    Hi

    I'm very intrested in the way you sandblasted the text in the tube.

    So I take it that the sandblasting process isn't very violant? since it didn't rip off or damage the tape?

    Have you tried sandblasting glass? would that work as easy as on the plexi ?

    thank you!

    I'm in the typing mood so i'm going to wager a guess.

    SandBlasting uses a very fine silica sand shot out of a gun from a air compresser. this fine sand scraches the surface of the plastic/glass and thus leaves the image. The skill in it is getting the pressure and exposure time right. To long and or too much pressure will make the sand eat through tape so fast that you won't be able to stop before it gets through scraping the attempt. So that being said i think that glass is much harder to eatch has it's harder+ it's shock sensitive so it will shatter very easy. :D

    ...and don't forget too mention that sandblasting is very VERY bad for your health (smal particles deep in your lungs) so use proper safety equipment when you go at it!

    tnks all.
    I've done sandblasting on glass too:
    [​IMG]
    (logo from a dutch pc forum)
    I used glass, because normal plexi became full of scratches from my mouse.
    The strange thing is that the sand leaves deep cuts in the glass (at 7bar :p , plexi i'm doing on 5bar) but didn't damage the (normal) tape. Might because the tape is soft, and the glass is hard. the only problem was that because the lots of air small amounts of sand were blown below the tape at some small corners.

    The idea of using oil into the watercooling is to fill the res. almost to the top. but filling the last with oil. So it won't circulate trought the system.
    I will try how clear oil will work in top of the water, too see if there aren't strange reactions or something like that.

    Not same as Piloux?


    Like me you did't use that modern options stuff that Piloux used right?

    Is your paint a oxydant, or is it just paint?

    [​IMG]
    the res. with a blacklite in top of it. thats looks realy chemical :clap:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    a experiment with water and blue oil. it didn't work well, the blue color was almost gone after some hours.

    [​IMG]
    a shot of the back, offcourse there will be added holes for the water tubes, i think the space beneath the PSU is a good place for it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    might you know this block, its an innovatec gf4 block. the flow is just made by a space from a few mm in height between the top and the flat copper bottom. i think thats not good for the flow. so i took my dremel, and made a water-way and removed some plastic from the top. Hope its gonna work, i'm almost shure :p

    [​IMG]
    hiding the CCFL cable on the same way i did on the legs at the normal case.

    [​IMG]
    and a shot from the front while adding rust at the inside.

    [​IMG]
    the fanhole with fingerguard at the top. just to give the motherboard some fresh air. There will also be a 80mm fan at the side, a very silent one in the psu and a 120mm at the other side.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]
    And after some minutes. The bright orange color on the top left will be gone after some days, and change into red. You see also thhe logo i made for the front. it will be mounted beyond an metal window.

    thats for it now. comments are welcome. now i'm going to keep myself busy with finishing up the inside (rust paint, cable's, pipes) and mount some hardware and thinks like that.

    very very nice ferry i like the general "theme" of the case, i like your idea of the high pressure tubing, one of my favorite ideas of your case, but other than that your case is just perfect industrial/chemical look.......... :thumb: keep it up
