I hope you will like the project and the work I'm doing! Ok,lets start modding
First the tools. Variety of hand and power tools
The phanteks case which I purchased few months ago.
I decide to replace most of the rivets with m4 screws
Drive bay cage
This time I'm dealing with perspex acrylic.
This button head screws are just temporary,before I tap the holes for countersink screws.
Here is the reservoir bracket almost done.I have something in mind to cut in the acrylic I'm not planing any laser cutting, everything will be done by hand.
Cutting the acrylic plate
Usual tools for my mod
And what I'm going to cut
One peace down
One blade also down
But then,when I was filing and polishing disaster happened:mad:
Back from point A
This time I was more careful
This attempt was more successful
Still need to tap the holes for the screws.
This time I'm cutting aluminium. I will replace the phanteks plate with my own.Here we go
And on the case. Still need to be painted but painting will come later
It is time for painting
Firs task is to clean the rads
Spray paint and primers
Main colour, of-course Blue
But fluorescent blue.Glows really nice under UV light.
Few coats of white primer
I have to say,that this blue colour is really nice Still many parts need sanding and painting.Here is some progress on that direction
Making of silver kill coil
.999 pure silver
And one more closer
Firs the tools,usual ones for my project
The silver is very hard after the rolling mill,so need to become softer.For that reason one more tool is added
Even more filing
One side ready,marking the other one
Time for sanding.I will start with 600 up to 2500.Reason for that is,silver is very hard to polish.Especially the pure silver is almost mission impossible , always goes back to his original colour.
Sanding with 2500 sandpaper by hand
And the final product
Fans painted ,so here's the photos
And mounted on the rads
Some goodies Beautiful fittings from NANOXIA,and Darkside UV led strips.
The case start getting shape. I manage to install the rads,the pump plate and some of the led strips. Hope you like it
Bigger update will be soon Stay tuned
