    Default Project: External Radiator Case - Completed

    I've been commissioned to build an external radiator case which is destined to sit on the top of an 800D. The case will be made entirely from aluminum and built to house two triple radiators.

    Here's a drawing of the case:



    The frame of the case is made from 1-inch channel, 1/2 x 3/4-inch and 3/8 x 3/4 flat bar.




    The corner blocks were made from 3/8 x 3/4 flat bar:




    The alignment of all three corner pieces turned out to be spot-on:




    The frame is fastened together with self tapping stainless screws.

    I cut out the bottom, top and sides of the case with my hand held router, guided by a straight edge.



    The entire bottom of the case is perforated aluminum so as not to impede the exhaust from the 800D, eventually standing on some nice beefy mnpctech case feet.

    Cut out the openings in the sides for the rad exhaust.






    The back of the case has a removable sub-panel to make it easier to reconfigure things in the future:



    I drilled two 18mm holes for Koolance's quick-disconnect panel fittings.
