[Project] Water-Logged {Slowed Until May}

post #1 of 86
Thread Starter 
Due to personal reasons, I will be moving along very slowly until approximately Mid/End of June.. Small updates may occur from time to time ~ Last update today 05/24/08


First off, I'd like to thank all of you that have contributed ideas and given feedback in the thread I started Here.

I'd also like to thank GI_Manny for selling this at just the perfect time!

What this is going to be is an external RAD Box for cooling 1-3 Loops.

So far, for the modding part, the only equipment purchased is the enclosure & 2 Bonneville Heater Cores that fstfrddy is fabricating for me. I need to think about how I am going to make manifolds for this as I'll need some way to "shut-off" flow to barbs I'm not using at that moment.

I'm hoping that a relative "unknown" vendor will be supplying me the pumps & reservoirs, but I'm waiting to hear back from the guy. <--- this is all that I will elaborate on until I do hear a yeah or nay, so please do not ask. If that falls through, i've already been offered a really good deal on 2 - D5s.

Anyways, on to the start of the pictorial section.

First off, this is GI_Manny's rendition of the unit to start with:


I received it today via our mail-carrier who goes maybe 5'2" at most & She was lugging all 38+lbs of this beast lol.

Here's what I received:






Pretty cool device for a company network, I must say!

Here's the Wow Factor:

Before:


After:


Now to show you the beast before I get to work stripping/sanding & cutting:

Bottom; had to remove the feet to get at the retainer screws for the drive bay.




A little prying to get it out, but I was able to fix the bend I made in the case :O .. they must have wrapped this steel case around the drive bay before final assembly. There was also a solid metal piece that was mounted just above the drive bay for rigidity.


Here's the unit as I wanted it :




Thought I'd just document some of the measurements for thoughts in case I had to refer to them again









And finally, I need to decide what to do with the Heater Cores as far as mounting. The doors are going by-bye as there's no reason to keep them.

Vertical:


or Horizontal (room for both on one side?):


The PSU:


Well, that's it for now, tomorrow it's sanding it down, then thinking if it'd be worth it to do some body filler.

Indignity likes chemicals

I picked up some goodies on the way into work today:



Instead of the old tried & true method of elbow grease, I got some citrus stripper, which I've used before for different applications. It worked a charm every time I used it & has a nice Orange smell to it.

I applied a coat to all three pieces at around 7:45am this morning & then proceeded to bag them up so the stripper wouldn't dry out.:





At 5:00pm, it was time to check it out. I opened one bag & proceeded to use a scraper to remove the paint. Well, I must say, I was pretty satisfied & this is going to save a bunch of time. It still took a little bit of effort with the scraper, so I'll leave it sit overnite. I'll still go over the pieces with steel wool & acetone before hitting it with the primer in the first picture. Before I do the primer, I do have to think about doing some body filler, which might make things look better in the end.
