This is my first log in this forum, and i hope you enjoy it and forgive me if i mistake too much with english. The full log (until today) has about 200pics and you can find it in my personal web (in my signature) but only in spanish, then i`m goin to try to summarize a little. The mod is based in an Antec Sonata Case and more or less inspired in the high tech of japan, especially in the work of Shirow Masamune (mangaka). With the preceding mod (KumoNoSuJou Chieftec Tower) i realized (maybe late...) that these tower was a little big and heavy to move it to a Lan party. For that reason i began this mod with a easier transportable case. The first thing is split off the hull and the chassis for a easy work... Marking the cuts. I cut off every piece off useless (but heavy) metal. The main cuts done and sanded for paint. You can see a little window in the back of the chassis. like i had to cut the front to allow space for the front fan, then i had to put that L shape reinforcements to support the secon HD tray. With two of the original four trays i have enought. That reinforcements are longs, so is needed cut them until the tray can go througt and rest in place properly. Paint for the chassis in black and the rear grill in silver. The enlarged holes for the radiator can be seen. The inner faces of the hull was covered with carbon fibre tunning vinyl. And i used some spare cuts to cover some surfaces on the chassis and protect they for scratches and other damages, and fit well with the theme. The outter shell prepared for work. The main inconvenient in this case is ANTEC word in both sides of the case. I`m covered them with aluminium. With care, the ALU (1mm) can be bended easily by hand. Left side and top marks for cuts... Cuts. The top openning is for a pasive exhaust grill to evacuate the heat from the case. Fitting test for the (unpainted) grill. After i modded it, painted the grill in bright black. Fitting test for the piece of ALU. Also i added a pair of black handles for transport. The piece of alu in the bottom of the right side. Covering the inner faces with "Carbon Fibre" tunning vinyl... The new location for the Power Reset Leds, with chrome Led holders.
