There's a lot more I could say, mostly positive, but I will just sum it up by saying I'm stoked on the Scout, and that it ended up being my favorite piece of equipment that went into my build.

Just a quick update on the Carbon White Wrap.

Here are some photos for how it stands now. I have just received the new perspex to cut out a plain window without the fan grills. This will be done this weekend.

I decided to use the Carbon Wrap sparingly and am pleased with the results. It adds a nice 2 tone colour scheme, to keep the black in also. I have also just put in a set of White braided cables for all the major cabling inside.

Sorry about all the photos!

















Thanks! Taken alot of inspiration from this site, as to how modable this case really is!

Those are all too rough. Just sand down the whole thing with 220 and then with 400 between coats. 600 as a final sand before clear or final coat.

There is just something missing from it and I can't put my finger on it. Please no offence. please. I love the case and it is the first time I have seen White Di Noc Used. But there is design element that is missing.. It does look great though. Truely I say. I just see it and wonder what it is that it is .. another color or a texture of maybe a striping on the front. I don't know.. I love the case.. Don't get me wrong.. I just think that it could be better but I be darned if I can put my finger on what it is..

Thanks! Appreciated!

No, its this vinyl wrap from eBay.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1207593743...ht_7575wt_1163

I found it to be great. Its great when heated to mould to awkward shapes, and is hard wearing for when transporting computer around, and for the size of the sheet, a very good price.
