Hi everyone!
Been a while since I last did any beige mods, but have just gotten started on a new project!
Found this case at the recycling center for $15 a while back.
Not quite 100% sure what I want it to look like just yet, although I did go and by some silver and green spray paint today! biggrin.gif
Definitely getting rid of the ugly plastic front and making my own with some extra intake fans.

Anyway so far I have taken everything out, and spray painted the top cover silver, although the paint is a bit uneven so I will need to do a few coats to fix that. tongue.gif

Have finally made a little more progress worthy of an update. smile.gif

I have painted the side panels so far, and started cutting out the front hole for where the 120mm fan is to go, only problem is I don't have any of the reinforced dremel cutting wheels, only the really thin carbide ones which keep breaking, probably an angle grinder is what I really need rolleyes.gif

Plastic feet and brackets have been painted dark silver although it looks almost black in the images!

Also scavenged some nice 80mm antec fans out of an PSU that was dead, planning on putting those at the back as exhaust fans and the larger 120mm at the front panel with maybe a 92mm at the side panel. (Weird size I know, can't remember what I got it from!)
