    DONE! Yessssssss! FINITOOOOO!
    You heard me- Done! I decided the 5 year mark was way to long to work on one project.
    [​IMG]
    -I got the back off by pulling the end of the reservoir... and a couple of screws. I'd say the tricky bit was prying a really settled in O-ring free.
    [​IMG]
    -Skipping a bit, (You'll see all the holes I punched in the back eventually,) I started final assembly. I put the PSU back in, and found all the wires to plug in.
    [​IMG]
    -I'm slapping the fan panel in and snaking the internal wires out the access hatch here. Looking at this pic I realize I probably didn't add enough airflow. :worried:
    [​IMG]
    -Oh, NO! I'm all out of fancy computer water! -Oh, wait... I had some. I mean, It won't run as fast as Perrier, but I'm in a hurry.
    [​IMG]
    -Oh sh*t. What does rotten water smell like? I obviously thought I wouldn't have been delayed as much as I was.
    [​IMG]
    -I did a 15 second leak test after tossing this thing around like a beach ball. Just kidding, I just filled it and primed the pump.
    [​IMG]
    -Trying to get some internal pics here, but you really can't even get a finger in this thing. :lol:
    [​IMG]
    -Yeah, that's electrical tape. I'm not proud. I don't remember ever testing the power cord, either.
    [​IMG]
    -I omitted the kinda clumsy core insertion. You can imagine how after all the modding to the can that it might not be very round. I needed some razor blade prying and even a rubber mallet to get the back panel inserted.
    Anyway, this is the light/fan/control switch access hole.

    Are you ready for final photos? OK, hold onto something! HERE THEY COME!
    [​IMG]
    -But first, let me show you this weird UFO I saw the other day.
    [​IMG]
    -Spooky :jawdrop:
    [​IMG]
    -Is that a little alien in the window?!

    -Yeah, You knew I was an evil sh*t. I'll get some proper pics out. You only had to wait 5 years. What's day or two going to matter?

    Thanks again to my sponsors. :D I never would get to do stuff like this without them.

    I'm actually sort of in shock that it's finished haha. Every time you start a build it's a bit like an important chapter for me, I can track so many life events through each post. It feels really weird if I'm honest, that same sense of worry you have when a good book/tv/movie series ends, but in the way you want it to?

    You don’t *have* to be finished. Do a whole root vegetable series. Next up? Beets, onion, potato...the choice is yours! Just don’t do leeks. :D

    :D I'm sensing some, "Dude, No way!" from you guys.
    Fear not. I have several models of stuff for the future. Two using techniques I don't have the tools for, and one to blow through all the impulse purchases of plexiglas I made in the past 5 years. :lol: I'll be doing the plexi first. -Of course, that would be the one model that isn't finished.

    @Maki role -You were the first reply 5 years ago, and very nearly the first at the end. :)lol: Of course, Perplekks, doesn't sleep. There was no way you would beat him here. ) It's been fun following you here too. You went from the Sketchup contests to BitTech's diva.
    @artoodeeto - I have two sheets of 'banana pudding' plexi. I've done enough suggestive vegetable names... for now.

    Looks crazy! Everything but the kitchen sink, but you did have a kitchen faucet so I guess that counts.

    Has it really been 5 years? Jesus! Congratulations on finishing, you must be a proud father. Can't wait for the full centerfold spread.

    Thanks :D
    @perplekks45 - Same to you. :D Wait... Is that a heart, or a sc*tum? :worried:
    @InsolentGnome - I tried. What am I going to do with all these sinks?
    @The_Crapman - I pretty much said, "That's long enough!" Final pics... I got distracted. It turns out I didn't have GPU output yesterday. Somehow the PCIE riser got disconnected on the GPU side...deep inside the assembly. The fix involved looking through a hole in the back and poking past the reservoir with a paint stick. THEN windows 10 said, "HDMI? alright! default to 640x480." The new tiles ******** defaults to +1024x768, so I couldn't get the screen resolution changed.
    @Vault-Tec - I think the turnip reference makes it male. It's difficult to say nowadays, though. #METALsexual

    Ow, puns... :lol:
    @Mr_Mistoffelees - Yeah, the project outlived a lot of my fanbase. :(
    I promised pics. I dumped 'em Bit's server. :D

    -and they are BLURRY. :p My camera doesn't like shiny objects. -Never did.

    -There's the opened up back panel. I def needed more holes. It just barfs heat from all orifices.
    [​IMG]
    -After all this time I'm wondering if I put the cpu waterblock on backwards. :worried: Coolant flowing backwards would explain it being kinda hot. I'm REALLY not sure why I never thought to check, either.

    Looks wild man! With those lights, dare I say, a BlooToob.I love the suspension on the feet, the re-use of the piston and faucet spout. The more I look at this, I see more objects I think I recognise.Great job with this one!

    Thanks, everyone. :D
    @Brett89 - Purple tube. It's more suggestive. The UV filters built into cameras don't like purple, though. The springs worked great. It's like a 30 pound bobble head.
    @Nexxo - No, you DON'T, do you. You have to finish before the internet loses the pics of the first half. You need a nagging deadline hanging over your head. :D
    @Dr. Coin - Thanks. :D
    @perplekks45 - Ew, no. :lol:

    Epic. It reminds me of those repair droids from next gen that become sentient.

    It's honestly so cool. So eccentric, would be very fitting as a set piece in a sci-fi tv show haha.
