I am not too impressed with the side panel, It turned out somewhat cloudy for no reason. I guess I will have to live with that :/
I will be puting a window in it as soon as I get the acrylic.
Here are a couple pics of the case after clearcoating:




I have to let the clearcoat sit over night, then do some touch up on it tomorrow after work. Wetsanding will probably take 2 - 3 hours min. so I will update when I am assembeling the case!

SlantS - The top pic, is that a shadow or is it that clouded? (Gee I hope not )

Can't wait to see it together at any rate!

It is not perfect, but from what I have seen so far there is no clouding on the case at all.
The only clouding I got overall was from my lack of paint on the removable side panel, which I plan on cutting out later anyway.

however some of the paint on the motherboard tray peeled due to lack of contact.
It is too cold to go spray any touchup right now, But I will be fixing that and painting the very front with the final silver color later today.
I should have it put together again tonight at about 9:00 pm
Thanks for looking!

Sorry about the serious lack of updates.
I have been VERY busy lately.
These are a couple pics of the case nearly complete. I am not vert happy with the outcome, but I am very glad I decided to work on an old case for my first project. The paint was sprayed on light in a couple spots and I do not have any more to touch it up, so I guess I will just have to live with it.
I will post more pics later on, but there are still a few things that I need to mod before it gets put to use.
Taking out the HD rack and front fan rack will be necessary before it can be watercooled.
I want to put a huge window on the side panel, and cut out a bigger hole to fit a radiator on the front-inside of the case.
And I still have to order a res, waterpump, and radiator that will fit.


I did not wipe it down before the picture :/
the removable side panel is cloudy as you can see. I will be replacing almost the whole side with acrylic.





HD rack is clearly in the way.
