Today I got around to finishing sanding the outside of the case. I took a look at the inside and it seems very difficult to get into some areas so I might as well leave put a coat of primer and then paint it. I will be painting and uploading some pics. I can't wait to be done and see how it turns out.

Resuming the work. More sanding and cleaning. And I still have no clue as in what to do with the front. So far I am thinking about leaving the way it is but a part of me says no, do something

Hello everyone. So I got the case sanded, well the parts that I could do, and I put it back together. First, I had to strip the right side panel (I forgot to do that before) then sanded the inside of it.






The case out together

The I decided to try and fit the bottom radiator and discovered that the front intake fan mount was blocking the access to the screw hole and offsetting the rad guard. This means I will have to get rid of one intake fan to access rad mounting holes.

Solved the issue created by the front fan mounting mechanism


And this is what I am using to mount the PSU. Not done working on it yet (well almost).

If you get a mid plate fabbed up it could be ok.

I intend to make one, it would be that hard. I also would have to cut the MB tray and stabilise using some rods.

Throw that idea out of the window because it will not work due to the cut I made for the window (pun intended) on the left side panel. Simply, to make this work would require me to raise the rad 3 inches from the case floor which means the mid plate might interfere with the MB tray. Whew!

Bring that TJ07 idea back !After a lot of thinking, I have decided that I will go with the TJ07 look. I will switch the panels , the current window panel will become the right side panel and the right side panel will become left side panel. I will be cutting the "new" left side panel to make room for the rad guard and window. Yes, I am going crazy here but I love it. I can't wait to put my dremel and jigsaw to work again
