    Think I'd go with the last one, gives a much nicer all round look and more balanced feel to the loop :)

    Coming along great dude, really like the colour scheme and the solid copper tubing :p

    UPDATE 07
    This week i worked on my bay holders. My first design that i have made wasn't really what i expected.
    Picture's will tell the story
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Personally i don't like it. It looks to basic and wouldn't really fit with the rest.
    I started to look for something else then and then i thought to use the original bay holders from Silverstone and redesign it. ^^
    [​IMG]
    Putted some tape on it and start the drawings
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Cutted it out
    [​IMG]
    Then the finished product :p
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Mounted it to check if it would fit nice
    [​IMG]
    And yes it fits perfect ^^
    [​IMG]
    Cdrom in it
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    then the total picture :p
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    The next thing to do fix the mounting for the HDD and make a new Cdrom holder

    UPDATE 08

    Time for a update ^^
    it has bin a while when i posted some progress.
    The reason here for was that i wasn't completely satisfied with the original idea of placing the HDD cage against the case.
    [​IMG]
    This is not really fitting with the rest of the parts. So started to dismantling the HDD cage and
    started to draw some new pieces.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Dropped 1 piece :s
    [​IMG]
    Lucky for me that the pieces are going to be painted so i glued it back to getter.
    Here is the pcb from the hotswap.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    This is how it need to look like.
    [​IMG]
    Sanded all the pieces and putted every thing back to getter
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I even made some HDD cooling (fan will be replaced with a other 1
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Mounted the hole thing against it
    [​IMG]
    Holes for the cables
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Then i also had to make a new Slimdrive holder
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    The mounting mechanism can be changed but i don't know yet
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Like this i can cover up all the cables between the front plate en de plate behind it
    [​IMG]

    Keeping the design going there. Getting a decent frosted acrylic look is difficult but i didnt see much in the way of lines or uneven sanding so nice work there as well.

    Update 09

    Small update of the painting and the extra hardware that i got from a friend yesterday.
    First i dismantled my raptor HDD so i could paint the housing.
    [​IMG]
    I got some 2 component filler to remove the lian li logo's.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    2 layers of primer and after that the white paint
    [​IMG]
    Then the other parts Before it started to paint those i did some miner improvement on the holes. So the bolts sink in the object.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Painting ^^
    [​IMG]
    Putting it all back together.

    Then the hardware that i got to borrow :p
    I got these part from from a very good friend. In the past i modded his Corsair 800D
    Here is a picture of the pc that i made for him.
    [​IMG]
    The parts that i got where GPU CPU motherboard ram.
    Asus HAD 4870x2
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Motherboard is Asus P5Q PRO cpu is a core duo something :p and the ram dono what kind or speed labels are removed.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    The next steps are sending my Gigabyte P67A UD5 back to the shop to get the B3 version of it.
    When i got my new motherboard i can start to build in all pieces.
    So i can start to cut and bend the copper pipes.
