    wasnt its ass facing down main street and the town said change it so tech actualy figured out exactly wich way faced A&M and placed the ass facing it. I might be wrong on that, that is just what I have been told.

    I'm not sure about all that. Could be true, may not be...who knows? It would indeed face down main street (actually, it's Broadway Ave.) if it truly was riding into the sunset, because downtown Lubbock is due East of the statue. Broadway is the main entrance to the campus, so the first thing visitors would see would be the horse's rear. Of course, the whole town smells like cow manure when the wind blows in (which is just about every other day), so greeting visitors with a horse's arse would only be too appropriate.

    Here is what I found on the Texas Tech website. Looks like there may some bit of truth to the rumor :hehe:

    Oh the statue is supposed to be showing its @ss to college station (A&M). I think it's funny that Tech has no rival so they try to steal our [UT's] rival [A&M]. ya'll can have......OSU...or Baylor...

    anyways good luck w/ the case even tho I have a strong embitterment against Tech I can't hate another modder :D

    Well it is time for an overdue update. For the most part the case is done, still have some touch up work to do in areas but all in all it done.

    After putting on the clear coat me and enigma polished the hell out of it. Like I said we wernt going for a mirrored paint job, just a nice smooth finish.

    Also painted the big T on there as well as the small t with a brush on frost paint (they didnt have my spray on kind, every other color but red :mad: )
    [​IMG]

    Then did alittle polishing on the front as well
    [​IMG]

    Then wired up the leds for the front as well as the power and hdd (they are a duller red but not on in any of the pics)

    And a shot with the flash off.

    And then had to put it all together just to see how it looks.

    I love it! Great job on that case. :hip:
    But as Acid Burn said above - you gotta paint the cd/dvd drives black/red.

    since we are using parts out of our sisters old comp (burner, dvd, and floppy) we cant paint them just yet... and we are using those to be a place holder for now.

    and for not going for a mirror finish, i think we got it pretty damn good...

    the fade kinda screws all hope for a mirror finish as you have to put it on in its own coat, but i think we achieved a very nice high gloss paint job with all the polishing we did on the clear coat.

    yeah i forgot to say that those arnt the drives that are going in it. enigma was using the frame to put together a dsd router. The drives are going to be the same ones that are in her pc right now, I am waiting till she gets back into town to paint those drives. I just wanted to throw the front and sides on the frame to see how they look together. Trust me The drives will not stay that nasty color, I wouldnt spend this much time on a case to have the drives look like crap :thumb:

    You should also paint the inside edge where the front plate and the side come together... maybe it's just reflection from the flash, but I thought I saw unpainted metal under there (this shot).

    The case isnt screwed into place. I just slid the case on the frame to see how it was going to look. When everything is screwed down tight there is not gap. It was late last night when i took the pics and I was way to lazy to actualy screw everything in.
