alrighty. so i basically had to re-sand and paint the door againt

it was very frustrating but well worth it. i also made it so that the black comes down onto the lower part of the panel. it looks awkward though. im thinking about taking the masking tape to it and making a red pinstripe where the black and white meet.

after the door is finished im gonna work on the rest of the front panel. i already have some ideas for the bottom half, but i want to get some mesh from somewhere.. hmm.

im open to suggestions if anyone would like to throw some ideas at me

here are the pics for what im doing with the lower half of the case.
my case:

if you look at the lower half there is a chrome Z stuck in the middle of it. i wanted it gone it turned out that it just snaps into place, so i pulled it out and got out the bondo!!!!

here it is with one layer of bondo. the bondo seeped into the z hole so i guess thats why i did it in layers:



then i decided to throw on that next layer


it looks kind of junky, but i guess thats what i needed. a little bit of sandpaper and a lot of discipline goes a long way. i painted a thin layer just to see what it would look like then sanding it down a little bit more, this is what it looks like


with a little more sanding at higher grits, i finally painted a few layers on it. the fins for the LEDs need work, but the center is pretty much done. then a few coats of clear and im home free with this little piece

thanks for the support :-\\ i almost felt like giving up. this thing has screwed up so many times and ive had to fix it

after resanding and painting, this is what i came up with.



looks good right? well not for long. when i put the door on, there was a huge gap between it and the little plate i took the Z out of. it looked terrible, so i had to design something to fill the gap. what i ended up doing was taking a piece of the silver panel i took off of the door and sawed off a little piece that would fit on the bottom of the door.

this is what i came up with.


it looks a bit beat up right now because i realized that the bondo i bought was fiberglass T_T it turns out i have to make another trip to an auto body store to get some regular filler that will form the way i want it to. the fiberglass leaves rough spherical grains behind and it gets really annoying when sanding and trying to fill up gaps. this is when i felt like giving up and just buying a new case, but thats the losers way out. i'm determined to push forward in this mod.

here are some other angles



i have since added more bondo in the corners to make it a litte more form fitting. its extremely difficult to round out and then sand out cuz there is always something wrong with the bondo. i hate this fiberglass $hit. time to go get some regular stuff.

well, it looks like i've fixed the problem

after a little bit of bondo repair and some sanding, i got the form i wanted. i forgot to take pics of it, sorry guys but nonetheless, it is still much better looking. i painted a white prime coat and its currently fully painted in the middle crevace, still primer on the outside edges.





looks much better, in my opinion, i'm gonna let it sit and dry for the next day or two. as for right now, i really dont know what to do about the front panel. i covered up the slot where the usb and front audio were, but i never use those anymore, i'm sure i'll find a different place to put it.


right now it looks pretty good. i took out the 3.5" bay covers and i want to do something there, but i dont know. i believe i'm gonna take out the current power and reset button, sand them down, cover them up and get them outta there. i think i'm gonna get a fighter pilot toggle switch from mnpctech.com and put it in the center of the top 3.5" bay and then on the bottom 3.5" bay put a 3-fan speed controller, one for the HS, one for the rear fan, one for the front fan which is currently non-existant.

i may also get the carbon fiber or brushed chrome film from mnpctech.com as well. tell me what you think, any ideas?
