    The radiator will dictate a good-amount of the design, but--No.. Have not even contemplated a design/pattern for the side panels..

    The coffin cut is really interesting, can you do a little shot to show us the coffin and the red plexy with some lled ? I'm so curious... The rad have a tellay tight fit, have you planned this so little amount of free space? I'm so curious to see your solution for the rad, every time you post I learn something... Bye, and keep on modding without rush!

    PSU backing plate:

    Here's this weeks update. I decided to change the PSU's mounting plate.
    [​IMG]
    more of the same ACRyan sheet-mesh. Also picked up a fist full of Dremel stuff
    [​IMG]
    including there 115 high speed cutter
    [​IMG]
    listed for use on wood, plastics and soft metal. It works very-well !! A must have IMHO.
    The PSU backing plate for this case measures 185mmX220mm. It is also a cover for the two rear-facing AC Aquatubes above the power supply.
    Let's cut:
    [​IMG]
    then dremel-out the PSU hole as well as mounting bolt holes:
    [​IMG]
    mounting hardware:
    [​IMG]
    stainless bolts and chrome countersunk washers. They add a nice detail to the bolts:
    [​IMG]
    and for the power supply, a spike:
    [​IMG]
    more biker-stuff. Headbolt cover held in place by a set-screw.
    Some adhesive and a 1/4" nut:
    [​IMG]
    and we are all-set. The spike with it's cut down bolt and nut screws into the nut on the fan. Nice and EZ. Nexxo did something similar on his project a few years back. Different spike, but same idea. I liked that look and used it as well.. Thanks Nexxo!

    That is as far as I got. The backing plate still needs mounting holes to bolt to the case and there will be a chrome detail piece for the area above the PSU:

    A bike license plate cover, it's the perfect size!
    Thats it until next time.

    Sick. Love the early morning update just as I was getting bored! A lot of the motorcycle parts seem like they're made for computer modding. The license plate holder is an especially nice find.

    That PSU spike looks awfully dangerous - I know I'd end up impaling myself on something sticking out of my computer like that :worried:

    And, of course, some more solid work on BR. I know I haven't been commenting too much recently, but I always check in for updates. Always amazing attention to detail with your work - those little countersunk things for the PSU screws is a great touch. Are you considering switching out those hex-heads for some chromed ones in future?

    Very nice MS, very nice indeed. That cutter for the dremel looks interesting as well. As usual, I'm very much looking forward to the next update.

    The psu spike is the kind of detail that turn a mod work to a GOOD mod work. you're one one of my favourite source of ideas :-] I love the licence plate, sometimes I'll try to find something similar here in Italy ...
    Perfect work as usual, keep on MS!
