That thing's a monster! Gonna have some fun with it!

As far as paint job goes, one thing I'll suggest is not stripping all the old paint off (which I did) if the current paint is in good shape. The baked on finish already there is as good as any etching primer you could put on there, and with a bit of roughing up will make an excellent primer coat.

Definitely consider cutting a window in the front panel and modding your own front out of it. I used the 5.25" bay covers to make my control panel. You can see my before and after

Carlos, I used to have a big ol' case pretty similar to that! I never finished the mod, and that's always bothered me. Maybe I should revisit a mod like that some time soon. smile.gif

So got some airplane stripper to strip the paint and i also ordered some steel patinas

Japan Brown -




Black -




And Green -




I plan to start stripping tomorrow
i will have to test a few different combos to see what works best
but i think it should work quite nicely.

im thinking i may have a local steel shop fab the front panel for me
im really starting to think if the patinas look as good as i think they will i may not cut a window
i think i can create enough ventilation between the front and the back.
im still kicking around some ideas
any imput would be invaluble
thanks

It's been a bit since I've been here but, man there are some neat projects going on. I just thought I'd stop by and say hi.

This thread is awesome!

Just out of curiosity... to what extent can you use a beige box (or several) as part of a project and still have have it qualify for the beige modder's club smile.gif ?

If you tear a case apart completely and build something new using the plastic/metal materials will that still be an acceptable beige mod or is that more a scratch built entry?

I really like the green copper plate look. Personaly I think the weathered green has alot of variety in its pattern.

Nice work Carlos Danger.

Sorry for the late response. I think that would totally qualify!

Hi guys, I will be joining the club soon! I've got a bit of an ambitious project coming up over the next couple of months, I will be fitting an ATX board (specifically the Z97X SOC Force) into an mATX case (I've chucked a 7950 in the photo below for scale)



Some more photos of the case



My grandmother gave it to me as she had recently upgraded to a newer computer, it used to run a core 2 duo E6750 with 2GB DDR2 and a nvidia GT410 as the GPU. I've already laid out the internal design and figured out how I want it but I will put all that in the thread when I do the build log. It's going to have an orange theme, based upon my favourite hotline miami character, Tony
