A picture can say a thousand words, but not sure it can cover all the frustration (cursing) from 200h of failed prints, but I have one more item to manage on my plan for this entire mod. The crown piece to earn the name of the mod – Unhidden | Tribute. But I was determined
Learn by doing… Third time is a charm, atlest for me adding this matte vinyl to the top. I got big mod left for the front, so I want two tone. The sides are left original to pay my tribute to the exterior as well. This will be a BIG challenge… Dual pumps and loops

Ever since the first Cosmos I have had a dream to own that case. When the C700P was released I knew I HAD to own it and mod it. Making it extra special for me to enter the CMWS19, both on the 10th anniversary, but also with this amazing tower. The idea of the mod
