    I drilled some holes for the screws to pass through. I used screws and epoxy glue for utimate durability. (I painted the pieces before just to test something!)

    I left that 24 hours to dry. Then I thought that a mesh would nice on it! I didnt applied the mesh the same time, I just made the right design to fit on the stand!

    Next here comes the primer!

    I used the same painting technique as the side panels. I also added some orange fluorescent acrylic which I made out of a 22mm hole saw. This will add some glowing effects later on!

    Not for this mod but if you ever want to use a color that will show light through...

    In the US we have Hobby Lobby and Michaels craft stores and the have translucent colors like this for kids and adults to make fake stained glass decorations for windows called "Dream Catchers" or "Sun Catchers". You might check out similar products where you live.

    Applied to clear acrylic it makes patterns and allows the colors to show through.

    Very nice work all around. :thumb:

    Modding a PSU is quite easy, are you still in need of some instructions.

    All the psu's are mostly the same to take apart, just undo the screws on the top to allow you to remove the metal covering. Once inside, the fan will be connected onto a board in the PSU (its like a CPU fan connector just smaller). Pull the fan connector off the board, then chop the fan off the connector leaving enough wire on the connector end so you can solder the fan onto the connector wires, make sure you get the wires correct (positive to positive, and negitive to negitive).

    Or if you want to go for the more neat approach you can get the little metal bits out the plastic connector by using a pin. There will be a little hole in the plastic part of the connector were you need to press the pin into to get the metal bit out the plastic. You can then solder the new fan directly onto the metal bit and then slot it back into the connector.

    As for the led's you first need to determin what voltage the PSU supplys to them so I can work out what value of resistor you need. Do you have a Volt meter.

    Ebay sells volt meters for about £15. Why do you need someone who has modded that specific model?
