Update: I got the power/reset button housings attached to the front panel and ready to get the first coat of paint on it. Also sanded down the buttons so that they fit nicely and will take the green paint nicely. cool.gif

Also thought I'd mention that I plan on outlining the green designs in black using a paint brush....... any suggestions on what kind of paint I can use? confused.gif


Side note: biggrin.gif Fixed a fan controller/temp unit for my rig that's been broke for 3+ years. Finally took it apart and realized some of the soldered connections were broke. Re-soldered the connections and it works like a champ. Yay me!! biggrin.gif

So was setting up the motherboard/PSU/drives in the naked chassis to figure out how I want to run all the cables..... and low and behold I found I was missing a piece. Called the guy I bought it from and he's supposed to search around for it... if not I guess I'll be crafting a piece.

So figured I'd post this picture just to let everyone know the color green that I'm using


The little round things are the nuts for the window... also with the power and reset button.

So it's a little wet outside.... about to sand the first coat of paint. Hopefully the rain stops long enough to spray the panels. I don't really want to have to paint them inside my trailer. =(

Oh by the way I saw someone do a mod with this exact same case, he just did a black spray paint for the innards. I'd like to see what this is about

Good luck mate.

Well that's definitely the plan..... Was thinking green cathodes with pink LED accents. With green and pink sleeving. Unfortunately I'm on a limited budget so those final details might be longer in coming.

Today's the day to start taping out and cutting the stencil for the designs. Will have some pictures when they are all taped out.

i'd be careful your munchkin doesnt lose a finger or two inside that front swirl thing, looks a little jagged and unfinished. What are your plans with this?
