Latest Pictures of the case (remember this is my first case mod so don't be to harsh )









-=-=-===-=-==-FIRST POST==--=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Hey, I am starting my first case worklog, and my first true extreme case mod. I have some big plans for my case. This project was inspired by many cases here on OCN, especially repo_man's [Project] Phoenix and ice_owl's [Project] Liquid Ice. I will take tons of pictures as I go through the process of building the case.I tend to finish stuff quickly so expect constant updates, and just because I finish stuff quickly doesn't mean I am going to do a bad job, I just tend to really get into things I enjoy . I have never used Bondo or shaped foam before so this will definitely be an ongoing learning experience.



Here are the supplies I picked up today:
Two Gallons of Bondo
24 Bricks of Florist Foam
Some Plastic Spreaders
Some Breathing Masks
50 Pack of 60 Gritt Sand Paper
Easter Eggs
And in the Back is the Case being modded, a CM690



I have never used Bondo or Florist Foam before. So first I decided to test to make sure the Bondo didn't melt or damage the Florist Foam.



30 Minutes later I checked out the test piece of foam with the bondo on it, and the Bondo didn't seem to cause any ill effects . Thats good news.



I decided that I am going to put a third 120mm fan on the top of my CM690.




Trusty ol' Dremel



Perfect size, don't worry about how the holes aren't very pretty. They will be covered with Bondo top and bottom.




Thats all I have so far, stay tuned for some updates very soon...

Thanks! hmm I guess my theme would be, Smooth, Sleek, and Clean.. lol 24 bricks of foam, bondo, and a bag of easter eggs.. I never thought I would have heard that combination of words . There could possible be turbines involved... Definitely a lot of sculpting.

Thanks

***UPDATE, I told you they'd be very soon (I am doing my project and posting when I take breaks or get to hot)


Here are where some of the foam bricks are going. (Yes I know they look really stupid rite now)



Bondo action below, I have no Idea if I used to much or to little hardener.. but whatever I did it worked.






I am using the Bondo as glue to stick the foam blocks to the top of the case.



Finished that part... Now I just gotta wait for it to dry...


More very soon...

FWIW, get some scrap cardboard and cut it into 12"x12" squares. You can use those as disposable bondo boards. You'll need a clean surface to mix on all the time.
