9th Birthday Build Log (I am no CD or Goby) 56K no no - Page 3

post #21 of 39
Hi hoochi3,

Great project! Are you going to have him help you with the build?? He could easily put in the power supply, fans and place the video card in and fasten it down.

EDIT: My bad - I see it's a "birthday" present so he won't really get to see it until its done. Perhaps after you give it to him, some simple upgrade would be in order, like maybe some cathode lights.

Nothing like father/son or father/daughter projects to bond, communicate and have memories!

Take care and Best wishes to you and your son, :-)

Thanks guys, I am just hoping it is not sticky by the time his birthday comes up!

O.k. after reading a few other posts, I decided to sand the top and side panels back down, and start reapplying the primer coats. I am going to go 4 coats of primer and then fine sand that so that they have a nice glossy finish. I will post pics later of the front panel.

That's super cool. Hope it all goes well for his birthday!

My wife complains I spend to long on the PC, I reckon giving my daughter a computer would be a great way to piss off my wife.

That is one cool dad there

On the paint application, lite coats and allow dry time between... overall it will dry faster.
