Well it's 1 3/8 inch smaller front to back, and 3/4" shorter when you account for the 800D's feet.

I think the bolts looks cool, and I could paint them orange if I change my mind. I thought about using double sided tape, but the kind I have is 1/16 thick and dust would stick to it. So I decided on bolts for an almost flush fit. I'm using nice allen pan-head bolts.

I have finished repainting the side door, I just need some really thin, really sticky double sided tape before I can put the door back together.
I'm going to try to track some down this week. Here's a picture of the door skin.

img0293dz.jpg

While paint was drying on some of the other case parts, I started filing on the back door logo- the mighty MadKat emerges!

img0296xr.jpg

Here are the other painted case parts, as you can see, the pci holder is orange on one side....

img0298rm.jpg

and white on the other side. The psu holder is painted on the outside-

img0301qv.jpg

After a bunch of filing and sanding, it's looking pretty sharp thumb.gif

img0305hp.jpg

This will have some mesh and orange acrylic behind it and be backlit smile.gif

img0302gl.jpg

I ordered a 3-in-2 hot-swap hdd cage along with a replacement fan for it, and some cold cathodes lighting for the rear door.

More to come and thank you for the comments!

Hey guys-
I have felt pretty cr@ppy the last couple days so I stayed home (again). I was able to get some more modding done but I feel guilty and am dreading next weeks paycheck >< Anyway, I need a couple more pieces of mesh so I grab the sheet and lay down some tape and some strait, square lines.

img0312xv.jpg

I used my jigsaw to cut them out, then a file to srtaiten up the cuts. Finally I used some 220 grit sandpaper to scuff 'em up a bit for primer.
This really is some very nice mesh wubsmiley.gif

img0313klk.jpg

I use this paint pen to apply some paint to the edge of the cut I made in the bottom of the frame, much easier than masking and painting. It's also very handy for any touchups or accidental paint scrapes. I've had it for a while now. I think its going to be empty soon, I forget where I got it but will have to buy another sometime as it's a must have-

img0315fg.jpg

They painted case pieces have dried for a couple days and I can wait no longer so I place the pci bracket in first, then the motherboard, then grab my rivet gun and some rivets.

img0320rf.jpg

A rivet gun is needed for any serious case modder. This one has a rotatable head to get into tight places. Also shown are the white rivets I'm using.

img0321zb.jpg

a few minutes later (and about 30 rivets) I've got the pci bracked, motherboard tray, 5.25" cage and floor attached. I left a few rivets out on the 5.25" cage, as I want to make sure I can slide in the hot swap cages without chewing up the paint.

Backside of mainboard tray-

img0341vj.jpg

A couple sneak peek pictures of what we'll be seeing in the end-

img0323bf.jpg

img0326sn.jpg

and completely unrelated, I though I would take a couple pictures of an onyx lamp that I made, sitting ot top of a granite chess board that I also made. I made these at work, I have been a marble mason for many years now. Lights on-

room dimmed-

Stay tuned! and post some comments please rolleyes.gif

Why didn't I see the white earlier? headscratch.gif So it's going to be white/black on the inside and orange/black on the outside, huh? I think I've found my new fav. paint, that hemi orange looks wicked thumb.gif
Got much painting left?

lol btw, have you made pieces too or just the chess board?

Yeah black and white on the inside with orange accents. Not a whole lot of paainting left, still need to paint the right side door, and maybe a clear coat on the door panels.
I just make the board, i bought a nice wooden set of chess pieces wink.gif

Thanks!

I'm trying top track down some strong, thin, double-sided tape/adheasive for mounting the door skins back onto the plastic door frames..
Any suggestions?
