    Perfect fit.. :clap:

    Thinking I should widen the the two "damaged" parts on the case opening side to join them together..

    Looking very good so far. Almost too realistic. Was worried your PSU had corroded.

    Hi guys, sorry for the lack in updates, I have been ill the last few days and pretty much spent the majority of them in bed! Feeling better today and done some adjustments to the radiators and also painted the fan controller..

    Thought I would do a quick assemble to see were everything's at...

    Thanks for the comments guys..

    That's excellent!! Saw the facebook feature, but didnt know about the blog.. :toast:

    ..............


    Still no further updates on the tubing as I am having a nightmare of a time with the copper pipe.. I am through all 3 meter of it with no usable pieces to show!

    I have ordered another lot of "easy flare" pipe which has a thinner wall, lets hope things go a tiny bit better..
