    Blowhole fan is utilized as exhaust, not intake. The Spinner wouldn't rotate mounted on back of fan. Bottom of ring is recessed for circular piece of mesh.

    Button Head Machine screws from mcmaster.com

    The rings are my design and made by my machinst. The design is not for resale. Although this may change in future months with a slightly different version.

    Spinner is available through ProlineRacing

    I gotta ask this as I am having a tough time figuring out how I will put a blow hole in my case for my radiator. I'm also trying to find some low-profile molding to mount it, but so far the smallest I have found is 1/4". It seems to me that everyone just uses edge molding and then attaches the mesh to their fans or case some other way.

    Another Blowhole for Harley Davidson 100th Anniversary Rig

    I envisioned a blowhole evocative of a carb or gas cap assembly.


    CNC Machined aluminum ring
    Fan mounting grommets
    U-Channel molding
    CNC machined aluminum 80 to 92mm adapter
    Perforated stainless steel
    80mm Coolermaster RED LED



    [​IMG]
    The "HD" was to be placed in center of mesh. I decided it was too much.


    [​IMG]
    If you were lucky, you got to purchase one of the 50 cnc machined 80 -92mm adapters I made last year. Modder friends got freebies ^_^ Too bad I never engraved anything on them.

    92mm hole punched w/ Greenlee Dye Cutter. Roper Whitney hand punch for mounting holes.

    I love the HD case, and have been watching it since you first posted pics of it.
    It would have been nice to have seen it completed last year though.

    You don't have holes in the case for the allen head screws that are visible on the outter ring...so are they only for looks, or do they go though the case. Perhaps only 4 of them are real screws, for mounting the fan and all the others are fake?

    I think it's kind of gaudy... but then, I'm somewhat of a minimalist.

    Agree. Other things just had more priority.

    4 mounted through case. Other 4, screwed into ring.

    Logo panel was finished yesterday
