Im thinking about taking off the black strip with the logo in it and replacing it with a custom back-lit logo.

It is held on by screws behind the psu cover. The illumination comes from 2 leds glued to the bezel...very easy mod.



Changing out the color or effect is then easily obtained.

I wanted to show a little trick I use to warm up my paint as it has always worked for me. The nozzle just fits through the top allowing the entire can to be immersed in hot water:



I was also applying my final coat of paint and "phlat......." I hate aerosol cans!



Now I get to sand and prep everything all over again.....

Either cold paint, dirty nozzle or not shaken - "Shaken, not stirred" as Bond would say it :)

Sleeving came in last night...now I can start this and wait for better weather to paint.



I also received some presents from NZXT. I told them my front 120's had a "tick" sound when they were running, and they sent me 3 new ones. I also mentioned that my NZXT illuminated bezel had stripped screw holes, and they sent me a new front!



I have to start putting some of this stuff up for sale...my work room is getting really small!!!

Almost ready to primer...should only take another couple of hours. Powder coating is a real pain in the A$$ to get off!



What about green instead of white....hmmmmmmmmm

I have the first two primer coats on. A day to dry and sand and then final paint. I also had some time to start laying out the wiring scheme. The main cables will be a tri-color theme with accents of white. The green matches my new tubing perfectly, I'm very happy.



edit: Final coat of primer applied...it's getting there.

Had a little time to tape up the rads for painting. I'll be able to shoot the psu cover and both rads at the same time this week as we have a warming trend coming!!!
