    This is my favourite mod of this moment. You combine great innovative ideas with a beautiful design and you do it all by hand.

    SPONGE BOB =-)

    Very impressive work the attention to detail is what makes your work pop the next case you build should have a Sesame Seed finish, steel belted pickels, Grilled leather interior and a turbo charged deepfryer with dual overhead grease traps. :D :D

    Very nice tips and tricks on making jigs for metal working and design they are worthy of stealing and incorporating into my own process. :rock: :rock:

    Damn,.... I am blushing,.... lordy. To many compliments all at once! LOL. Thanks for the compliments guyz!!! You all deserve an update! WHA HOOO!

    Update,............................... again. Check it out.

    First,....BAAM! Instant,... new reservoir bracket! I didnt take pics of my doing it because after reading this entire log you should all know by know how I did do it. CHECK IT OUT!
    [​IMG]

    What a pain it was polishing this thing. It was bending all over the place. Anyways,... I can see myself in it so I aint complaining.
    [​IMG]

    Now,... originally it was that plain flat arm. I knew there was something that needed to be done at the time I finished making it intially but I was sure. I didnt wan tot cut anything out of it because it would weaken it. I decided that was a crock and start thinking. I wsa going to to cut out 4 total grooves but I didnt because it would look just like the clamp itself. I needed something different that would separate the arm from the clamp,......... so I only made two grooves, lol. Moving on. It looks sweet though right? Kinda like it was meant to look like that. Crappy pic though,... it's all dirty from touching it. Anyways.
    [​IMG]

    Installed. HOT! I love it!

    Friggin sweet! Gawd.

    Ok,... so now thats done its time for the nner shields. This is my goal, as you already know.
    [​IMG]

    Because the size of this piece doesnt have to be all that precise,... I'm just going to use the model to sketch out all the pieces on the aluminum I will cut.
    [​IMG]

    Using my trusty scroll saw,... I cut right up on the line,.... which was actually something I didnt want do but at the same time I did. Heres why,... cutting right up on the line will save time when filing but when it comes time to sandwich them all together to be filed, what a pain! I couldnt line them up right because I was afraid one would be off and once done filing I would find a flat spot on one of the pieces because it never met the file. Tip,... cut close to the line but give yourself enough slack so you can sandwich them together reall quick without having to wrry about one being off.
    [​IMG]

    Here are the pieces already sandwiched and I just got done filing the flat sides of the pieces. I'm checking to make sure I filed fairly straight, which I did,... of coarse >-|.
    [​IMG]

    Heres all four pieces filed to their general shape.
    [​IMG]

    Here I removed the bolts, and cleaned them up with a air grinder. This time I will draw on each piece and cut and file one at a time seeing its faster that way. Here kinda like what they will look like when bolted to the pumps. Except these pieces will be rounded, bent over a pipe. That goign to to be a pain! I see it now.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I quit a bit earlier then usual so I can sleep. Seeing that I am goignto draw on all 4 pieces I know that if I did that now I wouldnt get to cut any of them. So I'll take them to work with me and draw on them when I am not busy. So when I get home I can start cutting and filing first thing. I cant wait to bend these and shine them up. It's goign to look sweet with the lit up UV green accent pieces! Can't wait! PEACE!

    I just read through this topic and I still can't kinda understand what I just saw... It's 1AM in Finland, but I was totally hooked after first page :D U'r total perfectionist! That's good, but make sure you won't break up!

    Every detail is just awesome, I really can't do anything like that! My nerves would be totally shredden already after making one of those details...

    From 4 to 10 I'd give 11 to this one. Even it isn't finished it's so far nicer than most of cases I've seen!

    PS. And even your cat seemed nice :D

    PS^2: I laughed my a$s off when that little bro started to mod :lol:
