looks great! spray cans or spray gun?
been thinking about this too as my
beige cd/cdrw/dvdrom fronts look dumb
in my silver/ case.
one day when i have some time...
Very nicely done, looks nice...i painted my case last year, although i did the interior...went from grey to red...painting seems to be one of those inexpensive things that really makes a difference.
hey- you changed your avatar MJC...
...bout time eh? I'm a big procrastinator
I used the last thing I had laying around to paint my case... Tremclad Gloss Rust Paint
well, it should be resistant to rusting if
a watercooling system starts to leak
Looks great. I like the treatment on the corners there. Just what is that though?
Could you elaborate...? I'm not sure what you mean...
Looks like it came out perfect, nice job
Now if I ever need to do mine I know who to ask!
This actually isnt my first re-paint, I've painted 2 other cases before this one. I've mastered that part of modding... now I have to figure out cutting, because that window is awful.
Cutting isnt so bad. Just make sure you got a nice Dremel tool and plenty of these:
Those are what I use, and I go through them pretty quick too. Grinding down a thin piece of metal (the side of your case) just tears through these guys pretty quickly, but they get the job done nicely.
I use only 3 different sized stones for all different curves, angles and corners - that’s all I need to get mostly anything done.
I'd like to start with a rounded rectangle. The acrylic window behind the current cut-out is very large. I just need to figure out something for mounthing that centre fan, because there are no mounts in the window, just the metal.
Mine mounts right through the acrylic.. maybe yours isnt as thick as mine though... I would think they would be the same thickness though.
This is the case I'm using now:
It mounts right through the acrylic.
Very nice case... maybe I'll invest in a new window.. I'm just trying to keep things free at the moment.
BTW I have some new pics of mine from earlier today...
Pic 2 (gotta love the dust on the fan grill)
