  1. Thanks Icelander. Was just on your R5 build thread, looking good!
  2. Love the r5 mod! all the acrylic panels make the case look really clean. Great case to work in
  3. Try holding the can a little closer, In my experience with plasti-dip it needs to be closer than regular spraypaint. Also, what has worked for me is to dip my finger in paint thinner and smooth out the dip. The paint thinner re-liquefies the plasti-dip enough to smooth out with your finger, but too much and it will start to run off. You just want enough lubrication for your finger to slide along the surface. If all else fails, you can always peel it and start over
  4. Thanks Bill! Just getting the feel for the site, but will do. Haha! That would be a mod for for the ages. Who is going to do it? I named it "defector" because I was planning to try to get an apple os on a separate drive, but since then the spare drive has become a place to store games, and the name stuck. I might still tinker around with the hackintosh idea later Since making that video, I have been looking into getting a scroll saw, specifically the Dremel version, but I will check out the tile saws as well. Thanks for the tips!
