Coolermaster 340 Mod - Page 4

post #31 of 42
Thread Starter 
Not alot to update atm as i've yet to take some pictures, But anyhow i've recently finished the colour and clear coats ont eh outter case looks nice and wait till you see it...and how i achieved it!

But i've a problem been spraying with cans for years but never have i had this problem, basically i have lots of little tiny hairs that are on the clear coat! i really dont fancy having to sand it all back and risk ruining my perfect colour coats...any suggestions on how to correct this? or will it buff out when it comes to me buffing them???

So as no one came up with an idea, i went ahead and sanded then buffed.....

smile.gif looks like i took the right choice! i've yet to take some decent pictures using my camera, but atm the phone pictures will have to do XD i can see my face in that side panel! very impressed and only took.....1 hour to buff....yes one damn hour my arm was killing afterwards! Either way im very impressed with it, its shiney not to reflective but enough to have a decent finish!

I've also ordered the new trim and new "smoked" side panel, etching is something im thinking about doing but for now im not going to do it....not untill i think of a design first! thanks for looking smile.gif

Finally time for a decent update. case is slowly coming along nicely smile.gif to start with i need to get the mesh sorted out and loose ends tied up. so to start with, it was the back panel...

IMG_20110912_094334.jpg

Need to fill that little hole right there...with mesh! ac-ryan mesh in fact smile.gif this stuff is THE TITS when it comes to mesh, i'd recommend it to anyone any day! so onto the cutting and mesuring up...

IMG_20110912_094328.jpg

i know it looks rough and odd right? there is a reason, when i pulled the ruler out i came across a problem i didnt think about, the rivets and panels...

IMG_20110912_095933.jpg

But that is ok smile.gif i sorted it! bit of fileing and problemo solved wink.gif

IMG_20110912_095927.jpg

Next issue was the side panel,

IMG_20110912_094836.jpg

So i marked it and got the dremel out, few minutes later....

IMG_20110912_100913.jpg

IMG_20110912_104842.jpg

Anouther problem solved smile.gif and if i do say so myself it looks rather hot!

Next up is the other side panel taking a mesh panel...

IMG_20110912_083640.jpg

Marked and preped,

IMG_20110912_085109.jpg

cut and now to finish the final cuts..

IMG_20110912_085737.jpg

Sorted smile.gif i will get back to that as i will be using the decent camera to take som of the panel shots smile.gif

One other thing...i needed to sort out the case feet! lucky for me my good mate techytom had an old case he was breaking....so sorted me out the feet!

However the bolts i had were too long so i had tto break out the dremel again!

IMG_20110911_202651.jpg

So now we have some better sized bolts!

IMG_20110911_202735.jpg

With my assortment of bits and bobs, i layed them out and poof! feet are on and i will be posting some pictures of them soon smile.gif thanks for looking.
