Thank you! I just discovered some parts are on back order, so I'm having to ask for deadline extension and wait on finishing some stages.



I installed our polished Machined aluminum "Diamond Knurl" pc case feet which are made in HAAS cnc lathe.



The base diameter is 1- 3/4" with height of 1" to elevate the case for improved airflow beneath it.







For internal lighting, I've chosen installed Orange signal lights.



I added one of the factory cable grommet to the top, for all of the wires from Toggle Switch and CPU Load Tachometer. You can swivel and aim these Signal lights in whatever direction you like...



The signals I found are universal fit for Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki, or Quad ATV. Here is the Reseller link on Ebay

Oh well, joy in anticipation, right? Looking great so far.

Progress on the top panel



Progress on the top panel. The carry handle is reflective of the diy welded crash bars on the Derby cars



Top carry handle was fabricated & welded from 3/4" steel tubing



2x 140mm black anodized fan / radiator grill with 15mm spacing, the inserts can be manually rotated.



I've added aluminum Diamond plate for base of the CPU Load Tachometer.



Tachometer is temporarily mounted in it's base for now.....I should have the circuit board from Twizted for it early next week.

Man this looks great, I too am a gearhead and enjoy modded cars as much as modded pc's, so this makes for a great combo.

Awesome to hear Wedge! is your name inspired by Mopar's Max Wedge engine?

Modified the factory bezel of the Tachometer by opening the center, so I can mount the new circuit board (pcb) in the Tach body with the 4 screw holes... The factory pcb had screws in the center...
