the Illusion of Water in your Case
-- By: Fatboy
With so many case mods out there, window kits, neon
lights and the works there hasn't been any mod that has stuck out.
One of our visitors has submitted his guide to making his case have
the illusion of being submerged in water! Complete with
materials and steps, easy enough for a novice, challenging enough
for the intermediate case modder!
Here are the materials needed for this mod:
Two equally sized pieces of glass, lexan, or
plexi-glass. Keep in mind that this material should be at least
1 inch larger in width and height than the finished hole in your
case will be and need not be excessively thick.
One tube of plumbers goop
Window screen framing, just be sure that it is
at least as long as the perimeter of one piece of glass. So for
a 12 inch by 24 inch piece of glass, you need 6 feet of framing
with no margin of error. I would recommend getting a little
extra just in case.
Window screen frame joints.
Something to cut the frame with. Tin snips, a
hack saw, or a dremel should do fine.
3 feet of ľ inch fish tank air tubing. You may
need more or less for your application. I would recommend
getting several feet then cutting it to length after it is
installed in the case.
A fish tank air pump. It really doesnít need
to be too powerful.
Drill with a ľ inch bit
A small nail for puncturing the air tube.
A black marker.
A ton of PATIENCE.
A touch of INSANITY.
An UNDERSTANDING SPOUSE
