Xj6 rebuild starts tomorrow

Work in progress? Car partially underway? If you want a spot to dedicate to the work this is where you'll want to go.

I use Maya with Renderman. I'm learning Zbrush.

I'm free today because I am sick and had to take off work. I might muster up the energy to lay down a few coats of fiberglass but I doubt it.

I ordered some UV blue cable sleeving, uv cable ties, and uv heatshrink. Also, two more uv lights to go in my pc, a uv blue power supply connector kit for my pc's new psu, and an extra sleeving kit. The UV led's in my fans for the pc case died but I like it this way because they are just clear fans now and I can sleep with the computer on. A switch is easy to wire for cold cathodes, but impossible to wire for LED fans. I'm about to bundle up and lay down a coat of resin tonight.

I just got finished laying down my first coat of fiberglass resin. I've always been wary of resin ever since my very first project. I screwed it up the first time by not adding enough MEPK or something. I hope it turns out well! Pics when it dries, my basement is all stinky so I turned on the industrial fan.

fiberglass project in a basement, sounds silly, but then again I've done them in the middle of the street because my mom got mad when she found drips all over the driveway

i've been known to leave puddles of it on my parent's driveway....and/or in their garage :) it's a good thing they are very understanding.

actually, our basement has a garage door and good ventilation. Or so i thought. The upstairs smells like fiberglass so I turned on the HUGE attic fan and now there is no more stinky. The resin dried okay. I'm going to do another coat tomorrow if I get a chance. Right now it's off to be with family. Merry Xmas!

I got the water cooling system filled up and running, the amps are about to get screwed in. I also bought some KNU Krystal Kable interconnects and a Konfused fused distrobution block, both of which I would HIGHLY reccommend. The quality is amazing. So I'm getting the amp rack all ready to go because I don't feel like fiberglass today.

I know it looks messy know, but I've not screwed anything down yet of course. And I also need to buy some of those cable tie holders, and finish wiring up. The blue plexi square in the bottom left is a resevoir that makes filling the system a little easier. I'll have to come up with a better way to fill and bleed if the need arises.

I'm almost done with the amp rack.:cwm21:

:cwm20::cwm17:the Kole is too close to the fans to wire! I need 90 degree fittings so that the art series won't take up so much room. With 90 degree fittings, I think I can free up about 5 inches or more in terms of space.
