After the design it was time to get the sheet metal frame made. This was done out of 2mm steel to give it strenght and being able to tap threads. Once it arrived it needed some small clean up and counter sinking for all the mounting holes.
Handles, spacers and casefeet.
Small handmade parts to work together with the sheet metal parts,
Wooden box modifications.
Time for the scarry bit, marking the box, do double check with the sheetmetal and cutting.
Distro and EKWB goodies
Good start of the vacation when the custom distro arrived. Big thanks goes out to TheDutchManModifies for helping out getting it made. A week later these goodies from EKWB showed up
Paint prep and painting
One small tweak needed to sheetmetal for a perfect fit in the box. Sanding all parts to prep them for paint. After cleaning them painting with SteelIt and let them dry in the sun. Look at this finish :o
