    From seeing your other mods, I think you can remove the "simple" in the tittle. ^^
    can't wait to see how this will turn out !

    I should kick myself for making those scrathes.:wallbash:

    Edit:

    Sorry, i have to broke my promise, no updates for a week or two, job takes me out of country tomorrow morning.

    -Update 1- 4.6.2009

    Aaha, again i broke my promises. This is first update for this project.

    Loads of pictures, i hope you don't get bored while those are loading.

    First some markings:

    [​IMG]

    Then some cutting with corner grinder:

    [​IMG]

    Cutting done:

    [​IMG]

    Drilled some holes and did some shaping with my trysty depurring tool:

    [​IMG]

    More cutting and drilling:

    [​IMG]

    After bending:

    [​IMG]

    Parts for the ends:

    [​IMG]

    And my genuine bending tool for small pieces:

    [​IMG]

    Attached with tig:

    [​IMG]

    And welded:

    [​IMG]

    And What is that???

    [​IMG]

    It should be somekind of airfilter, it needs some modders mesh and mirror like polishing first.

    And where it goes???

    Answering needs sawing:

    [​IMG]

    .....

    [​IMG]

    Hmm....

    [​IMG]

    Ok, so what it does???

    [​IMG]

    It houses two hdd's.

    And how to get access for those hdd's, that's simple. You just open the hood. :)

    Today is my sons birhtday, so let's wawe and say happy birhday to Tuukka.

    HYVÄÄ SYNTYMÄPÄIVÄÄ TUUKKA! :clap:

    Thanks Jipa!

    Because my drawing sucks, i tried to make paper model:

    [​IMG]

    Measures ain't correct, shape should be somewhat near what i have planned.

    Allthought my paper models suck too. :D

    You might notice those open areas for the headlights and how i'm going to make case little bigger to make room for the radiator.
