If someone can find a picture of the scout 2 side on from either side Ill do some chopping and show how it SHOULD look, all of the pics I can find are at an angle, a very slight angle I could work with.

Looking really good to me. Still not sure about the 'honey comb' look on top, but I love that they went to a bigger hex mesh all around. You should be able to get ton of air flowing thru this baby thumb.gif

I'm thinking white will be the other color....camo would be cool, tho probably expensive special edition.

I wonder what will happen to the original Scout? Be a shame to discontinue it. An update would be nice. It deserves it.

On that note, if you are wanting to keep the Scout around for a long time, you might want to look at getting spare parts before they quit making it.

Sounds like a modding plan yes?

I suppose the mod could be built with a wire frame (structure) and bondo-hair (to much build up for just bondo) then sanded/filed down and re painted.

Honestly it would be a serious PITA to do the mod like I have it in my head, I can change the lines in MS paint in a few minutes.

I like to do this with a lot of things so I know that I am going to like the end result before I start cutting filling grinding and welding. Having a picture is a great guide it also serves as great motivation to finish.

Problem is I need a near perfect side view to make it work.

Hi, think this is my first post on the forum's... so hello to all ;-). The old scout is a great case and mine has been through rough and tumble quite literally after survivng a girlfriend freak out in which everything was ripped out the case and then the whole rig thrown around the room and survivng with very minor scratches!! Anyway... i dedided to try something a little odd so i had a friend i know gold plate the side window only ... it's copper and gold and then its coated to protect it... it's REAL gold and has put some life back into the once scratched and damaged side panel.







I think the chocolate bar really sets off the rest of the case biggrin.gif ...so it will never be perfect as the case is old(like it's owner!) but it certainly has cleaned up the window a little.

By 'updating', I mean something as simple as a new tinted window with noise free fan grills. Or maybe a mesh side like the Sniper? Add removable HDD bays and WHAMMO! Scout Deluxe!
