You gotta stay safe to work with the sharp parts...as this wiring has sharp edges so I had to use gloves to protect myself from any unintentional cut...

Next up...making the front panel/cover of the build....for this I used metal perforated sheets or you can say mesh metal sheet....it was indeed a tough one to work with...but at last it turn out to be good....as I want the build do be battle damaged and rusty so I wasn't too much worried about the natural rust as I will give coats to protect my peripherals from that rust...

I will give the whole build a rusty and also battle damaged look so a lot of stuffs have been modded imperfectly to show everything during a battle doesn't goes as nice as it's planned...the top fan cut was little offset in one side which will be finished  later...

Motherboard cable cutouts

Mounting mechanism for the backside panel

Just an initial dummy look of the case.....

HDD or  SSD  mounts...I  have  made  the  mounting part little  sloppy so that the ssd connectors  becomes easy  to attach

Though I painted the front part black  with 1 to 2 light coats but  actually my target is to let it rust naturally so it's looks damaged...

I thought to make the motherboard standoff by adding more nuts in the screw but it really screwed me up...as the nut got stuck later I had to cut the screw to get it out....so it's a no no plan....:(

20191006_140437.thumb.jpg.fbaca56c60a92eeb029d19e193123ba6.jpg

 

Made acrylic standoffs....and they went out pretty well indeed....

20191006_151042.thumb.jpg.ea9a61f051d546f4e2a91df97fd87e09.jpg

 

Now it's time to make the fan grill battle damaged.....20191006_233252.thumb.jpg.0a5abeb3e54ed6e2b2fd4d99551cd4c6.jpg

 

Which was already naturally damaged because I kept it for months after painting for natural rusty look
