    So is your real image in one of those pics? I looked, but couldn't make out anything. :confused:

    I'm hanging out for a while in a nursing home while my foot gets better, but I can still type. :D

    Those pics of the back IO plate almost made me faint. :eeek: Just be sure to not go overboard on the copper. Too much is not to good, IMHO. However, I am eagerly awaiting the continuing updates on this very nice project.:clap: :clap: :clap:

    I will try to achieve a good balance TN, I promise..
    I am not the man I was years in back, my agenda for Saturday :
    cash pay check
    purchase groceries
    cut the grass

    Thrilling stuff.. :thumb:

    I did accomplish a bit of work today (Friday night) more shiny copper cutting/drilling..
    I hope to continue work Saturday night and post-up perhaps- Monday..

    Thought you might be interested in the new AC copper hard drive coolers. Little bit of work with some copper plate and it could be all copper except the plexi thread connectors. :brrr:

    Do a test run on that lacquer first. For me, the lacquer coat made brushed copper look like a crayon.:(

    More copper:

    You mean on the waterblocks?
    MY can of Copper Shield has been used on the other copper-parts I cut with great results. They don't list a temp-range so no plans on using it on the waterblocks..
    What I have been working on:
    [​IMG]
    new copper skid plate for the Eheim 1046 pump in it's (defunct)(chrome plated) Aqua-Computer full metal jacket:
