    MAD MAX / FURY ROAD CASE MOD

    Hi everyone, My apologies for the lack of updates. I've had to start another project build for a client. Paying gigs keep the lights on, so Max will need to temporarily park the Falcon. I may bring it out and share a new update for mental break if time allows. I will be starting a worklog for this new build once the NDA is lifted, I think it will be a real spectacle once it's finished.

    Painted the engine and injector air scoop silver alum

    Out of curiosity I grabbed this Vertical GPU bracket to see how the GPU looks in front of the Enermax chassis. Hmmmmm

    As promised, I'm ditching the scoop on the scale V8 and making the Scott Superslot fuel injector scoop from Max's V8. I started by makingthe top and bottom portions from acrylic, but getting the 45 angle degree bend from acrylic is "challenging" without the acrylic warping. I ditched that idea and made another bottom half from 20 gauge sheet metal. Which reminded me I really need a new bending brake. The two pieces are joined together with Scotchweld DP-190 epoxy. I need to make the base next, and maybe add the fuel lines.

    Do you guys keep the factory fans you pull from cases? I honestly ask myself why I keep them?

    yesterday, I found time to make mounting bracket from 20 gauge steel for the 80mm radiator

    Cutting opening for the radiator lines, finishing edges with Black u-channel molding trim

    The Max mod is consuming my bench space, haha. Last night I cut opening in the 5.25 bay to route the tubing from the 80mm radiator

    I'm going to cut the top panel again and rotate the 80mm radiator 90 degrees, so the radiator is no longer protruding so high. I stumbled upon this hydraulic shock in my junk drawer and used it as support for the scale engine. I may replace it with something else if/when it feels right. btw, the supercharger in the movie could be turned on and off via an electrical switch, which isnt true in reality. They elevated the supercharger upon brackets over the engine with an electric motor, haha. The photo below illustrates the same electric supercharger setup as the movie.

    Black Ice Nemesis GTX 80mm radiator allows options for different compression fittings, versus the welded inlet/outlet ports. I've mounted aluminum framed Evercool 80mm fan. I'll probably paint the fan dark grey.

    What do you use for cutting small holes? I made this guide for Step Drill Bits here, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVs3tLZQZ6g I found Max's Falcon rim in web search attached Nikko Toyota HiLux 4WD R/C truck, but I'll check the R/C Hobby Stores Our scale V8 sitting next to Black ICE GTX 80mm radiator. This morning I found 36mm thick 80mm radiator online shown below. Suppose Flex tube loop would be appropriate.

    Do you recall the Red pull switch on Max's stick shift for his Supercharger? I thought it would be fun to somehow implement it into my Mad Max tribute build. The switch is used in commercial vehicles for controlling a two-speed axle assembly. I found it on Ebay as Cole Hersee part number 50036-BX.

    To emulate the rear fuel tanks in Max's Ford Falcon XB, I'm using EK-RES X3 150mm reservoirs. btw, these photos are stills from video I'm making of the entire build, once it finished for my YT channel, https://www.youtube.com/user/MonsterMawd I'm wondering if I can use clips from the movie without audio in my video? no clue...

    That's location for the GPU with this do-it-yourself vertical mount. The final GPU will have water block. Next stage is modifying the top rear portion of the Enermax Equilence case to hold two water reservoirs to emulate the rear fuel tanks on the falcon XB.
