You making this for a contest of theirs or what?
A new concept in noise reduction hehehe
Deaddly-app@He explains it above.
So what are you planning for the interior as you've got the bottom of the case lined with the thing they use for car seats.
Keep up the good work, very impressed with the paintjob!
Thx kumo, I didn't notice it, Ill look back over the posts
That's an awesome mod !
I love it.
Keep working on it dude.
That thing is just dripping "sexy"! Astounding flame work (and you guys *know* I like flame work!)
The paint is superior... a beautiful job! (but then, after seeing your fan grills, I have no doubts about your painting prowess!)
Not sure if you remember, I pinged you on a flame 92mm fan grill for my rig... I had *no* idea that you were so adept at case modding as well.
Simply a beautiful and original mod.
I am raptured, and subscribing to see this thing completed.
Excellent, excellent job.
So, where are the fuzzy dice going to hang?
Actually, the upholstery should help with soundproofing!
Wow!!! So what is next
After listening to my Wife's suggestion I added in some upolstered panels to the front of the case behind the bezel. She thought it looked too plain and unfinished. I am very pleased with the result.
I also mounted the twin face grills w/ spacers on the back of the case and finished all the rear dice thumbscrews.
These panels are the same pillow-top look as the interior panel.
looks really nice even with the door closed:
I still have the remaining fan holes to chop out and mount the rest of the fan grills, I can only work on it a little here and there as we have plenty of other work in the shop that I have to dedicate the bulk of my time to, but I hope to have it finished in the next 2-3 weeks or so.
Guyz, it's the first rule: always listenning to your wife !!!
She had a great idea, it's really a crazy mod !
So..how much would you charge to sell one like that then?
I managed to apply the clear coat yesterday and added the feet to the case. This clear coat is some of the best money can buy and can be found on showcars all over the United States. I made the rear feet about 1/2" thicker than the front feet so the case would slope down like a deuce coupe that has fat tires in the rear and narrow tires on the front.
It has been raining here everyday because of the hurricane near Florida so the lighting conditions to show off the reflections is very much lacking, i wanted to capture some blue skys in the black paint, but it is merely gray and nasty, i took these shots during a brief break in the rain today with only an old spray can for reflective reference (you can also see some of the gray siding of my house above the spray can reflection which is a good 12/14 feet from the position of the case.) Crisp long distance reflections like the siding is what you want to see, most paint, even poorly applied, will reflect a close object pretty well, but long distance reflections appear muddy and out of focus due to a rough surface). When i painted the Mechwarrior case the front bezel would sharply reflect houses and trees 50 yards away, thats what I try to aim for after a light wetsanding and polish. After I mount the grill assembly I hope to get a really nice set of sunny skys photos for the worklog.
I like it too much.
Also i like Battletech game world, so dou you have any pic of that Mechwarrior case, pls?
WOW sweet paint job. What airbrush gun do you own/use. Do you also have a paint gun? What brand/model is it? Also can you give me a site or some books that teach you to paint like you do! Your paint flames look professional. Keep up the good work!
*EDIT* I have no clue why I thought of this but, wouldn't that case be a sweet refridgator(sp?)
Looks really sharp mate, keep it up!
Fantastic work, amazing workmanship, brilliant paint.
Great design. It's all been said already, but needs reiterating.
Wow i like the case at all!
YEY! my first post
That looks awesome, i cant wait to see it ready, keep it high!
i really want to see some brighter pics, that does look VERY reflective, youve obviously got REAL skills!
id love a case like that, but would be far out of any price range i would ever have/get
OMFG!! thats one of the maddest and most well done mods i have ever seen i wish i had the skills to do stuff like that, nice work
