Thank you for tuning in and commenting!

I made the canister's window today. Using a heat gun to bend the Lexan.


Forming the arc in window by pressing heated piece on the Aluminum rod. It's HOT!

4" UV cold cathode.




UV looks Blue in the photos


The window will be painted to look murky, like the original canister




The canister will be painted tommorow

The Prawn canister can't remain Silver. I prepped the aluminum surface with medium grit sandpaper, applied Black SEM self etching primer, then headed over to Brad's so he could apply the Pewter base color coat. Brad did all of the Prawn canister graphics by applying vinyl film and cutting the designs free hand with an Exacto, he used the movie still for reference. Look Ma, No vinyl film plotter or software!





Prawn canister window was tinted like original

Looks amazing, I wish I had a 1/10th of that kind of talent.

Thanks dragon!

Heres the photos of the socket head bolts, 1/4" socket head screws, these are fastened into the side panels









While at the shop last night I cut some 1/8" thick mirrored acrylic sheets to encase the 5.25 bay around the canister location.



I used the Scotch 4010 Heavy Duty Tape to adhere onto the mirrored acrylic
