Looking great Defo needs Red and Blue LEDS
I'm thinking it's because it's a car window. About the right size and position for a car window. And he's putting something like a shield/logo/words under it, like it would be under the window on a cop car. Only slanted. I think it's inspired.
In that case - it will look great like it is. Never thought about it that way.
shaping up more! nice white stripe. pretty nice
that came out really great
I moved on to the clear coats.
The stripe is pretty much done.
Now time to prep the left panel to cutting, sanding, painting, etc. Should I put anything here?
Yes, the police logo
yea a police logo is a nce idea
Any suggestions? It's getting too hard to not stick to a specific department theme especially when it comes donwn to adding a logo. Should I just get a LAPD one?
I've been trying to find a way to fill the void between the front and the case frame, so like many suggestions received I went with "bars". Let me know your honest opinion.
I used the grill top that came with R2-D2's head. The fans are for effect. I'm not sure what colors I'm actually using. Any ideas?
I attached it with a zip tie.
looks cool, like bars to a jail...
I think that one looks best by far. I honestly thought the police theme would come out looking corny, but its going awesome man. Keep it up
Yup, the bars looks awesome!
Oh, yes, just get a normal LAPD one.
I really like the bars i'm glad you used my idea
Thanks for sharing!
More to do...
The left window is done and the panel is receiving the white coat first.
I also decided to paint three bay covers, because I was planning on adding a white DVD drive to the top
BUT! then I had a problem. I forgot that the drives are attached via this slide-in cage.
The top corner (This is the inside) has a piece of metal at the top where the floppy drive was.
this is the outside...
I'm not using a floppy drive, especially on top of the CD/DVD drives so I cut it out. Then another problem popped up.
The drive doesn't fit!! I guess it needs rails?
If I even get the drive in, what can fit in this slightly thinner 5.25 bay?
I would suggest an LCD screen, or maybe a custom emblem that says "Police" or perhaps your name "TheGreatSatan. Always good to promote your own name over the internet.
