Well after finding the camera,lol, I took some pictures. From your update it looks like your work is coming along well, it looks awesome.
I hate to spam your thread with my build but since you asked..
I will just link a album of the pics so I don't fill up 2 posts.
I bought the Xion II case and didn't like it in its stock look, so I "dealt" with it.
First thing I decided to do on the case was buy some new fans because I was planning to overclock the CPU some and the included fans were, meh. So I looked around and bought some cheaper Rosewill fans. I was going to get green colored fans to match the glow of the Xion on the top, but the avg price for a green fan was ridiculous, And on top of that the green fans did not perform well so I bought 4 120MM white glow fans. I was planning to jeri-rig two in the front and two in the back but looking over the case I saw that there was alot of room open for fans, So I measured around and finally chose a place to cut out basically centered in the entire side. I don't think I included a picture, my better camera is not home today, but the way I installed the fans was I put a bolt through the fan screw hole then used a nut to elevate the fan above the bottom or top of the case to ensure I didn't burn my fan out. Then I but another bolt on the other side of the metal side to make the fan tight. I then bought fan grilles to cover them and used plastic trim left over from my vehicle around the edges so they were smooth.
After that I painted the interior Flat Black. A much better looking color than stock gray IMO.
Then (as you can see in the pictures) I took the front door and cut out the plastic behind the X so the lights of the fans would make an X glow on the front, sadly the LED lights on the fans just aren't powerful enough to complete the job, and my camera butchered the rest of the light coming through. In real life the front door X is much better.
And finally after that 5 mins read, here are the pictures:
I know the work is a bit rough, but I didn't want to take the time to sand and repaint in differing areas.
Note: the computer I painted white inside is no longer mine and I am unable to take pics of it :'( But If you look at an Antec 300 Illusion and imagine the inside painted white. You have the product.
2nd note: I do apologize if I used to much space..
Edited the post with a new picture link, added another photo.
