    Oh my god! Do I see some dremel-skills or what? I really like this one a lot! Those bumps look awesome with and even without leds, keep goin' mate! And there's nothing wrong in being 17, I hope, 'cause I'm still 16 ;-)

    Hey Craig, if you ever need any of my sweet hacking skills or real tools(i.e. drillpress, ban saw, table saw, sanders...) let me know. Nice dremel work.

    Decisions Decisions!

    Ok, hey everyone. Smal lil update out here in wonderful San Jose!

    Time to start making some more decisions about this case, and this is gonna be a big one..... paint time. Enough talk, on to pictures!

    This would be the main color pallet that i came up with, and NO that is not black in the 6th spot, it was actually called "true blue" and if you look closely it does have blue.....

    Heres a different angle
    [​IMG]

    I think I have prolly rounded it down to either 1 or 2 so here are some different view of just those:

    Now, keep in mind these are just the paint it's self, i haven't polished or finished any of it, just want to get the color first. And also, paint 1 is just a flat single color while paint 2 has an entire metallic finish that changes in the light.

    Now for some other random pics! These are some I just took when i applied some primer to the bumps to get em ready :D

    The primer

    To paint these lil buggers i set them on top of the bases i cut them off of

    After a quick sanding, it makes quite a difference even though this is sandable primer and has a lot of texture
    [​IMG]

    And thats just about it for this update!
    My leds should be here when I get back home wednesday and i can get started with those. So, i would greatly appreciate your input on color choices!
    Thanks :dremel:

    metallic #2 gets my vote, my second choice would be #5 cuz it seems "fun"

    you should test em out with the blue LEDs and see what you think (i would think the metallic would look badass with those LEDs)

    If you'd like to keep it as close as possible to the original bottle, definitly #1.
    #2 looks better though.
