    And I could want the last extreme Li :] I'm so gonna have my eye on this one, the last one was just superb.

    Always a shame to see such a nice piece of casemodding being ripped apart, but lets hope the new one will be still cooler!

    I find reinventing things is fun :)

    Looks like this will be as killer as the first, good work so far.

    Good to see you back at it Ediejo. You seem to work so fast that I hardly ever get the chance to comment on your threads. You should know though that I really like your work, it's really top notch and I don't wonder that you get all these sponsored goodies to play with :hehe:

    Keep up the amazing modding.

    @widmod, I rip the first extreme lian li because it’s too big for in the house. It was on many events so it’s an old one now. I only can transport it with the caddy or an other big car. And the case if heavy about 100 kilo including the transport box. So I need every time somebody to help me to lift it in the car.

    @Breach, I do my best. ;) And I try to put some more detail work in the case now.

    @darkened, yes I work fast that’s true only for this one I take my time. I hope I can make it better than the first one.

    @x06jsp, maybe I can give you some new inspiration. And thanks for the nice posting. ;)

    @rowin4kicks, you must wait my Canon 350D camera is broken. For the second time in one year. Now I have no camera for some weeks. :waah:

    Good luck with this, although I'm sure you don't need it. Your work is amazing.

    I font some time to work on the case again. ;)
    There is the possible to place two psu’s in this case. One at the bottom I and one in the top. I gone use the one in the top. So I start to make a whole new back. From Plexiglas and aluminum.

    First part is from paper.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    In the bottom part will come 2 x 80mm casefans.

    [​IMG]

    Making the First part from acrylic

    [​IMG]

    Some sanding work.

    [​IMG]

    Cut out the inner part.

    [​IMG]

    Also some sanding work.

    [​IMG]

    Last part by hand.

    [​IMG]

    That’s fit.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ready for polishing.
    See you soon.

    Continue with the backside from the case. I think the out take at the back make some noise with all the holes. So I take it out.

    [​IMG]

    Out is one part. To vile is the second part.

    [​IMG]

    It must be straight so I need a line to see how far I can go.

    [​IMG]

    And than sweating.

    [​IMG]

    First part ready.

    [​IMG]

    Next part the acrylic.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    That’s something to handle with care. I won’t broke the small part acrylic.

    [​IMG]

    See you soon. ;)

    Continue with the Plexiglas. Drawing the holes for the PSU.

    [​IMG]

    I saw it a little bigger than the aluminum. So the last part by hand and Dremel

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then polishing the edges.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Same story only this time aluminum.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I cut the part that I need with the dremel.

    [​IMG]

    The last part with the scroll-saw.

    [​IMG]

    Looks much better than with the slots upstairs the psu.

    [​IMG]

    It’s not 100% ready but it fit well. There is some work to do.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Sanding the aluminum.

    [​IMG]

    Also take of the anodized part from the aluminum.

    [​IMG]

    The First part what been polishing.

    [​IMG]

    After the polish pasta, I do the same with AlU belgom.

    [​IMG]

    @x06jsp, thanks.

    @razzta010, me to. But a lot of work to get all parts the same.

    I forgot to post a picture with some light behind it. Just for the idea. This are ccfl’s but I go for led’s.

    [​IMG]

    2 parts to go. One big part for the case and a part for the promo. ;)
