I didn't really take many worklog pics, but here's the few that I did remember to take. I always start out with the intention to take loads of pics and then just forget.

The walls are actually just acrylic coated mdf. I couldn't get any foam thick enough and didn't really want to 'layer' the walls with thinner sections.

Also, im going to start selling cases if anyones interested.

ORIGINALLY THE GDROM CASE WAS BLACK..........IT DIDN'T DO IT FOR ME!

ALSO, here is a taster of my next project, almost done. Just need to iron out a few issues(or bang my head on the wall a bit more). Enjoy..

Very slick. I love your case designs!

I watched your Youtube video, and this mysterious pile of bricks appeared under my chair...

That is truly an awesome portable. I love the case. I like it better than a certain other DCp finished recently.
Can't wait to see the new WVI. :P

Always nice to make hack a day. Although I don't see why there's any need for all the 'one is better than the other' type of stuff. They're all unique and thats what makes this hobby so great. No two are ever the same and they're all great in their own individual way.

On another note, whatever happened to bacteria, didn't he used to frequent these forums?
