    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 :p but worth it

    rough cutting the fan holes
    [​IMG]

    rough finishing the holes with a file
    [​IMG]

    finished, and the sharp edges smoothed and rounded with 320p filepaper ruler thing.
    [​IMG]


    test fitting with the fan that'll be used
    [​IMG]

    unwrapping the protective film and putting it all together.
    [​IMG]
    very clear stuff
    [​IMG]

    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 :p

    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 the oven to make them dry faster XD 10mins at 150C does the trick.


    put everything together, it fits and looks nice.

    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 :p
