    I know your in a different country, but in america for paint there is a "Flat Clearcoat" basicly its a spray paint that you could cover all your rust parts in that would not be glossy.... might be an idea so you dont get that stuff all over your house and inside your comp :)

    Love that Case BTW, cant wait to see HL2 playing on it :)

    ok cheers, when i said staining i meant more leaving a nasty white residue all over the inside of the tube, i didnt make it very clear in last post.
    Guess all i can do is give it a try and see hwat i get.

    in fact this is just a clear tube , it is just the water inside which makes condensation and thats why it appear "white"

    awwww... i', slightly disappointed now :sigh: i thought piloux the supper modder had found some ingenious way of making the water milky.
    still, may try condensed milk powder or sumthing and see what i get.

    I wouldnt have thought condensed milk wouldve been as bad as real thing, but then i dont know for sure.
    I presume you were talking about water colour paints?... hmmm...
    I would try white food colouring but i'm not sure that it's even made?!?!

    will look in tesco's nxt time i'm there :D

    water

    Yeah, and the vernish you will apply could maybe create the "watter effect" you had on your wallpaper on the beginning! ;)

    Contiunous current and Direct current are the same thing, lol! :hehe:

    i think you are just mistaken. After all, Direct current means continuous same voltage flow. That meter must be really old for it to say that :eyebrow: But, yeah, they are the same thing, so no worries :)

    And if you can't get it to work properly, maybe you can change the mechanism with a new one. So put in a new meter, but keep the old housing and dial plate. You could then also buy one in miliamps so that your needle wil actualy move without having to shot cirquit something.
