Thank you!

Heres a little tour of my workshop

My son in the corner of my workshop watching Star Wars.. (I've stopped counting)


Past and current projects.. The cool shelves are from Automobilia, Retro Furniture, Clothing, and Car Accessories from Genuine Hotrod Hardware


On weekends I tinker on things other than besides computers and cases..


Frig, Tunes, Microwave, Dragster photograph was given to me by my friends


I know every Modder has one of these.. Cooling Fan Bin

WOW wish i had the money for a sweet workshop like that, my dad has a lot of tools and stuff but its all old and worn out so it makes it diffcult to use (could really use one of those knockout punches to replace my 120mm hole saw that seems to cut 125mm holes...)

Thank you!, Yes, but they're around $600 for everything you need. I write it off as a business expense.

Heres the scale of the 250mm grill on the side panel

That 120 greenlee punch is the greatest tool ever, I've had my eye out for one on ebay and local tool auctions for over a year now...still nothing within budget :P

Prep and painting a new coat of Mazda Miata Yellow with some HoK Pearl Flake ...magic

I'll have a YouTube video of this stage posted later this week.

Lian Li PC-7plus (aluminum chassis)


CLARKE brand 80 grit media


Filling CLARKE ABRASIVE BLASTER with 80 Grit Garnet Blasting Media


Brad blasting surface of computer chassis outdoors. You need to cover your face and skin!

After blowing off the chassis of any remaining blasting media, we clean the surface with a Tack cloth.


Brad applies the first of 3 coats of Mazda Miata Yellow




The final coat is House of Kolor Pearl


After HoK Pearl, Brad applies the clearcoat.


After the clear is applied, the color and pearl really pops!


I'll be posting a video of explaining each step of painting the chassis this week

250mm laser cut fan grill is finished, 14 gauge steel.

fyi: props to slaymate for redrawing the file for me!

I'm playing around with some different ideas I have for mounting it. Elevated looks cool, because it creates a shadow
