Gonna build a steampunked pc!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Alrighty, this should be fun....hopefully. I'm gonna build a complete steampunked rig. Tower, monitor, mouse and keyboard. Perhaps even a speaker system if I can find good quality speaker and subwoofer for cheap. It will be for my gal, who just broke her ankle and won't be coming over to my place for a least 8 weeks, so I can get a lot of parts collected and strown about.
And I've got 4 months till her birthday.

Tomorrow I'm hitting up wally world for various spray paints I know I'll use, and check out the Hobby Lobby to see what they carry in the way of gears and trinkets. I've seen some total badness rigs around on Google, and I've got some cool ideas. I know the tower will have some external rotating gears for effect.

I'll try to keep pics posted on my progress, and that should motivate me to be consistent with building. LOL.

Anybody have any sort of advice on paints, techniques, tricks of the trade for modding...anything feel free to post.

You may want to have this moved to the build log section if it's going to have lots of pics and details.
