Hey guys, got quite a bit done over the last couple of days, the whole frame is all welded and we now have some steel rods in for extra support.

 

As I said earlier I wanted to save the core p5 support brackets to use later on in the build and this is what I needed them for. To prevent any flex in the rod etc, I used these brackets to square up the nut and bolt so it didn't screw into the ball on an angle. The hollow inside of the bracket also means i can route a small LED bulb through and light up the gun. The rod will be cut short in future progress.

The whole aluminium frame has been spot welded, all that is left to do is clean up the welds with the grinder.

The steel support rods also acted as a great support for welding the motherboard tray to.

The Core P5 PSU mounting system has been welded in place on the brick vent and this was then welded to the sliders.

I started shaping up some body work using this mould-able aluminium, was a very easy cut for the dremel.

I put some expandable foam on the Aluminium channel and carved it out so that it had a nice defined point instead of a flat surface. This helped me to mould the aluminium to the wing shape i needed.

I used a bit of araldite adhesive to hold the aluminium in place and just taped it up for extra support while i filled in the gaps with some expandable foam.

Once again the carving starts, fairly easy light weight stuff to work with. My aim is to make a smooth transition from the ball to the wings.

Once again filling in the gaps with the foam on the underside.

Then using my hands pushing it into those gaps and giving it a bit of shape.

I hope you are all enjoying the progress so far. More shortly.

In Today's progress i fill out the back section with the mouldable aluminium and work out mounting the radiator mounts.

 

Lots of dremel cutting today, don't have the grinder until later so it will have to do

 

8Jb3iF1.jpg

 

A bit of Araldite 2 part adhesive to hold the aluminium sheets in place for now.

 

vOBmtGC.jpg

 

One sheet moulded into shape

 

cn3H304.jpg

 

now the second is applied and everything is taped down so it can dry and i can continue working.

Time to shape up some of that foam, i just used a cheap knife to carve at it

 

qJfrOuL.jpg

 

Nice and square now, gives me a base height of where i need to start the body from.

Time to play around with the radiator positioning.

 

gj79Kv5.jpg

 

Grinding down the lips on the Core P5 Radiator mount so that it sits flush with my frame work

 

VYXemLU.jpg

 

And of course a bit of clean up

 

jU7DT4H.jpg

 

Now i am drilling some holes and riviting the radiator mount to the frame work.

Using the grinder to remove some of the excess aluminium on the ends 

 

rC3OZlm.jpg

 

In order for me to route the tubes i need to face the radiator ports down, so i had to cut part of the radiator mounts wider in order to fit the fittings in.

A nice easy test fit

I hope you are all enjoying the progress.

Lots to get done in a short amount of time! Just started on the last section of the body using the mould-able aluminium.

 

Finally got our hands on the grinder to cut this aluminium out faster!

 

2jYEA5f.jpg

 

Used some tape to hold the sheets in place while i am working with the build.

 

7unwGtg.jpg

 

Got the grinder out to cut the curve shape into the back end.

 

kU1Atu3.jpg

 

Turned out nicely if i do say so myself =)

 

uy1YTZX.jpg

 

Flipped the build over to repeat the same process

 

J9zP8Xm.jpg

 

To keep that nice even edge i put some foam in between the top and bottom pieces

 

ObbkKa9.jpg

 

Then added a bit of tape to keep it all in place while the foam dries

 

9DJSjgf.jpg

 

All dry now so time to carve out the excess foam and clean the edges up!

I hope you guys like the progress so far!
