As for paint, have you checked out SpookedJunglist's Guide?

I read that over a while ago. Forgot all about it.


And when I was voting I was stuck between voting for yours and B3ar's...but I ended up voting for you because I've never seen anything close that looks like yours...everyone in that competition did a kick ass job, as well - I was just amazed at both of yours.

Anywho, played around a bit in SketchUp 6 and then "painted" it in Photoshop. What I'm thinking of doing:

Best paint texture I could get...But you get the idea. (I only added 4 5.25 bays because I'm an idiot.)


Gunna use painters tape and either add a flame like this, or do a more "tribal" flame...haven't decided yet. I'm better at doing tribal ones, but tribal looks better on side panels (ie, on cars) than it does on the top. (ie, on the hood of cars.) I'll see.


I was looking through some old pictures on my 80GB HDD that I had laying around...and I found this one. I like it.


Side panel will probably change though..

Sorry for the double post, but I got a "shopping list" of stuff. Everything is semicheap, but damn do the costs add up.

Quote:

Getting:

CM Centurion 5 Case
Price: $60
It's the case. =O

Kyrlon Fusion "Textured Shimmer" Black
Price: $10 x3(?)
A textured black spray with metallic flakes. Doesn't require primer or sanding.

Kyrlon Fusion "Textured Shimmer" Red
Price $10 x4(?)
A texture red spray with metallic flakes. Doesn't require primer or sanding.

Green 1/4" Painter's Tape
Price: $3 a roll
1/4" painters tape. B3ar said it cost him about $3 a roll.

Blue 1/8" tape.
Price: $7 a roll
1/8" painters tape. B3ar said it cost him about $7 a roll.

Rosewill 120MM White LED Fan
Price: $3.99 + S&H
Fan for the rear of the case. Exhaust. ~70CFM.

Rosewill 80MM White LED Fan
Price: $2.29 each, $4.58 total + S&H
Fan for the intake of the case and for the fan controller.

OKGear 36" SATA II Silver Cable
Price: $2.99 + S&H
Silver/White to match the LEDs in the case.

Thermaltake A2376 HDD Cooling Bracket
Price: $4.99 + S&H
Cools the HDD while staying in a 3.5" bay.


Undecided On Buying:
Red LED Acrylic FootStep Case Feet
Price: $11.99 + S&H
Case feet with red LEDs. Will give me clearance and add more red to the case. Main reason is so I can add a 120mm fan to the bottom of the case, but I'm not

sure if I'm gunna do that.

Red Aluminum Thumb Screws (10pk)
Price: $.89 + S&H
Matches the case, lets me not have to whip out a screw driver everytime I wanna open my case. Plus it's cheap.

Nexus DiskTwin HDD Dampener
Price: $16.99 + S&H
Makes the HDD quieter, but requires it to be mounted in a 5.25 bay. Gets rid of the purpose of a 3.5" TT cooler bracket, though.

Dual 12" White Cold Cathode
Price: $5.99 + S&H
Between the red and white version. Red may look more like pink, plus it is more expensive. I may not buy because the 3 (or 4) white LED fans may be more than

enough my themselves.

Logisys Digital Fan Controller
Price: $19.99 + S&H
Probably will buy. Monitors case temps as well as controlling fans. I don't have a sensor in my case to measure the case temp, so this would e a nice thing

to have.




Nesscities: About $165 Shipped.
Everything: About $235 Shipped.

I'm not entirely sure about the cost of paint, but it seems to be about $10-$14 a can and I'm thinking at the very least two cans for interior black (which, I'm thinking of doing white and have a white/silver/red case instead of red/black/silver) and at least 3 for the exterior red. Not sure though.

Now you're talkin'....

Cool on the "primer-less and sanding-less" paint.

I look forward to your comments and feedback on that Krylon paint. If it gets your blessing I will go get some for a future project...

I hope it is good as well...it's going to be a PITA if it turns out crap and I gotta sand it all off and redo it with different paint, with primer and sanding. Not to mention the $$...

I also might be able to skip off on the painters tape - the flame and side panel design would require more paint that I don't really have money for ATM...plus I might be able to score some from Collision Tech at school.
