    The Camaro build

    Hi Defyant, we had a lot of fun together making this one, we have made two more together since but ive yet to get around to uploading the video's There is another build log of our Blade Runner mod in some other forums too however:) We did the buttons in red! He has since wanted a parts upgrade so hes decided to make one buy himself this time, think hes making a small black and white cube case. Peter
  2. Leak test and system check before last details and some dye to the loop. Still quite a bit of rusting effects to add to the raining "too new" looking sections.
  3. Armour added still a lot more rusting and degrading to do but heading there at last, son is free tomorrow for the afternoon after football so hoping to get the soft tubes added and a test fill.
  4. Had some time between pumpkins and kids football this weekend to get some modding done. I set off doing the last of the cables 24 pin.. saving the most tedious for last! Dylan got to work rusting up the case, he did two shades of rusting to give it a weathered look. Now its dry I think it perhaps needs some chipping and some more shadow with some washed out black. He loved the rusting up watching him I think you could spend literally hours lost doing that.
  5. A test fit of the PCIE cable just to check lengths, finishing the motherboard armour today and we are nearly ready to add water.
  6. Case and parts are nearing completion now just need to add in the tubing. We have decided to drop the hard tube and go back retro with soft tube. It is more in keeping with the "less than perfect future in which the bladerunner world is set and also matches the curves of the wiring.
  7. Friday night mod for the boy after his first week back at school. Did the LCD backplate for the GPU on the current mod, should look quite slick when running. Did a chrome finish on the existing Saphire Backplate then set in the LCD its a 800x480 so displays a nice image for its small 5" size. This should display the "in film adverts in Blade Runner well for the mod, as well as CAM etc when the pc is actually in use.
  8. Well been a week or so since we posted any updates, things have been changing behind the scenes with two offers of sponsorship for the build so the hope of finishing this with the boy in the holiday is on hold while we wait for some new parts to come. The motherboard armour is something that wont change however so we have set to work planning and crafting. The cables will all screw into the housings after they are drilled into the acrylic plate. on the under side of the armour i'm using a rubber sealant just to make sure non of the fittings can come into contact with the board.
  9. After a LOT of trials getting the chrome look as close as possible I think we are getting there. Really hard work getting chrome to look okay out of a can, a warning to anyone trying it do not use a clear coat on top or it will dull the finish badly.
  10. Important lessons learned today (always a school day modding) Dont use clear coat on top of a chrome effect. As you can see the rad does not have a clear coat sprayed on and looks much more chrome the fans on the other hand had 3 coats of primer two of chrome. We then added one clear coat on top and as you can see it has dulled it to a flat silver at best. The clear coat does create a nice gloss but not the desired effect for this mod. Back to sanding and starting again..
  11. Dylan stripped down the Corsair AF120's and prepped them for painting. I made him watch Bill Owens tutorial vid on the 120's on youtube first, what a great vid simple and accurate so good a 10 year old could do it Dylan then gave the fans 3 coats of primer. Time for a bit of streetfighter 2 while we wait for the primer to harden before two coats of chrome and 2 coats of clear coat.
  12. My son came back yesterday from his trip away so we got 3 coats of primer on the rad. Today the new trailer for the film came out so got excited again and did two coats of chrome, fans to strip down next and chrome up!
  13. Was tempted to make a start on the case today but my son and I do the modding together and it would not be fair while hes away so minor task instead. Took apart the ram sticks and gave the heatspreaders a good scuff and tack to give the primer coat some grip. Two coats of primer then a wait for 6 hours and two coats of Chrome.
  14. Did the cable sleeving today, short vlog update pics to follow!
