    Ok, I've had similar happen, and it happened a week and a half after I thought my paint job was done.

    As it was explained to me it has to do with the paint in the layers not being 100% vapoured off. What probably happened is that your lower layers continued to breathe vapour out through the clearcoat and not adhere to the base coats, thus achieving this cracked (albeit perfectly smooth) finish.

    In my case the guy I was making it for thought it was cool thus we kept it.

    Gonna be tight on finishing this up in time, but I just found out I will have an entire Saturday day and night this weekend to myself.

    The case work, PCB work and all other hardware related modifications are done, assembly is done, so essentially it's just an ass-load of wiring, so the progress over the next three days will determine if this get's done in time. Hoping for the best, though I feel the chance of even placing is slim-to-none to begin with. hehe.

    Only two of us have finished so far, so chances are pretty good for whoever else can finish in time ;)

    Where I live, Officially Summer ends early next month. But because of "Global Warming", having winter feel like summer and vice versa. I say we extend the competition and not let our summer dreams die just yet! Heh

    Not a bad idea. Given that there's usually at least a third of participants who don't manage to complete their entires within the time limit could there be a second date set as a "late delivery deadline" which gets it's own little event summary? If anything just to recognise work done and share the love a bit.

    Eh, not looking for a participation trophy honestly. Either this get's finished in time and I gave it a good shot, or it doesn't in which case I still gave it a good shot.

    That said though, this weekend might have breathed a bit of life into the hope I can get this done in time, with 6hrs put into it yesterday and 2hrs today.

    Everything is at least half wired up meaning all that's left is to make the final connection for all the leads. The tricky part is figuring out how the hell I'm gonna do that and cram these extra components into a case that was never designed for them.

    Again, gonna give it all I got to get this done, but if there's even one setback I'll be out.

    We'll see what happens in the coming days.
