    Oh jeepers creepers, batman. You seem to have a neverending supply of HP cases, do you have a fetish of some kind? It's alright if you do. Personally, I'm a sucker for Antec cases. This case looks damn good so far. I foresee another amazing mod from you. I shall follow this one closely.

    A 4!!!!!!!!! looks like i'll have to pick my game up a bit :)


    With HPRES3 i'll also use a sidemounted res, but this time the area around the res will be raised in the same method as the front blowhole.

    I've cut some strip of plex these can be bent to shape for the edges.


    [​IMG]


    using a bit of heat the strips of plex bend to shap with little effort.


    [​IMG]


    not too hard.


    [​IMG]



    ive decided to "groove" tenches around the walls, this will give a lower area for the bondo to bite down and sand back level.


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    a qik re-sand on the groved areas


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    same with the back


    [​IMG]



    next is to sit the side walls back in and use some hot glue to hold it all in place.


    [​IMG]


    Next is a qik "fitup" test, i a big fan of the fitup test :)


    [​IMG]



    all fits good :)

    looks good defyant!!! i like the fact your side panels are made out of plastic, makes moulding/modding them a bit easier!

    take care man, and mod on!

    tbh the angled side reservoirs are starting to get a bit stale, but it looks quite cool none the less. :)

    Thanx guys :) cheers Rayegn and Shplade :rock:

    the long story is! the large external RES has become a bit of a signature now,

    I was going to mount it "UPTOP" this time but also wanted an external mounted RAD as well :)

    The Rad was going to be too hard to mount on the side :( so again i chose the res.

    I am trying to spice it up a bit with the "rasied lip" trying to take the side mounted thing a bit further and hoping it will pay off.


    You wer'nt being lazy Roto :) i appreciate your honesty :thumb:


    A few more piccys this time the top panel.

    this shows where i want to go with the top.



    First off was to ditch the orig idea of a top vent and remove a whole section where the sides will be added.

    The idea is a for a BIXIII to fit up here or at least a BIXII


    [​IMG]


    Next with the left over plastic from the side panel was to make some raised edges for what will become a MEGA SUCKHOLE. :D

    Some bondo action

    Another qik look to see how it looks.

    Back for more bondo :)
