Seriously, its been 8 months?! How do you do it?! You have the patience and dedication of an entire batallion of men! Take your time, and enjoy it. I think thats why us people do this computer stuff, we enjoy it... But too often we tend to slip over that blurry edge where enjoyment becomes no more than a job, and we lose sight of why we began what we did.
I hope you get your personal issues sorted out, I myself have been known to put my own life on the backburner for something much less important, and I will always regret those decisions, by far your personal life should be held above anything else in the world; because in the end that is what keeps us ticking. I also hope to see you finish the project, and that you get many years of enjoyment out of the finished product.

I'm also drooling at that picture! This build is just unbelievable. It's unbelievable for a lifetime modder and here it is as your first. When this is completed (or near enough), I'll definitely be linking MDPC. Your standards left mine in the dust a long time ago.

I'm hope to be making a simple aluminum tech station this summer... and I hope I can have half the quality you have here!
Thank you, Thomas. I really appreciate the kind words and of course your support in linking to MDPC.

There's still a long way to go, but I remain inspired by everyone's comments, including yours, and the fact that I've been able to create and then recreate many of the visions I had of what this build would be like before it began. There are some difficult things ahead that I haven't revealed to you all... things that will be very challenging and new, but if I can pull it off then I think you guys are really going to like it.

Yeah guys, it's been 8 months. I began planning refleXion way back in July of last year, actually. I began learning photography around that time and shortly after began a non-stop 3-week training with autocad so that I could map out my design with measurements so that I could fabricate it easier. It also made the side panel possible as there was no other way to cut out that complex design other than a CNC or a waterjet.

There have been few breaks since July of last year.. most recently being one of them. The fabrication side has taken a long time, I know. As I said, I had never even worked a dremel before this build began. Now I've delved into drill presses, jigsaws, table saws, routing tables, handheld routers and a few other toys that have, what I feel, allowed me to increase the quality of refleXion to a professional level. I still lack many of the basic shop skills. For example, I just taught myself how to drill/tap holes in acrylic within the past few weeks. This is a really simple (and necessary) skill that I simply had no idea how to do until recently. So it's just a lot of continuing learning, on-the-job training with this project.

But as I said -- great progress has been made, and eventually we will get there. refleXion still inspires me, and that's what's important. Because once you lose that, it's very difficult to get it back and continue on.

Take your time, that way you'll be happy, if ever you can, with the finish product. You're doing great and I just love to see those amazing photos. +rep to you and keep impressing.

I have followed this build ever since i heard about it and i must say this is one of the best I have ever seen. your attention to detail and dedication to your vision is truly remarkable. I think everyone feels that same sense of exhaustion when it comes to building anything from scratch. Things become very tedious and it can be very hard to look at a pile of parts and see the end product after working so long on something. Especially if you have to redo something because it didn't turn out right. though nothing is as satisfying as seeing the final product or even the beginning stages of it all coming together.

Take your time with this and make it exactly what you want it to be. I definitely have the patience for it. especially with something this grand and awe inspiring.

Also, to give people some perspective on time. Have you guys ever been to a car show and been wowed by someone's project cars? If you ask them how long it took them to build, they will probably tell you at least five to ten years if they did it themselves. There is a guy in my neighborhood who has a beautiful 1967 Camaro with a 454 and a Weiland roots style blower. It is an amazing work of automotive art. He started it when I was in the sixth grade and he just now finished it and i have been in college for two years.

Though i would wait years for this as well. sorry if i ranted a bit, but i hope people understood what i was saying. Anyways, keep up the good work and i look forward to future updates

Fine work takes time. Attention to detail takes dedication. Completing your vision takes patiences.

I'll be working on the build over the weekend, guys. Have set aside plenty of time for it. So an update should be forthcoming soon.

Xeb - don't have a coronary. The Xion will make it all better before long.

Thank you very much, bud. You did describe the experience pretty well.
