    Hi folks, I'm to present you my new project :)
    This will be a long term project, without any prediction of when is ready.
    I'm gonna start to adventure into a new world of modding where all work will be done by me.
    I will use machinery that had never tried before, so i have still to practice to become the results that i pretend.

    The project consist in a full interior reconstruction and paint job of the chassis
    Didn't have nothing programmed for the hardware, only the WC system is more or less defined.

    I pretend to mount two 240mm radiators on the bottom and maybe one 120mm rad next to the board.
    I intend to create a system ready for dual loop, but that are still things I have study before.


    Leaving the conversation and passing to the photos:

    I'm honestly blown away by the quality of your work so far, it is like Atilla but with acrylic. I love all the custom parts, even for things that won't be seen like the cable channel.

    I will be following this log with great interest!

    Have Fun,
