    Bracket glued

    Today I have glued (with two component epoxy) the bracket that will hold the water tank, to the case.

    I will let it rest for 2 days before I attach the water tank to make sure the glue is completely dry.

    I've read this hole project today and i say it is amazing :jawdrop: :clap:
    I think it's really nice how you mod all of your panels. That dragon with his wings spred, do you have the original picture of that because I think that is a kick ass picture.

    I LOVE YOU MAN!! :rock: :rock: :thumb: :thumb:

    I were just wondering if you're logged on to Portent under the name Acidfire?
    /off topic.

    Is the glue strong enough to hold the watertank? some bolts might come in handy, just my 2 cents.

    Second coat

    today I have applied the second coat of color to the front and the dragon side dorr. the gloss is simply impossible to capture with the poor light in my basemant, and the flash just makes it the dragon door look kind of gray. but on the front pannel you can see how shiny it is :)

    picture of the dragon door. this is taken about 2 hours after I painted and the paint is still quite wet. I wenr down just now, and it was not as wet (very sticky) and the gloss is the same :) the flash mede the door look gray, but on the top of the picture you can see the reflection of the box it lays in.

    the flash wanted to play a little with the front bezel as well, but here you can just see the reflection of it aroung the blow hole.

    front door.. Opps, blurry pic. looking forward to put it all together and light the dragon up, and then "enter the dragon" :p

    Swerdfisk: I have 2 aliases... in the modding forums etc, i call myself Acid Burn, but in the gaming world I call myself Hidden Dragon... For the time beeing I just play C&C Generals online, and some times i play counter strike with my fellow bit-tecker, Leeum. :thumb:

    hope you can find something to say now snitch :thumb: :hehe:

    Damn, that paint is REALLY glossy (expletive withheld...)

    Have you already covered how you do the painting? That mirror finish is just...worth salivating over!

    It's not a case, it's a mirror! ;)
    Seriously, seriously shiney. Just wah! running out of ways to say how shiney that is.
    Are you even going to be able to take pictures of the finished case, or is it just going to be reflections of you, your room, your garage.....?

    Thanks for all the comments, guys!! I really appreciate it :thumb:


    hehehe we'll have to see about that... i was thinking the same, but it is only that shiny in perfect light and a perfect angle... when you look at the case from a little distance it is all black, with just a little reflection (as you can see in the first picture ;)).

    hehe I just grabbed the thing that was closest to me at the moment ;)
