    Two holes at each end for rounded ends then cut along each side with a jig saw or Dremel.

    Coarse files then fine files & or Dremel grinding & or sand paper attachments. :thumbup:

    Or get it laser cut, just make sure you tell me where you got it done! :D

    Update

    Pics of the workshop just so you have an idea of what sort of machines are there

    I realise its mostly woodwork tools as I didnt bother going into the metalwork one, (I only needed a jigsaw/drillpress both of which were in the woodwork room)

    Before/after pics
    Ended up drilling 2*12mm holes and cutting it out using a jigsaw
    Marking it up using pencil :lol:

    After pics (in a different room as I forgot to take pics straight after)

    Wow, that's a huge distance! I think you mean 40km?

    Liking what you've done so far. I think it would have been easier to cut through the bit that stands up, mine is like that (2nd hand, came like that), makes it easier to route the cables as you don't have to thread them ;)

    Thanks
    I meant 40m as in minutes

    You mean like converge's ex TJ07?
    Thread them? You mean like put them through that hole? Idm at all, and it provides for a neater look

    Oh right :lol: that works out about the same I think (avg. speed of 60km/h = 1km/minute so 40km = 40minutes :p)


    Yeah true. Although you're not going to be seeing it all that often :lol:

    Nicely done mate, wish mine had turned out that nicely. :thumbup:

    Never mind the extra length you'll appreciate it when passing sleeved cables through there. :)

    Ha thanks, it was my very first attempt at using power tools & modding ever. :)

    The powder coating should hide the scrapes & scratches where I didn't tape. :thumbup:

    Nice one, water cooling is a process of education & self discovery.. Enter ones own consciousness and journey within.... then without... then cut some shapes into metal....


    Ohmmmmm :leet:
