Thanx man !


I mounted both cases on top of each other with construction kit.
Next step: the front of the base.
First I'm mounting the sidepanels to both Elite cases.
These will form the base for the new front.


Here they are screwed on, and still untouched.


Marking where the front will come.


This time I didnt use my beloved Vikurene plate but FOREX aka hardfoam plate.
It is a lot lighter then Vikurene, but still sturdy and easy to cut.
First I layed out my main 'blueprint'.


Tried to make use of the plate as efficient as possible.


Cut the parts out with an aluminium lineaal and a fresh new scalple blade.


One of the "crown" parts in paper.


And the same part in Forex.


If I dont cut all the way through the plastic I can bend it a bit.


Just to give a glimpse with the Forex parts.


Started cutting it up, never afraid of cutting too little
These parts wil support the new frontpanel, but on some place I need to get deeper inside the case.
Everything in between is nice, smooth and semi-transparant.


Mounted them again, deburred and ready for a layer of construction kit.


In the top right corner I used a little piece of the original sidepanel and stuck it to the back of the new frontpanel.


All is now mounted with heavyduty construction kit. Now it needs to dry thoroughly.

Sounds interesting.

After is settled, the panel now looks like this: Front.


And the back. Oh and that little cut I made, after I finished you wont see anything of it anymore. Trust me.


Mounted on the cases.


There you go, now use the 'blueprint' again for the markings.


To give the case much clearer 3D dimensions, I am using this foamplate to enhance the frontpanels.


This foamplate is almost 20 mm thick. (about 5/6 inch ?)


Let me show you a specific piece why I use this foam: by using it I can now bend the Forex plates much further back then otherwise.


These three pieces make up the most protruding parts of the front


Now it need to dry thouroughly again before the next step.


(seems like most of my modding time is waiting for kit to dry )

This was where the I/O shield used to be.


Now its quite a bit up and inwards.


Mounted it back on with aluminium rivets.


Its solid again. Now where did i put that I/O shield.... :S


Well, obviously it doesnt fit very nice anymore now.


Looks like a piece of Swiss cheese.


Lets get that fixed now, shall we ?

First one is the largest piece.


Mounted with constructionkit.


Round the corner passed the PCI slots.


This aluminium ACRyan plate has protective layers on both sides. It is also very easy cut with metal scissors.


Matt black when removed.


Getting back to the front, these three pieces have cured enough.


On several sides there will come bevelled edges towards the front.
First measure it all and cut to size.




Cut to fit for all three pieces.


Made all sides nicely bevelled.


This is how they are attached

GRIN @ allikat

PSU
This old PSU is the designated victim to give this mod some power.


Here it sits in the case below.


Where it shows through the big hole, I marked the outerlid to be dremeled away.


Looks like this.


Lets do something fun with it.


These fluorescent gel-pens I also used in my R2-D2 casemod.


Under a blacklight, you see the first 5 pens light up dramatically.


Under normal lightning.


And with a UV blacklight.


These are so called "cordsets" that I 'saved' from the scraphead at my work. Allready runs 5 wires through them !
Attach a molex and were good to go !


I have been 'collecting' lots more during my buildup time..... e.g. cordset kabels, shower hoses, hydraulic hoses en fiber cables.


Marking the old PSU where the holes would sit best.


Drilling the holes in various sizes.


Example of what it going to look like.


Now attach them sturdy to the frame and run the wires through.
