Thanks for all your input guys and all the comments! It keeps me motivated to keep going when i get home from work and are tired
Got a bit distracted from building the actual bench the last two days but i did some experiments.
The Hex mesh has very little surface and stability to it. I want something that "glues" them together which will hold it in place but still fairly easy to remove. I tried with double sided sticky tape which almost held it in place but as soon as you apply pressure to it it instantly came loose. That got me thinking...
As you can see the surface of the mesh is not much.
taped the holes that i did not want to be covered, used Teflon tape on the steel sheet so nothing would stick to it
Filled the holes with 2 component epoxy, and let the glue harden. Not the best finish but keep in mind this is just a test not a final mod
Now there is a lot more surface for the double sided tape to adhere to and it works perfectly!
Found another mesh today but not really liking it
I have decided I'm going to paint all the different meshes black and re post the pictures. I might change my mind once they are all black.
Also tried some powder coating last night
This is satin black. Two problems with this color, fingerprints sticks instantly, and it looks kinda cheap
Gun metal gray. Had to try, not gonna paint it like this though
This is the surface finish of the original cooler master case. I'm really liking this surface finish so i'm gonna order some textured powder coating black and give it a try.
Gonna order this color and give it a go!
That's all for it now, but my gf is going to a wedding and will be gone all weekend so a lot will probably happen
