I decided tonight to fab the whole case together, then once I have it perfect I will take it apart to paint.
I did a test of the grey I want to use, let me know what you think.
I do have to apologize. I forgot to really take photos of the process while I was building tonight. But you can see what I did. I cut another piece of the angle aluminum for the front support. Then I measured out the mid plate and cut it out of acrylic. And then drilled holes in the acrylic and the supports.
While I was test fitting the 5.25 box I decided I needed it a little shorter. So I cut both sides again, drilled holes and attached with rivets. I also have decided to use rivets for everything I can. They are just too easy! Anyone know where custom colored rivets can be found though?
So that's it for this update, thanks for stopping by!
Ebay used to have a decent selection of different colored rivets. Here is the seller's store that I purchased my black ones from. They were great to deal with, and also were able to get me some tapered rivets that they didn't have listed in their store. Might not hurt to ask if they don't have what you're looking for.
Well black for sure. What do guys think, green and grey as well? Idk, maybe not. I am also throwing around the idea of painting the little figure on the heatsink gold and then maybe gold rivets? I'm open to ideas.
This build looks like it's going to be beast when completed! You had me at Tri-580, but the sheer size of the case is just icing on top When I saw the bright yellow pieces I couldn't quite see how they'd fit in, but it goes along very nicely with the matte'ish gray! Subbed and all that and in for a good ride it seems
