    Thanks Jeff and Macros_the_Black. Nice to hear you liked the result. :)

    I'll post better pictures when i'm back at home. I had no much time, so i thought its better to post one little crappy than no picture at all.

    It takes forever to sand stainless steel. When you say it took all this time to do one part, I believe you. It looks great.

    Thanks Cheapskate.
    'Yeah, i had to use one finger to get those narrow parts sanded proberly. :)
    Also i had done some annoying scratches, but that just gives me a lesson, again, don't rush with the cutting tools. :thumb:

    E:

    Sorry i broked my camera so i have only this one taken with crappy web-cam:

    Fans changed and cutted accelero s1 little smaller (20-25mm) Because it was little too wide.


    No updates or modding in summer. :)

    I will upload more pictures later.

    24h 3dmark03 in loop, cpu stays under 58 and even shortened accelero s1 cooler seems to work nicely. Table for the case is temporal.

    Thanks The boy 4rm oz and WolfandAngel.

    Jeff, those ideas will be used with my CarThemedCase., you will see them later.

    I have been little busy.

    Case needs some cable management, power button, and polishing, also some little parts needs to be installed, but this case should be ready with in 2 weeks.

    Heres some shots more.

    [​IMG]

    Tried to secure that side blade for posing with douple sided tape, as you can see that didn't work. I will install those sideblades later, when i have finished cable management etc.

    Picture showing how reflective surface is, final waxing should prevent fingerprints and make deeper shine.

    [​IMG]

    Final pictures for the case soon. Then i will make external dvd-case and web-cam.

    Thanks for watching and sorry little slow progress.

    I'm going to use polishing wax what's intented to polished metal, re-waxing isn't necessary. It will last years indoors.

    Its hard to remove fingerprints if you left surfaces unprotected, after waxing you can simply vipe them off.

    Don't know much of a protecting copper, but it darkens really fast if you don't do anything for it.

    I would be scared of hitting my leg on that little claw. Great job though, that is amazing metal work.

    Thanks Jeff and MIGUI. :)

    @ 500mph Yeah, i was little scared for that too, that's why i dumped those first, then i tought that it would be shame to waste so much time.

    I just hope that person who gets the case doesn't hurt himself or sue me if that happens. :)

    Backside or hdd-side, nearly finished.

    Uv-lights doesn't look so good in daylight. :(

    [​IMG]

    Window polycarbonate is missing in pictures, because i want to prevent scratches so it will be assembled later.

    Backside where the fans are is also missing some little parts, but case should be finished quite soon. Allthought i had to RMA Zalman psu for the case, but i hope i get new one soon. That's why psu seems to be little too small.
