looks good so far, get some details on the carbon fibre bits though.
Hi Moddingboy! So this is the mod you mentioned at CM chat? Nice work, It looks cool, I can't wait to see it finished.
Love the logo, hate the taste of the drink. Nice cuts, def gonna be good!
MrP - I was thinking about the 3M Di-Noc Carbon (Black) vinyl but it's more expensive than the printed one and that was out of stock at my 'dealer'.
outsider - Yes I mentioned this mod.
Day 16: 2011-08-04 / Task: Installing switches
The big red one for the power, the little red for the reastart. One toggle for the interior lighting and one for the monster logo. The green LED is for the power, the red is for the HDD.
Day 17: 2011-08-06 / Task: Monster fan grill
The day whaen I made a Monster fangrill for the rear 90mm fan. The designed shape was cutted out from vinyl and I stich it to a 1mm aluminium piece. Few raw cutting then hours of filing. ~9 hours of work.
The grill will be painted to glossy black and It will get a green vinyl to the center.

Day 18: 2011-08-11 / Task: HDD cooling
As you can see more of the half part of the bottom of the HDD is covered (what a long sentence). There is air what isn't moving at all and it makes the HDD hot. I thought about cutting a hole to the metal covering but after made it the result wasn't as nice as I waited. Something was missing..
Good for me because I didn't throw away the stock grille from the front. I cutted a piece of this grille and I put to the cutted out ventillation hole. On the pictures you see I had to use some rubber wedge-thing for the mounting.
The final result is nice and the temperature of the HDD is lower now. I hope you like it.
Very nice modding Moddingboy & I loved the video at the begining .

Waynio - Thank you for the support! I am very appreciated.
Day 19: 2011-08-12 / Task: Installing fan holder
Today I installed the holder for the 120mm fan. I fixed with poprivets and then filled with putty from the inside. I hope it will looks like an original 12cm fan mount when the paintjob is done. Sadly when I worked with putty there appears some holes.. I drilled them to larger diameter and then putty them out.
The chassis is done! Tomorrow I'll go to the painter and we breath life and brings colors to the Gymkhana Mod!
Subbed.. for those nice cuts.. and monstah +rep
