    Nice fans.

    Oh, and speaking about fan(s), I'm now hooked on Ken Block. Gymkhana 4 is cool, but I actually prefer Gymkhana 3. AND I consider convincing the wifey that we should buy a Fiesta ;D

    Day 25: 2011-09-12 / Task: Dust-filter and the renewd skull-43 logo
    Today I did the front 12cm fan's dustfilter. First I cutted thin wooden sticks then glued them together to create a frame fits to the case. Next I sanded to very smooth them and painted black.
    This frame was wrapped with a spongy dust filter material. I has different thickness so I choose the thinnest, the 2mm.
    I used two-sided self adhesive tape and pins to the wrapping. The corners sewed together.

    The case is almost done.. Need to fire up the lighting and need some fine tunes. I see some of yours and others modblogs that you or they are supported by famous brands.
    I don't know how it works (sponsorhip). They contact me? BTW I sent some letters with a link to my modblog to some pc part brands because I don't have the required parts to fill up the case with parts that fits to the design. :(




    I successfully reached to be supported by the hungarian DREMEL and got some help from the developer and publisher of the Dirt3 Game. Its the Codemasters! :)

    I am very grateful and thankful for them!

    Yup thats right. "Hey here is my mod. I would like you to sponsor me with this. I'll post my worklog here, here and here and I'll have your logo at the top of the worklog." Offer to do a review on sites that allow it too. Obv be diplomatic about it but thats the idea.
