    Hi all not been on for a while.
    My next build will be a Cosmos S nothing to posh just a bit of work here and there.
    Keeping cost down a bit i will be using some bits from my last build (white lian li 343b) and some new bits and yes im a tight old git.
    I like the colour of the case so will be keeping the grey with some white thrown in maybe another colour but not sure yet.
    First bit was to spray the mesh bits white and the bars

    To keep the cost down i also swaped the two panels over instead of getting a new panel for the window side.
    I used this idea from another forum .
    I wont be using the big fan on the panel just the mesh which i sprayed white also.

    Got some EC6 blue fluid so i will have a play with both sets of fans to see what looks better and hope to light up the fluid.

    Cosmos S is such a classic case, wonderful for modding.

    Like the shower hoses, but always wondered how hard they are to cut and how you're gonna get them sticking as close as possible to the fittings through time?

    The plastic ones are easiest to cut, but the metal ones look better and are way more flexible. Plus they won't kink.
