so i decided you guys have been good enough for the first part of my update
you guys saw the SSD already (and yes.. the stickers ARE crooked
) but where to put it?
how about right their?
i like it
any way. the problem with that is that the hole i cut initaly was WAY too small and was making the SATA power cable for that and the optical drive was getting pulled and rubbing (and would eventually cut)
so i needed to make it bigger
but first. DINNER TIME!
pancakes and bacon
but the bacon was gone before i left the kitchen and that is 100% real maple syrup made buy the guy next door.... sooooooo goooood
so i cut the whole bigger and drilled holes for screws to go into the face mounting holes (their are 2 down below too)
that works... nicely actually. sure the hole is a bit over sized but that's not that huge of a deal as it will likely be covered some how. not sure yet.
any way. on to the complicated part of the night
i really wasn't happy with the false floor i made before and that wouldn't have worked with my planed WC lay out any way. so that means its time to make a new one
i pulled out the est of my stainless that i made the first one out of and started drawing lines and measuring and drawing and measuring again.
made the first couple cuts and took the bending brake out
well that is my new false floor
i wanted a radius the full length (not a huge fan of sharp edges on this sort of thing) so i bent it strait and cut a triangle out of center and bent the face in. it took quite a bit of trimming but eventually it got to where you see it.
i think it turned out VERY well.. im actually surprised by it
this is where the welding comes in
im going to tack the back side to hold it together. and maybe run a bead the full length in side if the guy that usually does the welding at work is in and i can get him to help me (im no good at welding more than a tack with the MIG
but yea.. thats what i have
i hope it was worth the weight. i hope to have more tomorrow
