    This has turned out very well indeed, the paint looks amazing and so does the cable management. Congratz on your MOTM nomination and good luck.

    I was planning a blue glow like this for my H2O-C7 project. I even tried a few things. Now I have determined that I SUCK! :wallbash::wallbash:

    This is just awesome. very nice balance between the top and the bottom. :clap:

    I'll need to sign a "Do Not Compete" agreement.

    +rep for the effect
