I think you may have given me some major inspiration for some of the acrylic work i was planning for my build
better late than never as they say.
and thanks. I would love to see what you have in mind!
Sorry for the long wait everyone. Its been a VERY busy few weeks. After that incident with my truck getting a bit too friendly with a curb it turned out that I broke a couple other things in their than I thought and ended up needing to fix that stuff and it held me back a bit more than I was expecting. Then I just got extraordinarily busy with work for a couple weeks....
Again, I'm sorry for making you all wait so long..
I covered the side I decided to hack up with some tape to protect it as well as allow me to draw on it easier.
wasn't happy with the first set of lines... I think the three inch wall was far too small.
2 inches is far better.
and a whole to drop my jigsaw blade through
yea, I think that will work
all cleaned up
then I marked out the acrylic to make the window
and we have a window
and everything still fits
I used some 2 part epoxy I had on hand to bond the acrylic to the door. but it set up quite a bit quicker than I was expecting and I needed to rush to get it in place... I got it on but it was a lot more messy than I wanted
I think I should be able to clean it up a bit with some sort of solvent that I should have at work or in the hanger
BUT! it set up and it will work quite nicely if i can get it cleaned up
those cracks are just a reflection of things that are on the desk in front of the case or something. they aren't really there.
OH YEAH! Before I left work today I ordered a couple things from FrozenCPU too! Hopefully I should have a bit more to show in a few days. even if its just a box opening.
