Hello guys, Back with a update for you. I was able to get the case wire wheeled off IE mostly rust free. Also pro tip the little wires will break off the wire wheel and fly at you at subsonic speed. Wear Safety Glasses.. I have been told I'm far to fat to pull off the Swarthy eye-patch look anyway. I did get a few wires in-bedded in my shirt thou. I can't fathom how bad that would be in a eye... yikes
Here it is all shiny.
I also tapped out the 4 holes that hold the bottom of the case on.
Look how shiny the wire wheel gets the metal...
I gave the lid a good coat of the stuff. I think a bunch is going to be sanded off anyhow.
Its all wet and ready for assembly
Here we are about a hour later. Its about 9126 degrees in this shop this morning so its drying So fast. I'm taking it home now. Mild paint smell in the cab of the truck.. XD
Ok, so [Black Box] is finally black. Whats next you ask? I'm glad you asked otherwise its just me talking to myself out here in the woods. XD
Next: Cutting the holes for I/O shield and PCE-slots also the hole for the PSU.Finish the 8 pin EPS plug wires on the PSU, and get it all back together
Mount the Motherboard tray in the case. And test fit a old Matx MoBo in there.
Order the Mobo and start getting all the wires ran.
Fabricate the hinges and latches for the lid.
Fabricate the HDD/SSD and DVD drive holders
Well that about it for now. I'm so excited about this build and will be poring a lot of time into it the next 3 days. I realized I need to finish it in time for the launch of GW2 as when that happens I will be wanting to play... As always thanks for checking my build log out and questions and suggestions are always welcome.
Thanks, AlderEdited by AlderonnX - 5/29/12 at 5:53pm
