ok, couldn't finish it in time. But at least I finished what I wanna do today :D

some holes.......not tight enough....had to fill it with glue

IMG_0899.jpg

IMG_0900.jpg

meanwhile, I've got plans for the other piece

IMG_0901.jpg

yes, I'm gonna place the bezel into it

IMG_0902.jpg

and stick it for sure

IMG_0903.jpg

done

IMG_0904.jpg

I don't know if you can see the big hole bezel or not...

IMG_0905.jpg

paint matte black

IMG_0906.jpg

ready for the other piece

IMG_0907.jpg

done and what I have left to do is cut off the bezel........

IMG_0908.jpg

and it equals to

IMG_0909.jpg

the big holed bezel painted black on both sides

IMG_0910.jpg

IMG_0911.jpg

and weld it to the bezel

IMG_0912.jpg

IMG_0913.jpg

and there you have it........2 bad-:) side attachment

IMG_0914.jpg

It's getting dark really quick here so I decided to do a little bit more

first, I wanna fill those holes and scary edges with glue

IMG_0916.jpg

IMG_0917.jpg

and do a little paint job

IMG_0915.jpg

matte black

IMG_0918.jpg

used some dark grey as the back intake

IMG_0922.jpg

IMG_0923.jpg

sorry for the delay....... but although the post might seem to be short, it had token me hours to finish the bezel thing. Hope you enjoy todays post and keep following as tomorrow is our grand finale !!!!

so, screwed the fan to the case to make sure that it doesn't slip

IMG_0940.jpg

fit the pieces to the case

IMG_0941.jpg

IMG_0942.jpg

measure the width of between the sides

IMG_0943.jpg

approx 9 cm but I made it 11 cm so it will fit inside of them

IMG_0944.jpg

clever thinking, cutting it out with a bottle attached to the back of it

IMG_0945.jpg

IMG_0946.jpg

fits perfectly

IMG_0947.jpg

off for some paint job

IMG_0948.jpg

dark grey

IMG_0949.jpg

meanwhile, get some leftover pieces of card

IMG_0950.jpg

drew the height and cut it
