now for the good stuff.
Whats that? a fresh sheet of Aluminum?
set up to cut off the part I need:
actually used the whole length:
got all my cuts marked (some cut) and pilot holes drilled (layout should look familiar):
step bit to 5/8" :
drilled rounds into the corners so it would be nice and clean:
busted out the snake for maximum control.
ready to test my steady hands:
cut inward a little at first just to get it clear:
then trimmed it back to flush with the holes:
and an hour of edge sanding later:
as always I went over the edges with black sharpie, it really makes a huge difference in how clean the cuts look(so yea, it is like cheating
and set in place real quick:
I was amazed at how well everything lined up, all the screw holes matched up perfect and the edges where spot on, no extra room:
back to drilling into the case. had to add mount holes for the bottom panel assembly:
the forward one:
set in place (not screwed in yet):
it is pretty tricky getting this in there, it is a very tight fit:
getting everything screwed in:
got the bottom ones in too:
the underside of the new floor isn't as pretty, but no one will ever see it once this is all together:
put the PSU plate back on with those nice screws:
lookin sexxxy (in computer terms at least):
it all lines up nice and smooth now that it is mounted:
the new floor pulls down nice and tight against the old one, looks like the old one is just a nice piece of red trim:
and thats what I have for today.
