Ahh thanks I see - i'm gonna have black as the base coat, then a dark grey and then a dark red over that. How many layers of paint did you use? I'm just unsure whether mine will work as the base colour is the darkest colour but your base colour was the lightest colour.

Connie.....maybe a test first....got an extra panel?

I went light to dark.......you could try dark to lite...black, red, grey..........check here for some ideas:

info also in forums:
http://tacticalcamo.com/phpBB/viewforum.php?f=2&sid=71d2438ff405a8c031870f1b56ec5499


I know your pushing the timeline, not a good idea!!....this style of painting takes time....your gonna be pushing it, a week is not enough time.
My base coat was @2/3 light coats, then each layer was a little less.....remember your adding layers of paint and you don't want to create layer definition....then there will be lots of sanding to level all the layers out.....catch my drift?............light coats are needed coz of the layering.....heavy/medium coats might run and/or pool....NOT GOOD...

Also....colors closer together in tone are easier ....like , black, dark gray, light grey........or black, dark red and light red (not pink)......

Now the Fun Stuff begins......Making it all fit!

Started with the CPU cooler and RAM...

20272c14.jpg

Added EVGA 550ti.........Awaiting another card, had to send one back...damaged by UPS!

bfa53584.jpg

Some HDD's and SSD....also the PSU....

7eb5ee4d.jpg


Found this in the Sabertooth box.....from ASUS......put it on my PSU cover, might not keep it, we'll see!

d008e4ee.jpg



And of course....the NOT so Fun Stuff....CABLES!..

671b6ba0.jpg



Had to change on the go....
Case Feet had to be changed till I found a set that allowed the PSU to fit!...why do they come with large nuts ?...DON"T YOU DARE!.....You know what I mean!!!

and had to turn around the HDD rails and bend the stops down coz the Cover I made was too close to rail tabs.....
Minor things, but time consuming...

Tomorrow...
