Aprire - Lian Li PC-7HX -- VOTING ONLINE-- final pics

Hey guys,
I want to enter the Lian Li Contest so I bought an Lian Li PC-7HX.
There is just one Problem, there are still 9 days left.

This is what I've done so far.
I think this weekend will be very hard.



I'd rather let the pictures tell, so let me just say that the theme of the mod is Lamborghini. I really like these cars and I let myself inspired by especially the Lamborghini Aventado and Reventon.

Here some pics of the original case:










The finish is actually to nice to destroy, but who cares? :eleph:






Big thanks to my girlfriend and a friend of mine which helped out some times working on the case.


Now I'm very proud to name the sponsors of this project:

:














:






:

Caseking supports this project with some nice stuff from Bitfenix.









Thanks a lot



I hope you have fun while reading this worklog and I'm happy for every feedback


__________________________________________________ ________________________________________________

Now lets start with the first real update about what I did so far!
At first I disambled all the stuff I didn't need, that was a lot But I didnt take pictures.

Second step: I cutted some angle sections:






These parts were mounted on top of the case. But why? :P








After that, I began to cut out some plexiglass.
















After cutting it, I arrange the parts...



...and began to glue them together:






Some parts were bended by using a heat gun:






Adjusted, ground and mounted:








Continued the glueing:




Now it looks like that:




The top of the case must be adjusted to fit the All in One Watercooler from Enermax:







Now it's time for the highlight of this mod.
What would a Lamborghini mod would be without some gull-wing doors?
I will use some gas springs which are normally used for furniture.



The bracket on the sidepanel:




At the end some pics of the working sidepanels:








I hope you like it.

question: will the left side-panel end up becoming a functional scoop? blowing more air into the case?

At the weekend I started with the front. First I cutted some plexiglas and aluminium bars and screwed it together:




Mounted on the case:




Filed it :





Didn't take a lot of pictures these days, but it was every time the same kind of work: cutting, glueing and filing the plexiglass.

I continued with the front:






Cutting this parts by using a scrollsaw:






Started to grind the front and mounted it on the rest of the case:












Some other Hardware I am going to use:



I love this card




Still a lot of work to do...

Thanks a lot.

Update time

The front is nearly done.

Tomorrow I won't go to university... deadline is comming :shocked:



At first I want to mount the fan controller inside but I didn't quite know how. So i decided to mount it at a "standard" place.
I don't like to see it all the time so I need a cover. I used some tiny magnets to hold it. Works great.

This is how it looks at the moment:








Hope you like it, see you tomorrow

Lookin good! and im guessing that only the smaller scoops/intakes will be functional from all that bondo. or is your psu not balls enough to power enough fans to sound like the actual car

I have no idea what you two are talking about, I'm no native speaker as you can see on my posts But it sounds like you like it

Here the Update:
Actually I wanted to be done by now but filling and grinding is such a time waster...


Nothing exciting to see, just some small blocks of plexiglass. They will hold the fins on the front.



First coat of primer, just to see where I need to fill again:




Yesterday I broke some parts...
So I needed to fix that. That was really discouraging, but now its done


Bended the mesh for the front:






The top cover is also cutted and glued::




Startet to paint:






Front is nearly done:
