    Hi all.

    Project Sofia came to light one day when I was watching Sofia The First on tv with my 4 year old daughter.
    One of those grab a coffee and chill for 5 minute times.
    I was already in talks with Antec uk on a project,myself and my fiancée own a few antec cases.media centre and my personal build.
    Whilst watching the kids show with my daughter,the colour theme and build came to life.
    Something small,clean lines,elegant, like Sofia in the tv show,and it had to have a wow factor on the colour scheme.
    So I passed my plans on to Antec,and the green light was given.

    I can paint,I done my bitfenix zx9r build,that had flake in the lacquer.
    But this I'm not 100% confident painting.
    The inside will be the pearl white,never laid down a pearl before.
    So my paint guru kevin,he paints custom chopper.so this job is down to him.

    Cheers dude.
    I've never done a build with purple in it.
    So hoping it all ties in well
    It should sparkle like a diamond in a goats ass when finished

    I don't think I've ever seen those words used together in the same sentence in that way before...

    I do love that purple though, and as someone else who has had to watch the Sofia shows with his daughter: looking forward to the end result. :thumb:

    SOFIA UPDATE:-

    Well Sofia is ready for paint,just waiting on the paint from House Of Kolor.
    Myself and my lady done some testing with the pump and res yesterday,and both of us were mesmerised by the fluid running through the #alphacool plexi pump block.
    So we put our heads together and thought why not show the top of the block off.
    A little measuring and dremmel action,and it was done.
    I will raise the block by 24mm,this will give me the affect I want.
    Why hide something away that looks cool and adds more colour to the finished build.
    All measurements are done for the acrylic work,and all fits perfectly like a glove.

    I see, so not really a build for a 4-year-old girl. :lol: I thought you were trying to turn her into a gearhead so you could watch car shows with her instead.

    Looks good man. I do like that case, but the price is a bitter pill to swallow. I didn't think it would cost anywhere close to what it does :(

    Hi all
    Sorry the updates have been thin on the ground.
    It's taken a while to get the case to paint,well for them to fit it in their busy schedules.
    A lot of prep went into getting all the parts to the perfection that John wanted.
    But today we finally got the base coats down on the chassis and exterior panels.and on the Alphacool radiator casings.
    The chassis has had a white base coat,next is the candy white and then a clear high gloss show lacquer.
    The exterior panels have had the custom mixed purple base coat,next it's the custom purple candy.then it's the high gloss show lacquer with a little metal flake.
    Here's a few pictures
