    After much searching and hunting...I say, this is 1 active forum on case modding...

    Well first...I'm new to modding...and all those case I've seens over these few years really make me go gaa gaa over it. So I've decide to start on mine.

    Here's the case I will be working on...
    [​IMG]
    Simple, Plain and stealthy look...

    [​IMG]
    Front cover opens all the way to the side

    [​IMG]
    Top = Left, Bottom = Right Panel

    My idea will be spraying the inside with UV lime green, sleeving and spraying my PSU wif UV red. For the side and top panels...the left I've decided to cut accordingly...whereas the right panel needs some ideas frm you guys...

    all suggestions/critiz are welcome =)

    i like that case, good choice

    maybe something to go along with the folding and opening of the front is a way to go

    Edit: i didnt have any luck with the spray on invisible uv paint, the kind that goes on clear and is supposed to glow a color under uv. Couldnt get it to glow under uv at all. Others may have had better luck.

    currently i have a couple of prblms with require some advice...

    1st rivets...i need to remove my top panel so i can spray the inside and drill the top panel for some ventilations.

    2nd, paints...i have a couple of flueresence green paint...but is flueresence = uv? kinda puzzles me...

    lastly...right panel...as seen in the pics...my side panels have ventilating grills...really spoils the look...no prblm for the left side...but the right side's grills happens to be in the way of the mobo tray...any suggestion for the right panel?

    initially, i wanted to juz cut ard the grills...and fit an etched acrylic and couple of LED to light it up...but later on find it kinda werid looking...

    When i removed the rivets on my wavemaster i just used an oversized drilbit, drilled one side away and then it poped out on the other side =) But it might be so that you dont have enough space for a drill idonno really...

    And i dont know if lighting the right side up with some leds would that bad idea, would look pretty good with some frosty sanded acrylic and some leds =) .....usually making these decision based on pics is pretty hard ...but youll figure it out=) ....

    Good luck on the project!!

    Yes indeed. Rivets can easily be removed by drilling out the 'head'. When the head is of it just falls out. Make shure you only drill the rivets and not into the case itself. Beware that you have a plan for replacing those rivets, you can't use thos erivets again. Use something like bolts.

    The paint is difficult to say. Maybe the shop you bought it can tell it, or you can test it. Paint a piece of old metal and light it up with a UV lamp. My feeling tells me it;s not UV reactive, not many paints are. Good luck with your modding and welcome to the Bit-tech forum.

    According to XE.com, 100 Malaysian Ringgits = about $26 USD. or about 14 UKP.

    Looks like a cool case; I don't like casefront doors, but that's just me! The rounded windows look like they'll be great.
