    Today I took behind the LED masking. Diodes (strips) will be inserted in front and on the sides of the stand.

    With balsa I made the grilles and I covered them with ash. Diodes will be inserted in the middle and in front of them will be plexi.

    The front will be a light stand and the diodes under it. Something like this little backlight that's on the front laptop.

    The whole looks like this:

    For those moments it's all - after payout you need to have a razor to improve the intel leap;)

    Sora for quality but at this time, it's not the time to take Pictures;)

    So everything will be painted.
    The stand (MDF and plywood 10 mm) will be painted in black mat - all wood (ash) in the lacquer (half-mat).

    To finish just a little bit:

    - You need to sift through and seize

    - Paint

    - After painting the wooden elements

    - make RGB LEDs

    - Delic CPU + thermo paste + polishing cooling + increase the CPU pressure.

    - Paint all your laptop cooling on a black mat.

    - Mount the screws from the bottom of your laptop.


    I can not wait either;) I'm very happy that you like it.

    We are still working on the bottom of the laptop - but some of the elements will be covered with ash.

    Aquatuning.pl Sponsor Pack should arrive within 2 weeks - then we will take care of the cooling of the laptop. (Delid, painting + better clamping for layouts).

    I am happy, of course, the whole thing you still have to fix on the screws, sand the material and the whole to paint :)

    You just have to buy other screws (shorter probably on the bus).

    Nuts were melted, then pulled out and pasted into the resulting place :)

    I made a recess so that the overlay was easier to paste into place

    Yes - it will be painted black :) - calmly, first you have to prepare the surfaces and give the backing layer;)
