    I seem to be on a bit of a roll, may aswell keep on going ;)

    [​IMG]

    I de-riveted the bottom panel; this will need to be painted as it can be seen on the case.

    [​IMG]

    The cuts I made to the top and side panels were filed. I used needle files on the corners and then sanded all the cuts with 600 grit sandpaper.

    [​IMG]

    My next task was to get the panels sanded down in preparation for painting. I used 80 then 220 grit on the electric sander.

    A picture my dad took of me sanding :p

    [​IMG]

    Managed to catch the sun going down on these shots. The panels (mostly) down to the bare metal, I couldn’t apply pressure with the sander on some of the cut areas so they had to be done by hand. What matters is that the bumps of the textured paint are now smooth :)

    From another angle.

    A shot to show how smooth the cuts are after extensive sanding :D
    The panels are off to a local painters to be painted silver properly, should have them back this week and I can begin setting up the water cooling.

    Hey Leeum, your dad keeps a good lawn...........does he use weed n feed :D

    Sorry dude

    One thing with sending your paintwork out is that it comes back looking so good and when you've put that much effort into sanding something its worth it with out a shadow of a doubt IMO

    This weathers been great for working out doors...............imagine doing that in January :duh:

    Top quality..............keep going bud :thumb:

    Cheers Paul :thumb: I totally agree about the paintwork thing, I didn't fancy taking any chances with a spray can. The front bezel will have to go to the painters at a later date, I've still got some plans for that yet.

    The painter didn't say how much but he's assured me it "won't be much" :naughty:

    Thanks for all the kind comments :D
