    subbed, although I say this is some major overkill for a Wii, it looks epic

    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! :)

    Yaka - It probably would, but I only play Wii sports, and that doesn't have much *OMPF* to it! :lol:

    To be honest, I didn't think of that! :lol:

    And thank you very much! :)

    UPDATE - Made the holder for the Temp Gauge.

    In the lathe:

    [​IMG]


    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! :lol:

    [​IMG]

    A shot of the glued part in the process:

    [​IMG]

    Turning process done:

    [​IMG]

    Put in! And... :wallbash: 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! :thumb:

    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 :D

    Talk about having a hi-speed Wii. This is definitely a "just because I can" type of mod. Very nicely done.

    Ty all for the pat on the back! :)

    Dark~3nergy <- It's waterpowered! heh...

    I might have explained it badly... :lol:

    It runs on 12v like always. The pump and the Temp gauge are just run on 5v from the usb ports at the bottom! :)
