    So...This is the first time I'm involved in modding.
    This case will propably be one of those "blue case and a blue cathode" things, but anyway, I'll put this here.

    So, the case is compucase's damn ugly white 6919. I'll do a side- and topwindow to it and make a hole to the front for a radiator. I'll also paint it.

    Heres a pic of new 6919

    Then I made a starting point with drilling machine and cut out the figure with compass saw. Afterwards I figured out that I should have sawed closer to the contour. :rolleyes:

    Unfortunately I didn't took a pic when dremeling, but this is how it looked after that. I also drilled the pop-rivets away and separated the body from the case.

    After that, I made a hole for the radiator to the body.
    That was an ordinary compass saw action.

    The next thing to do is to paint the body, but I'll not do it until two weeks.

    look at how the top, right and bottom panels are all one. You could cut the right panel out of that, making your case now having four independant panels over two. Along with that, you could detach/attach the right panel as neccicary, and gain access to the wire hiding places behind the motherboard.

    You should paint the case (or the frame) pink, and the frame (or the case) black...... Really Hugh Heffner style

    So...A bit of progress here.
    Half of the painting is done. But everything didn't go as planned (as usual).
    Maybe we should let the pictures do the talking :)

    This was the paint, which I planned to do the paintjob of the body (inside the case)

    Here it is, it was really nice looking paint.

    But...Okay, it was a small can, but I believed that there would have been a little bit more of it.
    So I went to search through our garage and found some blue paint. Actually I didn't like it, but it'll do.

    But what has happened? Well, i put some tape too early :duh:
    Fortunately the rearpanel will be against the wall, so no one will see it.

    Of course I painted the radiator also! :)

    More to come. I'm eager to see how ugly this will look :hehe:

    :sigh: I'm not sure if thick layer of paint reduces the thermal performance of a rad ?

    (black and blue, nice, but the "blue" you used does not seem right to me :( )

    Then I must gently sandblast it. Well, we'll see.
    Flash distorts the color, but I don't like it either. But I didn't have anything else in shelfs. :sigh:
