Welcome to my next Project:



„Maker EVO Deluxe"


After a long time of thinking, I've decided to do a more complex Casemod. Lets see what I'm doing with it.
To be called into action is coming the brand new Mastercase Maker 5.
Inspired was this Mod from the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.
The interior was completely cleaned and covered with pale Leather. For the Cables/PSU Area a Cover was created in the Design of the Case.
It should be installed a lavish Watercooling with Brasstubes and Chrome Fittings which should seems like a Header.
The AGB will fitted justified in the front of the Case, so that it will be one unit on that case and be used as brake fluid reservoir.
At the Case you will find some air scoops, which are normally founded on engine covers or fenders., which will be made from me out of Aluminum Plates.
At the Leather I made different punch works.
Here and there will be a Wing installed together with Headlights and one DTM Axle Back Exhaust.
The Theme is called Sportcar and I will try to make as much Details as possible.

 



A huge thank to all who supported this Project, without your Help
the Execution of this Project wouldn't be possible.

Hello all !



Here I want to introduce all components used again.
I had the last week but frequently walking day :D


Here the ASRock Fatal1ty X99X Killer/3.1. I think the contrast of red green really well.
A motherboard in free wilderness not seen so often, still untamed :vain:

2858718

2858719

2858720

G.SKILL RIPJAWS V DDR4 2666MHz

2858721

2858722

the Gigabyte GeForce® GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming Waterforce

2858723

2858724

2858725

the Gigabyte 1200W Power Supply XP 1200M

2858726

here the Enermax T.B.Silence in 14cm

2858727

and that´s the T.B.Vergas White in 12cm with white LED´s

2858728

2858729

and here many components from the new Alphacool Eis-Serie

2858730

2858731

2858732

2858733

2858734

2858735

2858736

2858737

2858738

2858739

and here again the Mastercase Maker 5 with tempered glass window and mama and papa swan  :P

2858740

2858741


Despite still missing parts I could not let it remain and have begun already times.
So let's get started!
First, as always, the case was made naked.

2858742

2858743

Now it went straight to the air intake slots of a fender. Dry runs I had behind me so right now.
I transferred to aluminum the dimensions of the front and mark the position of the louvers

2858744

Now I have a positive and negative form for it to create the aluminum during peening / flanging (as called the molding of aluminum at all ?, I do not know it) does not tear unintentionally.
But I've just the 4 different slots milled in MDF and fits to the counterpart

2858745

2858746

2858747

Now cut the slots in the wood

2858748

then all processed with the hammer and the shapes and cut out in the end only from the large aluminum plate

2858749

it goes on with a front spoiler, only cut the spoiler lip from acrylics

2858750

Try and think of something I had an image in the head thereto and have more acrylics radicals tailored and trimmed ground

2858751

at the same time the rear spoiler is made. Here I decided for MDF.
First of coarse cut design

2858752

and now missed the whole a Aerodynamic shape. This reminded me when working on more planes than cars  :D

2858753

The bottom 3cm where the spoiler on the case is I have glued a second MDF board, have not photographed but in the later images of the painting you can see the spoiler down around gets thicker

2858754

2858755

after I was now on all operations of the front spoiler in the clear I have glued the various acrylic parts with each other

2858756

then I bent from aluminum small wing spoiler

2858757

then everything was primed to start the filling, just the front spoiler had to be done much

2858758

2858759

2858760

After the water cooling has arrived, it went to the cutout for the reservoir

2858761

despite a PVC cutting disc that work is always pure torture

2858762

but just as I had imagined

2858763

only new holders for the reservoir is made.
Preferably 3mm aluminum angle, still remainder of my desk;)

2858764

2858765

casually, because of all the dry processes the spoilers were always times filled and primed

2858766

The opening behind the louvers had to be cut

2858767

Now the radiator grille

2858768

the rear spoiler was now ready for painting, so I have all the holes for the mounting set and the actual wing cut to size and glued. Here again 3mm acrylic glass

2858769

2858770

after gluing with epoxy adhesive the connections equal primed and filled

2858771

2858772

after the radiator grille was now cut out

2858773

I find the optimum position for the small wing spoilers and those glued to the alu sheets with the air slots

