Finished the sanding earlier, it's really, really smooth. I uses a combo of 60 grit and 220 grit. I know a gental change would have been better but it turned out fine (and it was on hand). I would have done the first painting (techno green) today but never got to Lowe's to get the paint. Besides the weather turned bad anyways, tons of wind, serious chance of rain not good for painting at all. I did however find everything I needed at All Electronics Corp. Need to bug my dad about letting me place the order with a credit card. I also didn't stop at one green CCFT, I went for a couple 12" blue tubes with inverters and a blue tube like the green one I need for the hack (I'll either do a second laptop in blue or find another use for it.) IIRC it will be $40- $50 shipped but it's worth it, I wanted the blue tubes anyways to see about getting a basic case design for the Gibson style server. Tho' I might place an order for an orange tube as well. Some of my initial design ideas for the Phoenix included a light of some sort in the base of the system with it reflecting towards the MLB. There are simply a ton of diferent lighting concepts that play out on the Phoenix, many that can't even begin to be descriped or photographed. That reminds me, I need to pick up those photos I took.
