    :lol: I was on the phone with Bill when he saw this. His post isn't as vulgar or energetic as the reaction i heard.

    Cheaps & Bill <- Now that's one hell of a compliment! :)
    Not sure Bills pockets are deep enough to feature one of my works though! :lol:

    I'll drop you a line when it's done and I have taken some good pics. Should be within a week.
    It will be an honor to get my work on there! :thumb:

    Dark~3nergy <- I'm not completely sure what you mean but I'll try to see if I'm correct. :)

    The wire from the pump goes to one of the usb's at the bottom of the Wii.
    The wire from the temp gauge runs down behind the left reservoir, and goes to the other usb. :)

    Sleeving done! I used the last of my MDPC sleeving.

    - Some say it's made from the hair of angels, and woven but the Virgin mary herself! - :lol:

    But it IS that good! :)

    Then there was the small matter of the little scratch in the temp gauge holder.

    Ready for the top to be milled:

    The result:

    And the Wii as it sits now:

    It's actually done! I ordered some PrimoChill ICE Blue liquid last night and it should be here by tomorrow. Once that is in the system and I get it dusted off, it's time to take some good pics, and that's it! :rock:

    Nice Wii mod :D been following it for a while and really enjoyed it :D Gives me some ideas on what I want to do with my PS3 Muhahahaha. Anyway is the window at all lighted up? Couldn't be that hard to steal some power from the DC input? Sure might be late now though but would be a cool effect in the dark :D

    Dragonite <- I'm not much of a nerd when it comes to electronics. So the only way for me to steal power from the DC input means I would have to pull the plug from the wall to turn it off... Didn't want that! :)
    I was thinking of LED's here and there, but I decided to leave it blank on that part. :) But when it's dark you can actually see the cd-laser through the disc! :lol:

    Waynio <- That was the exact same experience I had when I started this.
    Nope, no word from Nintendo. But then again I havn't shown it to them! :lol:

    And ty to both of you! :)

    Seeing tha lazor is rather nice though :D You could ad a Dip switch or a small punch button on the bottom to shut the LED off but you if your not so god on soldering electronics it's probably for the best not to try it :p Doing like I did and the first electronics mod I did on my computer was replacing the green status LED on the motherboard with a blue one is probably not so very wise now after I did it :D but it went fine and have done lots of other stuff since then :D Learning by doing is my motto with the use of some reason and logic obviously :p :dremel:

    That is awsome
    I love how you managed to glue that piece and also use the lathe on it without it coming off. I will make shure to remember that glue. The rest of the build is awsome as always and nice to see it finished. I'm not shure I agree with the placing on the floor though, this build deserves a more honourable spot at eye level.

    Greate work :thumb:

    The_Gnu <- I actually contacted Henkel Norden to find the best glue Loctite have for aluminum when we built an antenna a while ago. It IS the best they have for aluminum! :)

    I would agree on the position of the Wii. But since I only have a 1 room appartment and a lot of stuff, there's a space issue! :)
    I'm hoping to move to a bigger place within the year, and it will get a better spot! :)

    Here we go! The final pics!

    I'm not much of a photographer but with the right gear it actually get's pretty well. I've just used a Canon Ixus 950, and a little "dog-house" that was left in our old photo-lab at work.

    You be the judge! :)

    Sorry in advance for breaking the rules of picture size... ;)
