    Prj2 'Downtown'

    Hi all,

    For a long time have been peeking at projects. Finally have been working on one of my own and thought I'd share. Enjoy!

    Started with gutting the case and mocking up the light box.































    Initial mockup a success!

    Got some crafter's foam and started mocking up the outside.





















    Mockup complete. Lighting test looking great!

    Moved the HDD/Power lights to the roof as Aircraft Warning Lights. Re-mounted power & reset buttons on top too.

    Time to take the case apart and paint, paint, paint.

























    Reassembling. Where did all of those pieces go again..?

    Starting to really come together.











    Even got a little mouse car for it.

    Some final touches and some fancy colored lighting pics.

















    Hope you like it.

    Now that the external is mostly taken care of I'm digging into the internal parts. Some stuff arrived this week. Some gear and some parts for better pictures.















    CPU & memory are in the process of getting ordered. Working on a new PSU & some cooling as well. Hoping to have details sooooooooon.

    Very nice!

    So the crafting foam bends fairly easy?

    For the most part yes. Depends upon the thickness. The front of the balconies are about a 2mm thick foam so it bends quite well. The balcony itself is about 8mm, so it's reasonably sturdy. However I did double it up in front just to help ensure it stays in place.
