    [Project] Midnight Sparkle

    Hey there guys,

    Im back again with another mod, This is Midnight sparkle that i am doing for my girlfriends new computer.

    as usual its a scratch build.

    Here is the initial design which changes a bit as you will see very soon(im not doing another version you can see in the pics)


    I started off this long day of modding by clearing stuff a bit so that i have room to mod again




    And on with the modding
    (sorry for the blurry pic...)
    I started by cutting apart my old case to give me a mobo tray and a template for the psu.


    mobo tray cut down


    and even more


    psu template



    I then cut the 2 bits of alu that i need for the main body of the mod



    and bent the longer bit to shape


    here it is with the side panel sitting on it


    and mounted


    front and back marked out


    and cut


    back marked for cutting


    cut


    mobo tray mounted




    Window cut


    and filed


    and mounted back on the case


    Acrylic for the window marked ready for cutting


    and placed on the outside of the case


    i then marked the alu angle ready for cutting into the joints


    and cut


    I then started work on the case feet


    and glued


    i didnt get to file, sand and polish them today but i will get that done tomorrow and then i need to order more bolts and get some more rivets tomorrow so that i can get this done. this will be one very quick mod butttt i did work on this from about 10:00-18:30 with a 1 hour break in the middle hence why i got a lot done

    and just to give you guys some perspective of size this is smaller than the mobo section on modularis

    Check in tomorrow

    Clear and black, that's an interesting combo, I can't wait to see how they turn out. Are you going to light them Josh or just leave as is?

    On with the next update

    Here is the slot loading dvd drive that i will be using in this case for my girlfriend with the adapder and mounting system attached



    I went over to my local screwfix and picked up some bolts and rivets



    I then got the back mounted on to the case


    Then the window


    I then got around to mounting the dvd drive i clamped the support on the outside and drilled through


    And mounted



    Front cut for the dvd drive



    And mounted


    All that is left to do now is mount the feet cut a fan hole in the front and maybe make a fangrill and then sort out mounting for the laptop hdd and drill the hole for the vandal resistant switch then its done
