UPDATE:

Another long day, made the aluminium plate for the front and cut out the hole for the radiator then realised when I tried to install the radiator that the spacing on my fan shrouds and on the sheet I had jst made were out by 2mm width ways frown.gif will try to just expand the hole for the aluminium plate as I can't bring myself to make another but will probably just reprint the shrouds on the laser wink.gif

Here are the photos of the making of the aluminium plate, was hoping to show you guys a photo of the front done with a front cover, radiator, fans and sheet but unfortunately the hole issue screwed that up frown.gif

Don't forget to check out my new build log for the desk build I have planned wink.gif

Thoughts? A few more things to add such as C47 fittings, E22 ultra clear tube, sleeving, coolant and HDD and RAM blocks

Nice so long as they aren't the MDD version then they aren't too tricky to mod wink.gif

Yet another busy day, trying to get the cutting done by the end of this week so I can start to paint next week biggrin.gif . Managed to clean up my mistake on the front panel with regards to fan spacing, marked up and cut roughly the side 240mm mount, used the angle grinder but first marked out the corners with a centre punch then a 2mm drill bit and then a 7mm drill bit so that the grinder just had to go dot to dot! Got a bit of filing done on that cut too bu will be finished tomorrow. Did a test fit this evening and all works in terms of the front panel radiator, however discovered a problem, I can't get the plastic panel off as the cutouts that I made for the tabs in the aluminium front panel weren't big enough so now it is stuck on until I can get back into the workshop where I have access to pliers and allen keys so I can remove the aluminium panel, so I will need to make those cutouts bigger.

Also did a rough cost up today, its not pretty! Excluding some parts it comes to 1400 pounds, around 2000 dollars and then there are around 400 pounds more worth of stuff that needs to be sourced from elsewhere like sleeving and some of the bitspower bits.
