It's been a while since I've done a case, and I've forgotten how frustrating they can be. This project involved a lot of custom body work on the case, including the shaving of the 3.5" bays, the stock power switch and LEDs, the ridges on the front side were smoothed, and an air intake was added. I also smoothed the vents on the side of the case. The power button is a slice of acrylic rod (from a plunger handle no less) with a swirl polished dime glued on top. The ring around it is made of aluminum which I cut out with a holesaw and then drilled into and polished. The case was painted with plasti-koat products and turned out fairly well. Not amazing, as it was my first attempt at a high gloss two tone paintjob. Sadly, I'm missing two blanking plates, so the pictures don't look great. I'm also too cheap/lazy to finish wetsanding the clearcoat. When/if I do, it'll look a lot shinier. Thanks to Bill@mnpctech for inspiration and advice.
