    The Coolermaster's V8 logo was GONE IN 60 SECONDS!

    The center portion was replaced Round Modders Mesh

    1/8 thick acrylic riser

    manifold air intake hose made from plastic wire loom, heated and bent

    roughly 3/16" tall manifolds made from modeling clay

    Next up, making 12, intake pipes!

    My "worm chorus line" is starting to morph in to intake pipes. The next step is applying more clay to join them to the manifolds. From there, acrylic primer, then a coat of silver "manifold" colored paint, then off to mnpctech's master painter, Brad Galvin to have intricate details like the Ferrari text on the red covers painted.

    The pipes will be smoothed over with another application of clay.

    A little more sanding, and it's ready for paint details :thumb:

    Hand painting the intakes has commenced. Using custom vinyl film stencil made on plotter for "Ferrari"

    I wonder if Coolermaster would recognize it?