2858774

is slowly taking shape

2858775

A DTM exhaust is also planned so a aluminum bracket was cut

2858776

and then drilled holes for the exhaust pipes
The exhaust is then the way from a few remnants of brass pipes and fittings with 45 ° angle.
A 1 / 4Zoll thread cutter I have not yet, I ordered yesterday and should still arrive this week

2858777

here I had everything tested, by lacquered whether I like the result. One often sees irregularities only when it's done, so better now before there is no time.  :lol:

2858778

2858779

the holders of the reservoir were also painted, are here mounted

2858780

and fits beautifully

2858781

What next? Headlights: P
cut 1 cm acrylic glass strip and only once sanded quite a while and burnt fingers

2858782

Now I have this cut and polished in the headlight shape  :doofy:

2858783

had himself photographed really bad

2858784

2858785

I've cut and folded the front grille of the fan guards from Case, this will sit flush with the front spoiler lip as of  8o

2858786

next update comming soon!

Hello!

As announced I made a small engine bonnet.
For that I have transferred the fan opening from the lid on aluminum

2859273

then I have again created me two forms to reshape the aluminum

2859274

now deformed and cut out the aluminum

2859275

looking for something I can build a engine bonnet breech, I found it here (right the original)
The pins I cut to length and each provided with a hole

2859276

then halved a key chain and so it should look like

2859277

after it was painted, I have the engine bonnet covered with carbon foil and glued the bonnet breech it

2859278

2859279

The chipset cooler from the motherboard had to change their color

2859280

2859281

2859282

Then I started already times to relate the radiators with leather

2859283

2859284

2859285

attempts me times on a small piece of wood, with 2 cm foam material upholster on

2859286

2859287

2859288

the headlights I also equipped already with Led's

2859289

2859290

for the area in front of the IO panel I had to create a cover because you could see from there quite well behind the radiator or on the reservoir

2859291

2859292

to let red disappear all the motherboard I have folded a small aluminum sheet and painted to cover all Sataports

2859293

2859294

2859295

Cpu Holder was also repainted

2859296

The cable duct in the MB tray had to be moved, I got him simply cut out and placed to the left behind the Radi bracket

2859297

2859298

The Ram modules I have also mounted casual.
but ran is not according to plan. The GSkill have only one side of memory so she slipped always out of the bottom.
I have also used it nor the thermal pad of the original cooler.
Now when I wanted to mount the cooler on the modules, a problem again. The screws are all 2mm too long. So I got all screws 2mm shorter sanded, unfortunately, had no right here

2859299

2859300

2859301

so much for that than next I have the exhaust manifold from the brass tubes tinker.

2859302

The next update!



Sorry for some images, with Energy Drink in the blood, it is difficult to keep the camera calmly XD.

As recently already announced I had my first time a form for the 13er brass tubes build.
So get bought in the hardware store and a 15er copper pipe and bent this.
On the second try that also looked very presentable.

img_21934xx38.jpg

This bent pipe and a piece I've just halved with the Flex and sanded smooth.
Now I have a perfect shape for the 13er tubes

img_2194xzydj.jpg

For the motherboard tray I have a 3mm aluminum plate cut and screwed into the Case

img_219555xz6.jpg

then sawed wood on the later, the leather is fixed

img_21976hl3o.jpg

Now the holes for the pipes and cable set.
the pipe penetration needed 17er holes, so I first with a cone drill holes drilled 16er and finally even with a size 17 drill afterwards

img_2198mryv3.jpg

img_2200wry80.jpg

img_22014dyb6.jpg

img_220258lic.jpg

img_2203onbrd.jpg

after the 1/4 inch thread cutter was there I was able to secure the DTM exhaust.
Just stupid that the angle was too thin so I decided from 3mm aluminum sheet suitable nuts cut and there purely cut the thread.
Not pretty but rarely does what it should and can not be seen anyway.

img_2204oyybr.jpg

img_23049nq9q.jpg

img_2305v8pvk.jpg

matching brass tubes in DTM style were then cut to size

img_2211a4ln5.jpg

img_23034grwj.jpg

This is what I can actually save me but I speak the topic anyway.
After a little practice with the brass tubes and tube bender I have created the loop in the interior.

