I figured after 6 more months of this thing sitting around patiently waiting for me to finish it the time had come. Well, here is what the inside ended up looking like with no power or fluid yet:
So I had that stained glass idea for the side panel in the last post I made. Well I found some awesome glass to use. A 2' x 2' piece for $60 and I was all set to go...until I finally decided to finish the rig. I went into my pit of a work room, decided to straighten up first, saw a set of shelves I could use so instead started on that. Well, the niche behind the door (where the glass was kept safe) seemed like a great spot so I moved everything, including the glass. Shelves were too wide so I planned on another spot and started moving things on the floor out of the way with my foot. Item 1 moved item 2 which moved item 3 which found my glass propped up without support on both sides...timber! Smash!
The other half (thumbnail not working)
See that nice subtle ripple...it was perfect, just a little distortion just like a slight water ripple but clear and slight enough to allow full viewing...this sucks. The one shining light is that the hardware is so old that all this trouble isn't even worth it...wait, that isn't a good thing, is it?
