Back with another update!
Deadline got shortened a bit so i didn't have time to do any updates, but on the upside i can finish the build log now.
After trying a quick assembly i realized that the suspension and tires were too soft. I filled the "hollow" tires with some stiff foam and upgraded the springs with some "heavy" duty ones i found in the shops.
Now it sits straight and no flat tires.
Made a bracket for the PSU, a bit rough looking but cleaning all bits at once when i know everything fits.
Time to make the PSU shroud/Radiator holder
Milled some slots and some grooves for easier bending
A bit of bending
Turned out pretty good
Next up is to drill holes and tap the sides of the aluminum frame. Decided to make a template of lexan so i could drill all holes quickly and get them perfectly in the middle.
After a lot of cleaning it was time to powder coat all the aluminum. Just love the black texture on the parts.
Cabin painted (sorry for the crappy photo)
Let the assembly begin!
Sanded the acrylic with 1200grit paper. Didn't want it completely see through and i didn't wanna see the scratches, turned out ok
Tail lights installed
IO panel test fit
Forgot to take pictures on painting the gpu but here it is in all its glory (titan black)
I found three M3 holes on the back of the GPU, so it was easy to make a bracket for it so it hovers over the motherboard.
Not much left now
Everything fits nicely, Only one dvi port that's not really usable. I only ever use one monitor so not really an issue. I didn't wanna raise the whole structure just for the dvi port.
Running nice and cool
Had to take it outside
If you happen to be at Computex be sure to check it out over at Asus!
Thx for looking!
