Okay here are some pics....sheeze

The first is of the scratch in the one panel, it blurry but you can see the scratch. The other is the mesh I will be using to line the inside of the case. I am still trying to decide what color (if any) to paint the mesh.

small update. UPS has my new sheet of acrylic out for delivery so I will be getting busy a day sooner than I thought Because I need to spray the color coats on the corner pieces tonight as well, I doubt any pics will be uploaded tonight.

I thought I was meant to be the one who asked for pictures MOAR!

Here's a link to the first picture which doesn't seem to be showing for me:

How did it scratch? Could you try and get it replaced and claim it came like that?

For the mesh, how about a really vibrant colour to stand it out? I found using a really vibrant green for the grill worked well on SFF (to be renamed soon) so how about a bright red?

No dice on return the acrylic as I bought a single 36" x 48" sheet which has already been cut up. Meh, I just order a new sheet to remake the 2 pieces. It is fairly cheap from McMaster, so I just wont get Starbucks for a week and it will all even out

I have been thinking of painting the mesh with Red Duplicolor Metalcast. I will probably paint a small piece and see how it looks through the acrylic.

Sounds good *If* (hopefully when) I do my next project I think I'm going to be using impactive mesh to liven it up...it does look sweet

Put it on the inside That's what I did with SFF - don't forget the edges, and you can't really see them when their inside. Also, how you going to securing it on the outside - glue is nasty and often not transparent...

I always find I have plenty of ideas but no way to put them into practice

Progress!

I got the new back and side panel cut, all the mounting holes drilled and 4 sides of the cube assembled. Only one, count them one hole is not lining up. The primer is not adhering very well to the corner pieces which is a bit worry some. I will swing buy the hardware store and pick up some more and really sand them down and try again. I'll use the current set as working pieces. I am either going to have to glue the sides or find some kind of bracket to using in the middle of each side. Oh well plenty of time to figure that out and its not a show stopper.

I am getting a bit paranoid about cutting out the space for the radiator on front. I am probably going to spend all night tomorrow getting my guide lines perfect!

Here are a couple snaps to keep the pic mongers pleased
