    Hey guys im back with another update :D

    I decided this morning that i would make the supports a bit simpler so i am not drilling holes in them and they are a slightly different shape but it like it and it means that i can just about cut them on my scroll saw then i just need to use my belt sander to flatten them down

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and then i got them polished (ill get better macro shots another day
    [​IMG]

    i then drilled and tapped them.
    [​IMG]

    attached the first
    [​IMG]

    And the rest
    [​IMG]

    Then after a while i had this done :D rad,pump/res and mobo
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Thats it for today so i will hopefully get at least the next four done tomorrow and i hope to have these supports completed by thurs then i need to make the support that runs between the rad and hdd housings to hold the dvd housing.
    then i need to wait for money so that i can buy my cable management stuff then i just need to get it painted and its done :D

    It looks lovely and all, but I can't help that think extruded/turned Aluminium would have look better.

    It's becoming a really really nice case, but how are you going to do the wiring and tubing?

    Thanks guys And binkz0r i am going to be running black watercooling tubes between the psu housing and other housings with cable extensions in that will be part of the case so that i can just plug the psu in inside the psu housing and then the watercooling tubing will just be routed whichever way seems best :D

    NO CHEAPSKATE! NO!

    :p

    Looking good so far Josh... probably the most obvious thing in the world but it'll look a million times better without that protective film over the plexi :)
