    Ummh you MIGHT be able to mask the front panel and paint the inside of the tube black? Dunno, that might work and give a bit of contrast for the green to also the bottom section of the front panel.. This way you could also sand it down a bit, use more primer and get perfect finish to the tube w/o doing the whole front panel again? :idea:

    Looks nice, I'm not a fan of turbine mods (I sorta did one when I was 14 or so to my first case mod), but you sure made it nicely.

    Yes Jipa that's a good idea. Next week I have my final examination for this schoolyear so not much time to mod. But I think I will use your idea, just paint the inside of the tube black. Since I need to sand a big part of the green paint off anyway.

    Thanks for the idea. :)

    I'm an expert in going around the problems :D You wouldn't believe how many "whoops"s and "well I can do it this way and none will know"s I had with my last build. That's what follows when you're tired and busy trying to get the case done in time.

    Update:

    Modding time :dremel: I've sanded the turbine fan again and I've put a primer on it. :thumb: I've also put a final coat on the top pannel. Last but not least I made a little pannel for the back outtake fan. Look @ update 1 you will know what I mean.

    can't you put that plate on the inside of the case?
    that'll save you a single mm, or maybe 2.
    Or maybe try to countersunk the bolts a bit.

    Gl with it. mod on.

    I'll try to drill 2 holes so that the screws fit. The plate is only 1mm thick so that would not chause to much problems.

    my idea was something like this,to show the "velocity look" of turbine.
    [​IMG]
    or you could use more pieces of alu in various shapes. one of my idea is this:

    polished alu could be very nice on that green sidepanel,i think.:clap:
