    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. :D

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



    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:

    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 :D But I didnt take pictures.

    Second step: I cutted some angle sections:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


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

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]




    After that, I began to cut out some plexiglass.

    After cutting it, I arrange the parts...

    [​IMG]

    ...and began to glue them together:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Some parts were bended by using a heat gun:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Adjusted, ground and mounted:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Continued the glueing:

    [​IMG]


    Now it looks like that:

    [​IMG]


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

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    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:

    [​IMG]


    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:

    [​IMG]


    Mounted on the case:

    [​IMG]


    Filed it :

    [​IMG]



    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:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Cutting this parts by using a scrollsaw:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


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

    Some other Hardware I am going to use:

    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 :hehe:

    Thx to all :D

    @ siliconfanatic: just the fins in the middle are for air intake


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

    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.

    [​IMG]

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

    [​IMG]


    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:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    The top cover is also cutted and glued::

    [​IMG]


    Startet to paint:

    Front is nearly done:
