    One more update for you guys is on the way!
    Many things I did these days and I am a couple of steps (or more) before the finish line.

    First of all is the creation of a "proper" slim dvd stand. The first one wasnt the best solution so I had to create something better. So I came up with that.....

    A single piece of aluminum angle which I used to create a housing for the slim dvd.

    Neat idea huh? :p

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Holes for cathode and led switches..... done!

    [​IMG]

    Various steps of the top acrylic polishing process. 180-230-320-400-600 and polishing buffer wheel at the end.

    [​IMG]

    Led stands were made out of 3mm acrylic and 1mm cnc precut pieces. I gave them the shape accordingly of their placement in the case.

    [​IMG]

    Pieces filed and sanded.

    [​IMG]

    Glued together with plastic welder epoxy.

    [​IMG]

    Filing, sanding and final fixes with some isopon. And ready for painting!

    [​IMG]

    Here is also the gpu stand after the addition of aluminum putty. I filed it into the desired shape and its ready for some painting too!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I used black hammered paint for those parts as it naturally gives a thick and textured surface and its durable as ****!!

    [​IMG]

    I also finished the corners of the bottom case. I used black hammered paint here too for the reasons explained above even though it wont be visible I wanted that textured-durable touch inside the bottom case too.
    I let the visible part unpainted in order to apply some carbon Di Noc vinyl I had available.

    I finished the modification and installation of the 5 windows on the top part. 2 of these windows are semi frosted for aesthetic and lighting reasons. I also gave the top one, a shape to follow the ventilation's line.

    Aluminum parts arrived from the powdercoater with the color of choice : black semi matte.

    And I will leave you with some teaser shots!

    I'm a bit bummed out that those knobs for the fan controller don't seem to sit in the center of the holes made for them in that piece of blue acrylic....

    However, I kick myself for nitpicking on that - because the rest looks absolutely flawless to me.

    Angel... You are amazing!
    You are both the reason why i hesitate to mod anything!
    (it would feel like showing a stickman drawing to Davinci..)
    And yet you are an inspiration to the community as an artist, a constructor.
    As a true honest fullblooded MODDER.

    Please PLEASE!!!! keep up with the most awesome modding work, every piece is a joy to follow in its creation and a sight to adore in its completed form.
