    Holy cow and other animals!!
    I'm really not sattisfied with how the front door turned out!! I can clearly see where the bondo is because it seems like the bondo is a little bit lower than the plastic, making it look like the F'ing Grand canyon! :wallbash: I'm wondering if I maybe should sand down the primer and apply more bondo :sigh: But I don't know if I care enough.... I know it will stick out like a flashing neon sign in a respected neighborhood, when I apply the shiney black paint.... :duh:

    if it annoys you now, it'll annoy you every time you look at it in the future. Little bit more effort now will make it perfect.
    (coming from me, this is pretty wierd, I'm the king of, 'it'll do', but you know what I mean right?)

    Indeed Phuzz. I have decided to apply more bondo... although it's my first project there's no reason to be sloppy. and I think the case deserves it, since I have put quite a lot of work into it. I'll post pics of it now..

    Front door primed

    Yesterday I primed the front door, but as you can read above, it didn't go too well.. so I have decided to apply more bondo.

    All together (everything except the door is wet sanded so, as you can see, much of the primer is gone)

    Wow





    That door is probably the shiniest thing in the world. Well, ok, maybe I'm being a bit over the top today, but damn man, that is a really nice finish you've got there. Every time you look at that door, I hope you feeel proud of what you've achived, especially considering this is your first mod and you've not only designed and dremeled a sweet design, but the paint work is tops.

    ok, I better stop before your head explodes with pride, I'm really looking forward to seeing it all start to come together...or have you already started to use the case? ;)

    thanks a lot guys! I aaalmost exploded phuzz ;)

    I want to finish the case (without the front and doors) as soon as possible, cuz i want to start using it :) but I't will require some pinting to be done. I "finished" up the top last week or so, but it didn't turn out like I wanted. so I'll sand down one layer and apply one more coat od black gloss, and then the clear lacquer again. I think the problem was that when I used rubbing compound, I had sanded a bit too deep so I got through the clear coat.

    Tomorrow I'm going to "mod" my computer desk. mount two speakers upside down to the plate over my monitor that is :D I'll probably also paint the backside of the dragon door, since it will be visible through the jagged door.
