Back to the Mod | Delorean inspired mod
 
The future is a mystery, the past is history.
We do not have the ability to turn the clock,
We must make the most, with every shot.
Changing lives makes an impression,
For the only way to truly surpass the boundary,
Is to make sure that you leave something behind.

Above you will find the preview sketch for my plan to accomplish this mod.

The list of sponsors so far on board for this project are as follows:

We will update the above list, and also update with the products sponsored via images soon.

I will be updating this thread along with others on other forums, as well as on Facebook, instagram etc... Search Precision Computing across these platforms, and refer to this http://www.precisioncomputing.net/co...ck-to-the-mod/ for updated links as to where I will be sharing.

We start with the untouched case. I have had this case for a few years, the windowed side panel was an option from Cooler Master. We won't be needing that! :D

Now we start the breakdown.

http://www.precisioncomputing.net/wp...5/IMG_0882.jpg

Now we have a bare case, and I am starting to layout what will be the new back panel. It will have dimension to allow for cable management, and mounting of all the internal components.

Next post will have some cutting into the frame of the case, as well as a couple videos! Enjoy!

Next we get into cutting up the case!

http://www.precisioncomputing.net/wp...5/IMAG2903.jpg

Now we can see the overall idea coming together.

I have also created a little video for you guys, so enjoy!

I will try to get a video post, as well as pictures as I go through the process.

So after the chassis was cut down, we began fitment of test panels and creating templates.

Then some support braces to make the chassis strong, as well as a new bottom panel.
These were all test pieces at this point.

Use of the front of the case:

First test fit with the paper mock up panels:

Marcam923 08-11-2015 10:00 AM

The hardware!

Here we begin the mock up of the bottom tray, and also add wheels:

Initial layout for motherboard, and radiator, that changed:

All pieces were cut by hand using hand and electric power tools as seen below:

http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b5...pspzvqdhay.jpg

Now that I had a good idea of the layout, time to make the final frame work:

Measure cut, measure cut:

Moving on to the Thermaltake DPS power supply, giving it the "stainless" treatment to match the theme:

First steel wool to remove the gold paint from the aluminum grill, then to polishing:

http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b5...psuybjp9un.jpg

Shiney :D

http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b5...ps1wz0vken.jpg

Now we hand painted using brushed to achieve the stainless look, using a bright silver, and black blended:

Final:

Using the original front of the case from the HAF 922, after giving it the "stainless" treatment to fit the mod. Tribute to Cooler Master for hosting this competition and allowing us to have the opportunity to compete!
