I guess I'm too crude for the forums now :P

Here I'll give you my vanilla, watered down.. not really true to my personality response: "Those fan grills are really nice"

My System Specs


fan grills are wicked the black is down right great, but I too am not a big fan of the white i see why bill did it. just not my cup of tea is all. still waiting to see the whole thing together i have a feeling that teh white only looks that predominate from the pics cause all you see is the panel not the whole case. jmo.
and thank again bill for giving us the time and effort all your cases are a works of art. oh and thanks for all the vids teaching me how to paint cases.

We're gonna experiment tonight with some different vinyl films for the logo. First we'll try the Gun Metal Carbon Fiber to create the dark grey "HARDWARE" text

Carbon Fiber Sheets

Do you know the brand of this stuff? I know 3m makes a great one but its really $$$

Oh and great song in that video

It's like 90 percent of the cases with windows they all have silver colored rivets or screws.

It's mind boggling to me that people here still find a reason to complain when there is maybe 2 people on this entire forum that have the resources and tools to even BUILD something like this on their own. I don't know bill from a hole in the ground but some of your posts are not only childish but unthoughtful. It's his time and his money... remember that.

Oh! Keep up the great work Bill I really like how its turning out.
You got it wrong. It was a SUGGESTION....not a complaint at all.

Thanks for staying tuned and posting your comments guys!

Ok, that first logo belonged on a WONDER Bread bag...Ick! We were about to redo it with carbon fiber film logo, but recalled we had bought frosted vinyl for another project window. This is the film resellers use for Window Appliques that look laser etched. Much better looking now

btw: All of the fasteners I've installed are stainless steel socket head screws.

Oh my that looks yummy. I personally love the white on the side panel. The people that don't must just not have any taste. Can't wait to win this thing in the next folding contest ;) haha...

Love it, but I thought you said that it was going to be the same as the HWC logo? Wouldnt that mean Grey AND red, not just mono-grey?
