To paint or not to paint.... looks nice like that. Let it be man, just let it be. Black an aluminium kinda go well together. But now I cant sand my side and top panels. Don't want to copy. DAMN YOU SPLINTY :twisted:

I DID MORE SANDING :D

and my arm is very tired.

today i did the top panel, it was harder than the first side because of the holes in it. They kept tearing the sandpaper.

most of this was done without a sanding block so my fingers hurt too :cry:

however the result is well worth it. ill stop talking now and show you the pics.

























heh, couldnt help it.

Sand man..... Did you sand the fan grills also? Looks like that, might just be youg camera doing tricks on me. Have you thought about painting the grills gold? That could give a nice look against the sanded surface, maybe.

i bought the grilles like that, they have a chrome finish. im not going to paint them gold because it would have too much *bling* and im not looking for bling.

I think i have carpal tunnel :cry: i sanded for almost 5.5 hours today. this side was the hardest because of all the sharp edges. i even chenged the design of the window a little, cause the old design would have torn the sandpaper to shreds and i wouldnt have been able to do anything. anyway heres the pix.

the new window design looks kinda like a side profile of a robotic head, but i like it. i also think this thing needs a new name. Suggestions?

whats left.
sand bottom panel.
redo cdrom brushing.
light top window.
cd-rom window.

and when i get money: adding casters. (wheels :lol: )

That thing looks a lot better, but you need some silver/chrome accents on the black, its way to much contrast. Plus...some black on the sanded part?
