Thank you absic! A friend referred me to Ensourced for custom paracord cable sleeving and extension cables. I'm really impressed with the quality and price. I thought I'd go with a color that accents the Stainless Tubing, so I bought these three variations of Grey.... Hmmm 



8 pin GPU Paracord individually sleeved cable in "Smoked Grey"



"Charcoal Grey" paracord



"Graphite Grey" paracord

Looking at the photos I guess the first one, smoked grey, looks the closest to the stainless tubing in colour.

But, for personal preference I like the last one, graphite grey, as it offers more of a contrast and I think highlights the tubing better.

Thank you!! Finally back from other commitments and got to fill the loop last night for leak testing. Only remaining items on to-do-list are connecting all of the cables, installing SSD and Operating System.

MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017!

....2016 was a crazy time for me. My personal stuff always gets shelved. Along with the AMD Radeon Tank, I had to finish this ROGUE ONE Corsair 600C for CES here, https://mnpctech.com/rogue-one-k-2so-toy-600c-corsair-gaming-pc.html

Thank you for kind words. Back at the workbench today, I created a PSU shroud for my Cooler Master Mastercase 5 build. It's made from 1/8" thick cast acrylic with embedded magnets I found on ebay, I drilled holes and glued on two legs with weld-on acrylic cement for easy on/off installation. Next step is painting the shroud gulf racing blue and draping over the orange stripe onto the shroud.

Sooo, Slow progress is better than no progress.. ha! Found time this week to get the Mastercase PSU shroud painted to match the chassis. Here is the plate with and without the gulk racing stripe and just after applying the gloss clear coat

EEL Ambiense & Noobas4rus got me really interested in customizing mech keyboards after we did this Keyboard Modding Hangout, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzcAUTH7vZE

EEL suggested a good mech KB that allowed custom keycaps for my Mastercase Racing 5 gaming PC setup, I've given my Qisan Magicforce "Blue ICE Crystal" 108-Key Mechanical Gaming Keyboard custom keycaps that compliment my GULF RACING Porsche 917 theme.

The Magicforce Mechanical keyboard utilizes GATERON black key switches. It's really nice deal for $69.99, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01HGDKJK4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1



EEL helped me with the layout for the gulf racing theme custom key cap order, $53.75 shipped from from WASD, http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/



Shift key was replaced with STICK SHIFT,
Escape = PIT
Backspace key = PADDOCK
Windows key = GULF OIL logo
Function key is number 5, for Mastercase 5 racing.

I've decided on the Cougar 700M Mouse. Designed for Cougar by CRE8 Design. I love the aluminum frame and height adjustable palm rest. I'm debating on color theme, maybe Blue with Orange highlights...

This project has lead to many new online friendships. I was invited by group a guys on FB who build Laser 917 kit cars on (VW powered chassis) One of them introduced me recently to Sandro Garbo, the artist and author of "Steve McQueen in Le Mans" a graphic novel inspired by the movie. http://mcqueenlemans.com/

LOVE this style of illustration, You can order it here, https://www.amazon.com/Steve-McQueen-Mans-Graphic-Illustrated/dp/3952470910/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1500039502&sr=8-1&keywords=steve+mcqueen+in+lemans+book
