    offt: i'ts a beautiful car isn't it? have only seen one irl, ccx, one of the first years :)

    ont: You do have some welding skills, looks like tig if om not way off :) i've tried a little tig welding, lets just say it didn't really look that great :wallbash:

    Thank you. :D
    Hey k.3nny yes im here also. :D

    Thanks and no there is no flex or play in the hinge.

    Thanks and i will weigh it after a few updates again because im also wandering what the weight will be at the end of this project.

    offt : Sure it is a beautiful car and i never seen it irl.:waah:

    ont: Thanks and its TIG welding you were right about that. :D

    this hinge i designed for pull/turn and yes it would be nice if it was a press/open hinge.

    Now its time for some modding.First thing i did today was making a test for the mobo tray and see if my measurements were right.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It fits like a glove so now i can make a drawning for the lasercutter.

    Now its time to make the custom reservoir it will be placed behind the front so it dont have to be fancy but still i want it to be clean.First things first so i cut some aluminium and bend some corners.

    [​IMG]

    Drill and tap the holes for the fittings and the fillplug.

    [​IMG]

    Now its time to weld it together.

    My guess would the possibilty of galvanic corrosion as the Rad is copper. You can use additives to greatly reduce the effect, but generally speaking it's best to not mix metals in a loop as it stops any potential headaches down the line.

    Anodize inside the now closed res ? You'll need an endoscope to check.

    I only have one complaint!

    With welding skills like that, why the **** did you grind the welds down??? :(

    I love to see great welding in action! :thumb:

    Besides that, very cool mod! :)

    Thanks for the info k.3nny i looked it up and your right the only way to get the res oke is to anodize it.

    So there are 2 things i can do.Thats anodizing the res or make a new one from stainless steel.The last one im gonna do so i am making a new one from stainless steel.

    Smal update. - 26jun 2011 -

    After reading previous posts i drove early this morning to my work to replace the aluminium reservoir for a stainless steel one.I am already using stainless steel in my desk and i have no problems with corrosion.

    Lets make a new res.Its the same procedure as the aluminium one so this time only pictures.

    Not really a smart move to make a aluminium res before looking up if it was possible to use it with copper but im glad some ppl point it out to me so thank you for the info people. :D

    More to come.

    Thanks for the compliment but i had to grind the welds down because it fits with the rest.If i was using an industrial look then you were right about your complaint. :D

    Thanks for the info, one more question, not just for me but for anyone else's benefit who may read this... theoretically a copper res would be fine, right?

    Cheers

    Nice work. Could you provide some details on how the hinges were made? I saw the CAD drawings and the actual product, but I would like some details.

    Is that your personal workshop? :jawdrop:

    Thank you and the hinges were made with a CNC machine.The hinge is made of 4 parts namely 2 brass bearings,1 axle and 1 socket made of stainless steel.The 2 brass bearings were pressed in with a press.

    No its not my personal workshop.Its the place i work and the boss gave me a key so i can go do some modding when i want. :)

    Thank you and moer will come thats for sure. :)

    Project Flipmode ( Mobo tray in place )

    Update 5. - 2 july 2011 -


    Today i did some modding and made som progress.First i made some drawnings for the mobo plate and the I/O shield.

    Lets cut.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Get them out of the plate and this is how it looks.

    [​IMG]

    The I/O shield.

    [​IMG]

    For starters i bend the mobo plate.

    [​IMG]

    Then i went further with the I/O shield.I painted it and assemble it in the case.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Now thats finisht i took the bottom and top plate to drill some holes and assemble the mobo plate.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Tapped the holes wiith m4.

    [​IMG]

    Now thats finisht i can assemble the mobo plate inside the case.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Fits like a glove so now i can drill and tap the holes for the motherboard and putt the standoffs in.

    [​IMG]

    The space on the backside for the psu,rad,hdd's etc.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The looks.
