    Can someone get my eyes for me? I seem to have misplaced them...:eeek:

    *edit* Darn it! your log inspired me to take pictures of my V2000b, but my card reader is at work! I'll PM you a link to them once they're up, hopefully you see something that will help you.

    GREAT looking work so far, definitely subscribed!

    Awesome job on the stripping and polishing. Instead of wax you might want to consider a couple coats of clear powder coating.

    Can you pls tell me why you use WD40 instead of just water for the sanding?

    Finally got around to uploading pics, but I won't clutter your (awesome) thread with them, so here they are. Basically, there's a few holes drilled for cables and a lot going on that you can't see from the front. When I get some good pics of the back, they'll be in the same folder.

    There's my update, how about one from you? Can't wait to see more!:rock:

    thank you all for the comments

    I have been quite busy the last couple of weeks in work so i dont have much time to put my hands on the side pannels as wished

    Next week ill go get some spare time to start the second stage on the sanding and start on the polish ( hope so )

    thank you for the advice but i have seen a lot of ALU Polished and clearcoted and looses all the bling and by the time passes gets all Foggy

    further on i will show a Detail ( like in the Cars ) on the case to get that perfect Mirror efect...

    Its for not geting an electrical shorcircuit on me :D and on the sander, also helps to get the surface highly lubed and the sandpapper last longer

    nice WC setup you got there , thanks a lot on showing the drills ill be doing allmost the same but whith acrilic parts between but thats is for latter now i must concentrate on polishing :wallbash: its an hard hard work



    thank you all and sorry for my bad and rusty english

    Your english is better than my Spanish or Portuguese will ever be:lol:

    Just an FYI, I took some quick pics of the back side/cable management after I saw your most recent post, they are now under the link I gave you before. It's (always) a work in progress, but I'm taking a break for now. Soon I will move the 24-pin and the 8-pin EPS cable, and eventually I am WC'ing the GPU.

    Enough thread-jacking, can't wait to see more of the outside and I hope those pics will help on the inside as well!

    Ooh, i like shiny cases. You might try waxing to prevent fingerprints and darkening.

    microfibers towels, lots of them, i used this type of towels because they dont scratch and remove a lot of dirt

    [​IMG]

    first and second pass whith the buff

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and is time to get a new spray can of cleaner and continue the job

    Very nice job and welcome to the world of polishing!
    It is very time consuming but the results are worth it.

    I watch.
