Subbed, I love desk builds and supercars. Your hand work is amazing.

I watched the video and little confused on the design. Can you explain why you went narrow vs coming out wide again on the right side of desk? Is there something else you plan on adding to get that effect? I am having a hard time seeing your vision based on the top view of the car portrayed in the video.

Thank you so much smile.gif

I did it mostly due to space management, the frame waterloop and some wires need that space. I maby could have done it that way but i was not going for a direct copy. The tank lid also not there on the car but i used that to place a UDB3 hub with memory card readers under the lid, so i can just flip the lid and connect the mouse and keyboard and/or read the camera memory card.
