Wow all I could get done today was a quick touch up coat, then after realizing I needed to start over on the bottom of the shroud was 3 hours of sanding.





I started on the backplate as well. The stickers that were previously there made little square indentions, so I had to sand them away as well. Still working on this part.

^ Wow Troy. I think the next best thing to do would be to smear her with dry-wall mud, sand her down, and paint her.

DRY-WALL MUD FTW!

with all due respect it kills me you are experiencing painting sanding and modding on a 5870, man get some experience so you dont do anything too stupid (not that you are doing or anything)

do like i did: find little toy cars- custom paint them, skateboards - custom paint them, old pc cases - custom paint them, walls behind supermarket - custom paint them and got arrested (b smart, dont write stupid stuff, dont get caught)...

then you move into this stuff, not that u r doing stuff wrong (its good you are open to tips&tricks)

btw dry wall mud (compound as i call it) works good, but cracks if you dont put good enough coat of paint on top, i did that on custom xbox360 case cracked lots and lots then i applied many coats of paint works like a beauty.

Live and learn I guess. Might as well start big so that learning from mistakes becomes easier.

Interesting endeavor. I personally would have left it Black and painted the red parts white... But that's just me.

Well I am almost done with this. All I have left to do is all the touch up stuff.
Tomorrow I will bring out the ole modeling kit and get the paint color I need, paint the pin stripe, paint the batmobile holes at the front, and make sure that all the white areas are good as well.
Here are a lot of pics. Enjoy.





































I just realized that I forgot to plug the GPU fan into the PCB header
Gotta take it apart again.
