Project: RAD GT -- Custom Acrylic Case Worklog

Recommended Posts

still looking dame good radodrill dude, but where's the hardware ;) ?

 

Patience my friend; It looks like a lot of the hardware will have to be sponsored by my wallet and I'm still waiting to see how things pan out with coolermaster before ordering.

I'm planning on having the case and hardware wrapped up by the end of the upcoming weekend; finishing up the baseboard may take a little longer though.

The case looks good, but your place looks like a bomb hit it :D

 

Are you taking multiple shots for each photo? A lot of the ones you posted are out of focus, hope you got better ones.

For some reason most people in my family just put their junk somewhere where there's space. If my mom or I clean stuff up; it's not long before it's messed up. That's one reason why I have my own tools. I also have my own workbench; but not long ago my dad "cleaned up" the other one and just dumped everything on mine (and then cluttered the other one up again).

 

The camera is a Sony DSC-F828; but I'm not always the best at holding it still. I'll certainly use a tripod for the final gallery.
