    Very nice bog work. You've got some great ideas here and excellent exocution as well to back them up :thumb:

    I love the "interference" design of the dual blowhole and the freeform work. How did you drill the holes? Was it with a drill press or just from the back. I find attepmting to drill into a chamfer by hand a futile effort at best.

    [off topic] How does one go about getting a job in a shop like that? I'd love to pick up some of those skills DÈF¥âÑt¸.·´¯`¤. By the way, think you could post a guide for bondoing over on this site, too? [/off topic]

    Some great work man, I'm not sure if I like the front panel or not...maybe when its done, but it's got a big pieced together look to it.

    Ya i know what your saying about it looking pieced togehter. ALlot of that is because its got tape around it still and the bay mod is primered in that pic, and theres no fan behind the intake. Trust me, itll look much better once its all painted and what not.

    Thanx for all the compliments everyone!!! :D :thumb:

    Bad News: Dremmel Broke
    Good News: First Side panel will be done very soon.
    Good News: Get a New xpr dremmel. :D

    Until Next.

    On that note about the front, are you going to blend the drive bay devices into one seamless piece? That would look best, with the rest of the case looking as it does.

    Did you just use scrap metal or is it an OEM item?

    Pistol >> Im not too sure what im going to do with the drives. Im messing around with some LED stuff at the moment, maybe bondo the front of the drives smooth or something, thats the only part of this project thats kinda up in the air at the moment.

    Phoeneous >> That is the stock top panel of the case. I just outline the area in which i wanted the bondo to be, then i cut the tape away with an exacto razor. :)

    Thanx guys any more questions ill be happy to answer. :D

    | UPDATE 3/08 |

    Allright, well I got a little more work done, I drew this little flame lick for the top panel. Im going to be cutting that same size lick out of Plexi, then some polished aluminum lick (a little smaller) will be placed on top of the plexi. (the plexi will also be lit by Blue Leds.

    Ive made a bondo fan holder for the outside of the case side panel. I thought merely mounting the fans on the outiside of the case would be very tacky, so i got the bondo out and came up with this beast :D Sanind took forever.

    Another update to come soon!

    looking good.
    Just wondering; Why did you put the fan outside of the case side panel??
    You've put the rest all inside?? Would't it look nicer on the inside of the panel like the rest??
