Now that I look at the hot glue job, it gives it the damaged look like a partially damaged nuclear power plant. It's all cool now.

Today, I'm about to go on an all out mission for 2 days.
As usual, here are the parts





First, I'll be dealing with the back part

here's the piece from last monday

Stick it here

And I'll be using the permanent glue by Dunlop

Sanding the acrylic for better grip

done

rinse it to remove excess dust

wipe it

here goes nothing

done....

I'll let it dry up first

while I glue the wood side

Here we go, nicely done



few minutes later, both of them are now half dried


let's hope they stick

and let gravity do the following work


hey hey hey, there's a new player, aluminum

my trusty tool box

let's mark 26 cm on the aluminum piece, a little bit more higher than the original height of the case
draw the line


lets cut it

done

lets mold the aluminum piece as same as the front panel.


it fits, but need something in the middle to support it


I know, those leftover acrylic will do the job

I'll mark the aluminum same as the emerged block


done, draw the line


lets start cuttin



btw, here's the acrylic I stick just now

fits nicely and doesn't come off

so, some time, since I updated, so lets continue
so here's a piece of zinc which I marked on it

now, since the height of the thing is approx 21cm, I'll be doing 26cm

Picked a spot to put down the spade
drew 2 lines

cut it out

I randomly picked a spot to bend the zinc

bendy bendy

now for the harder part, bending a small piece....
with the help of a pair of pliers

there we go, nice and clean

stick the small bent piece into one of the holes on the thing
and it fits like a charm

still, there seems to be 2 holes on both side of the piece, now what? Just cut a piece as same as the side. But how? One cheap trick, spray paint the side on a piece of zinc and cut it



a few minutes passed and the paint has dried up in the sun, ready to cut.


same technique with the other side and


after fitting with the main piece, there is still leftovers which means I can stick it to the main piece very easily

drew a v shape

and cut it out

bend the cut section


fits perfectly now

draw lines for cutting out excess sides

walaa

still some excess sides on the top


mark it and cut it



they went for a rinse and now sunbathing

everything dried up

stick the main piece back and hot glue it

nice

so I sticked the 2 pieces on the main piece with the same technique used in the one before with the Dunlop glue and I couldn't show it to you guys/gals as I only have a pair of hands. Sorry

after

since its a bit shaky, I use those leftover bezels

and bend it to fit the hole inside





cut it in half

and bend it to fit


so here's the unstable looking housing

again , with the same technique



let them dry for a while and fit them in there



some time later......




so here's the cutting( abandoned) i did for the first time and it didn't worked out really well

anyways, i'll cut it and see what happens.......

well, ain't as bad as I thought...

hmm......bruises

sandpaper to the rescue then

well, I'm gonna try sticking on the panel

sanded the side panel to stick it


same technique....



some time later....


MOAR weight !!

nice and stable

add a little scratch/scuffed texture on the side and the middle part of the acrylic

there you go, a nice looking side panel with windows ROLF


ok, its time for me to take a rest, since I've been doing this since the morning till evening. C ya, and stay tuned tomorrow for more
