Hi everyone, I have been reading this thread since its birth and have been waiting a long time to post some pictures and try to contribute to this great club. I have watched several of your cases from their beginnings to what they have become and I have been very impressed. I have built computers from the ground up before but it wasn't until I was searching for reviews online for the Storm Scout when I came across this thread and I was amazed with what so many of you turned the scout into, and that's when I decided that I wanted to try and "mod" a case to make it stand out more. So these are a few of the things I did to my case, which I mostly picked up from you guys.
I started by taking out the stock grill on the front of the case, I didn't find it very attractive so I figured I would just cut it out, and a few weeks later I saw kev_b did the same thing. Then I took kev_b's instructions from a while back when I made my first post asking him what to do about the perforated front grill and cut it out. Then I took two targeted fan grills and drilled holes into the removable front panel and attached fans to the other sides. I also added four bullet thumb screws to the back to go with my theme, but I wouldn't call that a mod.
Right now I'm a broke high school student so the money isn't exactly flowing in, so the hardware is going to remain adequate at best for now, but the next project is definitely going to be replacing the side window which I will keep you guys posted on. I love this thread and I really respect your guys opinions and I am trying to learn so let me know what you think. Thanks

@K10 Try your luck against Random.org I say!

@ RockChalk22 - Looks pretty clean, I like the target fan grills!

Thanks for the compliments guys! About the cover, I was going to throw away a broken VHS player and i thought of using the aluminum case of the unit. So I took out my snips and I thought it looked great on the scout!!

indeed it does, great idea! I was just thinking today that I wanted to do something with the open HDD area, might see if I can come up with something similar

Baldo 1013... That cover looks like it came with the Box Man.. That is so Sweet.
