Also be ready to sand off any small bugs/dirt clumps if they fall on it. Its always better to wait for it to dry and sand rather then try to wipe it of wile its still tacky.

Just thought I would leave that here...

Don't ever buy a house in the woods...

I ended up doing a bunch of running today. No modding got done. But I do have a question.

You guys think I should stick to the current color of matte black inside and out with green MoBo Tray and case floor?

Also, I wonder is I should bondo the rough spots on the case or just leave them for character marks?

in turkey, that speeds are still counted as low, but isn't slower than %94 of turkey. you might consider yourself lucky if you got that speed in turkey. 1gpbs fiber optic networking gives around 10mbps. you pay for 1k mbps and you get 10 only. anyhow, probably impossible to use internet i guess?

Probably good enough to surf, and way better than the old dial-up, but I guess you are not watching much online tv smile.gif

Personally I would keep it black and leave the rough spots for character. An 85 year old box shouldn't be made to look like new imo smile.gif

You could try use some of this antiquing rust stuff to add some effect, but less than they are using in this video (see effect towards the end)



Hope your internet will allow you to watch the vid biggrin.gif

I love that Project NOTalis video. yeah, I don't want it to look like a sunken ships black box smile.gif But I might add some Accents

Yeah I can watch videos, i just start them and then pause and come back 5+ mins later to watch them. (Or watch them at work)

As far as the paint goes I'm giving it a Matte Black finish with no bondo or spot puddy first. I can always redo over that later if I Want. I cant undo bondo as easy. So we will go with that and see how it looks.

IDK how you do it. I was dying with 1.5 mbps because I went from having 10+ at my parents. We just got 3 mbps and its amazing how much 1,5 extra can do lol. It still takes me 25 hours to download 12gigs though lol.

Build is looking great!

Thanks, Bonkers..

I Haven't forgot about this build log. Been doing a little bit of stuff. Got the bottom Pan painted. But I ended up working every day since last Thursday (12th) No days off =No modding time. I'll be off on tuesday and hope to get this finished by August 3rd.

Cheers, Alder

Nice work on this Alders, I can't wait for it to be finished.
P.S Thanks for looking at my Mod I posted and for your feedback.
Both of us know how great it is to have people examine your work
