    1971 Dodge Super Bee Mod

    As previously stated this Mod is for my In Laws. Since CLOWNED is complete and a present for my mom, I thought my In laws should get a mod too, to replace their 500MHz Gateway. They or my wife have no knowledge of this project. Thus far I only have the following components:

    (1) 80GB Seagate HD
    (1) AMD Opteron 165 (1.8GHz) Dual Core
    (1) Green Aspire X-Discovery Case



    I will act as though the top of the case is the hood. Since I have limited ability in making a good looking scoop, I will be mounting an engine in the top of the case. The engine is the Dodge 426 Hemi. I want to tie in a 20mm fan that once cooled the Northbridge chipset to the crank. I'm hoping it will spin the engine fan without makiung it fall apart, but I won't know till I try.



    Here's some concept pics of what I'm looking to do. I used Google Sketchup and then did a print screen to save them as .jpg's. The concept pics aren't final. I still need to add the stripes to the concept pics.




    And so it begins again. Join me on another adventure.

    Here's pics of the components. I said earlier that I had a Seagate 80GB, but was mistaken; it's a Maxtor 80GB Diamondmax 16.



    Here's the modem.



    And the Opteron



    Today I got the bee decal



    And the SuperBee emblem

    I got the case in the mail and as you can see it's not nearly as bright of a green as the website showed. But that's great, because it's even closer to the color of the car!














    Also, I tested the engine spinning idea with the use of an 80mm fan and it just doesn't have the torque to spin it. There's more ways ahead.

    I took the windowed panel off and disassembled the fan and grill. As you can see they added this nice little piece of mesh too. I won't be reusing the grill, but I do like the mesh.



    Another nice feature is the removable mobo tray.



    The right panel has an awfully convenient place for the "HEMI" window.



    And as you can see I've already begun the painting.





    Here's the paint I'm using. A nice flat black.



    I also cut a small angle to show the bend of the stripe.





    The stripe on the left is done.




    And I sketched out where the HEMI window will go.

    I've been meaning to mention for a long time how nice it is to have this mini spotlight.



    I marked off the width for the right stripe. It has to be identical to the left.



    Then I roughed up the paint....



    ...and slapped it on.



    Looks good, again.

    The motherboard I got is the DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D is mine. I still have to get the Video Card, Memory, Heatsink, DVD drive and the front panel LCD.

    Here's the right side cut.



    I got the logo. It's 6 inches in diameter, the case is 8 inches. The logo here is yellow, but it doesn't matter I just need the black parts. I'll cut away all the yellow and slap it on, then clear coat over it.



    Just like the car.

    I popped out the drive bay covers and removed the front glass.



    Then taped off the front panel



    I painted the bay covers separately



    Then painted the vents. After it dried I made sure that none of the vents was clogged.



    Then removed the paint tape



    Lastly, I slapped the covers back on.

    looks great, I can send you a motor that I know will spin that model motor. A friend went to a city auction and bought 4 police roof light bars, they had bulbs and all the motors that turned the lights around using a worm gear drive so I know it has the torque to turn one of those model motors, let me know if you want one or some pics, its free if you want one. http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b134/thegrimone/DSC00550.jpg
