    Hi guys it time to work!!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    tolgo la partatia del vetro temperato.v

    [​IMG]

    the beautiful sharkoon shark blade fans supplied with the case 5

    [​IMG]

    via tutto il testo vernicero altre parti separatamente.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I remove the PSU cover and I will try it again in this way it will be easier to paint it.

    [​IMG]

    naked...

    [​IMG]

    let's move on to the front panel, it has 3 tempered glasses, the central one is fixed with screws on rubber washers as it should be
    very easy to disassemble.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    the upper and lower ones are fixed with double-sided tape have only an aesthetic function, nothing functional to avoid breaking them, I heat the surfaces with a hairdryer, a hot gun would be too much perhaps and I would risk deforming the plastic parts, this will make the adhesive softer and easier to remove, by not doing this I would risk breaking the glass.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    now, surface treatment and first painting I limit myself only to scouring and cleaning with alcohol to degrease.

    to create an erosion effect I use a fine steel scouring pad, this will allow me to opacify the paint to give it an opaque and revised effect ready for painting in acrylic color.

    [​IMG]

    I made the triangular plexiglass panels again because the original ones are in tempered glass and cannot be painted.

    surface processing, I took care not to use PRIMER in order to facilitate the peeling for the details

    surface treatment and decoration

    [​IMG]

    the paint must be opaque using a steel sponge

    [​IMG]

    I use acrylic colors applied with a sponge first the black and then the silver (in a very small dose)

    [​IMG]

    this is the effect

    Processing of the side panel which provides the logo with leds rgb

    Preparation of stencils prepared with silhouette studio, decomposition of the logo
    1 the! A! red which will be worked with celophan for food rolled to give the effect marble / wear and get as close as possible to the original logo
    2 areas in black which will be painted later

    the dabbing creates this interesting effect another light layer of red will be applied.

    my intention is also to modify the motherboard to do this I have seen a number of guides for how to make a cover called "armor"
    first I download a photodelleìa motherboard from the manufacturer and with photoshop I bring it in full scale, after which by opening it in adobe illustrator I get the areas to be cut

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I got the mold outliner cu adhesive paper (I had a little to recycle) and I prepare the piece of acrylic (thickness 2 mm)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    cut, I noticed that my motor saw did not cut well the cut was inaccurate and I decided to open it to check ....
    and here's the surprise, years of braying on acrylic and tiny pieces have clogged the gears, I recommend to all modders who use it intensively to do a cleaning once a year

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    everything is gone now

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    finishing, the areas needed continuous checks and adjustments.

    [​IMG]

    now I stop here I wait for the deep cool AIO to check the socket area if it needs further adjustments but I would say that we are there.

    The page opened with just the pic of the blank base of the logo, and I was like, WTF ? :lol:
    Note to self: Dremel are too cheap to have a sealed gearbox. With all the Dremels I've killed it's no surprise.

    well ... the original feet of the case are not good they are too elegant you need something more tough that is in theme with the mod
    I decide to build them, but I'm not going to make six usual feet.
    I start with an aluminum strip ..

    they are composed of two parts, the top and the bottom, with two pins on the sides, in this way the case can settle itself, and there will be no problem
    that it is unstable rubber pads will do the rest.

    [​IMG]

    painted with anthracite gray, I do not put primer, the paint must come off easily to give a wear effect in theme with the mod.

    wear effect with steel wool ..

    today I focus on the internal panels perhaps from the noin photos you understand well but later everything will be clarified better
    internally I will put 2 panels one top folded 5 times
    and a lower one folded in a shield way on the sides, these will serve to put the logos as well as giving a note of color more and some logo as well as filling spaces that remaining empty would not have a nice effect.

    questo è il pannello superiore interno

    paint color anthracite light gray and opaque with steel wool.
