I'm kind of sleeping one off today so I'm probably not going to get into the shop. But I'll definitely have some stuff to show soon, as usual.

Nov. 4th Update

And here we are again. Have a little update tied on the string and ready for release into the sky.

Let's get to it.

I finally had some time to work on the chassis frame. Since I previously finished the modification the metal for install of the 200mm fan, it was basically just waiting for me to get it coated up with a lovely color. Well, that lovely color is...

Purple hammertone.





It came out a bit darker than I expected, but it's not bad. I'm happy with it.

I also needed to cut some spare sound-deadening material to isolate and seal in the fan, so I cut some and applied it around the front panel's fan spot.



Also, Bill's case feet looked awesome in black annodizing, but.... I couldn't let it go!





I needed to install them on the chassis itself, only I didn't want to use Bill's normal hardware that came with the feet. I needed something dark and non-descript. Sorry, dude.



So I used some M5 socket caps I had laying around, and they happened to be just the right length to mount them with the nut housed inside the case feet instead. Looks clean and nice!

In all seriousness, give it a bit. I'm not done yet.

Nov. 6th Update

Thank you kindly, gentlemen!

-------------------------------------------------------------

Update time!

I needed to post this last night, but I was too tired. I needed to get home in time for Fringe anyways.

Let's get to it, shall we?

I needed to begin work on the top panel modifications. My illustrations were done quite a while ago, I just hadn't had any time to really devote to it. Besides, I was busy working on other parts of the chassis, and as far as I know I cannot cut myself in half and grow another me like a Planarian flatworm. Trust me, I wish I could. Ask some of the ladies...

The work on the top panel is the traditional stuff I tend to perform, like adding fan ports and handles, etc. But I also wanted to add some top I/O ports for the ease of functionality and convenience. My brother tends to use those things, so I figured I'd accommodate him.

Since I tend to mod LiLi chassis on a weekly basis it seems and for the past few years, I tend to accrue parts that I usually don't use myself in a personal mod. The top I/O port connectors would be one of those parts.




I love to use them in modifications because they're easy to use and prepare for. I've done it so many times, that I have a template set up and saved for them that I always go back to in order to save time for other stuff.

Here's the top handles I'll be using. They probably look familiar, because I've used them plenty of times before. Just cheap metal drawer handles from the local hardware store. It's my last set of these so I figured I'd go ahead and use them up.



And here's a layout mock-up of the top panel...



And the work I will perform...



I marked out and drilled all the holes in the top panel as well as taping up the top side of the top panel as 'insurance' against possible marring errors or scratches. My drill-press can be temperamental anyways, so it's a good idea. Granted, I tend to skip this step though because I've cut a million panels. But it's a good idea for anyone to do this!

Clamped down and ready to go...



Blah blah blah...



And done.



I simply spray all the curly aluminum shavings/WD-40 mixture that makes me think of robotic wet pubic hair with water in my washout bin. You can easily just wipe it out with a paper towel, but I'm lazy in some aspects.

Now that the piece is dry, I need to go ahead and cut the I/O port's opening up top. I'm going to just use my rotary tool for this because it's fast, easy and doesn't have to be perfect.



After a couple mins., I have this. A little flap.



And cut!



A little trick I use to get to those "short" areas that a large cutting wheel can't reach; I tend to keep all the ready-to-toss-out cutting wheels that have almost nothing left on them. They're really small and easy to get at those areas.



And after some flat-file work, It's all done. Doesn't have to be perfect since it's getting covered up with some acrylic. Namely, a little jazzed-up piece that represents the dog-bone-shaped Satellite of Love on the show!
