    my first thoughts were " omg whats that for a kind of colour" but combined with blackmesh and the red fans it looks really great!

    lookin excellent, very nicely done. i've got two things to pick on...1) that top vent with the not so smooth curve! it's been pointed out already i know, but i really think you should go over it. It really is worth it, the rest of the case is done sooo perfectly. If you have to buy some more filler or resin or paint or whatever so be it i say!
    2) the red fans,they look nice but i don't think they go with the light blue...i reckon either black or light to med green or any shade of blue.... jmo however! i think the curve up top is more important, otherwise you'll regret not doing it when it's all finished. Again, the case is looking great, all the rest of the curves & vents look awesome!

    derbaum:thanks for the comment man:D
    mvagusta:thanks for the honest opinion mate really appreciate it,when i first done the top it looked good but it was all primer it was only when the final colour was done and the contrast between the blue an black that it really noticed,when i removed the masking i was gutted but thought hey i can live with it,but now ive had 2 people say about it ive tried to round it more as best i can an i think it looks alot better now hope you agree,im happy with it:D

    just gotta touch up the black on the grill now,should hopefully look even rounder then caus theres some overspray where it should be black.
    hope you agree looks alot better an only took about an hour an half to do

    the grill is permenently fixed to the case so i had to apply filler to the front edge and shape it with wet'n'dry paper,would have been aalot easier if the grill was removeable but it had to be fixed to stengthen the whole top of the case,overall im happy with the result an really glad that you guys commented to give me the motivation to get on an do it,like i said earlier i was a bit dissapointed with it but thought i could live with it but looking at it now im happy with it.

    cheers guys:thumb:

    thanks guys:D
    Mankz&mvagusta just wanna say a big thank you,if it wasnt for your honest comments i would have just left the top as it was,but now im more than pleased with the results:thumb:

    when i flatted the front back to re-fill,prime an paint the paint flatted lovely so u may see me polishing a bit sooner than i thought:D,helps leaving it next to a radiator i suppose...lol maybe the end of the week or early next week fingers crossed just don't wanna try too soon an ruin it.

    just real glad i kept half a can of paint back just in case,still got a bit left but hoping im not gonna need it.

    thanks again guys and keep the honest opinions coming

    woot! she's perfect now :rock: don't rush things, if you have to give it 2 weeks or whatever to cure then so be it! i'm sure you'll have other things to do for the internals and/or components

    widmod;i did look at putting a slimline one in but either the mobo tray was in the way or it would obscure the veiw of the pump/res,an as the only time i use a dvd is to install games i dont really mind having it external.
    steve09;thanks for the comments mate,the fans are going tho,should have some pics of the new ones im thinking bout soon:D
    domestic12;thanks man it has taken hell of alot of hours to get where it is now,a fellow gamer:thumb: should have an update this week
