    Thanks mate, quite a bit for a tiny bit but it's worth it.

    Cheers mate.

    Fixing that 3mm panel so it aligned properly for the marble power button was difficult, the difficult part of it was getting the template stuck in the precise needed spot.

















    Anyway any other inset pieces don't need such strict alignment thank goodness so everything from here should be a bit more straight forward.

    Thank you jdbnsn, accidental artist, never originally set out to find myself on a road to trying to do stuff like this.
    The reason of the high detail is I just wanted a case that would make me not believe I actually made it every time I see it lol, think I'm on track still.

    Got some prepping done for cutting the 4 HTPC side contrast panels & made a little start on them, once they are cut & cleaned up they are ready to mount, I also worked the fixing of the layers before cutting them because I really wouldn't fancy trying to drill these frail panels once they are cut, then have 6 smaller 3mm detail inset panels to make.


    Drilled access holes on both ends so I can work it better, kinda like a beat'em'up game where your used to playing on 1 particular side, can do both but seem to find it more familiar once you get used to following the cut line, the countersunk mounting holes in the corners didn't quite align properly to the panel I tapped so countersunk a little further so it gives a touch of wiggle room to align properly.




    Probably the most boring update of the log but I'm just posting this now so it is known progress is still rolling but I had a couple days off due to lacking energy & focus so been recovering, very important to do that when not feeling on form else I'd screw something up.

    I intend to get back into it now that I just have a big cutting session ahead I need to focus on, no idea how long these will take but they are only 1mm thick & cut easy but I do need to be careful to not mangle them up, that's the difficult part.

    And today I'm 12,775 days old.

    No, it's all epic.

    Waynio, when you described this as 'alien,' I think that's just it. It reminds me of what I might see on a UFO post abduction. It scares my subconscious.

    Also, happy belated b-day. Keep up the lunacy.
    I'll procrastinate tomorrow.

    Cheers Stonerboy779 sorry for being out of it since my birthday, I got plastered & I some how woke up in Hawaii & looked like there was a beach party been going on so had to find my way home by sneaking onto aeroplanes & going to random countries until things looked familiar & then a long walk home.

    Cheers mDust will do mate.

    Previously on Waynio has an update to show...

    It was a boring update.



    Now...





    Yes, another boring update, 1 down 3 to go of these.

    But...

    reikmaharg2 on bit-tech creator of Silent fibreglass PC & Blue Horizon offered help on making a super duper light mod called the Spindicator & made the complicated part for me.


    I've got my soldering kit & LED's ordered & should have them soon.

    Here is a video of it in action.

    There must be a market for this type of stuff even if it was just modders, hopefully someone would step up to do cool bits like that & keep it so they can be used anyway the modder sees fit.

    Got the secondary layer cut & fixed the 2 together to the 3mm panel with washers inbetween them, here is a bunch of pics of it because I won't post any more updates until the other side is done.

    Enjoy the wavy line trippage. (been told they make peoples eyes go funny )

    I seem to be making nice progress again.

    Got the last 2 of 4 internal dual layer panels cut & cleaned overnight, they just need sanding to remove any scratches, I'm happy with them.

















    Wonder if I can keep this up every day, hope so.
