    I've been working on some finish and paint on this thing. I got the new panels finished using the same color as the last one but with an extra coat for a little more shine. After buffing it with 0000 steel wool I got a very nice satin look.

    Also been doing some rust painting again. Remember these?



    Now they look much better.





    Can you believe I DID that?? The motherboard tray and expansion slot covers are done also, and the optical drive box I built is almost done. That is turning out very well.

    Wow, nice rust!

    ...ok, that just sounds weird...

    Are you going to be aging the wood any?

    LOL.. I should follow this thing more closely. I saw your post from May about the jewel light, and I instantly thought, "That looks like the one on a vintage fender amp!"

    Then CJ beat me to it.. also in May.

    Yeah, yeah, I know. I've been busy. Hope to have some more pics of the newly-aged components up soon. Next will be the angle iron I made for the corners and then to age and dress up my H50 cooler.

    No, I don't think so. There are a couple of chips in the veneer, and with that, the old controls gauges and gears on the outside and the rusted angle iron all the way around it I think it will look perfect as is.

    I seem to remember you mentioning something about a Jacobs Ladder to me once. Well if the High Voltage is too much, this might be the perfect solution. http://hackaday.com/2010/12/12/jacob...using-el-wire/

    Now that is exceedingly cool. +rep for the find, thanks!

    I'm also seriously digging whatever that light is to the left of his Jacob's ladder in the video, you have any idea what that's called?

    As much as it saddens me to say it, as of today this project is offically dead.

    Countless hours and many dollars went into this project, but I enjoyed it and learned a lot from it. And that's really what modding is all about for me.

    Hopefully someday you will come across some other derivation of the theme from me on these pages, as I do love the way it was going, but I promise you I won't subject you to Clockwork vIII.
