Don't cut yourself =-)
hehe yeah those edges are quite sharp I'm sanding them now, so they will only look sharp, not acutally be sharp
Looks VERY cool, are you gonna add some etched plexy?
laser etched 1000DPI drawing on green uv reactive plexy
I am going to etch the plexi in top, but not in the side
unfortunately I don't have a laser, but i tink my dremel will do I'm just going to use regular clear plexi and then eluminate it (the top plexi) with green ledsfrom the side. That way the etch will glow while the rest stays the same (at least that's what I'm hoping for
The reason I'm goiung to use only regular clear plexi on the side, without any etches, is that I want the inside (the funky green-glowing water pipes) to be the attraction. In the top, on the other hand, the etch is the primary attraction
Please excuse my spelling mistakes
Looking good there m8. Tell me if you find a place that sell "modder's" mesh.
Starting to cut myself, but with a battery powered dremel, it's not that fast.
hehe i know... those cordless dremels suck.. (well I have never tried one but all the norwegian forums advise you to buy one with a cord, because of that reason).
Good luck mate And take your time! it will pay off, I promise you!
Hmm. I have a feeling that there are only a couple of people paying any attension to my project
Maybe it's because I'm a noob
I feel the same way. oh well. we arent making the comp for them. but for us =-)
hehe I have to agree on that one but it would be nice with some response
I check in on your project every day, by the way love how it is turning out
Good job, it's a waste of a nice aquatube though. You thought about mounting it on top of the case?
Those jaggies look nice! Make me nervous though!!!
Way to break up the monotony of a regular window!
Thanks guess there are someone watching after all
Tomorrow I'm going to a car stylig shop to see if they have anything of interest
Careful! That can get dangerous on the wallet!
Don't worry, I am VERY interested in youre project, so what youre new to the sport, everyone had to start sometime
I happen to know somebody with a laser etching machine (1000DPI resolution )
Thanks mate! I appreciate your interest
You do?!! How cool is that! How much did it cost? did he buy it just because of a mod?!? does he want to give it away?
Hehehe Yeah beeing a modder realy hurts my wallet
I try and stread out my purchases over a few days, and never look at the bottom line as to how much I spent....
That would be likely considered a "coping mechanism" but it is how I can keep my head on this!
I dunno, but his new specialyty are top windows in green UV plexy (different shapes and sizes)
I can get in contact with him and give you some prices if you want.
You can give him ANY pic you want and he will etche it.
Sounds Great! But, I want to try my self I have to show myself that I can do this project on my own you know (first mod and all). but maybe for my next project
Love the cut mate!
Is the door still solid, or does it bend easily?
I would be worried about like braking the thing edge off if I had a cut like that :x
Mod on dude, can't wait to see how the top etch turns out. I'm planning some etching myself and I am really interested in seeing some good custom etches
