"The Hive" Corsair 650D with a little case modding( Couldnt help myself and started again lol) - Page 3

post #21 of 64
I'm working on an acrylic 100 gallon aquarium with scratches in it and have been researching and practicing acrylic repair for a little while now. Let me tell you, it is a nightmare. In my case, a new tank will run over 1000.00, in yours...either deal with the scratches or buy a new piece. The procedure involves sanding the plastic down lower than the scratch (I usually start with a 600 grit for this) and progressively moving from 600 grit to a 1000, 1500, 2000, all the way up to a 14,000 grit sandpaper and then buffing with an acrylic polish. It IS possible. But it's not worth it here. Abandon repair and buy a new piece dude, trust me.

Now the questions is, leave it black with the red wires coming thru or paint it red with black wires going thru

to get th scratches out, get a blow torch, and lightly heat the scratches making sure you keep the flame moving. They should come out no problem

I've heard this, have you personally made this method work? I have been so far unsucessful with this, ended up putting a little burn on the plastic, didn't like it.

Small update... My gpu stand arrived and is installed



Still have to drill a hole and run the wires under neath from the stand. Will do that this weekend

I have another piece made for the drive bay to go on the side, but need to get by the vinyl shop and have some designs made before i install it

Love the gpu stand! It's just like I imagined. It looks like a spinal cord, with all the nerves inside biggrin.gif

Oh man, loving this build. I might do something similar this summer with my 800d if I can get a few miscellaneous parts, but your build, Sexy drool.gif

Can I bother you for a parts list? I see you've got a 570 from the backplate.
