Here are the internal chassis pieces with a couple coats of self-etching primer.
I really did not want to drill on the case at all, but mounting the pump in a manner that I felt was secure required that I do just that. Soâ€¦ 2 holes it is.
Okayâ€¦.I really can not go any further without explaining my self and my reasoning to yaâ€™ll. The naming of this mod is derived from its main characteristics.
Liquid â€“ pretty straight forward.
Chameleon â€“ because it changes color.
The effect is not as dramatic as I initially hoped for, it is more subtle. This is probably due to the lack of surface area for the entire effect to take from. I used Chrome Illusion paint. This paint the changes color depending upon which angle the field is observed from. There is a high probability that most of you have seen this on automobiles either in person, or in a magazine. The right combination of colors can make quite a striking visual impactâ€¦ unfortunately for me the morphing is subtle and discreet as the colors are very close together in the color spectrum. I used Blueberry, Black, and Deep blue as the combination.
Here are some shots. Please excuse the dust and wax; I have not put the final coat on yet.The Panels:â€¦and some more of the topside:
I will try to make a video to post at the conclusion of this project to show the effect. I can say from seeing pictures and the actual pieces that some of the luster and transformation are lost in the translation to still life.
All the colors that you have seen are inherent in all the piecesâ€¦. It just depends from what angle and side that the observer is looking from. For the most part the case looks High-gloss Black with a hint of Blueberry.
As I stand back and ponder the outcome, I find that I rather like the more subtle change in the colorationâ€¦ or perhaps I am merely settling into a rut of lowered expectationsâ€¦
â€¦nahâ€¦ Sheâ€™s SEXAH!
