NZXT Switch 810 Purple Heart Tribute "MERIT" for PCS4VETS awareness project - Page 3

post #21 of 28

Standard closed loop look:

TUBE Sleeving:
You want to cut on the inside curves on a side that does not show.
BE CAREFUL. If you nick or slice the inside of the other inner side it will show up on UV light.
CUT CAREFULLY, it's a easy slice to your hand or fingers... Cut the ends smooth, UV shows all errors.
I cant afford clamps unless the cycle shop has some but that will top the method off.
This technique was shared with me by Otis Fratz, Big O' of Plum Crazy fame and a sharing pro.


BTW Yes I know WHITE UV would look better, but again tight budget and we make do.
This whole build and mod was making do with whatever is on hand or donated.
The project is nothing at all like the either plan or parts but I still love what we've done.
And here it is on and lit: (I will really try to get some clamps, alot of begging going on at the end).
I like how the MIA/POW is back lit too.

2000 grit rub last coat of paint. Enamel clear coat build and 2000 grit rub, another layer and 2000 grit rub.
AND NOW for something completely different or I've not seen yet in case modding.

CLAY BAR. This will give great results on a old case Powder coat or enameled but it even
does new paint proud. It's smoother grit then 2000 and i like what it does,
Cash-Is-Clay the head says you judge:
Before Clay:

After CLAY:

Follow the directions for your clay bar, this one is a few minutes in cold water then use like
Wet Grit paper rub.
AND it even glows better than poly did.

I know, I said the glow would be on the black edge too but the budget wasn't there.
Still it looks nice. Not like the Button Purple Heart Medal g/w/g/pp/g/w/g but it's OK.
I am happy with the results:


Even George is happy but he never shows it:

His panel is not cleared or glossy on purpose. Attempted to model the ribbon effect. A airbrush artist would do so much better.

I should show "The Pile" now that everything but the panel artwork and 24 pin is in:

The ECS Z77 should not be in there it was not a sponsor board.
We have: Phanteks fans, NZXT Fans, NZXT starter cables, Thermaltake Big Water 2.0 & Theron Mouse, Corsair HX1050,
Plextor 24x CD/CDVD writer, 16Gb Patriot Division 2 memory and Patriot Pyro 120GB SSD.

I will be unveiling the Wounded Warriors professionally done Art work by Ron Lee Chriatianson soon as it gets here and
installing the White and Purple 24 pin cable. I hope this happens Tuesday the 21st.

Panel is out for delivery. The XOXIDE BOTM is going so well last night I promoted all of the other contestants to my members and friends and voted for each of them. I'm not sure how to feel about the vote being as it is. Purple heart has 121 to the 2nd place runner having 18. I'm wrestling with not being sure I want to enter any more contest with PCS4VETS entries. Having such a cause might make things unfair? While it is the awareness want and this does that very well, is it fair?

I would welcome any thoughts on this from any and all of you.

Question: Should CAUSE MOD/BUILDs be in competition with the rest?

Not forgotten but very deserving.
