    Ambitious and delicious! Are you going to be cutting out segments of the mobo plate to allow the mobo back to been seen through the second window? It'd be a shame to just have plain metal showing through those flames.

    I have actually decided to leave the other panel solid, it occured to me that if you wanted to hide the wires behind the mobo plate, cutting out the panel would blow that deal.

    I made the fan grill, I own a company called Bonzai-mods, we design and sell fan grills of all kinds, this face one is my company logo.


    Thanks everyone for all the kind words, I will be shooting the paint for this case in the next few days, I am going for a classic black with warm colored flames, i.e. a fade from white at the front of the bezel into yellows, reds and oranges. I am undecided if i will use flat black (the classic primer look) or clearcoat the whole thing. I will also be gutting the twin 80mm intake fans up front and putting in a cleaner single 120mm intake fan.

    I think the glossy black would match the flames the best. If you have half-gloss and half-matte it will look strange, and it would definitely look better shiny.

    Fantastic work on that door. I don't think I've ever seen a thread hit 5 stars so fast.

    It looks like for the front "scoop/grill" that you used sections of styling foam and then coated them in resin before filler?
    Looks nice, and I like the fact that you use guide coats - most don't understand the importance. :dremel:

    I have to agree with the glossy black... While primer might look ok on a car, I don't think the mod would suffer from a gloss finish... it might from a 'primer' flat black finish.

    Excellent project. I've got some similar ideas in my sketchbook and you're really inspiring me.

    I vote satin black, it really makes the flames pop. Respect to the old school! :thumb:

    The original bezel is fiberglassed foam core like a surfboard covered in a home-made filler, However that would not be nearly heavy or strong enough to handle years of use so I actually molded a copy of the original Fiberglass/foam part. It is cast in solid urethane plastic.

    excellent,

    I have several 1948 Wolseleys (UK built so not hotrod's), and i might have to do something like this, but made to look like a Wols grille & hood.
