    It seems that all of your pieces are "out of the factory" as they look so perfect!
    Good to see you here, I hope that your relative health is going well..
    See you soon, my friend...

    I must admit that it's some neat stuff you are doing, but honestly I still don't like the rubber molding. I might change my mind when you show us the final pictures though. I'll be keeping an eye on your project. Keep up the great work.

    What did you use on top of the fans in this picture? Are those the frames from aluminum fans (Titan) ?

    Thanks Tey-
    I use a pair of sharp scissors to cut my c-strip.. no glue, I have not needed it thus-far.. BUT, if your using c-strip on very thin material glue sounds like a good idea..
    Sorry to say, no work to report this weekend. With any luck I hope to put together a kickass Halloween-Update. I have "countless" ideas and lots of cool-chrome to work with.. Time is my only problem..

    I just-love Halloween, my favorite holiday of the year..!!

    BOO!!

    sorry, a day (or so late)..
    Here is what I have been working on for the last three (+) weeks:
    The Aqua-Computer Aquaero VFD
    [​IMG]
    for those unaware of this "unit" it is (IMHO) a water-cooling must have. It provides both temperatures and flow-rate for the all-important "'LOOP"..

    what U get:

    lets' hack:
    Using AC Ryan-mesh, made this:

    ahhh! nice to see an update, the sheer quality of your work is amazing, is it just me or does the mesh on the backplate look bronze?

    nice nice, I also did vented PCI Slot plates on my builds too ^_^

    Great work, I hope the LCD will be easy to read with all that mesh in front :) but it sure looks awesome.

    Whoa, spent a whopping 2.5 hours reading through this topic (and even then I was only looking at the pics and mainly reading MS's posts/replies) and I'm amazed...

    Doing a project like this requires patience, time, dedication, time, some more time, and even more dedication... (Did I mention time?)

    Props to U Modsquad, I wish I had the dedication to pull something like this off :)

    Thanks one and all..
    @Nohawk:
    not sure what metal "the stuff" is, but I think it's brass-sheet.. Very thin-gauge..

    I cut these with a pair of scissors..
    [​IMG]
    at-any rate the color (of the stuff) is perfect for the project..

    then the MB--
