    not really my style, but nice work. i think the silver is a good choice too to offset all of the other neon colors you have going there. it will do go to bring the attention to the brighter colors inside. you did a nice job with the shaping. depending on how the silver turns out, maybe add a little metal flake for some more pop.

    Thanks, yeah it should look pretty subtle with the silver paint job and tinted windows and "come to life" at night although I will probably only turn on all the fancy lights at LAN parties lol.

    No your eyes aren't playing tricks on you, this is an update! :D

    Since the last update I have been running my rig like this, some days I have to search through the piles of crap on my desk to find my power button! lol

    [​IMG]
    I felt that 4, 4" UV cathodes weren't producing enough light so I bought a cluster of 6 UV LEDs which turned out to be better than all of my cathodes! not so good for tan lines though :hehe: (sorrry Kate)

    HATE pin holes.. all gone now though!

    The nose cones had annoying little screw holes which had to be filled :dremel:

    Nice SFF mod. It use to be everyonce in a while you whould see a SFF case let alone a SFF mod but they're making a comeback. Hopefully they bring back SLI to the SFF market theres Crossfire but its not the same as 2 BFG GTX280's in a shoebox size case

    Thanks for all of your comments, means a lot to me.. It looks like another very busy week coming up but I really want to get this paint job finished so I can finally put my case back together! lol There are a few "dots" which have shown up today after overnight drying so im going to give it the ol' wet'n'dry treatment :D which should hopefully fix that before the next coat of paint.
