Thanks Bruce. From you that's quite a complement!
I've got four things pending as next steps.
1) Mask and paint accents on the interior. This will involve disassembling again. After that dries, I clearcoat it and assemble it for the final time.
2) Planning the front side panel window. I'll be posting some ideas about that shortly. Still trying to figure out exactly where I'm going with that. Too many options and I have to plan around the existing 80mm fan hole.
3) Planning the back side panel bumpout for wire management. Still working on sizes for that. Going to use a cake pan for that based on inspiration from Matt AKA waffles3680 top panel mod:
Matt, if you see this, you are awesome.
4) Front bay control panel. I need to decide where I'm putting that. Had intended lower bay. But may move it to the upper bay instead. I've got the power and reset buttons ordered from Performance-PCs.
After I get the side panels modded, then comes the exterior paint job. I may have to rethink the color scheme used, based on how elaborate the side panel is, to avoid making the case "too busy".
