Ordered the 4-position key switch from Watson's Streetworks. Super fast shipping, only took 2 days from New Hampshire to CA.
Image

Drilled a 3/4" mounting hole in the front faceplate
Image

And did a quick pre-fit to see how it looks.
Image

Looks pretty good, however, if I can find a better looking finish nut without the knurled sides, I'll swap this one out. But it will suffice for now.

I'm hoping to get the whole front bezel assembled and mounted on the case this weekend, and get the top panel to fit over it. This has been one of the most difficult parts of the build because the top front of the case is where everything meets, and is the most visible, so it has to line up perfectly. Not to mention I'm creating both the top panel and front bezel completely from scratch, which compounds the situation. I predict more trial fits in my near future! :)

Making more headway on the top panel and its mesh. I wanted to continue the lines from the front grill across the top, so I added some 1/8" aluminum bar to the top of the mesh piece.
Image

After cutting the bars to length, I proceeded to bend them to match the back curve of the mesh. Looking around the garage, I found a suitable pipe to bend the bar around.
Image

The bend in the mesh is not a perfect circular curve, so I just tweaked the bends until they matched up perfectly. Here's the first bar.
Image

And here are the rest of the pieces for the back, propped up on the mesh for a quick pic.
Image

Just had three more easy straight pieces to make for the center.
Image

Once all the pieces were made and the ends rounded, it was time to mount them to the mesh. These bars being only 1/8" thick, I had to use very small 2/56 size screws to fasten them down. So out came the 2/56 tap! A small piece of tape on the tap served as my depth gauge so I wouldn't go too far and bottom out. These taps are quite brittle and can break easily.
Image

And the resulting tapped hole...
Image

I'm using these tiny screws that have a large head and 1/8" shank, which allow me to use a piece of black acrylic behind the mesh as a backing.
Image

Got all the bars tapped and fastened to the mesh.
Image

Looks like the back pieces need a little adjustment.
Image

Threw the top main bars on to see how it looks.
Image

And a shot from the front. I'll need to secure the front part of the mesh down onto the panel so it doesn't stick up like this. The back part will be secured by the main bars themselves since the ends go through the mesh.
Image

Keep in mind this will look quite different when it's done. The 1/8" aluminum bars will be chromed and the mesh itself will be black, to mimic the look of the front. I'm debating whether to chrome the larger main bars as well, or paint them the same color as the rest of the case. Might make the smaller bars stand out more that way.

Well, I didn't get to the primer stage, but I did get the top panel and front bezel to play nice together. So I was able to assemble the entire case and get a shot to see how it looks so far.

Image

A closer up shot of the front bezel featuring the 7" touch screen LCD, Lamptron Touch fan controller, and ignition key switch. :)
Image

So I guess this week will consist of mainly bodywork and smoothing out the top panel. I may get some time in on the right side door as well.

It's time for Bods-Mods Monday Morning Update... The only proven cure to the case of the Mondays!

I was able to get the windowed side panel skinned with fiberglass over the weekend, and the other side scoop attached as well. Before laying down the fiberglass though, I needed to get the window opening dialed in. But before doing that, I had to add pieces to fill in all the open areas on the back side.

I want the inside to be totally smooth, so I began adding thin pieces of ABS scavenged from the other door's webbing. These pieces were the perfect thickness to fill in the depression where the door hinge used to be.
Image

I also cut out a couple pieces to fill in the door handle cavities. Since they are on the bottom now, there is no reason to keep them.
Image

I cut the pieces from the other door, just above the holes, so they had the same bends. I beveled the edges so they sat right in.
Image

...and glued them down.
Image

Another section around the window had to be filled in as well.
Image

Once these pieces were glued in place, I could fill in the in-between areas with more foam.
Image

Once I started thinking about the side scoop positioning and where the hole would be, I realized I didn't really need to cover up one of the handle cavities, as it would be cut away. Oh well.
Image

Cut out the hole with my trusty jig saw.
Image

The front side, after filling in all the remaining voids with more foam. I also rounded the window edges with my router, using a 3/8" round-over bit.
Image

I then cut out a piece of fiberglass cloth to fit.
Image

Couldn't pause to get any pics during the lay-up process, so here is the result. I mixed up a batch of resin and used a thickener so it wouldn't run down into the foam too much (spray foam isn't very dense and leaves some bubbles). I taped a piece of cardboard in the window area to give myself an edge to later place the clear window up against.
Image

After laying down the cloth, I used the remaining thickened resin to saturate all areas, then Mixed up a smaller batch of resin with a curing agent as a top coat. Once that was on, I set the scoop in place, added more thickener to the remaining resin and used it to reinforce the joint.
Image

After about an hour, I came back to the door and shaved off all the excess around the edges with a utility knife. The resin hadn't cured fully, so it was relatively easy to trim at this point.
Image

I hung the door on the case to see how it looked. It's hard to tell in pics since the resin is transparent, but it's pretty flat, There are a couple ripples here and there, but that will be taken care of with sanding and adding a bit of filler to flatten it all out.
Image

And with that, I think that is the last bit of fiberglassing I will have to do on this case. I still have one more panel to fabricate, but I will be using aluminum sheet for that (the back panel). Getting closer to starting work on the internals. Can't wait!

