Dear compmodder, stainless steel is near two times harder than alu, but after the cut you need only a bit of sandpaper to have a shiny metal, it's hard but it give you satisfaction, trust in me! Last night was a modding night, now I want to arrive to the end of this stage of work, I want to do a little more, but firt I need to finish this stage, so here are the updated pics : The last pic is the Zalman fan controller, want to take a closer look at the holes for locking it in place (and the dvd) ? Here you have : Now I must put in place the front fans, but without the screws, I donìt want some screws in the front of my Glacial! After lot of thinking, I decide to use two scrap pieces of blue UV reactive plexy : I've decided to have two identical pieces, so I've done the 4 fixing holes, then I've bolt all together, and afer a little use of the sandpaper here is the result : Not so amazing, I know. But go on with the big center hole : A little bit of polish compound : Final result! Now I must do a recessed hole to hide the screw head : Eye candy pic : I'm quite satisfied, now to lock the whole assemply in place I use some silicone (may someone suggest me the right english word?) If you take a closer look, the hole in the plexy is a little bit smaller then the necessary. It's not an error, guy! It's done to give a special glow to the fan contour, stay tuned for the next update where I will try to show you what I mean! In the meantime, happy modding from Italy!
