    Finally, the first update. I wanted to do it last tuesday as I had a day off, but I ended up doing hardly anything worth mentioning (mostly cleaning and disassembling). Firstly I cut the sidepanel with my scrollsaw.

    Next up was finishing the hole with a file and sanding paper. This was quite a bit of work as the panel is 2mm thick.

    Today I sprayed the frame, basecoat first.

    For those interested, here's a photo of my working area.

    Hey Koradhil I hope that u will put few more pictures and few closer ones :) Color is really good (almost like in smurfs) but almost makes a big difference. Good job!

    Thanks people, I really appreciate your comments. Its nice to see people comment who've seen my previous project but haven't commented before.

    The drill press I use is a Ferm FTB-13, the cheapest I could find (works like a charm though).

    Hardware installed...

    [​IMG]

    Most of the stuff mounted. Most of the parts still need varnishing.

    My plan for the window: hexx mesh

    [​IMG]

    Also nice to note, my last pics were shot using my new camera, a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8. This is to replace my 4 year old 5mp Olympus cam with only 3x optical zoom.

    [​IMG]

    Here's my plan for integrating the liquid neon in the mod. I want to make some covers for the ends of the tube. These will be painted yellow.
