    That sounds like a "different" idea. Maybe able to do it.. Lot of modding ahead for it.

    Now would it perform better even with dry ice/LN2 if I went and had it nickel plated first? That way I would not have the Alum and Copper mix........

    I think you are best served using it for it's intended function. Sorry to be so boring :p

    Been working on an external cooler and bent up some acrylic today using a neat device I got from US Plastics. It's a heating strip you just plug in and lay over the acrylic. It's about an inch wide and 24" long and gets hot enough to bend 1/4" acrylic in about 20 minutes.

    I experimented with trying to get a wide radius bend but it was not possible because the strip is so narrow. If I lay two of the heaters side by side I could probably get it to bend around a broomstick (I haveonly one). As it was it still came out pretty tasty.

    CD... That leaves me speechless like everything I see from you..

    Well, I'm going with the Pennacle 24 case from Mountain Mods. I've been talking with them the last few days, and so I got Ton of thoughts on what I can do.. Plus going to see about getting the window etched...

    I have a similar idea for my future watercooling setup (Building an external box for it), but there is no way I can make anything look as good.

    This is absolutely awesome.

    I made a pig's ear out of silk purse now didn't I?

    :p


    Just an insider comment on the affair: the powdercoat guys said the 320grit sanding marks showed right through the pink. It was not until the clear sparkle top coat that they were sure it would fly. They are pretty picky and probably would have had to redo it if the scratches showed. So if 320 grit scratches show through single layer gloss powdercoat what do you think 60 grit grinder swirls would do? It just shows that even someone with the talent and wherewithal to start a PC factory can still learn something...

    I never stopped my yearning for pink box...:p

    BTW I have enough material left over todo 2-3 PC cases. Or a chopper. Malibu Barbie Edition West Coast Chopper? I bet Mikey could do a fine job on that.
