So, after fighting with the front part of the case for the past few days, I got it most of the way done. Just got some touch up work with spackle. Then, for the rest of the case, I have to make stickers, some electrical work and any other little touch up work I have left to do.
I would like to explain how I did everything, but I'm a little tired and there's a lot of little details (and swearing) to go through. I'll give you a rough how-to though.
I cut the mesh and a screen (like from a window) to put together for the mesh part. I took my optical drive and glued on the wood piece on the front. Took my torch and put some burn marks on the ends of the wood pieces. Glued the optical drive and cold cathodes in the case. Glued the screen on, followed by the f**king mesh that wouldn't f**king stay down and glue.
Whew, sorry, very frustrating. Had to use cans of pop to hold the mesh down.
Finally, it stayed down and I glued down the wood pieces. Not shown but I put the sticker on after the picture and sprayed black.
I put a little orange spray on the inside and then took some glamor shots.
After getting this far, I figured I was done enough to finally put all my computer parts in including fans and lights. Heres...
Thought everything came out alright. Just got some sticker work, fixing an electrical circuit for the CCFLs, a tiny bit more mesh work (thank god), and some spackle work for the front. Should I spray the I/O panel black or leave it shiny chrome? Melt thumb screws on?
Thanks for watching!
