Ok guys, today I am gonna start getting some enterior work done, need to get it all together before I take it apart for painting... aslo i got some nice looking screws for estetic work... Also i will need to pick up swoop, real swoop for mini bulldozer, its gonna be quite massive *cast iron* biggrin.gif also i got led strips to go inside ( yellow ) i will need to calculate how to molex them correctly so if anyone could send me some link to assist me on what is the relations on lenght/molex, than i will need to get cable extenders to place ( they will be preset to the build connecting in PSU chamber ) sleeved yellow black ( also need to sleeve them, but only need to do half cuz i got black sleeved from RaidMax ). I also made some adjustments, the windscreen will be touchscreen fan controller moded to fit. Making contact connectors so i dont have to remove cables from the side pannel and so there are no cabbles... apart from the ones imbeded in the side pannel it self. grabing electric window adjuster for the top part so the entire cabbin will lift at a push of a button, exposing the components that will be underneath smile.gif . 

One more question, aluminium pannels or steel pannes, what would you reccomend keeping in mind the painting quality,

Hey guys, here are some more pic's and i hope i will finish the body tomorrow :)

 

Rims for the side pannel, they will  be attached to the board under with door hendges in a strip so they can angle a bit when i plan to do something to the case and PC, also the entire PC will move forward than... I will put some small wheels on the bottom of the case and move it with electric car window adjuster so it pops out when i need to do something and it will pop all the way out... Also the engine compartment will host twin modular power supply in paralel. ( side intake / front exaust ) i will need to mod it a bit so that power cable can get to it... i found angled power cable so i will first try with that one.

1/3 of the swoop that i am making, it will be 3 parts like those at different angles covered by aluminum sheets

Also, the mud protector will be reduced in size to 210mm to get in line with the tracks that will be 200mm

2r568g0.jpg

2db6vdz.jpg

 

Cabbin, it will lif upwords to open the pc components, windows will be plexiglass.

That fan will be as the top link of rotor for tracks

That top turned out nice :D

 

20u4y6r.jpg

 

 

also i figured out and i custom ordered set of these with the exact lenght and 2 rows of threads that connect them to be used as tracks

 

1.jpg

 

As for the paintjob goes, yellow with black stripes on some parts, details like the bolts will be black, grill will be black with RED backlight on top and bottom, also red non transparent mesh behind the grill... Cabbin i cant decide Yellow or black, but it will have yellow backlight, roof will be black, windscreen - i hope, NZXT LX. Also, for hidraulics effect on swoop i am going with rear suspension from VW Golf 6 and for the smaller ones on the bottom side, it will be suspension for 5th dour on VW Golf 6 as well... aprox veight empty, around 30 kilos, full around 50 :) still strugling with system that will go in, i got some of it, ( my gamer rig )... And the good news :D, I got a spot in the PC show in Belgrade Fair :)

One side complete, may look funny now odd now but over the tubes there is gonna be fan grill in shape of the gears... 

 

20holmo.jpg

2j83r6.jpg

 

Yeah its gonna be massive, after i finish 2nd side, fenders and cabbin tomorrow its painting time  :) and after that, DETAIL TIME... also, once the swoop gets in place, the bar that goes along side the dozer will give it totally different look, ( its gonna be hazelnut board piece - extremly light wood ) also i reduced the weight by allot... its gonna be 20 kilos w/o equipment inside and w/o the swoop...

 

Also the mechanism for opening the case will look like this:

 

 the middle CASE part will have wheels for easyer manipulation ...

Here it is guys, what those pipes are and how i mounted them :) 

Side panel with holes drilled 

13zwbyb.jpg

 

Checking the pipes because i need to flaten the contact area between them so they fit... they are f110mm but the part where they touch the board is 125 so there isnt any room between them.

2dwdyki.jpg

 

Turned it around after i got them in to place and now i am preparing to mount them... marking the holes and stuff..

xeq5ux.jpg

 

ok mounting method, simple but efficient :)

The hight of the case: ( for refference its 730mm )

14syt8k.jpg

 

And the case with both side panels "tubed" :)

2usijqb.jpg

 

the side panels drop inwords at the bottom, i will have to set some distancers there, they must have gap of around 1.5mm in order for case to slide out, once i mount them to the board it should be fine with some anti scratch tapes and it will gonna go nice and smooth :)

Heya guys again, mini update.

 

In order to fit 2PSU’s inside, i had to reduce the side of my ventilation tube for the â€œside intake, front exhaust†:)

2yn2tkp.jpg

Just to show you how hard it is when you have to use hand tools ;) my circular saw died on me :(

9sx848.jpg

 

And this is going to finish as the drawer type PSU mount, so i can remove PSU just by pulling them out centered, enough space, and doesn’t heat up rest of the system.

Ok guys, as you noticed i am pretty low funded :( so i am using the best of what i can get :) 

Lets stray from the main build for a bit and let me show you my pride components that are in a dire need for modifications :) 

Planning to add backlight, USB passtrough, and a volume knob to it :) paint it yellow and red, replace keycaps with possibly full metal ones in red, make tracks on the sides to look like a tiny flat dozer and wristrest that would be painted and attached like a swoop :)

 

The keyboard in question is Chicony KB-5181 with cherry MX blues 

u3mky.jpg

 

Also, my 2nd keyboard with orange omron switches :) works like a charm after almost 30 years in service :D! i will see what i can d with this one :)
