Yea their the only place i could find black rivets at, i also saw that silver ones would like sadly out of place. keep in mind their expensive i paid 16 bucks or so before shipping for the 70 i ordered. I really look forward to finish this this massive painting hassle and get it riveted back together. The rest of the mod after that should be just plain fun.

Alright so i ran into a problem last night, it appears i managed to break my led/power/reset wire. Ill post a picture of it later but for now ill show off my poorly written letter to antec customer service, lets hope for a good response.

I have been doing a antec 900 case modification log on a large and popular computer enthusiast forum(link-http://www.overclock.net/case-mod-work-logs/367036-project-maleficent-emerald-dream-56k-ultra.html). I have spent nearly 600 dollars modifying it and have run into a issue with a damaged wire. I am trying to get my hands on a replacement power/hdd activity led/reset wire. I am not sure if antec helps with these kind of things but i have heard good things about your customer service and was hoping i could pass the word onto the hundreds of people following my case mod online. If you are able to send me this replacement wire than i would be more than happy to pay shipping if neccissary on it. Once again the wire im looking for is a power/led/reset-3 motherboard header wire. I will reflect the service i get strongly on my forums so if you guys do manage to help me then i will make sure other members of my online community know of your qaulity customer service that i have heard so much about in the past from others. Thank you again in advance for your help.

If any of the information entered at the top is incorrect i would be more than happy to send a invoice of my purchase from newegg in.

Anyhow lets hope from a good response from antec.

Tonight ill get up some fresh pics.

Day 7.5-Painting 95% done.

Hello again all, im back after a 2 day break of no picture updates. Sorry for the long spell of boring but i didnt want to just show off my lack of skills at painting things black, would have been far to boring to post. Anyway on to the pictures.

As mentioned earlier this wire has become damaged.


should be able to fix this led


but the plug snapped off the reset i dont forsee myself fixing this(i even painted the end how sad)


I recieved a call from a antec customer service guy today but missed it, ill call him back tomorow and see if i can get a new one. Worst case scenario(no pun intended) ill just cut the cords at the back of the reset, fix the led, and put it in without a working reset button.

Spent like 2 hours cleaning everything up so i can walk around without stepping through a peice of glass(yea that happened, at least i finished lapping the true first)


these wires will all be lengened/sleeved once the case is together.


these two side panels are all thats yet to be painted now


And as of this posting i have finished everything else, it was a long tedius process and i spent over $150 in paint. Oh well at least i had a lot of these to get me through it unscathed.


And now the pic of EVERYTHING painted!!!


and the stuff thats drying from clearcoats today


finaly getting better at putting out a smooth even coat


and the other peice


compared to my first panels these are coming out great, i hope my improvements in skill are reflected in the side panels to come


the backside of the top panel


this has been drying about a hour longer


and finaly the pci plate


this thing gave me lots of issues, had to sand it down and repaint it more than once....


finished front plate


bottom and back


mobo tray


mesh peices and small panels


mesh panels look much much better now


oh and this thing is going to need a few coats over problem spots once the new kits of mirage get here


this area is all messed up, dosnt take to pictures badly though


Alright thats all for tonight, Tomorow i will get this bad boy riveted back together with black steel rivets, paint a crapload of screws, and get some mock up shots of it all put together. Thursday-Tuesday i will be on vacation and when i get back i will finish any extra tasks and all the wiring.

Thanks for watching! ^_^

looks amazing so far. I wish i had taken out the rivets and disassembled my 900 that im painting right now. Things would have been soo much easier.

One thing that does surprise me though is that you didnt disassemble the front piece. The frame on the front breaks down into 4 pieces, the top, the two sides, and the bottom. It made painting a lot easier.
