Had some time tonight to snap a few shots of the side panel with tape removed. I put U channel on the edge to protect it till painting. Also, I cut the U channel a little bit long in case I need the trim/sand the edges a little more. BTW, the goal is the be finished with the mods this weekend for IB launch. Lets hope that happens, although painting is going to take some time and work is busy this week.

Plan is to hopefully get the chassis and top painted. if all else fails, the rest is easily removed and can be finished next week.

Well as I feared, then bondo/sheet metal combo used to fill the usb port hole didn't adhere well enough. I put some pressure on the spot and it fell out. So here is the new solution. Still need to fill it.

The extra holes along with the strong adhesive backing should be enough for it to withstand pressure now and improve the bond. The top looks terrible, but that will be sanded out when I go to paint. I also got fiberglass reinforced bondo to add some strength.

Work is a terrible thing... Great day to do some painting and just swung by UPS during lunch. New GFX card and RAM sitting in their boxes waiting to be opened and played with.

Redid the bondo tonight. This looks a lot stronger. It was difficult to get the bondo flush, so I used more than needed and built up over the level plane. Will sand this down tomorrow after it dries.

Back of the case - part 1 (more coming after I move the power plug.) The reason for this is that with foam on the back of the case for dampening, I don't want the adhesive backing to make the case sticky.

Waiting for a package from Fedex so decided to make some progress.

Getting ready:

After sanding:

The surfaces are flat, but need a little more work. Saving the last sanding till I am ready to paint so I don't have to redo it.

Well Fedex still isn't here so pushing on.

Acrylic cut for the window:

Templates for wire management:

Mobo tray taped and marked:
photobucket-30894-1335375929467.jpg

Need to get the last few holes marked, then I will dismantle the case for cutting. Also considering filling the holes on the top bars. Lian Li uses universal bars for their cases apparently. They are not visible, but it bothers me.

Gotta lot of respect for anyone that can do a good job of cable routing in this case. Built a computer for my wife's aunt with this case and I have to say it was challenging.
