    Cut the core tray:

    Bend 90° in the front of PSU place to get more rigidity for the tray (only 0.75mm steel, looks like paper)

    Closer look:

    Then cut metal toungue before bending until 180° to obtain an hemline contour core tray:

    Almost finished the core tray build, only need to cut and do the bottom right hemlin (and some sanding and black painting)

    The rear of the hemline done with my bench bender:

    Also have to file the 240 rad too to get straight line:

    And the all rear core tray:

    You have gotten a LOT of use out of that HP side panel. :D
    @Jeff Hine -It's because I plan/design way beyond my abilities. This time the design only fits in a gantry cnc... from China.

    I don't mod. PC's because even if I had the space to do so (I live in a 15th floor, 2-bed flat/appt.), it would probably cost me more in materials than it would to buy an un-modded case, to start with... never mind the planning; that alone would take me more than "5 years" before I even bought any materials/components.

    It was a joke for cheapskate (in reference about your yesterday post; don't be offend) that he makes 5 years for mod because of his crashed CNC ;)

    I've just sand the first mastic coat, and apply the second coat. AND, dry it faster in my oven :D

    Great job with the tray.
    I hope you don't cook in that oven :worried:


    You should start...
    Materials and tools are such an investment for your second project.
    Because there will be a second one :grin:

    Suspend it:
    DSC_0832.jpg



    Then paint it black!:

    DSC_0836.jpg



    All that work for that (my heart doesn't know if it was a worthwhile goal)

    Sanding panel before applying hematite oxydizer:

    Crafting my power water sandig tool (piece of wood, paper sand, paper tape and a old white wine cubitenaire recycled in water fountain)


    DSC_0874.jpg DSC_0875.jpg



    Sanding with ater for hours and hours with different kernels of papers sand following steel vein (4 faces, almost 3 hours)
    DSC_0876.jpg



    Result of 3 hours of sanding: lot of steel dust with water looks like steel mud!
    DSC_0877.jpg



    But I appreciate the result:
    DSC_0878.jpg



    Then cleaning and preparing steel before its treatment:
