    Personally, I reckon you should leave it as is - I'm also a fan of clean designs, and you've hit that style spot on with this case.

    Have you thought about painting the wheels black? They look a bit out of place at the moment in contrast to the black/yellow/white case.

    Like the clean look! The front could use just something small.

    Will it have any lightning effects? :)

    amazing mod the rad would look pretty cool if you were able to mount it somewhere on the outside like the front and placing the fans underneath so all you would see would be the radiator fins or even on the sides

    Do you use any special techniques or tools when painting?

    Damn Paul, you move fast :hehe:

    The Stacker is looking really good, can't believe that you are painting it with a normal "rattle can" paints. Btw. what brand of paint do you use with this?

    Do you have a deadline with this project, I was just wondering cause you are modding it really fast?

    I'm looking forward to seeing what you're going to do with the innards of the case.

    Dang! That's Sweet!
    ... ooooh and I like yellow too
    You've captured the look of the bike perfectly as it is , do not add too much as I think it will detract from the clean fast look that it has

    Decided to do a bit with the fans while waiting on a few bits coming.

    Took a couple of Yate Loons which seem to be the fan of choice these days plus they are cheap as chips as i wasn't real certain how this would turn out.

    Used Pete's "how to guide" to dismantle the fans and gave them a coat of Plastic Primer which is clear but gives the paint a good key and then sprayed the fan bits all white while the frames got the yellow treatment.

    When the white was dry, masked off the edges of each blade with thin line masking tape and hit the exposed bits with black.

    I got a couple of genuine Yamaha tuning fork logos to go in the centres followed by a coat of clear coat and that's another job jobbed :D
