It will be just nickel plated like many other WC blocks.
Temperature difference is negligible
Received a very nice package this weekend from Ivo.
Sorry for the amount of pictures, didn't know which ones to delete : )
Everything is clickable to 2560 pixels.
Somehow I didn't dare to unpack : P
And actually stared at it for half an hour before doing anything : )
As you can see there isn't much left from the 10.6 kg.
The copper part weight is now exactly 1.8kg.
I really think I'm going to nickel plate it.
Copper part is already oxidizing after a few weeks.
But what a job Ivo did ... (And Daniel off course in front!)
POM next to it.
And the 'screwless' backplate.
Just had to put it together fast : )
Original red aluminum parts on it.
First time testing the M3 holes with stainless steel I ordered at Highflow
Hmmm nickelplate it?
Think I'm going to polish the POM.
For a next time. : )
Ok .... it just screamed to be polished : D
Love Coca Cola.
Is it the weight of the whole thing too heavy ? Will there be any brackets to help hold it in place ?
