need ideas for sorta military themed rig

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
nothing to extreme. i dont have any experience modding cases or anything, so probably more along the lines of painting, sleeving, small mods or addtions that i could do easily.

i have been considering painting the case some sort of flat tan ( hey, im a mechanic for the military and love these trucks im surrounded by everyday) maybe gloss. maybe get real crazy and get multi-cam hydro-graphic printed (water transfer printing) on. and after looking through some sleeving guides i think i want to try sleeving with paracord something like multi-cam or desert-camo as seen on RideZiLightning's custom sleeving page

i have been keeping some small things off damaged trucks (getting turned in anyway) like some switch's with the red covers. some other small things i want to incorporate, like Oshkosh and Force Protection little badges out of the horn covers from some of our MRAP vehicles, they are about the same size as the Cpu and Windows badge stickers people put on there towers.

if i could theme it for a specific truck it would definitely be a HEMTT m977 or m984. i would love to do it but i dont think i would be able to accomplish anything worthwhile.
would painting some plastic parts on the motherboard, carefully with something like model paint be to far?

Paint a HAF-X.

You should be golden after that.

An ASUS Sabertooth board (X58, P67 or 990FX - Whatever you fancy)

I say go for P67, because the P67 sabertooth motherboard has the TUF thermal armor that'd really go with the military theme.

And yeah, get a HAF.
