    A long, long time ago
    In a country not far away
    Gold Rush empire was destroyed
    by menacing pirates!

    A man on an island set out
    to make right what was wrong
    The battle was long
    Parts went a missing
    but the damage was too great!

    The light side had gone
    There was no hope
    His heart clouded by darkness
    Something Something Dark Side!




    Hello everyone!
    Welcome to my mad 24 hour mod that ended up being 48 hours lol
    This project is my personal build, and wasn't for any sponsor, or by any request.
    It's for me. and i made it how i like it :D

    Let's get this started!
    So... i started out with the good ol' damaged gold rush. Stripped her down to her undies.
    Pulled out the rattle cans

    Started by re-spraying the panels.

    Then, i went on to 2 tone the case, in silver and gun metal. (Really liking the gun metal recently)

    Time to start with the insides, and thy loop!

    Then it hit me.. You know what i need ? Stress relief, so naturally i took a blowtorch and a hot knife to my case...because... Why not ?

    Phew, that was much needed.
    ANYWAY.. moving on

    It looked okay, not great though.. not a fan of ''Simple''

    had a think... Window... window needs something

    Time came to really get down and gritty and **** this case up (in a good way though)
    So, i took a paint brush, some silver nail polish, mixed that with some grey spray paint and went NUTS!

    And i give you... A star Wars theme'd something something dark side.

    Decided to take this further, and go balls to the wall.
    Crazy, this looks really really impressive in person, but in photo's it looks,.... meh

    First, i cut up the original front panel, styled it up to match the system.Boom!

    [​IMG]

    Then... i thought.. needs logos.
    So i added ''1138'' to the top left and ''Star Wars'' to the shroud

    [​IMG]

    i then thought... you know what... still not spaceshippy.. it needs engines.

    I've also decided to continue this one, until perfect, for the CM world series 2018.
