awesome job man. looks really nice. only thing I can recommend would be to add some "flair" to the front of the case as it looks a little bland.

this is what I am talking about

I actually didn't think about it until I started pulling off the stencil. I noticed I cut too deep into the paint and it started chipping. No worries though. I sprayed a little bit of the spray paint into a cup and touched up the little bits.

Looks great! maybe give me some inspiration. Nice exacto work. I do the same type of stenciling, only on watermelons and Ice sculptures.
Thanks! Watermelons are delicious

wayy nicer than the bit of modding i did on my old pavilion case (same case)
i painted most of the metal and stuff a golden textured color (paint made for patio furniture)
loved how durable the paint was
i painted the dark blue plastics green
and i forget if i painted the silver part anything or not
i also cut a clover shaped hole in the side that was intended for a dark tinted window (green lights in the case that i never got)

was gonna be a green clover sort of theme, for no specific reason, i just wanted a green theme and we didn't have a big enough holesaw for a 120mm fan, so i cut four smaller holes in the clover pattern then decided it'd be better for a window lol
Ooo, the only other gold case I saw was a special edition lian li. Got any pics? Sounds interesting.

Oh wow, did not even think about that. Looks great with the little accents. I have one more old case I may work on for fun. I will most definitely be adding that! Thanks.
