White is the New Black - A HAFX Build **UPDATES!** - Page 2

About time for a little update I think wink.gif

The sun may go down, but with one of these little beauty's there will always be enough light to go on.

Got the case all dismantled - only took about 20 minutes to get all the rivets out and that was with the annoying task of getting the rivet heads off of the drill bit tongue.gif

Dismantled Case:

Motherboard tray given a light sand to give the prime something to stick to. I could have taken all the paint off, but I would have been there for weeks.

And given a coat of prime, the flash does make the coat look more uneven than it actually is so I'm not worried. I'll definitely be taking more time with the actual painting coats, but for prime I think it's even enough.

Yeah, they're nice cases if you like the 'space age' look they employ.

Been 11 hours since the last update, but a mans gotta sleep. Here's a little pic to keep things ticking over.

Unfortuanetly the sun is sitting right behind the tray in the pic so it doesn't look as good as it should, still a couple of light coats off being finished I think, but it's coming up fairly even which is nice.

Nice bike in your second post, yours by any chance? I like the colour of the paint too, looks very cool and I think it'll turn out exactly how you want it

brb, off to order the rest of the sleeving, a waterblock and get some good double sided tape so I can finish my mod.

Nah mate, not my bike. It's my step brother's bike which is kept here despite him no longer living here. He's supposedly sold it to a friend who doesn't wan to pick it up

Oh nice, that's what I still need to order - sleeving. Not going to be cheap or alot of fun, but totally worth it.

Always seemed to find white as really ugly for cases, however I think if executed well I think it could be beautifull. It think my problem is all the white platic cases I saw as a kid.
