    You can get Bondo at pretty much any hardware store, an automotive store if you have one by you, and Wal Mart might even carry it.

    yeah the cover looks very stupid i mean you first off got a huge hole underneath it and then you add this ugly eyesore on top of it and the cover is just a........ square well rectangle and i has nothing to do with the look of the pc

    the velcro has "permanent" adhesive so can i still get it off to bondo it?

    theres not a huge hole under it, the hole is perfect to fit the ps1 adapter

    OO i have an idea with the bondo if i ever get it

    the width may be perfect but the height is too large

    i think its fine

    but anyways i couldnt think of how to explian this and what not, but here goes (btw where in walmart would bondo be if they have any)

    Im gonna cover up the hole so theres just enough room for the controller to fit, and the hole i drilled for the cable tie (if i can get the velcro off), and im gonna make some "walls" that go down to the case itself so you cant see the case all you can see is the controller port

    edit: hmm i think i may do this possibly for the top window

    [​IMG]

    except i also have a window in the same position on the other side panel, so you see right through the case. Then i dunno what to put on the bottom half and on the bottom half of the other side

    WalMart carries bondo. For work like that I would either use a bit of your mesh as a base because normal bondo can be pretty brittle, or use the bondo that has fiberglass in it.

    Your chrome paint idea is probably not going to come out how you want. Chrome paints seldom give you the finish you want. As for white, great choice, its what I'm doing. :rock:

    are you gonna paint soon? i would like to see how it turns out before i do it

    How would i polish my case? i kinda want to keep it silver but i dont want it to be as dull as it is right now (i want a lil shiny) i dont think its really paint except for maybe the top

    oo were in walmart would the bondo be located in? and do they call it somethin else over there?

    I have it painted white already, let me look to see if I have any pics.

    The bondo and sandpaper you're looking for are in the automotive section at WalMart.

    You polish you rcase by using very fine grit sandpaper and wet sanding, then using rubbing compound. I don't know if you could do that with the factory finish though? You might be able to put a layer of clearcoat on then use rubbing compound on that. Not sure, somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

    OK i think i may have gotten a window, what ya think?

    [​IMG]

    Hows it look? I good do the dragon on the top side, or i can do the 2 rounded rectangle windows on both side panels so you can see right through the case, and the dragon on the middle/bottom of the right side (the side where u see the back of the mobo)

    ya so either like in the pic, or the 2 round/rectangles on both side panels and the dragon on the non mobo looking side

    what ya think? How exactly could i cut the dragon? i doubt i can do it with a big cutting disc, do i use this?

    [​IMG]

    or like one of these tungsten carbide cutters?
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    is that right?

    so ya what do i use and should i put the dragon like in the pic, or on the other side panel and do top rectanges on both sides, and figure out another window for the mainside?

    if i do the dragon like in the pic, what will i do on the other side panel?

    Have fun Dremeling that...lol...It has more sharp curves and edges than even mine does. Good luck, though, it's a sweet case panel design. If you want to know what tools I used to do mine so far, there's a list of them in this post.
