1 Step Forward, 2 Steps Back - 10/18/2010

This week was a rough week for the case. It started out good by printing out the graphics for the doors and obelisks for the metal etching. Then it went down hill from there. I stated transferring the toner to the metal, but messed up the first two. The last two I could fix, by using a Sharpe on the spots the toner flaked off. The two eagles are the door design. Then the Egyptian design is for the inner obelisk.







Then I started the etching process, and it didn't work. After thinking about it, I believe I left out the copper sulfate bath too long. Also, I could of hooked up the terminals wrong. After the last two weeks of hell with all the drug reactions, I wouldn't put it past myself that I hooked it up wrong. Anyways, her is the pic of the aftermath.



I took a break from the etching to focus on the veneer panels. I tried out the 'sand' paint on the panels and it looked horrible. I quickly removed the paint. All the flacks in the 'sand' paint hid all the stone details of the panel. I have pick out a new sandstone spray and then paint the stone joints by brush, which is going to take some time.

After those two disasters, I focused on just cutting out the panels for the Temple and base. Here are some pics.

Thanks. No worries, I will continue modding. I will pick myself back up and learn from my mistakes.

True, if you never risk anything, you will never move forward.

Thanks. I am doing pretty good on posting every week. Only missed one week, but that was the week when I had to go to the ER three times, so I am sure people will cut me some slack

I am getting close to finishing up the case part. Once I get the panels cut and painted, and the brass panels etched, should be done with the case. Then I will move to getting the computer and liquid cooling hooked up. I should be getting some new hardware early next week, so stay tuned in.

Medical Drama Continues - 10/31/2010

Sorry that I didn't post last week, but I got caught up in some more medical trouble. Basically my condition got worse and I had to take medical leave of absence from my job. I have some medical procedures that are coming up and I might have to get surgery. The doctors don't want me to work, however they want me to move around every day for at least an hour or two. I am going to use an hour of that to work on the case. The good thing is that I have short and long term disability insurance, so I am not worried.

Last week, I did have a chance to re-do some of the metal etching. I got three doors done. I would have got the fourth one, but the toner transfer didn't go to well. I have some black paint and will touch up some spots, but it looks good. Cannot wait to do the obelisks now.






I got all the pieces cut out for the base. I started spraying on the 'dirt' paint. I also got some of the Temple panels cut out too. I will have to hand paint the Temple panels.







I got my other liquid cooled PSU in and I had to take some pics. Oh yeah, 2,000W of liquid cooled power. Hopefully I am the first to have two liquid cooled PSUs in a case.





Happy Halloween!!!
