yea its pretty neat. it sounds AWESOME when the Corvair (yes the air cooled 100 horse power engines that Chevy used in the 40s and 60s) under the cowell is running (ill look for a video)


came out of one of those
turns out when you spin them 180* they make really grate airplane engines.

for the most part at the moment its more in the way than any thing though

but on another note!

my project was nominated for MOD OF THE MONTH!. if you like my work or even if you dont you should go vote for the rig you think is deserving of being called the March MOTM!

THANKS for the nomination Repo_Man!

lunch time update!
i have the bezel with me here at work today and i managed to grab a can of body filler to do some work on it with . im going to fill the groves on the sides of the front face with the body filler so i can paint it with out having to worry about over spray fanning out in the slots.

and i just think it will look better.

on my way home tonight im gonna pick up some primer and paint and ill prime tomorrow at lunch

ill have a better update for you guys when i get home and can upload my pictures.


One last thing. go check out the mod of the month poll (link im my sig) you should vote for me because i love you all

i decided to paint the bezel after all but after talking to my resident paint expert i was told that it would be nearly impossible to paint it the edges the way i want to with out overspray or TONS of work masking. i thought that both of those sounded like a bad day so i decided instead to fill the channels and make both of the tasks at hand easy and hopefully look really neat too


last night before bed i took all the grills back out the bezel after my controller stealth project and then took it with me to work


that's one of the slots im going to fill.


i thought it was a cool picture, so i took it


weapon of choice. i would have preferred something a bit better but it was free so i cant complain. just enough left in the can for this project but not enough for any thing we do at work.


just slop it in and smush it around with the plastic thingy making sure you get as many of the bubbles out as you can.


all filled in. now i just need to wait for it to set. i decided to go easy on the hardener because i wanted some time to actually be able to work with it and make sure it was doing what i wanted it to. but i did use enough to make sure it hardened. i was kinda worried i didn't use enough.

it didn't set up enough for me to be comfortable enough to start cleaning it up at work so i threw it in the back of my car to deal with when i got home


one side mostly cleaned up


and the other.


i didn't do as well as i had hoped filling in the slots and i got some pitting and a couple little bubbles here and their but that's no big deal. i still have a little filler left at work so ill just fill them in tomorrow and sand again. then prime once or twice (depends on how it comes out) and then 3 or 4 coats of paint then taping and some more paint only in yellow this time


thanks for reading. be sure to go vote for mod of the month (link in my sig). i would love you forever if you vote for me but if you dont feel my project is up to par with one or more of the others vote for them.

feel free to comment make suggestions or ask questions! i like conversation.

Maybe use this for inspiration.. It came up while googling Reactors.



or you could make pillars on each side of the front bezel for effect.



or if you want to go completely insane then go to Lowes and go back to the tile section and glue some marble edging to the sides with carpenters glue.. that stuff will not let go once it sets.

or this


http://www.lowes.com/pd_260590-93840...roduct_price|1



http://www.lowes.com/pd_302802-93322...roduct_price|1


http://www.lowes.com/pd_42575-56687-...roduct_price|1

With this last one you can get a 12 inch long rail if you cut the backing for each 1 in line.
