    Ok well learned some more stuff. Using a dremel to cut metal is really loud and slow, and I'm not sure how I can put my apartment neighbors through that much noise for 20 minutes. I don't know what excuse I would use if I had to explain it to building management.

    Here are some new pics. I got the fan and built a little box adapter to vent the air out.

    I was a sheet metal guy in the air force. When we did patches we would cut a circle, oval, or square with rounded corners. The way we would cut a hole was a drill bit. You drill around your circle with a small drill bit. The wholes would touch and be just inside your mark. When it was out we would use a rotary file to clean the hole up.

    I got five gallon buckets full of nuts and bolts. Stuff comes in handy. Hell I save nails. Beat them straight and reuse them.

    That metal actually looks thin enough to cut with metal shears. There are three in a set. A left hand, right hand, and straight cut. The handles will be yellow, green, and red. The colors let you know what cut they make.

    I might finally be reviving this ;) I have a garage now and tools - only problem is it's so cold, my garage isn't heated so I don't know if it's OK to be cutting metal in -25c

    I kind of changed my mind too. It's such a waste IMO to put cheap LEDs in such a cool box - I'm thinking about putting 4 Vero 13 gen 7's in there. The problem I thought about shortly after I started this project was If I goto the trouble to cut apart the walls to fit cobs and then I decide I want nicer cobs later it might mess me up .

    14000 lumens in a 18x18 space? I think that should work just fine :)

    What do you think happens when some idiot rear ends you in their car and smashes up their radiator and a/c condenser? Poof - up in the air the refrigerant goes.
    Plenty of ventilation and all is well
