does anyone think it looks like a holey breadbin
The main problem with the lack of space is that I dont have a working bench and this is a big problem for my back.
Thanks brother for your kind words!
LoL thanks bro!
Always a pleasure and a joy to look into your work. Keep on modding and inspiring
Thank you my friend much appreciated comment
I love how this is looking still can't picture how its going to turn out but i can see by the progress made its going to be something special again mate!
Thanks brother DP, I guess is very obvious now at least the main chassis theme, well the rest will follow ;P More "Artistic" bits to get involved soon!!!
Looking sweet Alex .
Every picture closer to the end result makes this better and better... and better! Mod on brother.
Hope it will continue with that pace Thank you my friend!
Awesome and unique, as all of your work is my friend. And with acrylic this time. Sorry to have missed the start of this. I've got this sub'd so I don't miss anymore of it.
Nice to see you here brother!!! Thanks for your kind words, now you are not going to miss any updates! Peace
Today or tomorrow bro!
Here we go with one more update!
A lot of work, more to follow but things are going good for now!
Lets begin right away with the work I did on the second side panel.
A t first I glued a wooden rod on the chassis as a mock up for the side panel.
Then I started cutting and gluing the rods, a long and time wasting process.....
I calculated the space needed for ventilation due to the radiators exhausting hot air,
so I cut the rods in the right size and I also took in count the extra acrylic etc I was going to add.
I draw some designs on the 1mm acrylic for the first piece I was going to add on the panel.
After I cut it, I glued it on the side panel.
I also made a design on the second piece, I cut it, filed it and glued it.
Time for more designs based on simple half circle concept to be but for extra ventilation.
It looks messy cause I was experimenting with a couple alternative solutions!!
And dremel in action again!!
After I finished filing,sanding the front pieces it was time for me to add the mesh.
I used 2 different kinds of mesh, one with bigger holes than the other. Art is involved too! ;P
For maximum durability I used a Byson universal adhesive which I used not to only glue but to create a kind of crust between the plastic and the mesh which is holding them together really tight.
Here is the finer mesh I used. I cut it into the right shape and then by gluing little by little I firmly attached it too.
And here is the side panel almost finished as it needs more sanding and also, painting!!! lol
I also added a thumbscrew to hold it in place!
Here you can see the extra ventilation on the bottom, the same thing I did on the left side panel.
And here is how it looks on the back.
Off course it needs more sanding etc and after painting it will change completely! Now I need to buy my self an airbrush!! If anyone knows a good UK store I can find one but with shipping to Cyprus please msg me! Thanks for watching guys, till next time, peace!!!
Looking nice! Really love it, with the wood and the mesh
Thanks brother! Nice to hear your point of view!
Awesome work - but I'm now struggling to see the vision - can't wait for it to be unveiled, update by update
I think get is actually building a breadbin
Cant wait to see it when all comes together. it doesn't make any sense now...
Thanks brother matt, its an imagination game and journey! Patience will pay u off!!
I believe its really obvious except from the colors, if you see the previous updates and this you will get the idea!
I think you can get a good idea of where AnG3L's going with this with the updates on page 8. Looking very unique pal, I'm getting the idea of it now! What size rads are you installing in it and how many? Keep up the good work!
Thanks brother glad you got the idea!
I am going to install 2X Phobya 280's in one loop this time!
First time that I will go with one loop!
