Hi! I am聽John Patrick Sy Wong聽of聽WiP PC Modz聽from Baguio City, Philippines.聽 I've been modding PC since 2013 and been joining local competitions and Rig Shows around our place. PC Modding has been my passion and hobby, that until now, I am still learning and developing my skills. I love聽exploring different techniques and making unique projects/builds. I have joined #CMWS for the past 3 years, and every year, I keep on learning a lot. Gives me that "push" to strive harder and work harder.聽You may visit my Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/WONGinPROJECT) and Youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/c/WiPPCModz) to see some聽projects and builds that I've done.聽:)

In this year's competition, I am joining the scratch build category. A brief intro on this project I will be working on is based on some vintage聽cars, particularly the concept of a Chevy 60's Impala. The project will be named: "Low Rider".

Be sure to stay tuned for updates. Enjoy the mods and good luck to all :)馃憤

Now all you need is a keyboard and mouse, then you're ready to play games or even have a party with the sound system on it's trunk :D馃憤

This project is made possible聽by MSI, Team Group & Cooler Master. Huge thanks to our partners!聽鉂わ笍

鉁达笍Part 2 -聽The Chassis鉁达笍

In building a car, we聽usually start聽with聽the chassis. This marks聽the beginning of our project.

I ordered a metal sheet with checkered pattern, together with 4 actuators to be used on 4 wheels that I bought on our local hardware store.

P1160647.thumb.JPG.7da542d9b6bed44bba5d0a7612e1e8ef.JPG

Starting from scratch, I聽made a sample using a folded paper, this is to easily determine the exact measurements and guide me where I should cut out some parts on the metal sheet.

P1160648.thumb.JPG.f0b54db6becde66f0fb28fb4766fa801.JPG

P1160659.thumb.JPG.e1a39eb1e94c649e62f6469ae4283117.JPG

I measured, cut and folded the metal sheet using combination square, triangle ruler, angle grinder, mini hammer and pliers.

I don't have a welding machine around my work area, so to join the edges together, I used a drill, vise grip (to hold the portion where I made some holes,聽and a riveter.

164346140_P1160671(000824)2020-12-04-18-04-05.thumb.JPG.70f1cd2f5a59200e5d704d5c50b37e11.JPG

The part where I will install the actuators needs to be reinforced so I used an聽old case (side panel), folded it to the right size and portion plus some scrap aluminum bar to hold them together.

P1160691.thumb.JPG.d4ab1dd0d3858963a70b9f3e7f8cda22.JPG

Next is to cut some opening at the back for the placement of the trunk (cover). On the sides for the doors,聽and on the聽front, where the radiator of the Cooler Master MasterLiquid 240L will be mounted.

1121188723_P1160695(005774)2020-12-04-18-23-01.thumb.JPG.3ac54b40edaedfc9239cfe41aaa76b09.JPG

P1160712.thumb.JPG.518c402c571596055f641aba36ab1bf9.JPG

Now the metal work is done, it's time to sand and file the chassis to remove the sharp edges, rust and to smoothen the surface.

P1160759.thumb.JPG.95ec6ddb9bd1a73db110562bb7445542.JPG

I wanted this chassis to be chromed out. Actually the shop where I ordered this patterned metal sheet offers a stainless(shinny) variant, but it's way out of the budget. Stainless is very expensive聽馃槄

Chrome dipping is also expensive on automotive shops, so I think of a cheap solution on how to make this chromed, a metallic sticker :D馃挕.

P1160764.thumb.JPG.4fddfb71191f314c1762d93a52ed6b3c.JPG

I used a lacquer thinner to clean the grease, dirt and particles on the surface so the sticker would stick on it firmly.1591101414_P1160786(003433)2020-12-04-18-55-43.thumb.JPG.b2e54879d512942889bde953388df4b0.JPG

With the help of a heat gun, it made the sticker soft, enough to mold on to the checkered pattern design of the metal sheet.

