Basement Update

So as you saw in my last update i got alot of the acrylic for the basement! So yesterday i took another delivery of some matte black vinyl wrap! rather than painting the acrylic im just going to wrap it!

Heres some pictures of the first wrap!


Measuring out the vinyl so i dont waste any!!


Didnt get many inbetween shots but here it is wrapped! You can see i need to smooth down the closest edge!


Nice smooth finish


Started on some measurements for the front shroud! I always sit in maths class like "when am i ever going to use this in real life?" and low and behold i used some maths stuffs to figure out angles and lengths haha


I attempted to do some bending using the oven but it was not happening! so i shot out and bought myself a cheap heatgun! cost me like 15 pounds from maplin!! but will help me a great deal


Heres the first bend! its pretty dead straight and looks good! This is the basement roof! it has to bend down at the mobo side so it doesnt hit anything! more on that later!!


Heres the front shroud bent! As you can see in the bottom right i cracked it a little but no worries i have some acrylic filler i can use to fill it then sand it out! its going to be wrapped also so as long as its nice a smooth it will be fine!!
This picture here is with a 55mm gap next to the mobo (enough for a 30mm rad and 25mm fans) and a 30mm at the front! Obviously the 55mm was meant to be at the front but i have ample space at the front either way!!


Had to make a cut in order for this to fit, and i didnt have any acrylic cutting wheels left! so i had to use a normal wheel! and it left a pretty horrendous cut! but do not fear, sand paper is near


Once again wrapping another piece!


Done very nicely, but can you see the scratch?! im going to rewrap it nearer the end! as with most other parts anyway!


Here it is in place! the scratch and awful cut are pretty noticable but as i said im going to sand a rewrap!!


Also i dont have to worry about having a perfectly straight line as i will be using some right angle to clean it up! Dont know whether to brush the right angle or paint it black! what do you guys think??

Thats all i got up to yesterday! Today i might try and finish all the acrylic work and maybe if i can the front fabrication so i can paint it soon!

Thanks for looking

Ive got quite a bit more wrap so im going to rewrap it! and painting it takes alot of preperation and you can really see imperfections! just alot more stress free this way and cheaper also
