Haf-XB Mod/Build "Delt White Build"

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
**Hey guys I just got my Haf XB case in. It will be my summer project as I am done with finals and am now back home. I am going to do a couple modifications to the case. This is my first mod and first time making a thread of my own but I have always been a DIY kinda guy and I have always loved the look of modded cases, so lets give it a try!

List of Mods to Do:
Paint interior White
Paint certain exterior parts white
Make side windows
Back fan grills
Paint PCI brackets
Top panel window
Laser Etch the top window

Finished the self-etching primer

Finished up the priming and painting of the motherboard and the pci brackets and power supply brackets. I really like how everything is turning out. I still need to figure out what I will be doing with the side panels.

I use Rustoleum Self-Etching Primer and Rustoleum gloss white automotive enamel. As long as you take your time and really mist your coats, it will turn out great. I also use a Rustoleum gloss clear coat on top of the 5th or 6th coat.
