    Its good to see another update on this. The top panel is looking ever so sweet. I love how you've integrated the LEDs into the top panel. That is going to look incredible.

    The little dots on this are just dust:

    The 5mm strips will be polished now, so next update will be in an hour or so.

    Absolutely stunning pieces there. For the length of time and effort that went into making them, they look suitably epic. Well done.
