Thanks ruffhi!

Time to swap out the "paint plugs", the stop plugs that came with the radiators. I'm replacing them with low profile Bitspower stop plugs, using this large flat tip socket. This will help prevent gouging up the slots by using a smaller tip.

I bought 30 something of these stop fittings, they all just came in one plastic bag. When I dumped them out is when I realized they had two different style brandings on them. I'll use the ones on the left where you can't see the logo.

I like to air pressure test each radiator as I go. Some of these plugs are not accessible after the radiators are installed.

Bottom radiators and fans installed.

One of the front radiators.

These grills screw on from this sides, so once the front radiators are installed, there's no removing these grills without pulling the "rad-packs" out!

Here's a close up trying to show the metal flake in the powder coating. Very hard to photograph!

Now I'll spin the case around with all the radiators and fans re-installed. The fan wiring is just hanging all over the place, that'll be one of the next things to tackle.

Here's the hard disk drive mount with a 120mm fan mounted.

Couple of shots with the outer panels on.

Coming up next is fan wiring and reservoir mounting.
