Project: Vizard Maki

Materials:
1x NZXT Apollo Black SECC Case
2x Sand Paper
1x Sand Sponge
1x Box of Tools(Wrench, Screwdrivers, Philips, Screws, and etcetera...)
3x Red LED Case Fans
1x Drill
1x 1/8 Drill Bit/or Smaller
2x Paint Thinner/Stripper
3x White Spray Paint
3x Black Spray Paint
3x Clear Spray Paint
1x Spray Paint Gun
1x Roll of Masking Tape


Opening:
This is my first Case Mod Work Log, so basically I will basically explain why and how I got the idea of modding this case. This case is the NZXT Apollo Black SECC. This case was somewhat faulty, so I stripped everything and gave it to another case, such as the fans. Therefore, I did not want to waste this case, so I wanted to try recreating it, so it looks much better. I took everything apart and that is when I got the idea of making it into a Vizard. If anyone watches Bleach, though I am not a Bleach fan, but the case itself has the potential of having a Vizard mask, so that was my topic for this case. I am also an anime fanatic, that is why I would relate it to anime. This case was originally my father's other computer, but then since it was faulty, I got another and so on. This is why I am keeping the name Maki for this. I hope I do a good job for it. It might take weeks, but I will try to update. I will use photobucket in order to show the pictures, since this is my first time, and I do not know how to take the pictures to show, so I took a bunch of pictures. I hope you guys like it.

Episode One
Now here is the original view, though I did not take pictures of it, since by the time I finished taking apart, I noticed I had no original pictures. So I got these pictures off newegg.com.

Now here the view after it has been stripped of it's fans and when I took parts of it apart. Though, I did not take the top part yet, but I will after I get my drill.

That is it for now, since I have to sand it and get the other materials. It might take longer than expected, but I will do my best to finish it quick. Stay tune for the next episode, I will post up images with all the sanded parts, though you might see the difference since I am using my phone camera, but there is. In the next episode, it will also include cleaned part and the first coat paint. I will also put a sketch of how it would look in a while after I finish my lunch. The material list is very general, I am only going to get that much paint for in case if it is not enough, if it is not enough, I will get more. This is my anticipation, since this is my first time. So please bear with me!



Okay now I have made a quick look of it, the red designs might change, but this is how it will look.

The yellow will be led, and since that part of the case is see through but dark, so I will try to make the LED work out. The teeth will be some kind of mold that I will need to find. The sprayed area of red will have red led coming out from there. I might use the one below instead. All depends on themolding.

coo, post layout, but instead of linking to the albums you should use the [*IMG] tags (without the *) and put the pictures IN the thread for all the lazy people out there
