Update from today, ive been working on the case all day and made some good progress, i think? When modding a case everytthing takes 10x what you thimnk it will take, if you want a nice finish :wink: NEways heres a few pics, enjoy

After first coat of primer, showed up some imperfections, so after alot of sanding and a little more body filler...
[/url]

After a few coats of primer, needs to dry, then sand again then ready to paint!

Back of the front panel looks realy untidy, you wont be able to see to when its on the case, not much anyway, im going to paint it black to match the frame
[/url]

[/url]

Test fit, using uchannel around the hole to make it look a little neater, again this wont be visible with the panel on, but its the little touches that make a nice case :roll:
[/url]

Test fit, front view

[/url]

Done some more sanding on side panel, looking realy nice, i think thats done now
[/url]

Tomorrows plan is to cut some holes in the mb tray for cable managment and exxtra cooling! Pics tomoz

i love the work youre doing, especially the blow hole body-filler/sanding/priming -- very clean, very clean! I cant wait to try that technique out on my next project.

cheers! +rep

Ive done alot since the last update, but have no progress pics, forgot/being lazy! Ive finished the case frame, sprayed black and cleared, and installed all my hardware and wc loop. d-tek fusion, ek 8800ultra, 12V Laing DDC-1T Plus Ultra w/Alphacool Top, 120.3, clear single bay res. Still needs lots of cable managment once the panels go on. I'll explain stuff above the pics enjoy;

I made a trim from ally to cover the rad fans, and for green lighting, i think it looks pretty sweet
[/url]

120.3, sprayed black with green metallic candy stripes, kustom!
[/url]

Fan filters to stop dust coming through the bottom, the 120mm fan at the front is being changed
[/url]

Tubing holes
[/url]

Res, with x2 5mm uv leds
[/url]

New n/b, s/b and memory cooling

Next update i will be airbrushing the panels, green/black/alien theme coming soon!
