    as in your last mod, i see you throwing a lot of techniques toghether in a slightly onorthodox way, and as in your last mod, i had some doubts about the final result... but seeing that door, i do not doubt you anymore... forgive this lonely soul his heresy :p

    One more update for you guys! This is something I did sometime ago but I wanted to finish the painting to post the process.

    After sanding the case parts it was time for the paint process. I created a small S with wire to hang the pieces.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here is the primer. (4 layers)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here I let them rest for 1 and a half week before the gloss black.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After that period of curing time, I started painting the parts (not all of them)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Curing time again!!! 2 weeks this time!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And after the 2 weeks some wet sanding and paint again! Finished pictures later on the assembly process.

    [​IMG]

    And here are some random shots with the work I did on various parts of the case (more later)

    Here is the mobo tray which I isolated to apply isopon 40 to cover some holes and imperfections of the case.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The trickiest part of this case is the back i/o plate and the top cabin. Here is the backplate not finished yet cause as you will see on a different update I faced a lot of problems!

    Here I take some measures for the aluminum part

    Filing for perfection!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here I remove the rivets to slide the aluminum piece inside the 2 steel parts

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So thats it for now, I work on various things the same time so excuse me if I got out of schedule!

    Here is the creation of the XSPC dyal bay cover. I will use 5mm pine wood.
    I found a design of a tribal wolf which I liked and I decided to use it among with the word
    "wolf" in Cherokee language,

    Here is the simple drawing:

    [​IMG]

    After cutting the wood, pyrography takes place again!

    [​IMG]

    And here are the various stages of it

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I used the drill to create some pivot holes to cut the letters.

    [​IMG]

    And using these various dremel bits and files I brought this final result which with the UV red liquid and the UV led they will be illuminated.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Drilling the attachment holes.

    [​IMG]

    Details with red paint and rubbing brown powder paint to give a darker color to wood.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And some final shots!

    [​IMG]

    Till next time guys, thanks for watching and commenting!! :)

    I like that Wolf for couple of reasons :p
    1. It looks COOL
    2. It's my HS Mascot (Even though I hate my High School, I still like Wolfes:p)

    Thanks brother RuSGaMeR !!! I love wolves too and I have one on my left arm howling on the edge of a mountain! Wolves are a symbol of intelligence and leadership and also monarchy ! :)

    Thanks my islander friend and lol yes it looks like G W even if its Cherokee language!
    Man you should start working and believe me you might discover a hidden talent or at least
    its something that you would like to do, it doesnt matter if its not the best. Its the effort that counts!!
