It will be easier to connect & will look a lot better.

thanks, the wiring was as everything else was much harder and more time consuming to do than i originaly anticipated.

the way i did it is working fine honestly, i would look into it more but i really am time strapped at this point and i dont think i will be able to spare time for it.


Sorry for no update last night i barely got anything done, preped and primered green side of panels and did a little wiring but nothing worth posting, ill have something worth looking at up tonight. ^_^

Day 9-And the work continues.

Sorry for no update last night as i said earlier i didnt do much. Heres a collective of last night and tonights work.

i had to paint right through bad rain due to time constraints, i hope it still comes out well


i tryed putting a coat over this but i think the rain dosnt get along with the green paint, since this peice just needs color coat and its done im gona wait a day or two and come back to it


started taping this up


i didnt coat the sides evenly so i may go over it again if i have time


im going to see how much paint is left after the side panels and come back to this


going to paint these toggle switch thingies


and all the external screw heads


stuck in nice and snug


primered


black on


here they are after clearcoat, i hope they come out fine. im not looking for incredible results but i didnt sand or anything im just looking for a reasonable black finish that dosnt peel off.


and these got up to clearcoat alongside the screws


reset switch take 2, got up to base coat today


prepared side window


sanded off black and preped side panel


primer on


and other panel


tryed painting when the rain was REALLY BAD and it resulted in weird crap forming on paint


best shot i can get, later on i sanded these down and it looked fine


much better


ill sand these down more before color coat


waited till after rain to base coat this panel


nice and smooth


and got up to color coat tonight


closeup


this panel looks INCREDIBLE i havnt seen the paint on such a large peice until now i cant wait to see it in daylight.


closeup


a little soldering with the rest of my wire


this is what i mean by soldering directly into the female end, sorry i couldnt get a good picture


a few quick solders


sleeved the rest of my psu


im not even gona use these wires but they looked off not being sleeved


shoulda gotten some black sleeving just for these oh well


remaining plans for wiring, once again excuse my ridiculous hand writing. if your intrested i still need to attack and sleeve second toggle switch, wire dvd drive and 2 pin header to momentary and sleeve them, and lengthen/sleeve power/reset/led wires EDIT: no address for you guys!


Well thats all for now folks, tomorow i will get clearcoat on top panel, side panels, and if my package from performance-pcs gets here get some wiring done. Things should wrap up pretty soon here.

Remember the case mod contest is going on make sure to vote.

Thanks for watching! ^_^

Nicely done. That side panel shows off that color very well. All the sparkles remind me of my paint job, except it's not as nice as yours.
I had one question for you though. Will you be either painting or changing out the white power connectors or will you leave them white?
Might I add that soldering all connections is always the best thing to do to ensure a strong connection. I never connect anything together using quick connects or butt connectors. Then again, if you plan on changing out something, say a relay for example, then it's okay.

thanks, i was very happy the paint came out good on the side panel im so excited to get up tomorow and see it in the light ^_^

im going to leave the white connectors alone, they will be behind the mobo tray so its not worth dealing with them.

glad to hear soldering is the best route to take since im soldering everything.

Doing some good work Wildfire!

Yea, high humidity is a general no-no for painting, but yours came out well. Just be sure in the humidity you give the paint more time to dry.

1 question: when you painted the nuts/bolts, did you scuff them or sand them to make the primer stick?
