Project 8: Front Filter Replacement
Alright, another quick update for today. I've been trying to figure out a good way to replace the front filter because I don't like the airflow patterns it makes.
Look at that, the bottom filter is just about the right length and its already divided into nice sections. Good thing I don't need it!
Here are my cut lines for everything, I'll be cutting the middle section out and gluing it into the front panel intake vents.Cut and fitted (Click to show)
Alright, looking OK so far. Lots of messing around and trimming to do. The last two pictures are the "final" filter for one side.Glue Madness (Click to show)
Here are the pictures of the filters being glued in. I went a little overboard in spots but I wanted to fill any gap I could. The best part is that because of the way the front panel goes on you can see almost none of the glue from the other side. The last picture above is the only place you can see the glue.Outside View (Click to show)
Last, some pictures from the outside looking into the vents. It is very hard to see the glue or filter in person so it will be totally unnoticeable once it is back on the case. It won't keep all the dust out but it should certainly catch most of it.
