indeed a very nice customization. He did a great job and it is very clean. (clap, clap, clap)

I myself am doing some painting to my case (new case for future system).... right now my case is all in pieces and I just got it out of the bath tub after giving it a good washing to get all the oils and whatnot cleaned off. Gonna let it dry out good, tape off all the areas I dont want paint on, primer it, and then paint yellow in the interior (currently outside is black). Then gotta figger out the side panel for a large window.

Hey Sean,

If you were referring to me...... well... not just yet... been out shopping all day today.... but I am taping up the case tonight... Tomorrow i'll be primering.... and then depending on temperature (cant be too cold) ..... will determine if I can paint the final color for the interior of the case... cant paint in the house as the whole family will get high...... lol...

I like the cooling system more than I like the case.

yeah, that was a pretty nice water cooling system... did you notice the huge air bubble in the tube that goes from the filler cap at the top of the case running down to the front of the case in the 5.25" section? I sure hope that air bubble is not part of the cooling system's water flow. Hopefully that bubble is above some water resoviour container....




i'll be finishing taping off my case today and be putting a good coat of primer on it.......

WOW !!!!!

I cant remember how for the life of me on how strong the fumes are when you are using spray paint in an enclosed area.... WOW.... my head still spinning... I think I am HIGH.... WOW.... Next thing you know I'll be just like AngryHippy.... LOL... I think I lost a few brain cells tonight...


This afternoon when the sun was out... and it was kinda warm.... outside i started to spray primer on my case... boy it sure does look nice.. even with primer....


Then it started to get cold... I moved all my parts into the garage... brought out the kerosene heater to warm up the garage so as the final color paint would be able to set.

After the garage got good and warm... I started to spray my case and parts with bright "sunshine" yellow... This is only the first coat... after it sets up for a few days... need to go back and put on a second coat...


With the kerosene fumes.... mixed with the spray paint fumes.... boy... the garage got really potent... head started to spin after a good bit in the fumes...... after the paint got a good hold.... I really had to open up the garage to air it out because it was starting to penetrate into the house just a little bit....


after a few hours of drying... went out to check on the parts... all I have to say is ... I think it is going to look really nice... External of the case is black and interior is yellow.