img_2205jxbvj.jpg

img_2207msazr.jpg

and Cutt! I knew it! Every time I say to myself, do not start before the hardware is there and I have made the mistake again.
My plan was to pack the graphics card in the lower 2 PCIe slots to have up enough space to tinker from the brass tubes a exhaust manifold.
Yes if you plan in advance is all in vain.
Coolers of graphics cards are too thick, you can not use the lower PCIe slot, even if the Mid tray comes out only stay 5mm up to PSU.
Then there would be no more room for the wooden board with the leather and the PCI outputs on Case would also be extended by one.
The loop at any rate nothing that cpus come up into it, half of the tubes I could accommodate but first I needed new.
Well that later.
Now I have set the position for the AIO radiators of GPUs. One comes before the power supply and the second comes from the back of the case.
only times sawed So for the first hole in the ground

img_2216atav1.jpg

then put the hose guide from the AIO in Midtray

img_2217qkxn2.jpg

Then, an angle was cut carrying the pump and the second radiator of the AIO

img_22182bzdd.jpg

around the pump to be positioned as flexible as possible I have set oblong holes. For milling these holes I need to buy a cross table to me.
Here I drilled only at the beginning and end of two holes and cut out the connection.

img_2220sxarj.jpg

then cut two angles and a flat bars for the radiator

img_22293uln8.jpg

img_2234dyz7k.jpg

img_2236y5qa7.jpg

then I fastened spacers for the rear side panel. (P5 Style)

img_22376spxf.jpg

well as already mentioned I have to make different loop so I displaced all the holes in the pipe carry out, just like the first time with cone drill drilled to 16mm and a 17mm drill afterwards.

img_22415yp1j.jpg

img_2242vcpr4.jpg

the old holes I closed with aluminum kit and 2K Filler again, back simply tape it so that it does not fall through, which you can then easily be removed or sanded again.

img_2244kxrrs.jpg

after sanding nor a twice fine fill in and ready

img_2247zxouy.jpg

Now I have bent the window for the back to match the shape of the Cases

img_2248ptr1t.jpg

img_2249b7pbv.jpg

img_22501gq47.jpg

around the compressions of the outer corners in bend can not be seen. If the Window cut to size after the bend. Delicate matter I know.
Beautifully clamped the whole and every 5cm goes be reclamped thus merely nothing wrong.

img_2252d0pci.jpg

img_2253oxo7e.jpg

The side which closes the front is then beveled so that it nicely with the Case

img_225977o3r.jpg

fits perfect

img_2262atpul.jpg

sawn off only the top and bottom

img_2263e6qf7.jpg

img_2264ohpyb.jpg

img_2265wbowe.jpg

img_2268tlooj.jpg

cut out another hole for the fan

img_2269qwpjq.jpg

and this then freed of unnecessary ballast :rolleyes:

img_2270htpie.jpg

img_22714wpd2.jpg

img_22721jrqk.jpg

fits also perfecly

img_2274s2qf6.jpg

img_2275g1ova.jpg

Now I have the brass tubes to re-cut and bent.
First of securing the pipe bender neat, which is even something of unwieldy and chromed tubes slip easily

img_2276zrq88.jpg

img_227782qh7.jpg

img_2278ndpq5.jpg

then all aluminum parts  were primed with filler and with aluminum primer

img_2279aspw8.jpg

all cutting edges on Case I have with color (Paintbrush) overlined to the rust prevention even if this is not the best method.

img_2281apomv.jpg

img_2283h3qgo.jpg

Now I have the wood panels covered with leather

img_22867gonf.jpg

img_2287owow3.jpg

The holes should in fact be stung with a Hollow Punch, the ground was too soft so I had to cut it with a knife. Not very clean but is concealed by the fittings.

img_2288ojow0.jpg

img_2289n6qst.jpg

img_229022ptf.jpg

img_2291faorh.jpg

Now I have all the parts ready lacquered.

