Restoring a NMS8245

My new project I’m working on is to restore a butchered NMS8245
I’ve got this machine from someone who expanded it with a 2nd drive and an extra fan for cooling.

As you can see this is not the most clean way to add these extra’s and making it also hard to transport without breaking something.

After removing the drive and fan I found out that the case was realy butcherd and was looking for a way to give this machine a bit of it’s old face back.

In my opinion the only way to do this, is to cut out the grille and replace it with something that would fit in.

Using polyester putty to cover all the holes and gaps.

Almost done for spray painting.
