Guide: Fueler's Custom Modded Folding Rig


Top Fan Grill:

Sunday I just couldn't handle another day like I had Saturday, so instead of finishing the fan brackets, I moved on to something else.

The top plate still needed to be finished up.

Although I couldn't readily find any green 80mm fans, I was able to get a 120mm fan (in green) for the exhaust blow hole.

The first thing I needed to do was cut out the wooden plate for the fan.

Nice fit huh?

Next I cut a recess around the hole for the aluminum fan grill.

I made short work of cutting out the grill....here it is assembled.

Here are a couple more pic's just to give you an idea where I am at on this.

For now, the grill is just resting in the recess.....It's hard to see in the pics, but it is actually sitting about 1/32" below where it would be flush with the surface. When I do the final assembly it will sit on double-sided foam tape....this will bring it flush with the top and give it a little noise dampening cool.gif .
