Time for update:

The copper plate I satin honed, split the cooler and cut thread.




Next, the fitting followed on board. Fits like a glove.





After all this was done I could start me the tricky part.

The fastening of the battery cover on the expansion tank.

My concept I had to change a little.

The encapsulate hardware airtight will not work, because everything is so close and the Ram SSD and PSU produce too much heat. It is installed only a 80 fan. I think the surge tank of aluminum which thus additionally cools the water passively and 2x 80 Radi should be sufficient to accomplish the cooling.

So weider with the attachment. Through the quick fasteners, it is later possible to quickly open the housing from below to replace filter mat and blow out the housing with compressed air.

From pipe pieces I cut angle.




This I then welded to the reservoir.








Once that was done, I could screw the caps on the battery cover.

Time for an update:

It continued with the support of Radi and pump.

In addition I have first cut and folded sheet metal.





Next, I was able to use the radiator and screw.




To secure the bracket on the expansion tank I welded two brackets and drilled holes.

The support I then secured with clamps and transfer the holes





Then everything together with screws.





To position the new motherboard I have attached rivet threaded bushings as spacers in the tray.





This really all parts of the case are used, I have the drive bracket to the SSD and PSU distributor reconstructed carrier.
In addition I have first shortened the holder.





extend the bracket with a scrap piece and bolted together everything.

Go on
Only the installation of the SSD and PSU mount.





Next, the keys were stuck on the panel.



Then again everything assemble.






In the bracket for the radiator I still have installed the pump and the opening for the supply air is cut down.




After everything is Assembles I could determine the location of the level indicator which is the Fillport simultaneously.

In addition I have a 1/4 "implementation in the side part built and shortened.




Next, I have a pipe cut and cut a window into the side panel.



Now I could pierce the thread for connecting the reservoir and assemble everything.
The implementation I have rotated with the threaded outwardly, so I can disassemble the side panel and open it later without problems.






It continues with the lid.

First, cut a sheet, a window saw out and then bolted to the sides.






On the one side part he stays tightly screwed, the other to solve it with the side part and then comes off well on the hardware. Therefore, one side was provided with riveting.




Next, the lid for the IO slot was manufactured.
In addition I have welded an angle to a piece of sheet metal and screwed to the side panel.








Next we went to the battery cover.

In this I cut slits for the air supply of the radiator.



Then I attached the trim strip on the cover.




Then everything again assemble.





In the next step, I then made the handles.

This I have made from flat profile and pipes.

Only everything weaved together,



then weld,



and grind




Finally threading and the front screw.





Now everything again assemble.












now a few details then it can go to the painting.

very nice detail look forward to the finish

This has been amazing to follow.

I have to ask though it has nothing to do with the build how old is the work table you're working on?
For some reason I imagine it being brand new years ago and then getting the first mark in it or hole or scrape
and being irritated at the scuff up of a new table then fast forwarding to now and look at the beating its taken and the
character it has developed after so many things being built and worked on upon it.

Can't wait to see the finished product of the case, will you do a side by side of the actual radio?
Your welds and grinding are amazing to see the before and after of as well.

@ XAXAS: the countertop is about 10 years old. in time 10- 15 cases was determined relied upon.

Go on.
Next, I painted the keypad and missed a great distressed look.

Radio-284.JPG

In the front, I have made a slot behind the front panel.
Thus, the cables are later performed for the electronics that is installed behind the front panel.

Radio-285.JPG

Then the last connector could be built into the front.

Radio-286.JPG


Next, the Plexi Window was cut and screwed on the lid.

Radio-287.JPG
Radio-288.JPG
Radio-289.JPG

At long last I have the power connector missed a plate. This is the expansion tank bolted so I can disassemble everything into its component parts.

Radio-291.JPG
Radio-292.JPG
Radio-293.JPG

Thus, the metal is complete.

The anodizing I remove with pipe cleaners. Dur I still have my BW Gas Mask.

After the paint was dry I put the front together and measured the fields for the label.

Radio-319.JPG

With Plotter and Software, I then created and cut the label.

Radio-321.JPG
Radio-320.JPG

Damn small font.

Radio-322.JPG
Radio-323.JPG

Then, the front was stuck.

Radio-323.JPG
Radio-325.JPG

The panel also got then its label

Finish is the front.

the window I wanted to embellish a little.

So I made a pumice engraved on plexi.

For this I have downloaded the font and Battelfield nen sniper outline and created a template for cutting plotter.

Radio-334.JPG
Radio-335.JPG

The finish plexi

It continues with the electrical system.

First I glued the two displays on the panel.

Radio-360.JPG

Since the entire cable must through the small slot in the shutter I have all the cable cut and soldered new plug.

Radio-361.JPG

Then it was on to the power supply.

shorten any cables equipped with black connectors and later visible cable sleeving.

Radio-362.JPG
Radio-363.JPG

The rotary switch I have turned to the power switch, and glued the IR receiver.
