[Case Mod] - TC Computers Beige Case Revival

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
This is my first time post on OCN. I've always marveled at old school pc mods, and have always wanted to do my own! So I decided to start this log when I got my hands on an old beige case.

I got the case from a coworker. First thing I did was rip out all the components. Talk about old school. Looks like the components date back to 1998. I have a couple of ideas as to what I want to do. I know I want to do a side panel window and add some more air flow to the case. I am open to suggestions, comments, and criticism!

Here's a picture of components and outside of the case.

Side panel got finished. I used a dremel and probably about 10 cutting wheels. Pretty happy how it turned out.

Clean cut on the case. I have been itching to mod a beige case as well.

What is your plan on the inside? Black paint, maybe some LEDs?

I plan on painting the inside black. For surface prep ill wash it and then Sand it
Down then probably wash it again. I took a trip out of town this week so I will update as soon as possible! Thanks for viewing!

Sort of... I did alot of work on it, then sort of lost interest once I got the computer inside. I still have a few things I want to do with the case once I find time. Here are some pictures that I took throughout the build. What I have left to do is to make way for two 120 mm fans on the top panel of the case. I was then going to purchase some fan grills to cover the fan. Cant decide what fan grills to go with though.
