    Default Amiga 4000D custom case

    Work still in progress but decided to share it. I will have to tweak around few bits but its almost perfect. More pictures here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...Im?usp=sharing

    I have it back from painters. I still tested it with bare PCB boards, hopefully I will find time soon to put actual board inside.

    An improvement of the original case without the uglyness of towering it. I like it.

    I am welder/fabricator. I measured everything myself having only PCBs of motherboard and daughterboard. I already made few custom cases for A500, A600, A2000 and now A4000D. It is laser cut 2mm mild steel. Tack welds, lots of tapping, countersinking and grinding. Took me about 10 hours to fabricate it from laser cut components.

    Care to produce more for fellow amigans?

    Do you intend to paint it or will you leave it as bare metal?

    Hi, it is unfortunately quite expensive, I am charged 120 for laser cut. It has to be painted. Powder coating is in region of 30. I spent about 10 hours (welding, grinding/linishing, tapping, countersinking). Final price would be in region of 300 plus postage. It is at paint shop now. I will post more pictures soon.

    That is a work of art! The unpainted one looks even better, but overall I would take any colour

    I would be well up for one! even in kit form, unpainted! I really like what you have done for the other machines, just perfect! I am a big fan of Lian-Li cases, mainly the stuff they put out years back like the PC-60. So your cases remind of them because of the no-fuss clean lines, no fancy gimmicks just a case doing its job of being a case and holding an a4000
