MKG Cosmos II case mod - Page 16

post #151 of 794
How much would all those tools cost? And your welcome lol.

EDIT : Also, how would a 360 rad fit at the top?

EDIT 2: Yeah so this guy tried to charge me 200 for the side window I think I might just try and do this myself.

Very very nice Bob. I'm looking at my Cosmos II right now with a shameful look on my face "why! why can't you be like that, all the money I spent on you!"

Well your looking at about $50 for a dremel and a bunch of cut-off disks, $15 for the rivet gun (+$5 for rivets), You should be able to find a decent drill at a garage sale for $10. You can fit a 360 rad up top if you dont mind losing the top 5.25" slot. You're not talking about me, but I would want about $150 to do it again, maybe less it it went quicker than it did the first time lol I just wanted to let everyone reading this that 'this guy' did not mean "this guy" rolleyes.gif

Thanks Guys!

Well I didn't get as much done as I was hoping for today, but this mod is making a habit of that! Slow and steady.. Thats what she said-

So anyway, I was thinking that I would pay tribute to OCN on this case since you guys have taught me so much over the past few years. Whenever I need help with computer issues, or creative ideas regarding building computers and such, OCN members have always been there to help! So I was thinking about putting a backlit flame in this area where I am going to be putting the resevoir and pump. The glowing flame should make checking water level in the res that much easier and cooler!

Here's the planning phase. I know the flame dimentions are skewed a bit, but I had to make it fit in the space that is allowed.

img0460fx.jpg

Next I carefully cut out my flame and then traced it onto some masking tape on the plastic (inner part) door. I covered the rest with paper to for a bit of protection.

img0465rp.jpg

I cut it out with my jigsaw with a metal blade after drilling a starting hole with a drill. The box-knife and snips are for removing the frame things off the backside.

img0468dh.jpg

like so..

img0469qg.jpg

I removed quite a bit of the stiffness of the door frame, but I think that the plexiglass (and possibly more mesh) will restore most of its strength.

img0470et.jpg

After some scraping with a single sided razor blade, it looks much cleaner-

img0471mp.jpg

after some cutting with razor knife/blades, and some sanding then wet-sanding-

img0474pv.jpg

the finished cut (with paper standing in for the plexi) thumb.gif

img0476if.jpg

Then I remasked both halves of the door to protect from overspray.

img0479ph.jpg

img0481hd.jpg

Then I take both pieces down to the paintbooth (basement) and first hit em with primer, then 10 minutes later some white enamel. I am painting these to help reflect the lighting that will be inside the door.

img0482vk.jpg

Besides that, I honed the orange plexi for the MadKat logo with some 220 grit. It was crystal clear before. I honed it to help disperse the lighting.

img0462hi.jpg

I'm not sure if I will be using the black mesh or not. I will have to decide which looks better. If I can't make up my mind, I will put it to a OCN vote wink.gif

img0464fx.jpg

More to come and thanks for looking, and your comments cheers.gif

You will need to solder but looking at your case, I'm guessing you can handle that.
Here is a couple posts of it being used in a Trooper

I just ordered 3 feet of warm white, and 1 foot of blue smooth double density tape. It's probably more than I need, but better to have a bit too much than not enough! I'll have to wait until I get home from work to get a return email from him or paypal.. had to email in my order request. Thanks again for the link Goodink!

I'm in love with it! I sent you a text asking you about the lengths of cords so I can order/start the sleeving, it's pretty hard to get anything from mdpc right now, but it will totally be worth the wait!! I've also been debating upgrading to the 2700k, I've seen some pretty good numbers from it on a WC setup.

I saw the orange...and was intrigued
Then the immaculate worksmanship started unveiling
Then the MadKat logo...
Then I realized you also made the gaming / racing booth...
