nice work. but maybe you can use tinted acrylic
no. friend doesnt want that. dont think so.
plus we only get "smoked" acrylic here. and its really dark.
umm btw i love big window. if got clean and neat inside it would be great to display
marked off the acrylic
cutting done and all filed and smoothed out.
pre holes drilled with smaller bit
acrylic positioned with the sidepanel, and taped to transfer the bolt hole positions to the sidepanel
holes drilled in steel sidepanel and finished off.
time to mate the two together
and it fits
thats it for now.
Nice job bro
That left top corner was making me OCD as it was you from the sounds of it, much better now and very good work so far
its 2"30am here and just finished the final touches on the physical aspects. only paining and sizing the bolts is left. working since 4pm. my hands are sore but worth it
rough cutting the fan holes
rough finishing the holes with a file
finished, and the sharp edges smoothed and rounded with 320p filepaper ruler thing.
test fitting with the fan that'll be used
unwrapping the protective film and putting it all together.
very clear stuff
hope you enjoyed it. i will be out of station for 3days, will paint the nuts and bolts tomorrow. That way, they will be be ready for assembly when i come back.
everything wrapped in newspaper and stored. ran out of masking tape too
Nice job Das, looking sweet.
Very nice, how did you drill the dip into the bolt holes? Special tool or just a bigger drill bit?
Just FYI pop rivets end up being a cleaner look for that style window mod. One of those for future reference things, looks good with the screws however.
i used a round stone bit for that.
Never dip the drill beyond whats reqd. Can snap off.
Great job Buddy
Now deliver it Fast
Polished allen-head screws work too.
oh yes they do. I love allen screws. Couldnt find then here though.
True statement. Rivets are easier for me to shoot not like its coming off again.
Finished the final touches on this mod
first painted all the nuts and bolts black
i used the oven to make them dry faster XD 10mins at 150C does the trick.
put everything together, it fits and looks nice.
glad i painted it black
all taped up for transport. will add styrofoam boards to absorb some shocks on the acrylic. or ill just take a taxi to deliver it :s
final pictures time
then i went and bought this too :
Nice Build DDD
DDD ya have to do the rest for him, that side window looks too good for the rest lol
and why are most computers/mods red?
Red and black look good together I guess. One of mine was red and black, was called Black to the core, had a core2duo in it, (you get it?)
I'm still in need of a good friend to do the cable management pro as DDD is busy & I'm physically challenged.
I love the colors red & black
dont worry bro, i will let you know as soon as i have some time. even in weekends if possible.
Looks awesome. Good work DDD.
