    So guys time to post the next update!!
    As you saw in the first update/post I showed you a piece of clear 2cm acrylic that I am going to
    use for the main chassis as corners and also as supporters for the aluminum construction.
    I cut 20 pieces as they are going to be 4 corners 10cm each.

    I had to face some problems though. The laser machine didnt cut the pieces right, so when the people in the acrylic shop tried to remove them from the main piece, they broke most of them.
    Also they were cut pretty unshaped so my files and sanding skills had to take action.

    Here are glued with acrylic cement glue.





    The filing and sanding took me 10 hours in total as I had to fix the broken pieces also with isopon and titanium wait for them to dry sand again and repeat the process till I had the perfect shape. Unnecessary trouble but hey, we are modders we have to fix things that are broken!





    Filing each side and then sand them with 150 grit sandpaper. One more problem I faced was that my mouse sander broke during the work and I bought a new Bosch one.







    Isopon and titanium for maximum durability even though isopon was more than enough, my
    perfection madness told me to use titanium too.





    Finished shots for now. More to follow soon hopefully!





    Next job was to sand the reservoir stand pieces and prepare them for assembly.



    The pieces glued together with plastic welding glue. I also cut the 5mm acrylic rods that I am going to attach on the stand for... aesthetic reasons mostly!





    Here it is fully assembled. As you might notice the edge of the acrylic isnt smooth due to the !#!@!%$ lasers machine bad functioning. So I will have to sand it and smooth it isnt it????



    After 2 and a half hours I finished sanding the edges!! The inside of the circles its not though as it holds the reservoir pretty tight and I didnt want to mess with that. Here is the final piece.



    Thats it for now guys thanks for reading my worklog. More to follow, hopefully soon as I need the hardware and aluminum pieces in order to continue!!

    You could just flame polish the edges. It's a little tricky but it works awesome.

    I didnt want to polish them as I am about to paint this part! Also polishing without getting that surface even and smooth would look pro. The laser machine vibrates a lot so the cut isnt clear and straight. Made in China FTL.