Dang, another two months have just flown by again. Can't seem to stay consistent on this project, as other things keep taking precedence. Just gotta continue pluggin away at it as time allows, and it will get done eventually. :)

Anyway, I finally accumulated enough pics to warrant an update. I've been working on this wc manifold since like February, and it's gone through numerous re-designs to get to it's current state. What started out as a simple laminated piece is now a multi-section, multi-directional part incorporating rigid acrylic tubing and stainless steel braided lines!

But let's start with the rigid tubing. Primochill recently came out with a whole line of rigid acrylic tubing, and I just had to work it into this build somehow. So I got some of the amber tubes with the special 1/2" rigid fittings.
Image

They also included a piece of the silicone rubber hose that fits into the tube to aid in the heat bending process. I made a quick and dirty bending jig that enabled me to get any 90° radius I need, using whatever pipe or cylinder I may have on hand.
Image

For the tighter bends, I made a helper mold to keep the tube from flattening out.
Image

About a week after getting the regular fittings, Primochill announced their new badass Revolver style fittings, so I had to grab them..
Image

Getting the hang of heat-bending.
Image

After a few bends, it became apparent that I would have to finish gluing the manifold together so I could get more accurate measurements between it and the motherboard blocks. So I turned my attention onto that.
Image

The manifold accommodates two separate loops.. One for the motherboard blocks, and one for the video cards. The manifold will replace the SLI adapters from EVGA's Hydro Copper blocks, so I took measurements from them and transferred the holes.
Image

Here are the two pieces, after much alterations and revisions. The smaller section on top will mount directly to the hydro copper blocks and will fit into a notch in the larger part, which will be mounted vertically next to the first video card.
Image

They fit together like so...
Image

The steel braided lines are the main feeds to and from the pump, rads, etc... via quick disconnects that will pass through the fiberglass panel.
Image

Image

As a final shot, I fitted the rigid tubing into the manifold.
Image

Once I finalize the rigid tubing and everything fits perfectly, I will mount the quick disconnects into the fiberglass panel. Then I can cut the steel braid to length and finish them off with the same chrome hose ends. Hoping to tackle that this week, and then I can start plumbing out the back side.

Crap, another month gone by! I've been making progress here and there, but mainly on the back side and mounting things like the lower radiator and pumps. So let's get to it!

First thing I needed to do was make a sub-floor. This cleans up the area and allows for some stealthy cable management.
Image

I cut the floor to fit, then added various holes for mounting and cable access.
Image

I also installed a pass-through fitting from Koolance, to serve as a drain for the WC system.
Image

Here's a shot from below. I added a 45º elbow to clear the side bezel.
Image

A close-up shot of the floor with drain hole.
Image

Now that the floor was done, I could move onto the mounting system for the lower radiator. I wanted something simple, yet stealthy. So I fabricated some aluminum posts that make use of the fan's mounting screws.
Image

A closer up view shows the 3/16" tube that runs through the aluminum post. It's a pretty tight fit, so it doesn't float.
Image

With the radiator in place, you can't really see the posts at first glance.
Image

The posts go through the floor and fasten to the bottom panel with standard 6-32 case screws.
Image

I made sure to include some cable access holes in between the fans on each side of the rad.
Image

They travel under the floor to the front corner, where the cables will come up to the Lamptron Touch fan controller. I'll need to get (or make) a 3pin 4-way splitter to complete the connection.
Image

Next up will be the pump mounting, and some pipe bending. Stay tuned!

Ok, time to mount the EK pump top and D5 pumps, however, I did not want to use conventional bracketry. Keeping with the automotive theme, I looked at various oil system setups and noticed how there was a striking resemblance to a dual oil filter system. So I devised a mounting method that replicates that look.

