P160 with digital camo front mod...

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Been a while since I have been in these forums. I am getting ready to finally upgrade my innards and decided to do a trial paint job on the front of my case. So, here it is. I still have the card reader to finish but you get the picture. I also fit Aerocool 140mm fans in the front, back, and top of the case. It's a little cooler now.

I think it came out ok. PITA to do though.

Great job! Can I ask why you didn't paint the card reader though? It stands out like a sore thumb.

Wow! What do you guys do, stalk this forum for new posts?!?! LOL

Thanks for the props! The card reader didn't get done yet because i have been trying to get the front cover off without pulling it out, as I am at a lazy point right now. When I get more motivated I'll just unscrew it and pop the front off to finish it up. But you are right it does stick out like a sore thumb.

Considering the amount of time it took to hand cut all the stencils I doubt I'll do the rest in a digital camo. Just for the front alone it took about an hour or so to cut the stencils for the first color and another hour or so for the second. I couldn't face a third. And if you look close enough you can see they are not perfect. A bit of a let down, IMO.

I am debating on getting a new case for the major upgrade I have planned but for know I am content with the one I have now. Keep the comments commin!!!

Surely there's an easy way?

What about getting a cardboard stencil for each colour which could then be used over and over again and could then be used all over the case?

I tried using cardboard at first but you get a lot of bleeding and it looked like crap. Even more so than it does now. I was looking for crisp lines and cardboard really didn't get it done right. I also wanted small patterns and it was very hard to get them small and perfect with CB. I ended up using some sort of sticky paper and cutting it with an x-acto knife. If you look at real US issued digital camo you can see what I really wanted.



I think it would be impossible to get this by hand though.

You can find stencils for about $20 to $30 on the internet but spending the extra time and money, when I did this, was not an option. To get color ideas I used this site: http://tacticalcamo.com/MARPAT/digi.php

I think what I might try is buying digital camo material and using 3m adhesive to apply it to a case. Would give it a cool texture, IMO. Hmmmm...I think I'll have to experiment with this idea.
