    Hi guys,

    i just wanted to wrap up a work log for a mod i am working on since last year.
    Due to the release of the film i didn't want to push it out before that. Now Endgame is also running, so i thought why not put a little worklog together for my "still" ongoing mod.

    Case (MC500P) and CPU cooler (MasterAir G100M) are sponsored by Coolermaster.
    The board (H370M-ITX) is sponsored by AsRock.

    A quick overview:

    I wanted to create a Captain Marvel mod prior to any spoilers that might or might not be true after watching Infinity War, where Nick Fury sends out a distress call with his pager.

    The idea was to go for a suit like look, which i managed to do with synthetic leather.

    Also i was pretty sure back then, that the Quantum-Realm (introduced in AntMan) would play a part of either Captain Marvel or Endgame.
    So for me was clear that i want to get some kind of Quantum going...which i ended up doing with a LCD sidepanel.
    I also tried to create a pager, which could be used as a mobile phone and also as a remote power button for the PC.

    Still not finished but for sure in the "Endgame". :)

    so basically after recieving the case i started to wrap stuff with synthetic leather.

    the more delicate part i had thick paper wrapped with it and for the bigger parts i used foam rubber mats.

    for the pager i printed a case that fits on my old xperia z3 compact.

    the hardest part was to get the frames done. yes they're all printed but still they broke occasionally, some colors were nice but did not last (couldn't be coated) and so on...

    putting in the lcd was not that hard once it was disassembled and i found the right way to power the circuit board.

    i reused the backlight acrylic of the monitor as a rgb psu shroud and to cover up holes in the case where the cages for HDDs and other drives were.

    because my black Palit GTX 1060 would not fit the theme and i also decided not to paint it (whole inside of the case got silver) i tried to print my own GPU Cover, which worked out pretty well.

    i painted as much as i could in silver to get a good reflection for the lcd which sits behind the tempered glass.

    pretty much done (steps could be probably alot more detailed), and small things left to do like details, finishing up the pager and closing the gap between front and psu shroud/plate.