Of course I had to incorporate the requisite amount of chrome, so I found the perfect donor item for the pump covers: a 2 1/2" chrome exhaust tip! :D I wasted no time cutting it up into two equal lengths.
Image

For the actual mounting, I used a piece of left-over 3/8" acrylic, cut it in half and drilled/tapped some holes.
Image

They fit snuggly inside the covers. Some tiny flush-mount screws hold them in place.
Image

The covers fit loosely over the pumps, so I had to add some o-rings to take up the extra space.
Image

Image

I cut slots into the sub-floor so the acrylic mounts would slide right in. They're secured to the bottom panel with a couple case screws.
Image

Image

So with the lower rad and pumps mounted, I could finally start running some stainless steel tubing! Using the bender is a bit tricky, but after a few practice bends, I got the hang of it.
Image

A pipe cutter is way better than a hack saw or dremel for cutting tubing. Well worth the money!
Image

This is the lower drain pipe going from rad to drain.
Image

Pipe in place. I'm not tightening anything down just yet, since I still have much to do before final assembly.
Image

Next piece was the reservoir-pump feed line, which is just a simple 90º bend.
Image

Another angle showing both pieces. I'm liking the look so far!
Image

The next pieces will be a bit more challenging, with compound bends on the longer runs. Should be fun!

Ok, time for another update! Today I'll show you what I did to this poor power supply lol. As I mentioned on Facebook, I was not phased by the little sticker covering up one of the screw holes, put there by some dude named Warren T Void. :P

Upon removing the cover, I proceeded to cut pretty much the whole top and end away. Since the case has rounded corners, I needed to do the same to the PSU cover in order for it to fit as close as possible. I'm also replacing the stock 130mm fan with a 140mm NZXT orange led fan, which will be mounted directly to the back panel.
Image

The power switch and plug will be relocated to a custom IO panel, so I cut the main wires and extended them.
Image

Here's the power switch/plug cluster that I de-soldered from the main wires.
Image

It will be re-soldered to the extensions once I know how long they need to be. I won't know that until I get the switch and plug mounted to the new IO panel.
Image

I routed the extension wires through the top of the PSU, insulating the hole with a rubber grommet.
Image

Now that the cover has been thoroughly transmorgrified, I placed it back onto the psu. (Warren is going to be soooo pissed!)
Image

To secure the PSU vertically in place, I whipped up a couple aluminum brackets. The PSU will rest on this one across the bottom.
Image

A shot of the bottom bracket from underneath...
Image

... and with the PSU mounted..
Image

Here's the top bracket, mounted for a test fit. You can also see how the PSU matches the rounded corners.
Image

In order for the 140mm fan to fit, I had to notch the top bracket just a little.
Image

I've also been working constantly on the back panel for the last couple months. It's taken a while, but it's finally starting to come together. If all goes well, I will be able to show that progress right after the new year. :)

Wow, a reply! Thanks for the feedback Mrmarrero! :)

Hey guys, I'm back again with some progress on the back panel. Originally I wasn't going to do much to it, but it quickly became clear it would be easier to just create a whole new panel, rather than trying to modify the stock one.

Here's a pic I took a while ago, cutting the stock rear panel away. I think I did this just prior to working on the suicide door and hinges.
Image

Using 1/8" acrylic sheet, I made the center piece along with two vertical pieces, a top mounting piece, and a curved piece on the bottom. Here I'm gluing the two vertical pieces at an angle to match up with the side panels.
Image

I made a couple fan mounts out of 1/4" acrylic that also serve as cross braces to give the panel some rigidity.
Image

Trying the panel on the case, checking for fit and marking positions for fans, fillport, and the new IO panel.
Image

Back panel trimmed, glued, reinforced, and fans mounted.
Image

For the fillport, I was going to do something like those flip-up fuel doors on Dodge Daytonas, but I thought a hide-away system would be more appropriate for a custom rod theme. So I drew up a quick model in Sketchup...
Image

The lid will continue the design of the top panel, with the aluminum bars ending in a half circle. Custom hinges will allow the lid to raise up over the bars on the top panel, revealing the fillport underneath.
Image

I grabbed some pieces of acrylic from my scrap bin and started making the pieces for the base.
Image

When assembled, they will stack up like this:
Image

And top view:
Image

Using acrylic cement, I started gluing the pieces up.
Image

While that was setting up, I proceeded to make the lid, cutting the mesh, trim ring, and bending the aluminum bars.
Image

I'm thinking I will use my alumiweld brazing rods to solder the bars to the mesh, rather than tapping/screwing them from underneath. Either way, they will look like this when done:
Image

Image

Preparing the back panel for the fillport...
Image

Fillport set in place for a test fit..
Image

..and with lid.
Image

Now I have to tackle the hinges next. Looks like I'll have to modify the design a bit to accommodate the mesh, but that shouldn't take too long.

Thanks for reading, 'til next time!

Got more progress done on the fillport area of the back panel..

I made the hinge for the fillport cover, first designing it in Sketchup, then printing it out 1:1, taping it onto the aluminum piece, scoring the cut lines, and cutting it out.
Image

Then I proceeded to bend the ends and the center 90º.
Image

The result:
Image

I then tack-welded it to the mesh cover.
Image

The outer trim piece got some flush-mount alan screws.

