Hello again!! We are counting the days until this beautiful event comes to an end, i am counting the days until i finish!! So lets get down to the last week and start it with finalizing the acrylic logos!! What was done is unstick the pieces clean them and stick them back together using some liquid fiberglass!!

Here is the process!!

IMG_20170423_201656.thumb.jpg.6a85f82b17d60768999ca5690507f6b4.jpgIMG_20170423_202410.thumb.jpg.a585128875b1af3a169c8026df44bf5e.jpgIMG_20170423_203646.thumb.jpg.03beee4860497e91bff19e292fa73568.jpg

 

Here are the pieces glued together with the fiberglass!!

The re allign was tricky enough as i had to be cautious and watch the outline of the logos!! More to come this week!! Until next update, Peace Brothers!!

Hello again!! Today was the day i did the case and painted the rear i/o panel and the motherboard tray!!

So lets begin with the motherboard tray!!

20170424_152444.thumb.jpg.5d7805998f82570cbfb5f7a4b498c331.jpg

 

Now with primer and ready to be painted orange the base colour!!

20170424_153600.thumb.jpg.7a802a3427fc1d32e06b359d9378cb2f.jpg

 

Next it is painted orange and ready for black colour!!

20170424_154621.thumb.jpg.f852ae5b48d1fb13ea8b76d2e3008a02.jpg

 

Here is painted black with the plastic bag effect!!

20170424_155003.thumb.jpg.5008a5d27dd6ced06f30610abcbe64c9.jpg20170424_155611.thumb.jpg.23c6d74502b72a0e4e58a26e8a1a6958.jpg

 

The mistake i made was that i used matt colour instead of gloss, so here i begin!!

20170424_161748.thumb.jpg.89d680ecfa0ccb5012ed2c4a2a12e6bd.jpg

 

Now let's paint orange and prep the tray for black colour and the plastic bag effect!!

20170424_161754.thumb.jpg.295ecfcfaf29a010650aab4718e3f9bc.jpg

 

Here are the tools!!

20170424_162019.thumb.jpg.e146d0d5db9173cefbd02bc559136d4a.jpg

 

After few paints and minor adjustments here is the rear side of the motherboard tray finished!!

So here i continue with the rear i/o!!

First two images are the inner side primered and painted orange!!

20170424_151135.thumb.jpg.cf82d5826febd2ee2155324ce9329156.jpg20170424_151345.thumb.jpg.9b020d128f44a7bcb30ede589609c4e7.jpg

 

Next it was time to paint it black and apply the plastic bag effect!!

20170424_165520.thumb.jpg.a092421b9e4134205e12789f5f3c8e99.jpg

 

Same procedure applied in the outter side with a little extra!! Some paint splashes using orange colour!!

So now i proceed with the case amplification!! What is this all about is putting two metal angles on the bottome of the case to prevent it from bending and make it more stable!!

Here is a preliminary test of where the angles will be placed!!

20170424_182333.thumb.jpg.89bff421d2cd1b088824cf8d9e6e46eb.jpg

 

The left one had to be adjusted in order to properly take its place under the case hole!! So what i did was basically cut off the upper hole and leaving it with three hole to be bolted on the case!!

20170424_182409.thumb.jpg.436ed2e773b4ba8ffc6ebe393f4a6efa.jpg

 

Here are the measurements taken!!

20170424_183232.thumb.jpg.398dd8edeb435d181b14add3ab0bafbc.jpg

 

After that i did a preliminary test with the face panel attached and how the case will act!! I must say the durability now is more than enough!!

20170424_194418.thumb.jpg.c184a702f942d98f349c369b4592cefe.jpg20170424_194425.thumb.jpg.3331c3894d259b94aa8c2b0314f25282.jpg

 

Here is the case from the inner side!!

20170424_194437.thumb.jpg.b59bfe63afbee21c67d9a3ab4cb834fe.jpg

 

And a closer one!!

