Thanks, Man... I just uploaded more pictures..


Behold..

I had to drill out the holes for the new screws. I guess 2 coats of paint built up.



Mounted the PSU.. Looks cool in there.






Some more Close-Ups...





I'm sitting here looking at this thing and I think the latches and springs are not going to cut it. I just don't want to put anything on the lid of the case. So i might make the springs into latching supports. that way I lift the lid myself. But it stays up when I open it. I'm still molling it over. I'm not totally happy with the plan as it stood.

I love the build. But I'm not a fan of the green. I think it would have come out even more incredible if you could have gotten it a rusted copper color.

looks good man, oh no you dont like the latches and springs? wanting to change the idea after you fab it up and put it together...sounds like me..lol. when I get a piece made then I see something someone has done or a new idea pops into my head it really sucks. the part I am working on right now has been changed and modified many times over the past few weeks and is driving me mental. The funny part I decided to modify it again tonight. its never ending. good luck.thumb.gif

Yeah, I looked for a paint like that. I tried a hammered copper paint but it ended up looking too orange.

Haha, Yeah I'm trying to rethink the springs and latches.. We will see what I can come up with.

I might have a Different Idea. But don't worry I can use the springs on my upcoming steam-punk build

Also I have a crappy sneak peak picture of the rear fan grill.

It would have looked cool if you could find that really thin speaker mesh covering they used to use , it would have to be transparent enough so that when the computer is running the lights let you see the grills though , theyre too nice to hide for sure ! I was just thinking that light brown mesh , so when its off it still like a radio..

Haha, Yeah I wonder if the person I bought this from would have figured this was the " Give this poor old case a new lease on life" I had in mind. Weld it, Chop holes in It, Sandblast it, Paint it. Its turned out pretty cool thou...

Hmm, I may try that out when I redo this case in a year or two.

One more Picture for you guys. I got a MNPCtech 80mm fan grill for the back of the case. I had to file one of the holes a bit to git it installed.

I think I'm ready to bite the bullet and move the Motherboard over. I need that installed to have a guide for the custom length wires I'm making for the PSU. So I will start on that tomorrow after I get a bit of sleep.

Cheers Alder