Holes drilled and chamfered..
Image

Subsequent holes drilled and tapped into the acrylic..
Image

Screws in...
Image


Then I decided to do the same circular bar treatment to the PSU fan grill. So after drawing it out and taking measurements between bars, I found/made up some circles with the specified diameters.
Image

Bending the alu bar around the wood blocks..
Image

All bars bent..
Image

Next will be bending the bottoms of the bars to follow the curve of the back panel, so they travel down and under the case.

More stainless hard line goodness...

This time I decided to try filling the pipe with sand before bending, to see if that would help keep the tube more rounded in the curves. It wasn't bad before, but it was noticeable.
Image

Taped the ends off and laid it onto the heater for a couple minutes to warm it up.
Image

Bending..
Image

45º bend came out nice, just like my test wire.
Image

My test wire is actually just solder lol. But it's perfect for finding the correct bends and transferring them to the pipe, because it's very soft and malleable, and holds its shape.
Image

Here's all the pipe runs bent..
Image

And here are some shots with the pipes in place..
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Looking forward to seeing all these pipes in their finished, chrome state!

Ok, back to the seemingly never-ending work on the back panel...

Slow progress is slow...

After looking at my pipe-bending handiwork, something didn't quite look right to me. Took me a while to pin-point it, but I think I found the culprit. It was the longest piece of stainless in the back. So I decided to re-do it, to give the QDC's a bit more breathing room so-to-speak. I didn't really like the vertical pipe's close proximity to the fittings, so I added a few slight bends to give them a bit wider berth. This just looks better to me now.
Image

Ok now that I can sleep nights once again, I have more back panel progress to show...

A new IO plate has been forged! It all started in Sketchup, laying out all the ports plus power plug and PSU on/off switch. Printed it out 1:1, and taped it to a piece of aluminum scrap.
Image

Took the exacto knife to it and traced all the ports.
Image

With the aluminum plate scored, I could start drilling holes and scrolling the ports. First DVI port cut out.
Image

All ports scrolled and filed. Still have to round the edges & sand.
Image

With all the ports cut out, I could transfer those areas to the back panel to be cut out as well.
Image

IO plate in position, with ends bent to match the back panel.
Image

Behind the scenes shot of fitting the extensions, adapters, & PSU parts.
Image

I have to work up some sort of retaining piece to hold all the cables in place, so that they stay perfectly aligned with the IO plate cutouts. Then I'll permanently affix them to the back panel. Maybe a solid block of epoxy putty?

Jumping back onto the lower back panel to finish off the PSU fan grill area.

I last left off with bending the 1/8" aluminum bars to match the hinged fillport door up top. Here I cut out the portion of the panel that will be replaced with mesh.
Image

Speaking of mesh, here it is, with curve to fit the rounded corner at the bottom of the panel.
Image

Mesh fit into cutout area of panel.
Image

And here are the alu bars with the ends bent to follow the lower curve. I also made end caps to join the ends and complete the design.
Image

I clamped them all together with the correct spacing and marked the underside for screw holes.
Image

In between bouts of drilling/tapping 2-56 holes in the 1/8" alu bars, I made the bottom acrylic piece that will pick up the two PSU mounting screws.
Image

Finally, with all the mounting screw holes done, I could fasten the bars down.
Image

And with the lower end caps in place. Still needs some adjustment here and there, and I will take care of that later.
Image

Lastly, an overall shot of the back panel in its present state. Inching dangerously close to being done methinks!

Was a beautiful weekend, so I took this opportunity to take care of an issue I had with the fiberglass panel that's been bugging me ever since I switched motherboards. I originally designed the panel to accommodate the EVGA X79 FTW, but when I exchanged that for the X79 Dark, the graphics cards did not line up with the cutout anymore. Slot #1 is positioned differently, so now the first card interferes with the edge of the cutout. And widening the cutout didn't solve the visual problem.

As you can see here, the card goes past the "shock tower" of the panel and just looks like a mistake. It's been driving me nuts, so I gotta fix it!
Image

Image

Image

This close-up shot shows that the HDMI ports are inaccessible.
Image

Thanks to the forgiving nature of fiberglass, this is a relatively easy fix. I cut out the corner of the shock tower on both sides...
Image

Then cut 5/8" off the right side and put it over on the left to fill the gap, effectively moving the corner over and widening the towers. I temporarily tape it all together from the back.
Image

Then I tape it from the front and block it so the pieces stay flat.
Image

Image

Then I removed the back tape and proceeded to fill in the gaps with thickened resin. After a few hours of curing, I removed the blocks and tape.
Image

Everything is filled in for the most part, and level with the rest of the surface. All I need to do now is apply a bit of bondo filler and sand smooth.
Image

A slight set-back, but well worth the effort. My OCD is once again back down to nominal levels.
