That is very impressive; you should check out our case modding community! Hehe, I think you'd fit right in

Oh, it's clear coated all right! I used 4 coats of ultra high gloss poly (minwax, sprayed through a HVLP) but I also tinted the clear coat to darken the artwork a tad. Plus 4 coats of turtle wax to finish it off


what I meant to say was that it took 4 sharpies to complete the drawings

Here's what the SC750 looked like before I picked it up from Goodwill for $10 (It had a dead motherboard in it, and also a working Voodoo5 5500 64mb AGP *DUAL GPU! LOL*)





I'll get some pics of the inside tomorrow, as I need to blow all the dust out first (kind of embarrassing) and the wifey is watching Hulu right now, so I suppose it wouldn't be nice to turn it off!
