Yesterday I started playing around with some 1/8 sintra. I have a whole sheet that 4'x8' so I'm not too worried about screwing it up. I have lots. I started to try and make bracket for the power cell lights to sit on. Tried 3 different times with different heights and ended up using the first one. (Isn't that way it always goes...)
I was at first going to mount them like bishop did with them on top but the little plastic supports I have were too short. Then I looked at Phil's build and saw he cut a slot and mounted them underneath. I still want to try and keep it screen accurate-ish and mount it with 3 rivets through the mobo so I came up with this.
I got some plastic screws today from HD but not enough plastic nuts because I needed some to be used as a spacer (see below) so I used a combination. I may swap them out later but we'll see.
And it still works!! This is a new one, my first one has a burnt out (sort of, it blinks on and off but not the way it's supposed to) led that I'll need to replace.
After some trial and error getting it to line up and fit under the shell I had to do some modifications.
I added in a middle support to stop it wobbling.
Perfect? No, but I have a tone of this sintra now (thanks Phil for putting me onto this) so I can always try again but for now it'll do the trick.
I'm going to have to work every night in the next 2 weeks to get this ready but I might just be able to pull it off.
