Hey guys!

A quick update this time.

I decided on my colour scheme which is to be PURPLE and BLACK

So I went off to buy some new spray paint to begin painting some of the components!

Australian Export paint, yummy Have had good experiences with it



As you can see, it's a nice purple colour.
I had quite a struggle fiddling with the camera and editing the images; the purple didn't come out right! It kept turning into a dark blue. Paint.net made a quick fix





So I decided to test the paint outlook on the cross-bar support for the PSU and top part of the case, just to skip the sanding and prep!...



Ready to be painted



The outcome (forgot to mention it's a plum purple)







Contrasted with the grey paint

So that's it for now!

I'll begin painting other components as soon as possible! Have to go to the movies tomorrow so won't have nuff time.

Stay tuned for more!

case looks familiar?

Quite a few people have told me that now...

I really don't know, I only started case-modding late last year and I never really checked out my garage or the stuff in it. It's really old and had a pentium 4 system inside it, I only just discovered it

don't really know the brand either; it's my dad's first PC I think

WOOOT! PUUUUUUURRRRPALLLLLLLLLLLLLL (= (=

Black+Purple is going to look pretty sexy!
Btw there should be some camera settings which you can tweak to get your colours right.

Looking forward to the rest!

Hey guys!

Did quite a crap-load of stuff last night and for today, though it seems little it really is quite a lot for the little likes of me

So I'll begin the 2 updates with a little planning.

So I'm introducing the motherboard tray of the case:



The trouble with this motherboard is that there aren't any holes to screw in motherboard stand-offs into, instead there are some sort of squares which accomodate plastic clip-on square stand-offs... which i lost quite some time ago.

So my plan is to use another motherboard tray from another old case, but I'll integrate it into the old one, I'll explain l8er, for now PICS

Other tray left, current right





So my plan is to make a screw/nut connection, screwing the other motherboard tray to the back of the motherboard tray I'm using, so there are existing stand-off holes.

Confusing? You'll understand soon enuff

So I have to remove any obtrusions or things sticking out to prevent the motherboard trays from being flat-out screwed together.

Permanent markers are lovely.





And the edges/borders of the other motherboard tray are also in the way, it's also bigger than the current so I have to make it smaller; let's trim!

Here is the stuff:



Objective:



Tomorrow it's cutting time! Looks like a Dremel or what?



Well anyways that's it for now!

Posting up some REAL work in the next update
Stay tuned for more!

Hey Guys!

IT'S ROTARY TOOL'in TIME!

I haven't touched this for a heck load of time; it feels so nostalgic sniff sniff



Let the pics do the talking aye?




Next...



A little rough edging but nvm, sand paper can do the rest.





Straight though




Aftermath:



Wow seriously, I took out 3 dremel discs and 2 cheap generic ones in 1 job, that's a record breaker for me
The dremel discs are good though, the generic ones came with the rotary tool itself The generic ones crack so easily.



So the finished result!



Now the stand-off holes stay centre of the clip-on squares





Finished result:



Center of the squares, perfect!



Screwed on with these screws/nuts (btw this is just a prop make-up, the real screws will be MUCH MUCH shorter).






FINAL PIC:



I'm happy with the end result! Though it isn't the end, plenty of sanding to do

Well that's it for now, quite a bit more to come!

Stay tuned for more
