Ok so while conducting my duties as a Soldier I have had a importunity to acquire some trashed and retired military equipment(legally don't worry) So this is what I have so far..... I have a J-Box(Junction Box) It looks like hell on the outside(currently working on that!) but the inside is immaculate clean and sexy! It used to be out fitted with several Fiber optic connectors, BNC connectors, and old parallel serial connectors! biggrin.gif I plan to make it waterproof! The overall concept is to have a Main Case(The J-Box) that will house the PSUs, Mobo, Drives, Water Pump, Controllers, HT Radios, and other equipment, while the exterior of the case will have industrial Heater Cores(RADs) mounted as well as a heat exchanger. Every component that gets hot is going to be Liquid Cooled!, the Ram, Mobo VRM SB NB and Cpu, the GPUs, even the two PSUs are water cooled! The Main Case will also have alot of water proof Cannon Plug connectors on the rear that will transfer the data signals(Sata, USB, eSATA, Firewire, Video, etc...), the video signals, and the AC and DC Voltage. This will allow just about any application to be developed for it later! I am also making a External Unit made out of a 2U Rack that will connect to the case and house a clone of all the connectors and controls that the main case has plus an audio amp! devil.gif

Basic Design:

As for the paint job, are you just going to go with Olive Drab? Or were you thinking one of the ACU camos?
I'm guessing you were using some epoxy to repair the dings in the pics?

Did 8 years active duty myself. Just got out this past Dec. I was in a signal unit in Germany. I like how you have to put down it isn't endorsed by the DoD. The only thing I have seen them actually endorse outside of themselves are air-soft guns.

Yea actually the enamel(Clear coat) fixes all the problems except where I had to remove stucco and concrete from the back edges because I took paint off in the process rolleyes.gif . Not sure if im going to keep the look, I dought it though because I was looking for a original but clean look. The whole problem with repairing the bare metal spots with olive green is it will not match because of the sun baked paint currently has a much different look. But its only a few small spots so it may not be noticeable if I use new paint.... thinking.gif Though you know how it is with military and the paint it being industrial grade it ages well and sticks well, thats why I dont want to fully repaint because the original paint is very strong and does not chip easy.....

And yea about the disclaimer(thanks for reading by the way lol) I defenately dont need to draw bad attention, especially when OPSEC is as high as it is now...... rolleyes.gif
