Nervous, first time modding and working in acrylic, worried it will not bend as sharp as I need or cracking when bending. After a quick experiment on how much I could bend and how much I should heat my 5mm acrylic sheet I got to work on creating my custom PSU cover / secondary floor to start of my modding project named Zeuligan.

I’m blessed with having a small workshop in the apartment building where I live, but I don’t own any good power tools. Old fashion handwork it is, but makes modding more real.

Actually surprised how well it went. I put the piece into a work bench after slightly overheating it, then reapplied some heat with my newly acquired heat gun. Added some pressure with a piece of wood until bend angle was according to my measurement of the indents of the bottom of the case.

As I explained in my previous update when planning the custom PSU cover, I wanted custom lighting. This is how it turned out. Size and bend angle was the easy, but it interfears with part of the case bracket, so had to file it down in the inside corner.

Some close ups on how the lighting ramp looks. Just 5mm acrylic and 3 layers of frosted film on top. Want it to look white when LEDs are running. That’s why I went with a light frost film rather then dark. Will look good when power is on, I hope 🙂 Felt this was a good piece of modding.

Finally I made mounting holes, sized for a rubber grommet and a cut out of the SSD cables. Happy with the result. This is turning out to be good modding. Can turn out like a great custom gaming pc after all.
