    Defyant Modded "Tail" Lights!
    Still a work in progress :) it's kinda become my new hobby..... modding the work shed.

    It started maybe 15+ years ago with just a white RGB plex work bench in the corner of my garage and has now taken over the whole thing.

    I'm more into modding tail and head lights nowadays but still need to fill the 20+ year old case modding habbit.

    I tend to sit for hours on end designing drilling and soldering the custom panels for tail light mods.

    So i wanted a cool place with nice lighting and entertainment. Anyways don't be too critical as there's still a lot of plans to make it more practical.

    In the light of day :)

    Every things central with cable runners above to keep leads etc tidy.

    A lot of my power tools are packed away but the most common used are left out.
    Same with hand tools etc are also in tool boxes.

    [​IMG]

    To set the mood a bit ive gone with full RGB lighting , this can be set as static or i can just let it colour change.

    [​IMG]

    To the left ive added twin back lit routers. working with so much plex in headlight and case mods routing has become my goto tool for clean cuts and edges.

    [​IMG]

    And of course a DIY plex router bit caddy :)

    [​IMG]

    To the right is The PC and Screen and above is where all the bits and bobs are kept :)

    More tools and late night entertainment :) Cant miss a game during the footy season !

    [​IMG]

    A Little DIY Entertainment unit with DIY modded samsung speakers and a LV-Pin 2020 amp.

    [​IMG]

    The music is up high and it can get nice and loud :) soldering irons also kept up high.

    @ some stage i would really like to run Tripple Monitors up there tilted down on an angle.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    The middle area is where i do most of work soldering etc, Either good music or catching up on the footy through the headphones helps pass the time away :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And the Great Wall Of Fans ! and a AIO/rad or 2..
    pretty much just there to fill that area... didint want to see any more tools and these add a bit more colour.

    [​IMG]


    There's also a dremel area with plex bender scroll saw to the back area,

    [​IMG]

    With a saw cutting area to be finished and added........

    I'll be putting it to good use with a few small guides gpu bracket guides soon and a new case mod to come. :D



    Cheers.

    It's a very good idea. Setup so you can see all your parts & tools on the wall. Bravo :)

    Cheers Guys thanks :D it's not yet my dream shed but it's a not a bad place to spend all day :D

    @ miicah. There's an over head Vacuum that hangs down on a bendable arm, i just "poke" it @ the closest point. It gets 80-90% of the fly off the rest us usually sucked up with the porta vac.( 4th pic)

    Mate, your shed looks amazing!!

    It's nothing like my shed and I don't think I'd feel very at home in it lol, but I use mine for building engines, working on cars and bikes, projects for the house etc. All my PC stuff is done in the house.

    Never have I seen a shed that clean or organised though, mad respect for the effort!
