    We have P38, davids isopons have p38, p40

    Easylite and Metalix are my favourite, both easy to sand and shape

    Draeth1 K&H (brand) spray putty is available thru most auto departments & stores (at least in Australia)

    I'd suggest you ask at an auto paint store or the auto section of DIY stores

    It is more like spot putty than bondo, usually you'd use
    bondo (thickest) then
    spot putty (thin layer) and lastly
    spray putty (very thin layer) for the final coat before applying the paint primer.

    Bondo is a brand name auto body filler in North America, so any other body repair material should work equally well.

    i'm not sure what the name of the stuff i'm using is, but its easy enough to sand and sticks to everything, including skin as i discovered yesterday. Its also slighty rubbery so any flexing while making the case does not cause its to crack. I should have taken some pics i suppose, but i'm almost done now. I'll put a bunch of pics up later mebe.

    What can I say.... great work. It's simply amazing how you can start with any old case and transform it into a true work of art.

    Didn't want to run the old metal back plate, so i thought i'd try something different. :D
    Stepping out to my favourite shop, i picked up a cut peice 8mm thick clear plex!

    [​IMG]


    A qik test to see it fits right, all the motherboard points and needed holes, mounts etc will be added later.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    The plex panel it self isn't the actual mod! but the idea to diffuse and light it is!

    the idea came to me while doing the front light diffusers, its just going to be on a much larger scale.

    A qik test on a small peice of off-cut confirms the idea will work.

    [​IMG]



    next is to sand the peice of plex with 1200 wet and dry, the small scratched catch the light beem and allow the whole flat surface to light, rather then just letting the light travel thru to the ends like on Hevy plex SLB mod i did for Zak.

    [​IMG]


    Adding some light.

    [​IMG]


    Once i could see that the effect was goin to work it was time to peel off the protective paper and get to work on my motherboard back panel.


    Simple wetrub in the laundry sink again with 1200 W/D and a 3M rubber hand block, all of 15 mins work and is done to both sides to achive an almost frosted look.

    [​IMG]


    The end result.

    [​IMG]


    Next is to hook up some lights for testing.


    [​IMG]


    turn off the lights and see if it works!

    [​IMG]

    i was pretty impressed at what a great internal light feature this simple mod makes,even with the motherboard and internal bolted in there will still be enuf see-able area to keep this a main feature inside the case.
