    AArrrrrg! I missed some updates!
    I love the contrast on the 2 layer backpanel vent. The black + frosted white works great.
    The front panel is coming together well.

    the white dust filters really stand out or I should makes the grills harder to see, if you plan on leaving the grills white then I would probably go with a black colored filter to make them stand out more. 2cents...

    Love your project so far.

    I'm looking for black filter material, but haven't found it yet.

    I started to work on some more detailwork. I received some sheets of orange acrylic. Frosted orange, fluor orange and just normal orange and that's what I started to work with on the windows of the sidepanels. I cut some rings that follow the outline of the windows.

    This is just the start. I just can't keep things simple. I will use some frosted white acrylic as well. Hope to show you guys some more coming weekend.

    The window is starting to shape up now. Made two pieces of frosted acrylic. These are slightly wider on the inside of the window then the orange acrylic. Drilled 6 holes and tapped them.

    [​IMG]

    The orange acrylic is mounted on the outside and the frosted white ones on the inside of the sidepanel.

    [​IMG]

    WIll have to wait for some transparant acrylic from my sponsor AC Ryan to finish the windows.

    [​IMG]

    I added the frosted white acrylic with a reason ofcourse. The reason is that it will use some leds to make it stand out.

    Wow, those countersunk screwholes look perfect! I envy your attention to detail and dedication to perfection. I really, REALLY like the look of those openings, they are very creative and very well done. I'm still not sure on the whole case, but I really like those. Mod on brotha'! :dremel:

    Haven't had much time to work on the case the last couple of weeks.
    I know many people like to see coloured lights in a casemod, so I bought 250 orange leds. Don't think I will use all of them, but they were cheap and will always come in handy.
    I like to see the case without any colour, just with "warm" white light. So I bought another 300 white leds. So white light for me and orange for the people that like colour. With some switches I can turn on and off different groups of leds. The switches will be mounted on the backside of the case, but I wanted to keep it in the same style. I used the outtake on the back of the case as a reference. Talking about this outtake.

    And this is what I came up with.

    Today I just want to post some pictures without tellling you guys what it is.

    [​IMG]

    All these pieces are parts of a bigger piece.

    [​IMG]

    It is starting to shape up now, but I still need to do much work on this thing. Maybe I'm just starting to go crazy, to put in so much hours in this part, because it will only be one very small detail in the case.

    Received some materials from AC Ryan, thanks :up: Dennis from AC Ryan.
    So it was time to finish the windows. Still needed to close them with transparant acrylic. It was quite a job to get these things to fit into the orange rings. Here you can seen the transparant window.

    [​IMG]

    And this is the window from the backside of the sidepanel.

    [​IMG]

    Also did some work on the reservoirs. I wanted to keep them in the same style as the windows. So I made some parts from orange and frosted acrylic.

    [​IMG]

    The white frosted acrylic ring will be glued into the reservoir itself.

    [​IMG]

    The orange ring will be mounted onto the polyester lid.

    [​IMG]

    Made some holes for the reservoirs in the lid.

    [​IMG]

    and with the reservoirs in place.
