I'm super siked to announce that Performance-PCs.com is sponsoring me with some gear.
Now for the unexpected results. I needed to put a clear coat on the rust because it would rub off just like real rust. In doing so the color of the rust went from a orange/red/brown to more of a dark brown. I actually like this color because it looks more like leather. Let me know what you guys think.
Mid plate with clear on it and the mobo tray under it.
I liked it so I keep putting clear coat on the rest of the parts. Here is the mobo tray painted and assembled.
Still has a rust look to it.
And compared to the PSU bracket.
So while I was painting the rest of the parts I decided to start modding the "Thermal Armor" of the mobo.
And here are the final results. Not sure I'm going to keep the skinny piece between the MOS block and the CPU, it isn't perfectly straight and looks in like its in the way of the design. Not sure yet what I will do.
Not sure how I will paint it but here are a few things I figured out recently.
I'm going to paint all the water blocks gold!
I will paint the 2 ribbed parts of the exterior gold.
The front bezel, back side of the case and side panels will have wood grain vinyl applied.
The Thermal Armor will either be rusted, wood grain or covered in leather!
GPU back plates will be the same as the Thermal Armor.
Things I have ordered:
50mm fan for mobo

Silverstone Slim DVD Drive bay
Things I need to order
BP Dual D5 Pump top
