    Hey guys ,Nice to get back into this mod.


    while i was waiting for some parts to arrive for H-1 i'd get a bit of work done on hpr3.


    As much as i liked the first fan box, it was drifting away from the internal theme i was going for.


    I decided to make the Fan box again!and this time keep it plex rather than bondoing over it.

    I decided to rout the edges this time and also do the inner circles.

    Because the PLEX is soo thick this time "10mm" i had to countersink the screw holes.

    Wouldn't that have been a problem for the airflow? At least the air has loads of space to circulate through...
