    AMD's Bulldozer Tribute PC - FINISHED!

    I've picked up two sponsors on this project:





    Let's get back to work!

    I picked up this excavator ride on toy at K-Mart for $40



    Of which I removed the base with treads



    And it's a perfect fit!! I just have to touch up the paint.





    Then I got this air vent at Lowes for $6



    It just needed to be cut to fit the right panel CPU intake



    And then a little paint to match

    Very cool idea adding the tracks! My first thought that comes to mind when you were posting about first impressions is the bucket. Good find and idea on the grill for the air vent also. I used the same scythe fan on the CPU cooler on my John Deere build which I still haven't finished yet but will.

    The Bulldozer Tribute is looking great.

    Sad that you'll have this done way before the proccys even come out lol.

    I'm hoping a near finished case will get AMD to give me a free processor

    I used several rivets to attach the case to the treaded base



    But then I realized that I choked off the PSU's air intake



    So, I decided to drill out the holes in the plastic. I can't quite get the drill into all of the holes, but I'll have a really awesome power supply provided by Enermax that will have no trouble getting enough air

    I bought a new 92mm hole saw



    And then cut the second intake





    The hard drive intake is perfect, but the CPU wound up being a bit off



    I added the vent. I still need to bondo the edges and paint the hinges yellow



    I'll still have to paint the other grill yellow too

    I bought this bulldozer shovel off ebay. It came from a Tonka T-9.



    As you see it'll be a perfect fit



    First I trimmed off the excess.....



    .....to make it attach to the front bezel and not the side panel. That way it won't interfere with the sliding door



    I spent a while sanding off the 40 year old paint and rust



    Then gave it a nice smooth coat of new black paint



    Next I'll be cutting the panel striping



    And adding the number 8 to the left panel. What do you think it signifies?

    I added the number eight and some striping to the lefft side



    I got back to finishing the vents, but still need to fix the edges and stripe this side too
