    I saw an empty space where the "Aluminium" effect spray should have been so that's why I went for the chrome. The chrome matches the rheo knobs so it looks good too.

    Sweet - one of the few times I've seen a photo of an alu case doing it justice :):) Very nicely done dood......

    Just one thing though - PLEASE paint the headphone volume wheel, so many ppl miss it!!! I painted mine black and it finished off the drive a treat ;)

    Painting the volume control would be a major pain in the ass! The whole front panel came off so easy and it looks fine so - OI! NO!

    Easy fella.......:)

    To be fair on yours it looks fine - its just when someone does like a red drive or something it looks really odd thats all, guess my main gripe is with pioneer for making the jack socket and wheel different colours really!!

    Just used a bit of games workshop chaos black before I reattached the fascia...........:)....very simple.

    nice work m8, but what have you done to the drive-LEDs? looks like you spraypainted them too (or the transparent covers that is)?

    I sprayed 3 of my cd roms black a week ago, and neglected to mask the clear plastic where the led's shine through...I sort of scratched the paint off after wards but it's a bad idea not to mask them....trouble is they're so small it's so hard to cover the plastic and not the surrounding areas...thought I might try using blue tak next time

    it's a bad idea to mask them either...

    best way is to use a sharp knife to cut the molded part off where the plastic of the front-part goes through the clear part and pull the clear part off... mostly it still holds afterwards and if not just attach a tiny drop of glue to the two pins that hold it in place.
