I got the window frame finished and polished up to the level that I was looking for. I seemed to have made this considerably more difficult than it should have been! When you don't have the proper tools for a given job it becomes much more time consuming.
Trying to get some of the deeper scratches out of the copper took a lot of work! You have to use a coarser grit cloth and when you think you have the bad stuff gone, you work to finer grits. But once it started to get smooth I still had to many unacceptable fine scratches. This caused me to repeat the cycle multiple times to get where I wanted to be.
I have some unique mesh that I intend to use around the drive bays and the mother board, along with some black Acrylic.
It is somewhat similar to the grill mesh in the 900D but just a little different. I have a plan for multiple layers with opposing colors, but I'll have to see how it looks. You know how it goes with the best laid plans of mice and men.
Sam Has been pushing me to make the main window emblem from copper like I did on the front one. I wanted to take the easy way out, But what fun would that be? If you want something special then you have to go that extra mile, so I'll give it a go. I have some other stuff to do first! I would really like to settle out the diamond plate so I can mount the front emblem and get this thing looking like it's supposed to look.
Still waiting for more parts from Corsair and EKWB and then I can start working on the inside also.
Thanks to everyone for following our build and for ssgtnubb for cracking the whip on me. I didn't know how it went around here and I won't bug you unless I have some progress to show! Glad to be here and thanks for the support.
