Pic sans template. The screen is kinda weird, because the way it mounts there is a 3mm gap between the glass on the screen and the hole you cut. So, I need to get some clear acrylic (ordered) and cut a panel that makes it flush with the hole, then cut a bezel out of black that I can get perfectly straight edges on. It is not possible to cut perfect edges when the cut out is "into" the material. You have to tilt the Dremel to get access. This will be resolved with a small bezel.

Adding the clear layer will also strengthen the part and stop it sagging.





When I bought my PA3 (a small computer that controls pumps, fans etc) I got a license for the software. I never did finish it (it would probably be a day's work to build my front end) but I will now. So as frivolous as it seems it will be incredibly handy.

Got some time off now to relax. Have ordered a few more bits for the build though.

I got two of these 60' as I know they will come in handy somewhere.



This will go from the board into the Hubby, I just need to pull the pins out.



Fan extenders.



And some paracord.



It may seem odd to have the one red USB cable, but I also have one red braided SATA cable (alchemy) so the odd tiny splash of red here and there should go well with the red WC fittings

Another order placed. This time I got three Alchemy SATA cables (as they are the only braided ones I know of) in black. I have one in red already, so it's going to be a very small splash of red.



Some RGB extension cables.



Bolts (6mm long M6)



M6 nuts



And an intake fan for the bottom chamber. I am going to have to move the Alienware daughter board because the nuts from the wheels will get in the way. I am putting the fan in there (it's 80mm) just to draw some air over the boards that will be in there.

The floor LCD is now finished, with a bezel.



It also has 3mm of clear plexi over it.

I had a bit of an engineering fail yesterday that bummed me out really bad. I spent ages drilling holes for the wheels and putting them in the only places I could, just for it to tip over when done there is nothing I can do to fix that, so I will need to make some feet.

Today I made the holes for the pump and countersunk them.



And then fitted the pump to where it will live.



Do note - I am going to fit the IO to the side of it, and put a plug in the top (maybe that pressure release valve, if it fits there.

Will be taking some time off now and will come back to it when I have rested.
