    THIS IS FANTASTIC! I've been gone for a month, and I come back to see all this ingenious engineering on your thread. Bravo! Gonna have to steal some of these ideas

    How much were those acrylic panels? I love the sliding door idea. How did you fix the guides to the front of your rack?

    Hey. Acryic panels are from lowes (18x24") and are about 8 bucks each. The guides are about 6 bucks and they are 6' or so. The guides come with an adhesive layer. but i also used tape (attached from inside the guide to the shelf itself). I also did the same to the top shelf and will post pictures next week.

    gill_za, it looks like a fume hood, and I want it!

    Very nice work indeed! You and TheFury are definitely pushing the bar higher in the ways of set-ups.

    A little update:

    The weather stripping as it turned out is just not good for supporting the cord guides and acrylic panels. It is too soft and the adhesive is too weak. After about two weeks the weather stripping started to slide down and almost fell off.

    Instead I have cut out a strip of the reflective panel and glued it to the shelf using industrial adhesive "Liquid nails" . After the adhesive solidified the cord guides were also glued to the strip (remaining adhesive on the cord guides was also removed).

    Side


    Front


    It works much better than weather stripping.
    Fans off and Humidifier on.



    Additionally, I have used Velcro squares and attached Reflective bubble strips to keep the light in.




    Finally, fans were rewired. I have soldered pieces of the sparkler sticks like so



    The red tape is just to keep the wires together. The wires are connected in parallel to the adapter from router. It runs the fans at half the speed and can supply enough current for 6 80mm fans.
