^ what he said
Dude take a pic of your workshop
Yes that would be awesome, I want to see how your making all these bends.
Thanks you guys Love the picture
I have a little mod attic, no hightech stuff just hand tools
So here is the picture.............sorry I didn't clean up the place before taking the pic but i'm a little busy with the TJ right now
Very impressive it really shows you don't need a garage with tons of tools to turn out quality work! Great job keep up the work!
Dude damn nice build!!! Where you from?? This Is the first build/mod log of that case that i knoe off and i like it, but freaking expensive
Truly outstanding workmanship on this case mod. Love the attention to detail and looking forward to the finished article.
It's not a big room, but have everything that I needs.
Maybe I,m your next door neighbor Living in the Netherlands
Thank you my friend
Probally not xd i live in heenvliet 20km under rotterdam, there are no case modders xd
I would keep the 180mm intake fans they are awesome. I dislike screens.
Your kidding me, that's the one thing I dont like from the TJ, the fans and the air intakes
I gotta agree with douglatins it's the best part to me as well, but since your going WC it makes little difference.
Sponsor Update: EKWB
This week I received a very nice package with even beautifull products in from EKWB
The package (always nice to receive packages)
Containing a fine collection of WC stuff
First a nice Coolstream360 radiator.
EK-CoolStream RAD XT (360)
3x EK-FC480 GTX Backplate Black
2x EK DCC Top with 140 reservoir
EK-DCC X-RES 140
The last Block for the GTX480
Placed the DCC tops on the MCP355
Instead of 140mm reservoirs I’m gonna useEK-Multioption RES X2 - 250 Basic
The GPUs will be connected to the front res, need to adjusting the black acrylic to get a straight line to the inlet of the reservoir
The outlet of the pump is going down through the midplate to a draining point, and so on to the radiators
I also have placed the back plates and installed the last block on the GPU's. Always looks nice
And placed everything
EKWB thank you for making this update / build possible
Looking great, can't wait to see what you do with the radiators!
Sponsor Update: Mnpctech
This week was a special week, received the package from Bill from Mnpctech
With a an important part for the TJ11.
3M Di-Noc CARBON FIBER FILM
To begin I’ll need to cover the air intakes from the sidepanel. Dont want these to be seeing.
So cut a strip of 1mm aluminium
And put thin double sided tape on it
After this I’ve cut two pices of 2 mm aluminium, exact the size of the slots
3M Scotch Clear Mounting Tape #4010
Used the tape of the gods to put these pieces on the strips and also to increasing the pieces
Put them in
After this I want it all to become flat without cracks, so I did use some silicone sealant
Next measering and cutout, what did I use:
-3M Di-Noc CARBON FIBER FILM
-X-acto knife with sharp blade
-Heat gun/ Hair dryer (heat gun is to hot so take distance with this)
-About 60 minutes of time
Measured the sidepanel
Cut it out and left about one inch on all sides.
Here we go………….. I’ve cut about 5 inch of the paper off and past the first half,
After this the other half
Make sure the sidepanel is clean and free of any grease or dirt.
Align the vinyl with the case, remove the backing and then place it on as smoothly as you can. I used a credit card to smooth any bubbles out
For the round edges I’ve used my heat gun. Turn the heat gun on and proceed to slowly and evenly heat the vinyl, whilst doing so, smooth it outwards with your thumb and down around all the edges.
Take your x-acto knife and use the lines as your guide. Go slowly and make sure of where you’re cutting before you cut, hopefully preventing any miscuts or scratches to the side panel.
And one side panel finished
Also did the other panel with the slots for de aquaero displays
Cut out the window, displays and the fanholes
And the front of the TJ. Again cut a piece larger then the front
Just a little heat
And cut it out
Also did the radiator bracket
Everything placed back
And installed it in the TJ
So did a lot of pasting this week. Here some pics how this is becoming a real carbon TJ
And the vertical lines from the TJ and from the carbon
Other side, the most important side
Some detail shots
That´s it for now my friends………see ya and keep on modding
Looking better and better with every update!
Awesome build-quality. Subd

Coolermaster & Highflow Thanks!!!
wow state of the art
Don't know how I missed this one. Will be following now.
Great news......did almost all the sleeving, a hell of a job. Only a few more sata and usb
And I was busy with the loop in the lower section. used the Y fitting for draining and to the rad
Almost finished with the BP links
Maybe you've noticed but almost all the red on the motherboard is gone......pci-e, red button and the red sata. Did this with black film
Next step is to make a slot in the tray for some cables like the power led, switch, usb and other stuff
So time for Dremel action
Placed the hardware back
Not finished yet, I mis the yellow line
So I've cut a piece of the yellow acryl
Again used some black film
Paste it and cut out the lines
And placed it on the tray
Still waiting for the last fittings, hopefully next week and then.....................fill up the TJ
OMG I can't wait to see more!