img_22946yq2c.jpg

so now the next challenge: a PSU cover. So that you still can still use the Window and open.
So, at first bent a plexiglass
Below only slightly slanted so as I said, the window can still be put in Case

img_2296cqrad.jpg

then completely cut to size and put yet holes for the tubes

img_2297czqal.jpg

Then I measured everything, position of the power supply etc. and the design transferred. here until the surface is the leather-covered

img_2298wxq5g.jpg

this surface then brushed with 40 grit sandpaper so that the contact adhesive holds

img_2299m7plq.jpg

Now I glued the leather on it.

img_23009ouqv.jpg

then I have three or four hours spent with the transfer of the film. You believe it or not, but for the whole PSU Cover I was good for 8 hours. That was not planned: P

img_23016mu2p.jpg

Before leather I had already made a Fillup, everything was tight. Get tomorrow everything reinstall and start with the cabling.
Little things are still, Window outer edges polished, correct a few pipes at the loop, what you always see only the photos and operate at all corners yet tweaking.
a Sli bridge I wanted to build but a little time still remains for me.  :D

HIHO!


Up to the last update!

all Alphacool logos were exchanged Chrome logos and the CPU holder got something orange accents.

img_2306q6uiv.jpg

for I was determined a half a day busy with weeding the stickers, but they were not the only stickers

img_23101au7z.jpg

as you can see the adapter fittings from behind, this had to be painted black

img_2309ucuon.jpg

then I've yet created a SLI Bridge and this cut from 2mm acrylic glass somewhat obliquely cut and glued together

img_2311obuv8.jpg

img_2315mvug3.jpg

img_2316eaunp.jpg

this has been repeatedly painted before and painted in the end black and covered with foil (the design of the graphics card) Unfortunately, I have a separate image of this, you can see it but the final images.

On that PSU Cover I back side glued two strips to slide the cover exactly on the Mid-tray can.

img_2313efu5c.jpg

before Foiling the front I had to eliminate some damage

img_2312kdujd.jpg

then the cut edges of the windows were yet polished, unfortunately this is the best picture what I could get

img_23173oukl.jpg

img_2318z9uov.jpg

Procedure: first scrape the edges with a scraper smooth, then sanding of 300 to 800 wet sandpaper, then polish with two polishing pastes and a felt pad and the very end with car polish and a cotton disk to mirror polish

img_232159uuj.jpg

Now I have the front covered with Carbonfoil

img_2322m8u63.jpg

Now I have the fenders on it glued, with double-thick adhesive tape, looks like a thermal pad, it has the appearance of a sealing rubber. :wink:

img_2323btubz.jpg

The headlights and the radiator grille will now also be glued, the Fronspoiler was screwed

img_23263puz3.jpg

the Xtreme Gaming stickers Gigabyte I can yet plotting to three times the size and for a small aluminum plate designed as a backing to give it some depth profile.
This I then primed, painted, transferred the sticker and all onto the PSU cover glued

img_2328z3uge.jpg

img_2340kcua1.jpg

For lighting I have two LED strips soldered with dimmable remote control handle.
As under car illumination a black light LED comes strip used, these had a loose connection so I renewed the cable.

img_2330dfuqu.jpg

for the black light I still have cut an aluminum strip on the I Stripe glue. The strip was then glued centrally under the Case

img_2331jwu7h.jpg

one day I was busy with the cabling

img_2335muu1q.jpg

also had at every corner yet minimal corrections are made
PSU cover did not fit completely, because of the Radi AIO was in the way, so I've cut out the cover below a small recess
Brass pipes were all again adapted and something shortened because but a few things were not quite satisfactory.
-an appropriate coolant I have mixed in distilled water and Mayhams Dey Yellow and Red.

Now the worst after I had filled the Sys yesterday again with the correct Coolant and all just sample ran, there was an after 5min ZISCH and reservoir was empty.
One of the brass tubes slipped from the CPU cooler and the pump has pumped their entire contents to the CPU / motherboard.
super, something one day before completion.
Well the Sys was out, it was only the pump, but I am a bit nervous to start the system.
Yesterday I naturally everything dried again, mixed new Coolant, refilled again, and the whole then as to run through the night.


So the Final Pics!
Currently there is absolute chaos here have no proper place more. The quality of the images is modest beautiful, I will do the same next week new, as little taste, I hope this rich images
