VLOG Episode 1:
Due to everything being cut down, i will only do 2 episodes.
Second episode will cover a full timelapse of the hardline watercooling AND a timelapse of plating the fittings.
Will include other mods.

Today, i've almost finished the shroud, need to let the glues fully dry before i continue with it.
Need to fill some gaps and then seal the pyrite nuggets into the shroud.

Fred as always helping out.




And a video here, showing you exactly how it was done


here's another video of the paint effect up close

Minor update today

Using 24ct gold leaf, i covered the front logo to make it stand out more.
It's a little rough due to the gold leafbeing incredibly difficult to work with on an embossed logo.
Will be much easier for sponsor logo's later.

Thank you


Watercooling is finally in the UK, got an actual date now, (Monday)
So i thought i'd share some pictures of the painting at it's white coat (before the gold was added)
and some other pictures of the finished stuff in a more accurate lighting.







And these with some sunlight and a white flash




off to enjoy ''For Honor'' for the weekend, will check back on monday with some updates and some watercooling

Updates!!

i've begun work on the parts i want gold that cannot be gold plated.

So first things first, i stripped down the CPU block


I then prepped the block with a white coat before going over with gold. This was to allow the gold to be lighter.



i then went ahead with the gold on the block head


Once dried, it cleaned up really nice




i kind of liked the stands in white, so i've kept them white, will need another white coat later tonight, but not rushed




I also done the reservoir top and bottom using the same technique.


Radiators are up next, but will need to do this another night.
So far i'm impressing myself with this.

Clear silicon mold will be made for the ''ACOOL'' logo on the CPU block to allow it to really brighten up.
