    I've done a few upgrades myself... Know how that goes. I think I still have about 4 hard drives sitting around in random places... :D

    The Fan coltroler was genius, and the lockmechanism for the topp was real nice

    Hal, you never cease to amaze me. Awesome job getting that slim DVD rom mounted. Maybe I can't see it, but where is the eject button for the DVD?

    I LOVE THIS PROJECT!
    Seriously, very nice work Hal. Great ideas and creativity, superb craftsmanship, and awesome looks. You have done a very nice job so far. This easily makes the top "quadrant" of favorite case mods I've seen. Keep it up man! :thumb:

    Hi Hal, I was checking out your worklog and wanted to know if you sanded
    the 'can' before you painted it or not. The first pic has a brushed aluminum
    look and the one after the sketch looks like a mirror. :thumb:

    well the can was all stainless steel. all i did was tape it up and cut it. it got really dirty with the cutting and everything i did to it. however, i did clean it with like simple green degreser. then i had it powdercoated candy apple red, not painted... i needed something that would hold up better than paint!

    thanks for watching!

    something small to get you going!


    add some socket head bolts, aluminum spacers, diamondplate aluminum, a holesaw, and lots of sanding and buffing and you get something like this...

    just like i said, i wanted it a bit more flashy... there is still more to come to this top. this is just the first part of the finished top lid. tonight i should be posting the finished one.

    what do you think?

    well the top lid is done. i will not do anymore to it, i dont want to over-do anything on this case. its going to go well with the other things i have for this case. just a hint, it will go right along the lines of the lid, just on smaller scale! :worried:

    little bit of pics will do you well till next update!

    Excellent work :thumb:

    Are you going to do something similar on the bottom? Personally, I think some angle cut diamond plate wrapping around the bottom would look awesome :p
