*sits back and waits*
I'll be back in an hour to see if there's any progress.
You sir are crazy amazing! How did I miss this? It reminds me of old school style gnome modding
Elledan & Cheaps <- Go away, I'm busy with my other build! I was actually gonna design the last part today, but found out I only have all the files at work...
rowin4kicks <- i have no idea how you missed it, to be honest I think a lot more people should see it and love it! - But thank you very much! Aming for crazy everytime!
subbed, although I say this is some major overkill for a Wii, it looks epic
Epic > overkill. Period
OMG Wow how did this crazily awesome mod miss my attention, too much epicness to desribe how awesome I think this is subscribed .
Epic bump, now finish this!
Come on guys, I have enough on my plate with the other Mod!
Hopefully everything should be ready and done in mid-march... Then it's time to get on with the car-pc! (and the car in general!)
Since you guys have been bugging me, I might as well get this thing done!
As I said; I only need a couple of little things, and it just sits silently in a corner.
Here goes, the first steps to completion:
Sorry for the quality of the pics, but it's dark here now... I'll take some good pices once it's complete!
Mounting the Wii. Since I'm out of room, I've decided to mount it on the side of my Subwoofer.
Pegs to hold it:
Backplate mounted on Sub:
The Wii sitting nice:
A small step closer, needs a bit of tidying up, and a holder for the Temp. Gauge.
Unless all goes wrong, I should get this done over the weekend!
Won't the vibrations affect the wii's DVD drive? Or are u booting the game thru USB?
Forgot to add it looks stunning
Yaka - It probably would, but I only play Wii sports, and that doesn't have much *OMPF* to it!
To be honest, I didn't think of that!
And thank you very much!
UPDATE - Made the holder for the Temp Gauge.
In the lathe:
Milled the front, and glued it on. Loctite 3440 is the BEST for aluminum! I glued the stuff together, let it set for 25 minutes, and put it in the lathe! I didn't go hard at it, but still impressive that it stayed on! And a good thing as well!
A shot of the glued part in the process:
Turning process done:
Put in! And... Didn't see that there was a big scratch in it until I took off the protective film... Gotta mill the top to get it nice!
That's it for now.
All needed to finish up is:
Mill the top of the tempgauge holder.
Sleeve the usb cables.
Make a new fillport top, since the other one is missing in action.
The Wii should be done some time next week!
Looking fantastic Angel!
Were did you get that temp gauge from? I'm looking to replace the 2 in mine as one is giving a null reading and the others backlight has failed....
Always in my mantra: Key to a super duper mod = add milled parts. This rule never seems to fail
Talk about having a hi-speed Wii. This is definitely a "just because I can" type of mod. Very nicely done.
Gorgeous work Angel .
wow ! that is really amazing ! but i don't understand how it get's it's power
Ty all for the pat on the back!
Dark~3nergy <- It's waterpowered! heh...
I might have explained it badly...
It runs on 12v like always. The pump and the Temp gauge are just run on 5v from the usb ports at the bottom!
