Project: The "Invisible" 400R - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, let's get this finished!

Now do realize that all the pictures in this post are of rough cuts. The "final" pics you see in this post are not the true product. They are of an uncleaning lexan and metal, a rough cut (needs to be trimmed more) and I need more rubber outlining to go around the cut itself. So let's begin (well, techincally finish, haha)

I cut out all the circles, which gave me my curving square around the edges and also a rough estimate on where to cut.

So it took about 20 minutes to cut out the entire center, since I had to be so fragile with it. The pic below is just after a little bit of cleaning off the edges, it looks quite better right now than it did then.

A rough picture of what the lexan will look like inside.

Now for the fun part. Breaking (bending) the lexan. I first had to mark off where I'm going to break it at.

Unfortunately, I couldn't take a picture of the break happening, cause I didnt have any hands free. But just imagine a big machine doing it, haha. But this is what it looks like now.

Another rough shot of what it will look like inside the case, from the back view.

The rubber outlining (I really don't know the offical name for this, haha) I will be using.

Now for the rough final version. I'm using tape just to hold the lexan to the back so it doesn't get scratched, but this is what it should look like when done, just more cleaner.

Next part is coming up real soon guys. Going to be installing lights inside now. White inverterless cathode lights actually.

I've seen Xoxide and CrazyPC has these lights for fairly cheap, anywhere else yall would recommend to buy these lights?

Hey!

I know it's been ages but looking for the 400r with a side window I came across your post.
Could you update with some pics with the lights installed?
Are you still using this case, didn't it break yet? tongue.gif
