Ok so a little "update" for ya'll. :D

I've been working for the past month and a half or so on a little side project, to support "The blank.box"...
Check it out:
http://theblankbox.net

It's just another place to log my progress, thought it'd be nice.
It's been a real fun time (ahaha.... i hate working with domains... xD) getting this website up and running, I made it from scratch. :)

But there ya have it, a little surprise. Be sure to add it in your bookmarks. ;) :D

Feedback on the site is greatly appreciated!
I've tested it with FF and Safari, both seem to work fine, if ya'll can let me know of any other browsers that work/don't work, any glitch's, that'd be great! :)

I hope you paint both of the cases to be the same color, but other than that you have a sweet project coming along!

Thanks Andy and ImmaPC!!

Ok another update!!!
2-4-09


Got to work monday night!!
Pics explain them selves basically, but I just took out a ton of rivets to take out the pieces of the case I will not be using, then cut the top of the second case for the radiator.


The case's ready to be de-riveted.


First case done.


Second case done.


Now for the top of the new case.


Cut out.


Methinks I done good! :D


Weapon of choice.
Also, see the dremel discs, I used the one on the Right for the ENTIRE cut, the one on the left is just showing the original size of the disc that I used.
These disc's are AMAZING!! I was cutting through steel.... took about 20 minutes..... the discs are a tad more expensive than regular disc's, but I HIGHLY recommend them. :up:


Holes drilled.


Can't forget my handy assistant! My little bro, Preston. :)


Alright! So the tops are done!


My mess, along with the ghetto table!


Just laid the grills on top to see how they look, I like em! Will do test fit with radiators in next update.


Time to head back inside...


Time for a nice root beer float. ;)
(btw, thats not photoshopped, safeway sells "Parker's Root Beer"!! It's great!! :D)

Till next time,
~Parker

I have always loved the look and style of BP fittings, and also the Quality that there made of.

Shipped all the way from Taipei, Taiwan, got it here in TWO days... amazing service.


Nice packaging.


Tons of fittings! I feel like a plumber. xD


That be:
26x BP-WTP-C01

Some sexy shots:




These fittings will definitely be put to good use! Thanks again Vincent and BitsPower!!

I think this is a great build.

Tho the one thing I think you need to do is cut the edges off the inner sides of the tops that top so you don't get that huge gap at the top.

It would sit flush to each other and it would be easy to blend in the small line to give it that finished look.
