    Got some more photos incoming, closeup of the outside, inside and a couple of colours I ran though with the internal RGB lighting so you can see how it effects the water and tap.

    Not all of the photos will have the EL tape lighting on and some photos are daylight, room light, direct light and no light.

    More shots of the inside, couple of the colour modes along with some shots without the RGB lighting on.
    Purple looks very nice I think.

    Ok final post unless something new pops up to report back on :)
    Although I do have a total of 200+ photos if anyone want to see them I might add to FB later..

    The day shots, some randoms and finishing of with EL wire only lighting in the dark.

    Should have used some more EL tape for this bottom cover for a more even light, very tight space behind as I have some extra bits in there to make flushing the system a bit more easy.

    Been a great build to work on, the case was a perfect fit for the Tron theme and I hope everyone likes what I did with the case and parts.
    when I get a chance I will grab the white tron from the shed and get that group shot :)


    For now though I'm done, thanks for all the comments and feel free to let me know if I missed anything out or you have something you want to ask.

    Until the next time :)

    It came out great. I really like the interior with the EL accents.

    Final Updates!

    Large EL panel to replace the RGB back-lighting as it was very uneven.

    CoolerMaster headset and Keyboard modded to match the case.

    Beautiful. Just absolutely beautiful. I love how you can remove the shopping list too. Far too many builders make that a permanent part of a build and it ruins the look.

    Best looking CM MasterCase Maker5 I've seen!

    There have been a lot of them of late, it seems, and I was tiring of the look. :sigh:

    An EL masterpiece amongst other things - brilliant work all round. :rock:

    Hey bro, if it's tough, that means you learned something. That's pretty awesome if you're a glass-half-full kinda guy. :) EDIT: plus, you did the theme justice, and did an INCREDIBLE job. You are seriously gifted with modding man! If I had HALF your ambition, my rig wouldn't look like complete poop!

    BTW, sorry for late reply and here's a small update :)



    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Tron cycle update!

    While at the Makerfaire event I bumped in to some nice guys from 3D GBIRE, they had some Ultimakers out on demo and kindly said
    they would do me a quick print, by quick I mean 15hrs lol..

    anyway, this is the result and its not bad for medium settings.

    made some double sided EL tape by folding and gluing.

    This is just resting on the case, not sure where I will place it as yet, maybe on the inside..

    @Deblow Hello :blah:
    you've made an amazing work. Perfect Tron design and technically mastered!

    I've read that EL wires don't last long (a few years or less with direct sunlight, even else at higher voltages): are yours still working?
