yeah, but i only have 3 wires that go to my motherboard so honestly it would not be worth the hassle of it. however i can make a small u-channel out of plex or lexan and put the wires in it to keep them hidden from the front. so far i am really happy with how this things in coming out. i have about 7 to 8 hours into it so far. mostly because i take my time and make sure it is done right. if things didn't have to be so precise it would be a lot faster. i think my next project i will use our CNC router to make everything, using my own designs.

Wow. Very nice case from scratch. I like it a lot, so long as you live in a dust free house. -Laughs.- Might want to think about some filter of some kind. It's gonna need constant upkeep otherwise.... Just my thoughts.

Well i have good news.. it has been painted ... i did two coats of light red to even out the color, then i mixed my clear coat. i did 300grams of clear and 20 grams of the house of kolor red additive.

i sprayed 2 medium coats of it. now i have to wait atleast a week for it to dry enough to wet sand with 2k grit to clean it up, then i am going to put several coats of clear with very little red additive.

i was thinking about adding a touch of red pearl but i think that will be overkill. i will try to post some pics tonight or tomorrow. i did not realize my battery's are dead in the camera.

yaaa finally some pics...

hear is a side view with the cover off. it is a little dusty from sitting in the shop for the past day drying. i didnt get to clean it out yet, but will before sanding.


one of the back side.


this is one of the back I/O plate area. notice how the color fades from one side to the other? it is because of how the paint reacts to the light, gives it a nice little effect.


i have a few more to upload but my net is slow tonight so i will add more tomorrow after work. hope you like it so far. i wish the camera would get better pics, it really don't show how glossy or the color change that well. in daylight it is a huge difference.
