    so there's a tuning competition which starts 24th april==>I have to :dremel: very Extensively :D
    It's an AT Tower (pentium2 233MHz) which i will use as a backup data center with 5 hdd for the moment

    First I recovered the tower with polished aluminium (thickness=0.5mm)

    What is that PVC looking connecter going to be used for and will you be painting it any particular color?

    It's looking pretty slick for an old rig like that.

    Nope. There were no pictures for him. "All red x's" <> no pictures, just red x icons. Maybe part-time crash of your web-space... dunno.

    i'm agree with you.i called this mod in relation to oldness of the hardware and and the futurist design.==>an old harware/ a futurist backup==>come back to the future==>backup to the future
    and i choose delorean because i love that name :)
    but it's true that it was more apropriate to give to this mod more delorean elements
    so the main reason fot this calling is the opposition beetween the hardware and the futurist design
    but i'll try to give it more choerence with the famous car of the movie :thumb:

    yeah, I got excited when I saw DeLorean, but dissapointed when I saw it was just a title. It has inspired me to make a DeLorean case though!... just have to find time :duh:

    If i''ve the time, i would like make a delorean case but the competition is next sunday and i know its existence since last friday! :duh:
    ==>10 days to mod a delorean case is very short and it was the most evoluted mod i have.
    I am working on an other mod (which contains my full cooling) but i've much works on it again ..so i only can presents my backup data center :worried:
    so in the future i'll try to make a real delorean case==>Delorean 2 =>the come back :D

    nice start on the plexi work, its hard to drill holes in perfect spacing, looks like you did well.

    sometimes i use Word to mock up hole placement and tape it to the plexi and drill the marked spots out. works well for thing hard to arrange just right.

    ah ok, thanks for clearing that up :)
    a guy i know is making a delorean mod with linear actuators to open the side pannels like doors and was expecting simmilar.

    u could give ur case the weird back to the future engine bits they have on the delorean, that could be cool :)
