    It's interesting to see how do you plan to put the loop in service...
    It's not bad in theory, but I'll follow your worklog to see the temps, the idea is cool!

    agh cheers mino always one for encouragment

    anyways if you would have been following this log you would of heard me say that i was intending to open up my own studio at some point, well due to the fantastic economic market that we are living in i'll never get a loan to get a base so for time being my "garage" is home to "Degenerate designs" more on that later

    But because of a lot of interest local to me for having cases modded and painted i thought ummmm should really do my own in that case, so i know this will grate some people but hey thats buisness.

    ok i was lucky in the fact that i had an air compressor and spray gun and happened to have some aluminium primer lying about i set about preping the surface of the case

    sanded with 800 grit, washed down, tack rag... ready for prime followed by wet sand with 1200grit
    and this is how it turned out

    Hey, I checked out your site. It looks pretty clean, and well organized, however... I was a little freaked out by one of the banner ads on top of the front page... Apparently 2 of my buddies have a crush on me. :eeek: I know I'm dead sexy and everything, but I prefer women... :D :hehe:

    Just beautiful. I could nit-pick at the painted stripes but I'm guessing it's done by hand and not tape?

    haha yeah i can understand where your coming from there!! i wasnt fully happy with the lines of the stripes so will be spending alot off time getting them straight and tidy with either the airbrush or pinstripe brush!!

    but it is coming together slowly now nd its nice to see it almost complete

    cheers all

    Darn, i'm colorblind so those acrylics looks like yellow for me and stripes rather dark red or gold than orange. :)

    I'll be watching, nice work so far.

    Beatiful update!
    I was a little chocked by the paint job, but I have to tell you that the external look is fantastic with the mobo and the waterblock installed!
    good job, Degenerate!
