but how am I gonna fit both of them together??
Image
easy, cut 1/4 of the box on each of them
Image
Image
the saw!!!:devil-smi
Image
measure the back end
Image
roughly about 19.5 cm.........not the most accurate measurements but it will do
Image
9.6/7 cm on the box which is needed to be cut off
Image
mark it
Image
and cut it
Image
there we go
Image
same with the other side
Image
Image

:D
will it fit?? that's the last prob
Image
:P
Image
at least 10 minutes passed.....
Image
wow, looks great
Image
hmm...a hole in the pipes??
Image
cut those small pieces off and hope that they can fit
Image
Image
Image
lets glue it up

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
Image
Image
meanwhile, I've got plans for the other piece
Image
yes, I'm gonna place the bezel into it
Image
and stick it for sure
Image
done
Image
I don't know if you can see the big hole bezel or not...
Image
paint matte black
Image
ready for the other piece
Image
done and what I have left to do is cut off the bezel........
Image
and it equals to
Image
the big holed bezel painted black on both sides
Image
Image
and weld it to the bezel
Image
Image
and there you have it........2 bad-:) side attachment
Image

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
Image
Image
and do a little paint job
Image
matte black
Image
used some dark grey as the back intake
Image
Image

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 !!!!

Finally, this is going to end :D

so, screwed the fan to the case to make sure that it doesn't slip
Image
fit the pieces to the case
Image
Image
measure the width of between the sides
Image
approx 9 cm but I made it 11 cm so it will fit inside of them
Image
clever thinking, cutting it out with a bottle attached to the back of it
Image
Image
fits perfectly
Image
off for some paint job
Image
dark grey
Image
meanwhile, get some leftover pieces of card
Image
drew the height and cut it
Image

match it till the end of the case
Image
Image
mark it and cut it out
Image
Image
Image
going to fit another piece at the back of both pieces
Image
ok, change of plans...., I'll use the leftover of the lego box again :eek:
Image
find a piece of cardboard ( leftovers ) and try to fit it there
Image
fits nicely and stick it there
Image
but hey there's more pvc pipes :D
I'll try fitting then there to cover it up
Image

Image
fits perfectly
Image
looks nice too
Image
then, paint it with dark grey again
Image
Image
which means that I'll have to modify the pieces again??
Image
Image
added some textures to the pipes
Image
and paint the lego boxes too, where I'm pointing is going to be covered with yellow paint
Image
and this one with matte black
Image
there
Image

my pics end here for now, continuing my work right away
