    Do you have an idea on the colour-scheme allready? Like anodizing or powder-coating, adding coloured acrylics?

    Just asking out of curiosity ;)

    @ oldnewby, lol, bruises are not the fingers though.

    @ Mokey Mokey, tyvm :)

    @ jrs77, I do, but I'm not decided on it yet, but definitely going to look into powder coating, and I'm tossing up between UV Mars Red and UV Yellow acrylic, the color scheme I do eventually go with has to tie in with the entire mod or it wont sit right with me.

    So this morning I went to the workshop (my work shed) and finished off 99% of the front panel.

    [​IMG]

    Then added the grill and DVD thingy, to make sure it's all going to line up properly (I check this alot as its the impact point of the entire front panel)

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]
    Cut out the CD/DVD rom bay, its a tad short on the sides, something to address tomorrow.

    [​IMG]
    Flipped it over...

    [​IMG]
    Added everything to the front panel including the Lian Li CD Rom Face plates, lian li use a different grade of alu than what I'm using, but if I get it all powder coated then it wont matter.


    So I'm leaving the front panel for the moment, its not the strongest front panel I've ever made and it's starting to show, so I'll be making a Jig for it to sit in and keep straight till I'm ready to cut the remainder of it.

    BACK PANEL>

    [​IMG]
    Let me introduce you to the back panel, simular to the front panel , as you can see I'll be continuing the edging into the back panel as well.
    I'll be using the Lian Li motherboard tray from my old 7 series server tower, and modifying it to suit my needs.
    Also a 120mm fan hole and Ive centered the PSU mount.

    [​IMG]
    Cut out the PSU thingy.

    More to follow soon.

    Back from Easter break(Happy belated Easter), and so on with the update.

    Have been busy with the rear panel, cutting and filing...

    [​IMG]
    Completed, took a lot longer than the first one as my nibbler is on its way out and no matter how many times I lube it up, it still keeps getting weaker and weaker, much like my hands and arms.

    Also began work on the acrylic I'm going to be using, for the front and rear and fan grill and dvd doovey thingy.

    [​IMG]
    Used my trusty dremel and then hand filed it all down, once I'm completely happy with it, I'll flame polish all the acrylic and give it a nice polish to remove any unwanted scratches.

    [​IMG]
    I'm using the acrylic to dress the fan grill up a tad, so I marked my lines, then selected the bits to be cut out, as you can see not everything is being cut out, just whatever is in the 2 x 120mm radius.

    [​IMG]
    As seen here...

    [​IMG]
    Add the aluminium fan grill and then it all begins to make sense. Note the alu is in raw form, only having removed the grid paper from it, still needs a few sands and a polish.

    [​IMG]
    Both front and rear panels completed, I removed the edges away as they were beginning to fray, leaving the main bit so I can work on the frame for the case.

    [​IMG]
    Put what I have done so far together , make sure it looks ok and nothing is out of place or done wrong, and it appears to be ok.

    I'm in the process of doing the dvd bit, that I shall post tomorrow.

    Random photo of the day.


    Much more work to do, and more updates to follow :)

    Really nice work. And the fact that you are using nothing but a nibbler just makes it even better.

    Keep up the good work and please buy a new nibbler. You can't do beautiful Alu crafting with sore, blistered hands

    Looking great mate.

    Seth, may I ask where you get your plexi from? It looks like pretty good quality stuff. I'm from Adelaide, they may have a local store I could get some plexi from.

    @ The boy 4rm oz, I've had my plexi for about 4 years now, I bought scrap pieces in bulk, but the company I got them off was called YORK, don't have a email or webby for them sorry, but they are a plastics mob, I'll have a look for their business card and PM u the details if I find it.

    I'll reply to everyone else on the next update :)
