    I have been modding! just not updating soz :D


    The back of the case has been like the front.... a bit for me to get my head around... but after a few different tries i think im happy with this.

    The hardest part was keeping the rounded corners all the way through the section. This is still early days and a fair bit to go. Still need to add the GPU hole.

    And some random stuff that will end up in the bin :p

    Going here :thumb:

    Thanks Canardwc :rock:

    Still has a lot of work to do to it... i want to add a lot more detail... lower diffuser and some detail around the blow hole with maybe some overlay.

    Ive made the GPU wider to accommodate the side adjusting GPU bracket.

    It's a large panel but light enuf to not add too much extra weight.

    There.. Fixed it. Don't get me started on fat USB sticks or power supply bricks without a lead.

    TYVM 4LIEN :rock:

    Cheers Canarwc tymate :rock:

    Weldon3 for anything that's flush, Weldon16 for everything else . Pretty the same stuff ive been using since my first plex case mods almost 20 years ago :D

    When you find a good glue you stick to it !!!!!! :lol:

    It's surprisingly rigid.. Very little side to side flex... and once the 4.5mm side panels are added it will be as good as any chassis case.

    Cheers cP i think it says that on the side of the can :)

    Small update again soz guys, Well.... alot of work for small results :D

    Almost done with this panel.. Fill a few ruff spots with spot putty a rub and final primer.

    First off was to get some primer down.

    A lot more sanding some more primer and a few coats of spray putty.

    fact is, you really went the extra mile on this case :wallbash:, really stunning to see the way you form shapes out of acrylic :jawdrop:

    Show them how it's done. :rock:
    It's getting wilder all the time. The last case pic looks like the post office smashed your case...in a good way.
