Work progressing with building the main structure and most part of the top case part. This is an important part of the mod as it will either make it or brake it. I need to tie it together with the front and base part.
I hope I will end up with a feeling of one cohesive exterior case rather than 3 separate parts.
First big part of the top case exterior. The first part makes a larger impact of the whole than one can think. It influence each of the following angles and they the next and in the end the entire case part. Takes a lot of trial and error before deciding on the pattern and the first part. This was mine…
Added a second, but lower and angled side panel on both sides.
Testing different shapes and angles is much easier with tape.
Fastened for real. Starts to wrap around the top like a warm hug.
Added a fairly flat piece to the back. After different tests I thought this will look best in profile (as that is how you mostly view the case).
Lot’s of parts.
The top front is starting to come together.
Added more angles to the side of the top. I know it wont matter when it’s done, but the tape fastening method looks so messy, bothers me a little.
That will reflect the light really nice when it’s finished in it’s matt black finish.
Two symetrical sides. Not entirely sure how to wrap up the top, so need to start working from the back. Still need to figure out airflow.
Centered point on this back piece.
Two larger flatter pieces. Need some pieces to keep the overall design and feeling a little calmer.
Took some re-positioning and sanding to get the joining part exactly in the middle. Added longer triangles to the back.
Reminds me about the back of a sportscar. The two large triangular holes are not forgoten, but left for a reason. More of that later.
Left two small “intakes” on the side.
