Custom GPU shroud= YES!:D

Mad Max rehash= NO, just...no. I've had enough of Hollywood regurgitation. Here's an idea: Take ANY sci fi from the golden age of sci literature, adapt it to film, and don't use Cuise or Smith as the lead!!!!

Hahaha, hoping I can get her done soon.  Unfortunately it won't be for the "Dust-off" as much as I'd love it to be.  Plus I don't have a webcam, lol. 


Awesome.  So secretive this production.  I've heard good and bad things; just depends on who's being asked I guess.  Fans of the original seem to love it though.  Me, Mad Max all the way followed by Road Warrior.  Thunderdome is thunderpoop.


It's not a rehash Cheaps -- takes place in between Mad Max and Road Warrior....which is right where CLUNK is too on the timeline.  Imagine that!

Mini-Update!  Only two pics -- sorry gentlemen.  ;)


Alright, I'm running out of time here.  I have a hard assembly date of next weekend, finally.  Need this thing done and clunked!


On to the update.  I just couldn't figure out what I really wanted to do with the cabling coming off the PSU I worked so hard to destroy.  So...I decided just to shroud that sh*t too!  :lol:


Here's work-in-progress....




And I wanted something on the rear intake fan on the inside.  Seemed nekked, ya know?




Take that, Main Force!  "Maintain Right"...  bah!


I'll have more soon!

I guess it depends on where you are. I've seen a Pinto station wagon given this treatment. The further out in the sticks you go, the more biased the police get. They let borderline derelicts with expired tags go, but anything that implies a sense of humor, or looks like it's actively being restored gets stopped and worked over.

ahh, good to see the falcon will return.

“Mad Max is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa. This movie is an account of the Road War which follows. It is based on the Word Burgers of the History Men and eyewitness accounts of those who survived.” - Director, Miller

wonder if the "dog" will return too...

I always thought the setting for the story line was fiction, could be anywhere, and never mention taking place in Australia... but, yeah, why not cast Aborigines too, George? ......... However, they couldn't film all of Fury Road in Australia, due to the location and original town being flooded.. They had to relocate the shoot to Namibia, Africa .....so you could also ask George, "where the Namibia natives?"


Mad Max Wiki:

In November 2006, George Miller stated that he had intended to make Fury Road, and considered doing the film without Mel Gibson, saying, “There's a real hope. The last thing I wanted to do is another Mad Max, but this script came along, and I'm completely carried away with it."[5][6] The film's screenplay was co-written with cult British comic creator Brendan McCarthy, who also designed many of the new characters and vehicles.[7] Miller again confirmed his intention to make another Mad Max at the 2007 Aurora film maker initiative. However, he stated that he thought Mel Gibson would not be interested in the film because of his age.[8][9]


On March 5, 2009, it was announced that an R-rated 3D animated feature film was in pre-production and would be taking much of the plot from Fury Road,[10] although Mel Gibson would not be in the film and Miller was looking for a "different route", a "renaissance" of the franchise.[10] Miller cited the film Akira as an inspiration for what he wanted to do with the franchise.[10] George Miller was also developing an action-adventure tie-in video game based on the fourth film, along with God of War II video game designer Cory Barlog.[10] Both projects were expected to take 2 to 2½ years, according to Miller, with a release date of either 2011 or 2012.[10] The Fury Road film was going to be produced at Dr.D Studios, a digital art studios founded in 2008 by George Miller and Doug Mitchell.[10]


On May 18, 2009, it was reported that location scouting was underway for Mad Max 4.[11] After exploring the possibility of an animated 3D film, George Miller decided instead to shoot a 3D live action film, and at this point plans to make the film animated were immediately dropped, and by May 2009, location scouting for the Mad Max sequel had begun.[11] An Australian press said in May 2009: "MAD [sic]; Max is revving up for a long-awaited return to the big screen, almost 25 years after Tina Turner ran Mel Gibson out of Bartertown. Director George Miller is gearing up to shoot the fourth film in the ground-breaking Aussie road warrior franchise, industry sources say. Scouting for locations is under way for the movie, which many thought would never get off the ground. It could go into production later this year."[12]


In October 2009, Miller announced that that filming of Fury Road would commence at Broken Hill, New South Wales in early 2011, ending years of speculation.[13] This announcement attracted widespread media attention in Australia, with speculation at that time on whether Mel Gibson would return as Max.[14] That same month, British actor Tom Hardy was in negotiations to take the lead role of Max, while it was also announced that Charlize Theronwould also play a major role in the film.[15] In June 2010, Hardy announced on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross that he would play the title role in a new version of Mad Max.[16] In July 2010, Miller announced plans to shoot twoMad Max films back-to-back titled, Mad Max: Fury Road and Mad Max: Furiosa.[17] In November 2011, filming was moved from Broken Hill to Namibia, after unexpected heavy rains turned the desert there into a lush landscape of wildflowers, inappropriate for the look of the movie.[18]


Filming finally began in July 2012 in Namibia, more than eighteen months later.[19] The filming wrapped on December 17, 2012, over-budget and with studio Warner Bros. having sent out an executive to put things back on track.[20]


In February 2013, the Namibian Coast Conservation and Management group accused the producers of damaging parts of the Namib Desert, endangering a number of plant and animal species.[21][22] In September 2013, it was announced that the film would undergo reshoots in November 2013.[23] On November 20, 2013, it was announced that the film would be released on May 15, 2015.[24]

    There's a thing here. Somehow it moved to the top of the page, but I didn't do it. No, really! But still, Cheaps is likely to blame...
