    Wonderful work, piloux...

    I really admire your attention for details and your skills in painting.

    Only one thing: I think you could improove the fanbus look by increasing the gap between the bezel and the orange plexy or, better, by adding another plexy sheet between the bezel and the original plexy, so the pots are screwed to the hidden one and you reduce the amount of "shiny" metal...

    But that's just my opinion.....

    If you have access to a mill you could try to change the knobs on the baybus to look like valves (maybe like the one on the cover of the HL box).
    If not I'm sure you could buy something like it from a model shop (boats) or if you have a load of time you could file it!

    :)

    Hi guys here is the next update :D

    I have found what I m going to use for the tank reservoir :thumb:

    here it is

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    this thing get the industrial look I was searching for :rock:

    this is used in compressed air applications... then it needs some transformations to received liquid...

    I also found plugs for the tubes ...

    [​IMG]

    and I put silicon into the passages I will not use

    [​IMG]

    here is a test to see the outflow, I had to drill bigger hole to get this flow

    [​IMG]

    It seems to be good, but there is some water passing there

    [​IMG]

    Ill put silicon to end with it


    :dremel:

    Nice! I suggest you dont keep those blue if possible.
    Or if you are keeping them blue, how are you making them fit in with the rest of case.

    Other than that, Well done!

    I don't use the window but the white panel of the gauge, just with the oxidant paint ;)

    Are you going to paint up the bottles like the other guy that posted his project in this thread did? Not to the extent, but it would rock :rock:

    Very nice project, I'm looking forward to seeing it completed :clap:

    i would paint the bottles red, to make them look like a fire extingusher (spelling?), then paint the holders/bottoms with the oxidant. It would make it feel more HL

    As far as bullet holes go, why not see what it looks like when you fire a round through plexi? If you got a good bullet-hole-through-glass effect (with spiderwebbing around it, not just a clean hole) you could back it with another sheet to keep it stable. That would suit the look pretty well, as well as plexi with wire mesh inside/behind it.

    i dont like the whole idea of shooting a gun at a piece of plexiglass, for a computer modification. Come on, you can't just do it in your backyard, obviously someone will call the police