20170424_194445.thumb.jpg.3babe4be019c6d31245e2bb6b3ad9064.jpg

 

Of course before i attach the front face panel i cutted the excess parts of the screws!!

20170424_195210.thumb.jpg.f2f5fc03533e980baeda051621db4863.jpg

 

The Freeman requires on his computer....wheels!!

20170424_195227.thumb.jpg.b4526417fc04a5f1789add21ea851a59.jpg

 

Today was a complete day so next what will be done is to attach the wheels, until then, Peace Brothers!!

Hello again!! Today was a big day as i did made the holes for the wheels, painted the case and glued the first two pieces of the logo to one side panel!!

So, first things first, the day doesn't begin without a cup of coffee so lets proceed!!

Here i took the already existing holes and widen them for the rivets to fit properly!!

S4230002.thumb.JPG.9b9d95a916c60b03024df8ef9cbde8d4.JPGS4230003.thumb.JPG.be54d4548b1258345ea3b372bce5d443.JPGS4230004.thumb.JPG.ad6a247ad322c6992eec26a02ee1aaf0.JPG

 

Same thing happened to the rest of the feet!!

S4230011.thumb.JPG.112d20b2a8ddfcd58951393e1ec50e27.JPG

 

So, next i took the side panel i had it cure over night from fiberglass repair and did a slight repair also today!!

Furthermore, i glued the first two pieces of the game's logo where they should be placed on the side panel!!

So, i took the pieces and sanded them down a bit to roughen its surface for the fiberglass to stick better!!

S4230006.thumb.JPG.a8b6ebb5fcd6297866d26f9425718993.JPG

 

Next i marked the area so i could sand it a bit to stick better!!

S4230007.thumb.JPG.010031b1e826f9e4ad5580e0979d3c6d.JPGS4230008.thumb.JPG.18dcf99067542d3b21ce2deeec3a30c2.JPG

 

Then i made some fiberglass mixture with some silicon and thinned it with aceton so i can process it longer!!

Using that stick i spreaded the fiberglass where it should be placed and sticked the logos!!

S4230009.thumb.JPG.49545217d48bf83dfee8fd9c1716258b.JPGS4230010.thumb.JPG.1da9ec32f1d302a97b3b3ae2aba9a2dd.JPG

 

It doesn't matter if the liquid exceeds the drawing as it will be painted so it will match the front panel and the inside!! The crackle effect will remain in some areas to show that both painting techniques are used!! The post will continue next!!

So, here now lets paint it black!! Here is the cause for that effect!! I apologize for the poor quality photo, i couldn't have that time very adequate lighting!!

S4230019.thumb.JPG.d82868cabcdcbde339734f1a2cb395c7.JPG

 

Here is the inner bottom side painted with the plastic bag effect!!

S4230020.thumb.JPG.500c909983b159754989efd4fbe0a560.JPG

 

Then, the rest of the case!!

S4230021.thumb.JPG.5ab1132f587cbe01d5e901b09e36adb6.JPG

 

I thought then to add some extra effect on it and i decided to add some paint splashes!!

S4230023.thumb.JPG.1dded964354c18ff9b73cde27384d0fa.JPGS4230024.thumb.JPG.a7927d75bbe9889cbadec319136330bf.JPGS4230025.thumb.JPG.af9232114ba3c2fa0aff29dfca8204ab.JPGS4230026.thumb.JPG.8c20bfd09c4badf78715d14f6371731b.JPGS4230027.thumb.JPG.89733f77e64c083361ec966e3b18ff1d.JPG

 

And bottom side!!

S4230028.thumb.JPG.6fa9c97be8fbd8a60e2ea7f5bba78a68.JPG

 

Final picture for today!! I must say i am quite ecstatic with the result, i wouldn't expect to get that beautiful!! :D:D

20170426_005653.thumb.jpg.0c47eef7b6a32cbc08aba2d66ceecb41.jpg

 

So, that is all for today, more will come tomorrow with the hardware installation and see if everything goes as they should be working!! Until then, Peace Brothers!!
