well, i have looked and looked and found that this is probally one of the most helpful forums out there, i want your help. so i have decided to mod a new case. i got a brand new box for 19 bucks and no sooner did it get unraped, did it get worked on! i hope to have this look really really clean. this is what it looked like when i got it out the case... i really liked the ports all in the front bezel, so i decided that i liked them and i did not want to cover them up with filler or such, as i went on with the modding. so i just cut out a front window, and added two 80mm fan holes. aand i cut a few windows in the top panel: next i found that when i cut the two holes in the front of the case, the small vents that i liked so much, would cause all sorts of trouble if i tried to add bondo to them. the filler would just flow all into the vents and look gross and would be hard as hell to remove after dry. so i found a way to get around that and keep the vents: after i did that, i added filler and putty and sanded everything down. i also wanted to add the fans to the chassis. so those went on spacers to be moved close to the front bezel holes. a shot amount of fan ducting will route the fan exhaust back to the holes in the chasis. here is the fan spacer problem fixed! next i had a slight problem with the front window. the curve of the door was leaving a slight gap from the door and the plexi, so i cut a piece to fit the gap: so, i guess that is all for now. im having a hard time trying to find a place to paint, since its still very cold here. and i dont want to pay to have this painted; costs too much. i also have not found a good color also. that is tough. anyone know any good color combo's? thanks for all the comments and critiques!
