The build is looking great! I looked at all of the videos you posted on the thread.
I'd hate to see all the stuff the mill spat out chewing on that 2" plastic :haha:

LOOKS amazing but why would ruin the ice sculpture like theme by painting the acrylic silver? man I would love to own a PC in a case out of frosted acrylic that looks like something out of the winter sculpting championships!

Clear cases were cool 10 years ago :biggrin:

Here is photos of the custom acrylic reservoir made by cheapskate, this will be mounted on the back of the tower.
