    I think that GPU block should be compatible with the HD4890. ;)

    @brinkz : there is no trick to polishing aluminum. It takes time. As old new boy said "mind-numbing", very-true. But, I like to numb my mind. My method for polishing aluminum:
    loud music, beer and persistence. Don't stop polishing until it's shiny as hell. Just that simple.
    The HeatKiller stuff is very cool.
    Three years ago it was Aqua-Computer, two years ago EK waterblocks. Today it's watercool's heatkiller blocks.. Sexy stuff...
    more April-showers (they bring May flowers)....
    the pioneer drive:

    Finished the cutting on the chrome 5.25" butt-plate today
    [​IMG]
    drilled and tapped it to accept M4 bolts
    [​IMG]
    this way it bolts in the case like any other 5.25" computer component.
    [​IMG]
    I added the MB to the case for mock up
    [​IMG]
    you end up with some nice reflections of the board off the chrome
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    then the DVD drive mod
    [​IMG]
    the trick is to make sure (measure twice) the bolt holes are under the disc tray
    [​IMG]

    I love this picture..

    [​IMG]
    success !!
    then M4 tapping
    [​IMG]

    MS

    April looks to be a bad month for modding. Super busy at work, (60) hour weeks coming up.
    I will do what I can, but there may not be much progress this month.. :miffed:

    Thanks Mino. Yes, Indian Larry was (IMHO) one of the best custom bike builders out there. I had the opportunity to meet him about ten years ago in Sturgis. He was just the way he seems on camera, a real "down to earth guy". I spoke to him first at his booth, then hours later in a saloon. He was at a table with his buddies when me and mine walked in. We bought them a round of drinks and they did the same for us.. Back/forth more than a few times.. Very-cool..
    @ head : the taxes are filled. I spent money I don't yet have.
    @boy4 : thanks, that is why I love chrome-plate, the reflections you get off it. The polished copper is sweet but expensive. Two 12"x12" (.04" thick) sheets $100US..
    I need to get a hold of Fred Stinger for information on how he polishes copper. I messed around, but it seems a bit different that working with aluminum.
    I also ordered some Copper Shield in the hopes it will keep my copper parts nice and shiny..

    You meet IL? WOW!!!!
    I saw the price of the copper with my usual supplier, 0.4inches are about 2mm, 12"x12" are about 30*30cm , he asked me about 63 euros for a sheet of the same dimension, about 83USD ... Too much money, and it's NOT polished...
    To obtain a good polish with copper I use always the Iosso cream, it's made in USA so probably you don't have trouble to find it :)
    The copper shield will be a good product to have in hand , specially here that near all the decoration outside the houses are in copper, but I can't find it. Now I'll search in depth :)

    Yep, but that was 10 years ago. I met or at least saw all those "biker build off" guys before they where what they are today. Thanks for the information Mino.
    @ Langer : I agree, I love exile true less is more. Simple clean stuff.
    It seems bit-tech reviewed my MB here less than a stellar review.. sorry to say.. BUT the main reason I purchased it was it's appearance. The black/orange is ideal for the project.
