    Well im back for another update :D

    I started off today by cutting new front and back end pieces for the rad housing
    [​IMG]

    I then got them mounted up
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And then i grabbed some mesh and cut it to size
    [​IMG]

    I then marked the hole i need to make on the rad housing
    [​IMG]

    Took it apart
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    and then cut
    [​IMG]

    I still need to file that down so i will get that done first thing monday morning :D

    And i also got a bit bored so i decided to start on a decorative dagger thing (it wont be used as a dagger!)
    Initial cut
    [​IMG]
    I then started to give it a bit of a sharpen (note i wont be able to sharpen this properly as it is alu not anything like stainless steel allthough i am thinking of buying some so i can make a proper dagger of my own :D

    How it is held
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I will probably cut 2 bits of black acrylic to put either side of the handle aswell

    And thats it for today :D

    Ok midday update :D there may be an update later but i dont know yet

    i started where i left off last week and filed down the cutout on the rad housing
    [​IMG]

    and then i mounted the mesh so that the rad housing is finished apart from the struts for the rad
    [​IMG]

    I then took a break to bake this for my family its an apple crumble :D i love em that will be devoured tonight after tea
    [​IMG]

    i then moved on to the pump housing and got the front mounts mounted to the module
    [​IMG]

    then i fitted the front
    [​IMG]

    then i mounted the back
    [​IMG]

    finished
    [​IMG]

    the only bits i have to do on the modules is cut the cable management and the tubing holes and then on the pump/res housing i have to cut the front panel for the res im using but i cant do that yet as i cant afford the res... buttttt that is it and other than that i just have to make supports :D

    so im nearly there now

    Nice.:D It's getting to the point that you should start doing pics of everything together at the end of each log. (HINT!)
    Mostly because I'm feeble minded and can't tell which part you are working on anymore.

    Ok well on with todays update :D

    I started this yesterday but hey,

    I started off by getting out my tile cutter
    [​IMG]

    and attempting to cut the acrylic straight it didnt really work
    [​IMG]

    So i then used the score and snap technique that i learned from syrillian and its very very effective
    [​IMG]

    So i was quickly able to do these yesterday
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Then this morning i got the rest of the 56 black pieces done :D
    [​IMG]

    so now i just need to do the 42 green bits and then i will be ready to start the proper work on them :D

    Damn that's a lot of plexi, nice :D I really have to get myself a decent table saw, I can imagine it saves so much time. If it works properly, off course ;)
