I did draw up some designs for new air intakes then got them laser cut. I had to cut some of the front case for them to fit. These are removable not sure if I am going to leave them clear or paint them.

Hey Guy's

Had a busy day today.
 
I have drilled all of the rivets out of the case and added all of the perplex. I have also got a few more parts for the build. I have started to mark out the holes and cut outs for the motherboard tray and I have added one of the reservoir.
