what should i do to my case??

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
ok so i'm tired of looking at my stock case. i want to paint it, but don't know if i should just paint it, or put some graphics on the side of it or what. i've never done any kind of case mods before so this will be a first. i'm pretty sure i'm going to go with some kind of blue color and will leave the stock silver front of my case the way it is. any suggestions? i'll be doing this tomorrow and will probably make a build log with pics also.

That's probably as good a place as any to get ideas for that case.

I see a lot of two tone paint mods done to the 690 that come out well. My only suggestion would be to take your time with the mesh section, or leave it black. That doesn't always seem to come out so well when painted.
