    Very impressive it really shows you don't need a garage with tons of tools to turn out quality work! Great job keep up the work!

    I gotta agree with douglatins it's the best part to me as well, but since your going WC it makes little difference. :roll:

    Sponsor Update: EKWB

    [​IMG]

    This week I received a very nice package with even beautifull products in from EKWB

    The package (always nice to receive packages)

    [​IMG]

    Containing a fine collection of WC stuff

    [​IMG]

    First a nice Coolstream360 radiator.
    EK-CoolStream RAD XT (360)

    [​IMG]

    3x EK-FC480 GTX Backplate Black

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    2x EK DCC Top with 140 reservoir
    EK-DCC X-RES 140

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The last Block for the GTX480
    EK-FC480 GTX

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Placed the DCC tops on the MCP355

    [​IMG]

    Instead of 140mm reservoirs I’m gonna useEK-Multioption RES X2 - 250 Basic

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Like this

    [​IMG]

    The GPUs will be connected to the front res, need to adjusting the black acrylic to get a straight line to the inlet of the reservoir

    [​IMG]

    The outlet of the pump is going down through the midplate to a draining point, and so on to the radiators

    [​IMG]

    I also have placed the back plates and installed the last block on the GPU's. Always looks nice

    [​IMG]

    And placed everything

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    EKWB thank you for making this update / build possible
     
    PopcornMachine and [H]@RD5TUFF say thanks.

    Sponsor Update: Mnpctech

    [​IMG]

    This week was a special week, received the package from Bill from Mnpctech
    With a an important part for the TJ11.

    3M Di-Noc CARBON FIBER FILM

    [​IMG]

    The package

    [​IMG]

    To begin I’ll need to cover the air intakes from the sidepanel. Dont want these to be seeing.

    [​IMG]

    So cut a strip of 1mm aluminium

    [​IMG]

    And put thin double sided tape on it

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After this I’ve cut two pices of 2 mm aluminium, exact the size of the slots

    [​IMG]

    3M Scotch Clear Mounting Tape #4010

    [​IMG]

    Used the tape of the gods to put these pieces on the strips and also to increasing the pieces

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Put them in

    [​IMG]

    After this I want it all to become flat without cracks, so I did use some silicone sealant

    [​IMG]

    Next measering and cutout, what did I use:

    -3M Di-Noc CARBON FIBER FILM
    -X-acto knife with sharp blade
    -Cutting surface
    -Heat gun/ Hair dryer (heat gun is to hot so take distance with this)
    -About 60 minutes of time

    Measured the sidepanel

    [​IMG]

    Cut it out and left about one inch on all sides.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here we go………….. I’ve cut about 5 inch of the paper off and past the first half,

    [​IMG]

    After this the other half
    Make sure the sidepanel is clean and free of any grease or dirt.
    Align the vinyl with the case, remove the backing and then place it on as smoothly as you can. I used a credit card to smooth any bubbles out
    For the round edges I’ve used my heat gun. Turn the heat gun on and proceed to slowly and evenly heat the vinyl, whilst doing so, smooth it outwards with your thumb and down around all the edges.

    [​IMG]

    Take your x-acto knife and use the lines as your guide. Go slowly and make sure of where you’re cutting before you cut, hopefully preventing any miscuts or scratches to the side panel.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And one side panel finished

    [​IMG]

    Also did the other panel with the slots for de aquaero displays

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Cut out the window, displays and the fanholes

    [​IMG]

    And the front of the TJ. Again cut a piece larger then the front

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Paste it

    [​IMG]

    Just a little heat

    [​IMG]

    And cut it out

    [​IMG]

    Also did the radiator bracket

    [​IMG]

    Everything placed back

    [​IMG]

    And installed it in the TJ

    [​IMG]

    So did a lot of pasting this week. Here some pics how this is becoming a real carbon TJ
    Left side

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And the vertical lines from the TJ and from the carbon

    [​IMG]

    Other side, the most important side

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Some detail shots

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Update

    Great news......did almost all the sleeving, a hell of a job. Only a few more sata and usb

    [​IMG]

    And I was busy with the loop in the lower section. used the Y fitting for draining and to the rad

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Almost finished with the BP links

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Maybe you've noticed but almost all the red on the motherboard is gone......pci-e, red button and the red sata. Did this with black film

    [​IMG]

    Next step is to make a slot in the tray for some cables like the power led, switch, usb and other stuff
    So time for Dremel action

    [​IMG]

    And finished

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Placed the hardware back

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Not finished yet, I mis the yellow line

    [​IMG]

    So I've cut a piece of the yellow acryl

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Again used some black film

    [​IMG]

    Paste it and cut out the lines

    [​IMG]

    And placed it on the tray

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Still waiting for the last fittings, hopefully next week and then.....................fill up the TJ ;)
