Top notch clean cut work. Very excellent. I think it reflects on your Engineering background, attention to perfect detail. You dont know how I have waited and anticipated you posting those pictures. I have subscribed to this thread from the very beginning. I cant wait to see the final product, cheers to you man.:beer:beer:beer

Thanks!!! Yeah; I'm picky about details when it comes to this sort of stuff. I'll be ggetting some parts to make my own PWM fan controllers as well; I just hope I get my switches soon.

 

Now that the panels are cut out I'll be adding the rear IO, FPIO, Fill-ports, etc. Once everything is cut/drilled I'll round the outside coners and polish everything before final assembly.

 

I'm still waiting for responses regarding sponsors for the hardware; hopefully some will come through.

 

At least I took a class in Pro/E this summer; Sketchup seems to be primitive in comparison (never really tried it though).

Don't mean to be a dick, but I hate when people quote pics when it's not necessary.

 

LOL; I know what you mean, unnecessarily quoting pics just wasts thread space.
