A little bit of news about the build it self. The last 2 months I didn't do anything on the project but last week I have started back.
I am currently working on the air vents on the side panel. These will be made out of 6mm plexiglas that will be glued together to a solid piece of 12mm.

I swear if Noctua would just use different color they would sell a butt load more than they do now.

I think they actually look classy, and its very clever of noctua actually as its subliminal advertising, as you see that colour and know its a noctua. So clever on their part.

True but if they would just go black that would be more awesome.

Small update I almost finished all pieces for the side panels. I only need to make 2 pieces before I can start filling up the small holes in the panel. The last 2 pieces will be very time consuming and a lot of pratice to get it right. But I will tell U more about it later this update.

I have taken the 2 side panels to work so I can start making some holes in it for the fins.

SDC11214.jpg

WP_000064.jpg

Removed the Aluminium from the plastic panel.

WP_000065.jpg

Cutted out 5 mm of the border of the panel this will give a better end result later in the progress.

WP_000066.jpg

Fitting the 2 fins in the panel.

WP_000079.jpg

WP_000082.jpg

WP_000083.jpg

WP_000081.jpg

As U can see there are some open spot between the pieces but U wont see this in the end result of the panel.

WP_000086.jpg

Next step is drilling some holes and tap some wire in it.

SDC11642.jpg

Placing the parts in the side panel.

SDC11643.jpg

SDC11644.jpg

SDC11649.jpg

SDC11650.jpg

SDC11648.jpg

Now I only need to make 1 more part for the panel before I can finish it. The idea is to implant a old school grill in the side that was used to ventilate the hot air under the hood. Here is a sample picture I have linked from the web to give U a idea.

stock-photo-vintage-international-truck-side-view-of-fender-and-grill-7336597.jpg

The result will be beautiful but will take a lot of time and practice to get it right. I will try to make it out of 1mm thick iron plate that I had lying around from a other mod.

WP_000098.jpg

That was is it cya next time.

Small sneak peak

Have bin working on the last part for the side panel. The piece U will see is just a try out. But I need to admit that it is looking great already.

WP_000126.jpg

WP_000124.jpg

WP_000125.jpg

Update!!

Last weekend I went to Pascal (Paslis) to get some freshly made parts for my project.

SDC11726.jpg

As U can see there are already cuts in the sheet of Aluminium. This was done with a cuttinglazer and will help me to create the air vents in the panel.

SDC11727.jpg

SDC11728.jpg

Started with making a negative mold for the vent. These pieces where made my lazercutting machine. But they still needed some work before it would be ready to use.
Had to file the shape of the Vent in to the piece. After that it needed some sanding to smooth the edges out.

WP_000113.jpg

WP_000114.jpg

Finished product. tongue.gif

WP_000115.jpg

WP_000116.jpg

The rest U will need to follow in these 2 video's I have made. This is the best way for me to show/explain how I made it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgqUc3CJekw&list=UUnFEIh_JZlN_lpRkkIQGDrw&index=2&feature=plcp

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAAXaOg3LM4&list=UUnFEIh_JZlN_lpRkkIQGDrw&index=1&feature=plcp

After a hour of work U get this as end result.

SDC11764.jpg

SDC11765.jpg

SDC11767.jpg

SDC11769.jpg

I have also started to work on the top grill of the case. This part will need to get the same look as the front grill of the case.

SDC11729.jpg

SDC11730.jpg

WP_000112.jpg

SDC11750.jpg

To give U a Idea of how it will look like.

SDC11751.jpg

SDC11752.jpg

Just need to find a good way to attach it all.

SDC11753.jpg

SDC11754.jpg

That is it again, thank U for reading. biggrin.gif
