    Thank you guys :rock:

    Damouse @ Oh boy that wouldn't be nice :hehe:

    I’ve always been follower of project logs with a lot of pictures, its so much easier to take a picture, and make a 1 line explanation, than to explain it with 5 lines :D

    ---

    Well back to the mod: I’m sorry, but I did just not enough work this week to make an update. Now I’m going on a little vacation, and I’ll first be back next week, hopefully You’ll get an update on Tuesday or Wednesday in the week after the next week ^^. Here I’ll finish the fridge so I can move on with some seriously modding.

    See you soon guys!

    Had a semi-related question....

    What was the stuff you used on the cracks? Googling synthetic metal gives me nothing.

    Update 4 – Fridge Part 4 @ Tuesday the 27th February 2007.

    For word.
    All right I’ve got some more work done today.
    One update more, and the fridge should be finished :)

    The funny part

    [​IMG]
    First a picture from where I was last week (Trysil @ Norway). Man there was goddamn -20 degrees.

    [​IMG]
    Lets mod! So I’m going to use some foam (don’t know what its called in English) instead of the noise isolation. It seems as a much better solution.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Now I put some “joint mass” on because: it hide the ugly foam, And it helps to isolate when the door is closed. I’ll paint everything when there’s nothing else left to do.

    [​IMG]
    I’ve rivet the hing, I’ll paint those to, as swell as repaint the whole fridge.

    [​IMG]
    And I’ve drilled a hole for the cables.

    [​IMG]
    Now the peltier and the coolblock are mounted.

    [​IMG]
    The backside looks good to.

    [​IMG]
    Well I ****ed the door up, so I’m going to make a new ^^ (Maan I love my mill :D)

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    That’s pretty good.

    [​IMG]
    And the door is on, it fits very good.

    [​IMG]
    All right lets work on the little handle.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    After a meet with my mill it’s almost done, just need some filling and sanding, to make it fit the rest of the fridge.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    This is how it should be, it’s properly good enough ;)

    See you soon! Btw. Comments are welcome!

    Great work but the heatsink you're using just isn't gonna be enought for the peltier :/

    I think you haven't seen this one, it's my old case that had a peltier-fridge in it! http://metku.net/modgallery/detail.php?id=3956 I'll try to find more detailed pictures from that thing if you want..

    I had a AMD 64-heatsink and a cross-flow fan to cool the heatsink down, but it still got pretty hot! And the peltier was only 40-60 Watts...

    Your fridge sure looks better, but I'm just worried to hell about if that's gonna work.

    EDIT: I can't believe the host is still alive (it's one that came with our first internet-connection that hasn't been used for five years :jawdrop: )

    So there's images of the fridge-part

    Kinda enought as the peltier didn't die, but as the cooling power is all about temperature difference the peltier creates (let's say 40 c), if the hot side is 20 C the cold side is -20, but if it heats up to 35 C, you'll only be able to get the cold side down to -5 C.

    So the size really does matter ;)

    I know that, the deffrence between the two sites on my peltier is 60C, så if i just can do the one side 65C I'll have the cold side at 5C which would be good :) But lets see.

    Update 5 – The Fridges logo part 1 @ Thursday the 1st March 2007.

    For word.
    Today I got some more work done! When I’m working on the fridge, so I can give you guys the last update, I wanted to do something cool.
    There isn’t much to say. But I think you should enjoy the result, cause I bet it looks great! Next update will arrive tomorrow. I’ll paint the alu black, and hope it looks even better :D

    The funny part

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    All right, first I’ve cut some 1½mm alu and some 3mm plexi out.

    [​IMG]
    I did a little sketch – hope you’ll understand it.

    [​IMG]
    I’ve put it in the mill.

    [​IMG]
    Now the hard work begin ^^

    OMG Jon.. Nice job you've just made here... Want some!!!! :D

    I'm looking forward to see the end result of this project, and when I'm thinking on your Custom Alu Case (that is really cool in my opinion), this can only be good!

    Also looking forward to see it IRL ;)... Let's find a date where i can see it..

    Cheers..

    Ohh.. And the plexi looks like the logo i made for you :D

    Man, I reckon that could've looked so sweet with the metal still over the top of it - have the acrylic lit up by LEDs, then it'd shine out the sides giving a nice little effect.