Not bad with the result right? :)

Next is the actuator installation. I cut the mounting hole/brace of the actuator on the bottom part because I want to install聽it fixed on the chassis without any other movement except up and down only.聽

1055832938_P1160705(006389)2020-12-04-19-12-41.thumb.JPG.86df146019fb00ecc26be569b3f67c86.JPG

Before wrapping the chassis with metallic sticker, I pre-drilled some holes where the actuators will be positioned. (also added few holes on the front and back part of the chassis because I want the hood and the trunk to lift up and down automalically, so a total of 6 pcs of actuators will be installed.)

P1160808.thumb.JPG.0288edc695efc8c6b3c47c4278af47f2.JPG

Next are the wheels installation. But before that, in order for the actuators not to split later on when this car mod is finished while it goes up and down, we need to make a frame at least聽to hold them in position, just to be sure on the quality and sturdiness of this project we are making. We don't want this base to be broken later on when we finished installing everything. :D

To make this frame,聽I used a full threaded rod, S-hook, nuts, stainless tubing, eye bolt and thick cable ties.

P1160812.thumb.JPG.e82d0e90039ba41b4372721bb616478c.JPG

P1160811.thumb.JPG.c84f57f7a0f523a1ac13e208ecff6fd3.JPG

P1160828.thumb.JPG.f87092de5368a0e5db4109dc7d0efb55.JPG

Again, because we don't have a welding machine, I improvised on how to join the full threaded rod and聽an eye bolt together using thick cable ties.

1893945660_P1160840(000600)2020-12-04-20-44-42.thumb.JPG.94fb650e08361f49f451696bdfa2a98d.JPG

I have tested the strength of these by pulling a heavy object, just to make sure everything is in place and it won't pull off easily when forced. The thread of the eye bolt and threaded rod holds each other together specially when it is tightly compressed.聽Now, the purpose of the stainless tubes is to conceal the ugly look of the threaded rod, plus it serves as a聽double lock聽on the cable ties as it adds grip when inserted to the stainless tubes.

1222641406_P1160838(000524)2020-12-04-20-46-41.thumb.JPG.29091ae6d9a406e98bec70b03705b526.JPG

Next, the S-hook. Because it is impossible to install the threaded rod directly to the actuator's mounting hole, we needed a "daisy-chain-like" mount so that聽the actuators can freely move whenever they are activated. I bent聽the S-hook 90 degrees and locked them to the eye bolt we installed on the threaded rod using this bench vise.

Now the frame is done, it's time to mount it on the actuators using threaded rod that I cut earlier and nuts.

Now we are done on the under part, It's time to move on to the actuator's switches. Using acrylic sheet, we made a custom control box, imitating the design of a real hydraulic control box from Low Riders.

By the way, that silver 馃憜, irregular shaped thing on top of the acrylic are magnets. It will be useful later on when mounting the controller to it's place.

And now some painting and stickers聽馃憞

All wires done. The Switch, USB 3.0 hub and 6 toggle switches all connected. Before finalizing the design, I added another aluminum bar on the mid front part of the chassis. this aluminum bar is installed with piano hinges ( for the hood mounting) and some magnets also to hold the controller we made.

Now for the final touch of the controller, we cut a sticker using Silouhette Curio with WiP PC ModZ old english font.

鉁达笍Part 3 - The Trunk鉁达笍

On our third part of this project, it's the Trunk part. As we all know, Lowrider cars are mostly customized. Their trunks usually contains LCD monitors, amplifiers and speakers instead of grocery items or baggages.聽馃槄 So we replicate that kind of setup.聽To begin with, I cut a portion of the metal sheet on the chassis. The purpose of this is to make the back part a little bit lighter.

Then I made 2 mounting holes for the power cable extensions. One for the power supply, the other one is for the mini amplifier.

The speakers I used are the old, damaged ones lying in our storage. I just managed to repair it, rewired some ran off wires, took聽off聽the mini amplifier from it's聽original case then remade a compact one.

Next is the mount聽of the power supply to the chassis. here I used an聽old PSU聽bracket then mounted it on the chassis. By the way I am installing here a Cooler Master MWE Bronze 550w power supply.

