And now, back to our regularly scheduled program:
Shrimpzone project 05:
So next, DK does some custom fitting of her lexan template, using a file and elbow grease.
Lexan is a good material for her purpose because it is heat and impact resistant, doesn't tend to distort, and is quite strong and durable. Plus, it was in her bins, ready for re-purposing.
The louvers, DK selected because of geometry. With them, she can use one or both, and they are square shaped, maximizing air flow per perimeter, minimizing the likelihood of whistling. She chose rather small, because she's coming right off the aorta, and there will be a lot of thrust there and little resistance, so more air flow even though the orifice is kinda small. It was a bit of a crap shoot, really, because she's doing this The Syndicate way, not the Standard way. More on that later.
Plus, they look coo-el. DK has a weakness for shiny. And "industrial suave" styling.
