    Historically the stagecoach was made of wood so I covered the frame's metal struts with 1 mm wooden slats and connected painting once with a coat of white paint to get a single bottom then with a coat of ocher paint.

    Many thanks Asulc !

    Creation of front and back wheels directly using 5 mm aluminium sheet. The wheels are a single-piece instead of being separated in three points (central ring, external and spokes) just to get a strong basis.

    Love the idea behind this project, it's always fun to see the progression of a case design that isn't being following a common style.
    I'm terrible at puzzles, so having to put all of those pieces together would confuse the hell out of me.

    Interested to see where you're going to place the fans on this, hidden at the bottom of the chassis?
    Or are you planning on more of a passive cooling setup?

    Hello suenstar, thank you :)
    I apologize if I haven't updated the thread because I'm moving into a new house and I don't have available computer and internet.
    Initially I had planned to put a radiator on the roof and one in the frame but in the end the sponsor has made use of me the 240M.
    As soon as I can update the thread !
