Here some picture of the build.
The old case was a Silverstone RVZ01. A nice HTPC case and I liked the sleek design. But the airflow was not impressive at all. CPU and GPU kept spinning their fans to no avail.
Fitting all the cabling was quite a mess and I finally disassembled everything.
The new open case was sketched on some spare carbon fiber sheets. Actually twice because I did not align the weave the first time. All the panels are cut with a diamond wheel on the Dremel tool. Working with carbon fiber is quick but take care to not breathe the dust. Always vacuum the dust right next to the tool.
The case is glued with an aviation grade epoxy glue. This glue is super strong and does not become brittle with age. Expensive but worth it. To shorten the curing time The assembly was baked for 2 hour at 60°C in the oven.
The surface finish i some clear gloss spray paint. It gives the shine and depth to the carbon fiber.
Installation and cabling was straight forward. The Space in the socket of the case was just enough to hide all the excess cable length.

All parts out, what a mess
What will be left for the new build
Sketching the parts on a cf sheet. Yes, real old school construction
Baking the assembly to shorten the cure time of the glue
