    ...or vinyl dye them. either way, it'll look pretty good! Great job so far, I like the AMD and Nvidia appliques.

    I was very pleased at the way the paintwork turned out on the front bezil for my first attempt at spraying ;) Dad used to spray cars all day long so it must be in my gene's lol. Bezil could do with another coat though and the rest really needs doing when i get some money :(

    Dude now you have it easy, you can mod the hell out of that case now since you don't have a system in it, and then when done you can put the parts in it. :thumb:
