I thought id try my hand at etching the side panel of my case.

The picture doesn't do it any justice as you can't realy make out the details and the depth of the carving.

I still have to paint it with the UV paint i have comming in...that should help it stand out i think as it will match the UV loop.

What do you think...Loose it or Use it ?

I layed it out with a black marker and used a dremel tool to do the etching...it really more of a carving....picture doesn't show any of the depth or details...about 6 hrs in total

I say keep it. Nothing accents the PC more than such high level of detailing.
