Ok, I left the glue to harden over night and did a quick test fit this morning..

Perfect fit.. :clap:



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

Than a second coat and some weathering..




A quick test fit for color matching..








Remember this..?




It now looks like this.. ;)




...and this..




Final results.. Hope you guys like it.. :)

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..

Today I refitted the bottom rad and got the cabling done. Next step is to get the copper pipe measured, cut, bent and fitted...

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..

Got another mysterious box in the post today..




All the way from Minneapolis .. a place called Mnpctech... ;)




Looks like a laser cut replacement window for the Corsair Vengeance C70 case!!!!!!!








Complete with replacement grommets..




Definitely impressed by the quality of the acrylic! The holes are perfectly aligned and the finish is flawless!

Also included was a few modding "extras" ;)














I want to give a massive thanks to Bill Owen at Mnpctech for supplying this project with this lovely replacement window and also for such an awesome guy.. ;)

Tiny little update for today..

Replaced the standard side window with the one from Bill at mnpctech and started on the plumbing..

Took about 5 minutes to swap and looks outstanding..






First few bends..








....and all the mishaps :(
