================================================== =====
Welcome to the first McNaryxc Mini Mystery Mod!

Since I'm caught up with school work and will have some free time for the next couple weeks, I thought I'd at least do a quick cheap case mod. The deadline is to be done by the end of winter term so then I have a week off for spring break before diving into the ASEC Turret mod. This shouldn't be a problem for what I want to accomplish....which will be a mystery to you all.

See, I'd love to show you pictures, but I'd rather have you guys think about what I'm trying to do. So, instead, I'll show you some other pictures. Some are clues, and some are ones that I have looked at to give me inspiration. Some pictures are very obvious what I'll be trying to do, while others might not. Please don't despair. I will show you pictures of my mod at the end...and perhaps during the build (and you might not even know it )

The only real hint I can give towards the case is that it will be custom, as in, I won't be taking a pre-made case and modding it. Here are the first 5 pictures (as more will come soon):











Have fun figuring it out!

I like that acrylic rack you got there...and there are some good pics as well.

I'm surprised you are old enough to remember you can't do that on television. That is old school.
I will have to come check out what you got going on after you get it going! I can't get much off of your hints...and even if I did I would not say it so soon after you posted...that would be lame. Im subbed!

Good. I was afraid of maybe the pictures explaining too much.

Ya, scratch build. Thought I might as well do a small scratch build to prepare for the large one coming up later in the year.
