    Ones a gain a small update four now.
    Made the lower switch panel. And this one was a pain in the rear end. The holes were overlapping in the back. So thy got a few bits broken. But thats not a biggy.

    [​IMG]

    Thay look out of line but thats not a problem. The holes are a bit bigger then the switch it self. Did dent had any drill bits that match the size good in nuf.
    So after painting it will be a lined better :dremel:

    Ok a nice update four now :D
    In this pic you can see the front panel i made.

    [​IMG]

    And in this pic i held up the main front panel. To have a look how its going look.

    [​IMG]

    In this pic i made the side blocks. Fits nice and tight :D

    [​IMG]

    And hire i made the lower front panel and side blocks.

    [​IMG]

    Hire i am holding the main front panel. To give me a good view and feeling :D

    [​IMG]

    But hire i noticed something not good. I had thought's if the switch wood fit properly. And yes thy don't fit good :wallbash:
    Ant i noticed it wood fit if i bent the connectors of the switch. Seen in pic below.

    [​IMG]

    And this is not what i wanted. It makes screwing the rings on the switches hard to :duh:
    So i probably gonna make a strip and place it under the switch panel. And adjust the length of the main front panel.
    So the switch is nice and free :dremel:
    But thats four a other time. The panels ain't glued ore what so ever. so i can change it if i wish :thumb:

    The highest i ever seen it rise over hire was 37C :eeek:
    I was once in Spain. And there it was 42C but that was a nice 42. The air was real dry. And don't feel like your skin is been hold just above boiling oil.
    Hire if you hold you arm in the sun. It feels like your arm is just a cm ore so above boiling oil. Du to the moist in the air.
    Normally the temp four may is between 18 and 22C.
