HAF 922 White - Page 2

Update:

Painted one of the side panels and installed it.

Sanded side panel.


Painted.


Installed



Also while I was at it, I touched up my custom Mouse Pad too.

I painted a sheet of glass with Chalkboard Paint. Paint dries to a hard finish and works great as a mouse pad for Laser Mice.



I took a router to my desk and made it so the glass sits level in the desk and doesn't move around. Then to top it off, found some rubberized paint and painted the desk edges where the glass sits to be a tad softer. I'll upload a pic of it when I get a chance.

Edit: added pic..

Send it away. Next case I paint, I am using the Air Brush or an actual paint gun. My finger hurts!!! LOL, from using a paint can. I was too cheap to buy one of those plastic handles that clip onto the pain can.

Any tips on touching up paint? I might just use the air brush to tackle the touch up, but it you guys have any suggestions fire them off.

If it is a small nick, I would say use a fine tip paint brush.

By the way, amazing paint job. I would love to get my ATCS 840 painted just like that.

I was thinking a paint brush as well, but the paint is from a Spray Paint can and with my luck I would buy a little pint can and the color won't match.

can you airbrush a moon behind a castle on a hill with a wizard casting a spell and a wolf perched on a rock howling on the one side of the case, and "100% latino" on the other side?

I can't, but my brother could. Anything you can imagine, he can draw, etch, airbrush onto your case. As for letters, he always says people can buy stickers for that. lol.

I had him etch a dragon into the rear windows of one of my trucks, and a Unicore and Pegasus into the rear window of my wifes car. I don't have the truck anymore, but I have the car still. I can throw up a Pic if anyone wants to see what glass etching looks like on a car.

Anyway here it is.


I had more pictures, but they didn't come out. I used my phone for the pictures so the quality isn't the best, well neither is the paint job. But not too shabby for a first.
Dude, that looks soooo awesome!! I am going to copy you lol.

Go for it, thats what these forums are all about. Watch and learn, then do it and have fun doing it.



I finally got the aircompressor and airbrush from my brother, once he finds the bottles for the paint I can start the touch up process. I was thinking about airbrushing some kind of art on the case or in the case, nothing fancy just something to catch the eye. hmmm maybe a OCN logo in the bottom or on the drive cages. Any ideas? Don't go too extreme, keep it simple.
