    Hello bit-guys :D
    Well, my english isn't the best, but i'll try the best I can to make you at least understand :rolleyes:

    Well, my first idea was to pick up my old Chieftec Dragon, which i thought was boring, because everybody has it, at least in Sweden...
    So I found some cool mesh and i began to fit it in the front...

    I know you guys love pictures so I'll let the pictures speak for them selves, enjoy them!

    Pieces that had to go to the recycle bin :)

    The standard grilles are gone...

    [​IMG]
    Made some holes and I began to prepare it for primer..

    The place where the heatcore will be, Rather ugly. but it works ;)

    Just tried some mesh in...

    [​IMG]
    I use chemical metal (plastic padding stuff) to get the mesh where it should be

    [​IMG]
    Hrmm, wonder if it would look good this way...

    I like what you're doing. One little thing... the mesh looks like it is a part you put in yourself later. Maybe try a bit more bondoing and you might make it look like you got it straight from the store like that. :)

    Well i have it in swedish on sweclockers.com if someone would be interested :)

    I tried til bondo it a little bit better, but the mesh has so tiny holes so its difficult to get it perfect.

    BTW, the mesh if from an old IKEA (yeah swedish!!!) recycle bin, whick was made of this mesh!

    Thanks for the response!

    :rock: Proud as they come, star.

    Good going, Clew. It's a natural mod for the case, you have to agree. :baby:
    I don't envy you with those tiny holes when you clean it up though. Starbuck3733t had a good idea of taping up an edge to keep most of his clean when he did something similar.

    Good luck with filling that gap too, it's really rewarding when you get it just right. :thumb:

    [Edit] Just found out Skitbra means "bloody brilliant". :D :lol:
