    After some time hangin around here i thougt lets post my casemod here, still building it.

    I bought a secondhand LianLi v1000B plus, it was already coated black so that was a +.

    When it got here after 2 days i was verry happy, Lets unwrap the ************!:coke:

    Then i scared the hell out. My eyes were seeing this:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Now that says enough, some fatdude/chick have used my case as a chair.

    Wtf how much weight do u need for that kinda damage to a LiLi v1000

    After some calls and mails i got the green light to fix the damn thing.

    So i disambled the whole mofo and start beating it up(in a good way), and i Got some good results.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Used: heater, hammer, 3clamps,piece of 4sided tube.

    So lets go on then, my base was OK now and 100% in 1 line.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Thats some good progres.

    After 2 days i got myself 2 HWlabs blackGT's.

    1st location.
    [​IMG]
    Some fancy LiLi fanconnectors for the eye side :crack:
    [​IMG]

    Got myself some awesome goodie!
    [​IMG]

    It look like an triangular sandingmachine,but what can he do more?
    Hmm i can do some sawing with it, so lets try it on my sidepanel.
    [​IMG]


    Give the sidepanel some protection and drawed my design on it.
    [​IMG]

    The idea for the panel.
    [​IMG]

    Than i hooked the sanding machine whith the pre-ordered sawingblade.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Thing working like hell! damn so ****ing straight
    [​IMG]

    Otherwise, i need to file it bij hand sooooo, hmm the machine is nice but still need some elbowgrease to make it worthy.
    [​IMG]

    First half is done, looks awesome-o
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Not 100% but that is for some othertime, my fingers where hurting like hell.
    [​IMG]

    This looks good right? (the res was a mock-up but hell no its not worthy the case like that)
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Got some lexan plate an taped it up.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Some old **** what im working whith.
    [​IMG]

    Well what happenned to your Lian li is horrible (ask the guy if he played some football with it?)
    But the way you repaired it is brilliant! I wouldn't have believed it is possible before seing it.
    And i like the rounded shape on the front.

    If you'd have shown me before and after pictures I'd have to you to "go do one". You've done a great job getting it all straightened out. It looked like it had been in a traffic accident before. This mods looking good. I'll be keeping a close eye on it. Well done mate keep it up. Have some rep .:thumb:

    You did an excellent job fixing that Lian Li. I would have had some very serious words with the shipping company about that one.

    I have liked what you have done so far. I really like that new plexi shroud you made for the front, ever think of adding some silver mesh behind the holes? You have some good WC gear there and the loop looks nice and tidy. Looking forward to more.

    To answer to your question I prefer the john-lund res. But I guess It depends of how the rest of your case mod will look.

    Excellent work on the pump and res mounting, it looks very clean. Also, where did you get the 240mm template? Did you make it yourself or download it for somewhere?
