Update: Wrapping, Spraying & Lighting Test

I started the first coat of paint for the interior. I decided not to use a Primer as the current finished was fine as it was. Not much else to say really, everyone knows the basic process...







Next I wrapped the PSU in the Green vinyl. My battery died during this process so I only have the one photo. Once I had wrapped the whole thing, I had to individually cut out the air vents.



Now was the part I was dreading the most, wrapping the front bezel. This took me about 45 minutes to complete. I used a hair dryer to heat the vinyl.









Added the new front plate. I'm very sorry, I don't have photo's of the process of making the front plate.





Getting ready for lighting test and a sneak peek of, roughly, what it will look like when finished. The PSU is only in there for the lighting test, I have not put any components in yet. Also, the side window panel is not properly fitted I just lent it against the case as I kept scratching the paint when trying to put it on and take it off.







Getting pretty close to finishing now, plus it was late by the time I got to this stage so I finished of by dismantling the 120mm rear fan ready for painting.





I want to keep the Cooler Master hologram sticker, so I put it on some of the left over backing paper from the vinyl to keep it clean. I then masked over the rear of the fan where I don't want paint.





That's all for now. Hope you like it so far! biggrin.gif

Looks great. I had my doubts of how well the green would looks but it seems to go quite well. What are you using for lighting? LEDs? Cathodes?

LED strip lights. One will be inside the case and one will be underneath the case to give a nice effect. I am working on the front blow hole today. So so long as I dont mess up, I'll have a new update.

Yeah, after seeing it in the dark I may have two inside the case and one underneath. I'll add the latest work log photos later on tonight.

Update: Front Bezel Blowhole

I was going to chicken out and not bother doing the front blow hole, but I thought, f**k it if I mess up I'll just make a new front cover. I used my new dremel with the fine point engraver. I found the cutting discs far to big for a job this small.

Step 1: Tracing the design on to the masking tape.


Step 2: Starting cutting a thin line to outline the design.


Step 3: Cutting out the design.




Step 4: Design is now cut out. I think for my first time even picking up a dremel, I did a pretty good job. Not the most perfect cut. I cleaned up the edges with a sanding bits.


Step 5: Put the black vinyl and cut out the design.




I also sprayed the case fan blades from the rear 120mm case fan.




Interior paint now finished and dried. Took three coats to get the finished I wanted. The tiny ring on the cardboard is the front LED holder, it was chrome.





I'm back to work tomorrow so updates won't be as frequent. It's also half term(school holidays) so I work all day. I'm a chef by profession for those who are wondering.

I'll try and take some more photos, I've put the cages back in, fitted the rear case fan and put the PSU back in. The rest is still in "ghetto" setup.
