happy happy days
the mesh is bent and installed so with that the frame portion of the cooler box is done!!! There are still a few more jobs to do on the cooler box, the feet, the cover....
any ways, to today action, first off i measured of a cm on each side and bent the mesh against a piece of wood, the other side was a bit trickier but got it done.
and process repeated 4 times
The first one is installed, i had to cut out the mesh on each side at every spacer so the mesh would go down and be level across the entire length. You can see here how the original mesh was a coned shape, how the mesh pattern is not straight.
That was quite a task to get all the cut outs done, as these can have a smaller mesh then the previous ones and it took more time and effort to cut them, as the mesh was bent with 3 cm wide it fits really nice in the gap and is able to hold it self so no mounting required.
after a few hours the final results are quite satisfying
And this is the final result i wanted to achieve with my design of the frame around the cooler box, now the top case is over the cooler box for just a few mm and not 3.5 cm as it was before. I can say im pretty pleased how this frame came out, it was well worth building it despite the the time that it took me.
