I'd bet. I wasn't too excited to install a UV light in my case, considering my sub-par cable tidy skills. tongue.gif

Thanks Uv light always has a blue or purple hue to me not a big deal if those colors are in your theme but if your going for pure white light or red like I am It disrupts the theme the eltape glows very bright and hooked to a controller will flash strobe etc



I will say however it is not the easiest mod to perform getting the wire out from under the sleeving without being seen or creating a bulge in the water line is tricky

check my build log or pm me if you need help

Looks like some great builds and mods everyone. It's exciting to see some new faces in the MOTM. Hopefully my Dark Side build will be done for the next amature MOTM. Good luck everyone.

Love the build " goldeneye" the clean simple look. Now don't get me wrong there was no simple with building it I'm sure. But the finish product makes it look that way. Making this look easy Grimm

I'm relatively new to OCN and haven't been involved in a MotM thread before, so I was looking into the rules. I'm sure this has been asked/answered before, but is there a specific reason the Amateur class gets the least amount of money? I would think that Pro and especially sponsored shouldn't necessarily need the money as much considering they are either Pro (paid do this sort of work is how I assume this is classed) or the build is partly/fully paid by some 3rd party entity.

IMHO amateur builds, such as these represented (and there are some great ones for sure), have usually sacrificed their own unpaid time and own monies to build/mod their respective setup. It would be great if that person got the most reward, given where this is all coming from. Understood, of course, if the rewards are coming from sponsors specifically, and there is no way around that. smile.gif

Anyway, thought I'd give my 2 cents. Apologies if this has been posed before, and feel free to refer to me as a n00b that clearly should research more on the site before posting. biggrin.gif
