Hi aajvs99,

A person after my own heart! During the winter I always get bored and turn to my computer for solice. During the spring, summer and fall I turn to my 1970 Buick GS. But I digress... to your question. Try some of these links,
http://www.xoxide.com/vgacoolers.html
http://www.coolerguys.com/
http://www.caseetc.com/cgi-bin/caseetc
http://www.1coolpc.com/
http://www.pccasegear.com/

I completed business with all of these venders over the years and they have all been good... There is just so much to do and so little time!!! he,he,he

I hope this helped, :-)

Hi aajvs99,

All you have is a hammer or nails, hmmm. That may not be enough. :-)
As for the mods. Most can be completed with a jigsaw and steady hand, a drill motor with with hole saws for fans. Start out easy with maybe some lighted fans or cold cathode lights and switches. The MOST important part - Have a plan! Think about how you want the case to look, then take the steps to mod. Some folks paint their computers as well. I did that for my youngest daughter. She wanted her case to be different but unique to her. I went down to Wal-mart bought the paint colors she wanted, laid out the parts and started. She now has a very unique case that she loves and her friends (6th graders) can't believe.
Just take your time and have a plan!

Take care and best wishes on your modding project, :-)

Hey aajvs99,

One last thing. Another easy way is apliques or case badges designed by you. There are web sites that make vinyl type peel and stick designs. Some are after games, landscape scenes, animals, etc. Try here for ideas:

Here's a link for more ideas: http://www.casearts.com/cases.html

If you look on the left side you'll fins "accessories". Click on that link and you'll get more ideas.
