    Hi here comes the time for an update :)

    Ihave found some olds switches that will be nice on the front control panel, I found a gauge too but I dont know if it is still fully functional, but I like it , this give a nice look with the front bezel I think...

    Here is the layout of the front control panel

    still a lot of work to do... :dremel:

    unfortunately the red tube in my old crt has just gone so the rust looks more like mould right now!! :wallbash:

    Amazing work again Piloux.

    If you could change the display on the meter so it looked like a geiger (sp?) counter would be cool. Would fit in nicely with the Half life theme too. :hip:

    Looks really good, i've missed this since page two so its gd what ive seen so far, this is gonna be a seriously good project when its finished. had a quick look at a couple of pages as i cant be bothered to read the whole thread.
    Can't wait to see when its finished.

    The red and white switches don't go at all with the theme so i'm wondering how your going to do those, but im sure it will be fitting with the case. Also the toggle switches look a bit outa place as well.
    nice work

    Looking great, as usual.

    Figure out of the gague is operational? It looks a bit out of place, even though it is metal...maybe scuff up the surface or something?

    Can't wait for more. :D

    I'd have to agree - the buttons definately need aging :D really awesome work so far though, as usual ;). Perhaps you could do something like glue and some other material (i know it sounds wierd, but maybe glue, oatmeal and food colouring?) to make some bubbled rust on the gauge plate, and perhaps you could break it open and do some yellow watermark style rust on the gauge as well? This mod has so much potiential its not true, i think everyone has thought of doing a hl mod at some stage, and i know if someone is going to do it properly, its you :)

    I love the gieger counter idea, when the comps under full load it would be very cool to have the gauges needle jumping around and flicking up and down, i think if it does work you could probably do it via the serial port pretty easily? It would be awesome to have pulsing lighting too rather than static lighting, but im sure you've got heaps figured out already :clap:

    Nice work!