And then for the covers, I used sintra board. Why sintra board? because it is light weight.聽:D聽Plus it's easy to cut, then easy to stick it with velvet cloth. Yes I聽won't be painting it, I will be covering it with velvet cloth, just like a real car trunk texture.聽:)

For the part that I cut earlier on the chassis, I will be covering it with purple acrylic. I also installed rubber door guards on the edges of it.

Next are the speakers. I also took them off from their original case then made a custom box聽using also sintra board.

After cutting and shaping the sintra boards, time to cover them with velvet cloth. I used rugby to stick the cloth.聽:)聽Color purple to match the color of the exterior, as I am planning聽to paint my low rider聽purple.聽

Before installing the speakers, I reinforced the inside of the sintra board/boxes with body filler/putty.

When the body filler has cured聽and the paint has dried up, it's time to rewire and install the speakers.

鉁达笍聽Part 4 - The Engine聽鉁达笍

A car won't run when there is no engine. Same goes with computers, so for the part 4 of our project, we have installed all the hardware that will boot up our Low Rider.. But before we start assembling the components, we made some covers "under the hood", this is to avoid any contact on the metal parts of the chassis to our precious components that may cause ground/damage. Starting off with this divider that serves as "dashboard" on the interior part.聽:)

Next are the sides. Again I used sintra board. Then instead of painting it, I used vinyl carbon stickers. This is to match the design of the motherboard.

By the way, before I fixed everything on its position, I connected a 12v RGB connector going outside just in case I would install led strips later on on the exterior part of the car. :)

Not the regular mounting on the PCIe slot, I used a Li-Heat PCIe Riser聽so I can place the GPU turning upside down, with the PCIe on top so we can make and install a custom shroud/cover, showing off our sponsors. :)聽 Before that, I removed the bracket that is installed on the GPU to save up some space.

鉁达笍聽Part 5 - The Interior聽鉁达笍

Alright so we're done with the chassis, the trunk and聽the engine, here in part 5, we'll be doing the interior of our low rider! :)

First off, the installation of the Team Group T-Force Delta Max SSD on the "dashboard".

Then some managing of cables before we cover it..

Next, the wrapping of the edges with white leather.. I still used rugby to stick the leather on to the surface.

Also I used chrome door guards, for added design/accent, plus聽it helps hold the leather on hard to stick corners.

For the floor matting, I still used sintra board and covered it聽with聽purple velvet cloth to match the design/color of the trunk. Plus it adds contrast to the white leather.

Next are the car seats. Still I'm using sintra board to make the frame of the seats, then covered it with white leather. I used staples as an alternative for gun tacker to attach the leather.

When test fitting is done, I affixed the seats with scrap aluminum angle bar and screws.

What else are missing? Steering wheel and auto gauges :)

I made some with the use of acrylic. I copied聽the Team Group logo on the steering wheel to match the SSD.

For the gauge, I painted the circles purple, then attached some "bling bling" to replicate the dials. :D

Then for the steering wheel, I attached it to a stainless rod with rubber stopper and screw on the tip which will serve as the stand/mount..

鉁达笍Part 6聽- The Body Kit鉁达笍

This is the last stage of our worklog, the making of the body kit of this Low Rider project. For the body kit, I mainly used acrylic instead of sintra board like on the interiors of the build. Why acrylic? simply because it is more rigid than sintra board, it is paintable and can be bent using a heat gun. The bending is important because it will show the shape of the car and emphasize the design. So to begin with, I started on the trunk cover.

I used chloroform to stick the acrylic together, I made a frame to make the trunk cover reinforced because this will serve as the monitor mount.

Sand,prime then top coat... The color that I chose to paint it is a metallic blue violet.

When the paint dried up, I added some decals to camouflage the mounting screws.

In order to install these fenders, I made some "sliders", in this manner, I can easily remove the fenders whenever I want to repaint it or if I will change some parts inside the Low Rider.

Now we're getting close, time to make the tail lights. I bought some bike reflectors then used a chrome spray paint's聽cap to make it as the holder of the reflectors, in this way, it will replicate the design of the Low Rider car's tail light. :)

Next, the Headlights and the grill.. Same as the tail light, the cover I used are bike reflectors then house it on a chrome wrapped grill. then for the grill itself, that's a stainless BBQ聽grill scrap that I cut out.
