Bummer about the plexi, hope you get it sorted out.
I like those feet though.
thank you all
I called the laser cutter guys, but they say that I ordered it in that material, and that's kinda true, damn colour codes. so no refund for me
but I like it anyway, it would have looked much better if it was transparent but it's not bad.
anyway here's an update
so... I completely dissembled the case and sanded away (nearly) all the rust and polished it quickly and applied an anti-oxidation thing.
the polish is very rough, but I think it looks better that way. I'll maybe keep the case like this and not paint it.
it's upside down
marked out where to drill the holes for the feets,
yay, new tool
I still need to sand/polish the inside
this is all for now, thanks for reading
comments are welcome !
Hell yeah! It's about time we get an update! The modded feet are a prefect fit.
The only reason that ugly translucent stuff is so common is because it's used for signs. I hate that we are limited to what the sign making industry want.
I think the frame would look good if you could get it blued, (as in gun finish 'blued'.)
-Not something you would have access to, I'm betting...
tough luck about the colour codes, but I bet that you will never be doing that again
Really liking the way this case is coming out. I might be pinchin' a couple of ideas (with your permission of course) like the double layer "skin" and the overhang on the front.
Good luck, and carry on regardless of all setbacks and obstacles. It's what we al want. You have no say in this matter
Tough luck on the colour codes, still looks pretty good though.
Great work! Love this project<3 Thanks for the update Dark
Hey man! Any updates? I miss them here!
^I second that!
hmm interesting shape like it
an update you say... hmm... interesting.
here you go, but just a small one.
I don't have much free time this time of the year, but I still managed to do some work.
the aquaero is now mounted on the case, I just need to make some cover for the cables in ACryans modder's mesh or what ever it is called.
the red "plexi" doesn't look so bad after all.
sry, crappy picture quality
and I also got these from Bill at MNPCtech, they are really awesome. I'm definitely gonna use them on more cases.
click here for a link to the product page !
but I still have to mount them.
this case is going to get some hardcore modding in some month.
that's all for now cya
That aquaero has a nice place there.
remember to open a new thread about the hardcore when it started
nice progress going on the neophyte
The Aquero looks right at home .
tjay@TJ, I'll start a new thread for that one
Great work.. The Aquero looks perfect there in the case..
The red plexi doesn't look too bad but it must be annoying not having the right stuff as I can imagine it would have look even better, yes I know its hard to imagine..
If you lived in england I could of had the plexi laser cut in the right colour for free and then sent it to you as I have the facilites atm.
I subscribe to this project.
That's a wicked looking build.
