I really cant spend the money on an alu case right now, so i went ahead and took the vacation days i was planning on making a fanbus and hook up my LCD to paint it instead. Before.... and after... I was a bit anxsious to post pics so i didnt buff it up before-hand... the smudges came off easily. Also, the digicam we have is a bit low quality so it makes it look pretty grainy. I also put in a top window to view the CDROM window mod i did, and covered up the wires behind it with a dead 3 gigger i had laying around. The entire inside is painted black now so the pic didnt come out as well. Quick note... my motherboard tray came with a hole almost directly behind the processor... I got a burr up there one day and decided to see what a fan would do back there and found it decreased temp by around 5 degrees.... while i did the painting i went ahead and cut a larger hole in the back so the air would be blowing across the entire processor backside... Im going to run to homedepot and grab some rubber window stripping and clean the windows up a bit asap... The bay with the design in it is just that... I took a bayplate that came with my floppy drive, cut a tribal symbol out of black paper, sandwiched it like so: strip of clear plastic, design, strip of translucent plastic, strip of clear plastic and taped it to the inside of the bayplate... When the plate was down low (like in the before pic) the blue neon lit it well, but now that it is on top, im going to have to find a way to light it seperately which shouldnt be a problem. There are alot of things i could have done different, or better, but i only had a couple days to do it so it was a semi rush situation. LATE!
