3M Carbon Fiber backside case modding

Spread the love

I thought a long time about what I should do to the backside of my case, but it finally hit me. Carbon fiber full cover plates to tie up the theme and make a background for my new custom sleeved MDPC-X cables.

As with previous custom case parts to this mod, I did the backside panels in acrylic. New for the backside is a test of a new very exclusive car wrap. My supplier just finished wrapping a 250.000€ Lamborghini and had some vinyl to spare, for me to test.

The only problem with this part of the mod will be the custom case floor PSU shroud I previously created. I also want to secure the horizontal cover into the case edge, but have a good idea there as well.

I cut away 5mm with my newly acquired Dremel Moto-Saw and as wide as the edge case plates visible in the previous picture.

After cutting the piece for the vertical part of the backside carbon mod, I took measurements for the cut-out for the floor as well as the holes for mounting it. I will share holes with the inside carbon fiber case wall, so the fit needs to be perfect.

Can’t  be happier with that cut-out, just a perfect fit. It’s a little little wider then the floor, so after adding my 3M carbon fiber vinyl, it will be super snug.

Looking really good and everything aligns. Time to test my Lamborghini vinyl 🙂

Looks and feels even better then my previously used Di-Noc.

Super tight fit with extremely nice surface to it. It’s water resistant as it’s a certified car vinyl, but I hope I never have to verify that 😉

Finished result with an even sexier case backside. What do you think?
