    I didn't really mod it too much I just painted from the standard white


    Side panel sanded down to the metal

    The front painted(I left the 3.5" and the 5" bays along with the power and reset buttons unpainted because I'm thinking of painting them Fire Red)

    All the panels and front are primed, painted and clear coated with a "rattle" can paint. The paint job cost a whopping $4.03 (.97 primer, $1.94 of paint [2 cans] and $1.12 for clear coat). Ohh yeah I spend $5 for a wire drill brush. I spent more on the brush then the paint job :D


    Here is a pic of the internals of the case

    It screams mod me.
    Maybe add a real 120mm fan in the back? painted chassis? maybe a baybus.

    Looks nice.

    yup i agree, mod the hell out of it, some cable tidying and then add some 120mm fans.

    Nice paintjob for the price ;)

    where's the paint on the inside? Nice paint job, especially for that price. How'd you get that for cheap...

    Here in Canada for filler primer i ended up paying like 8 bucks a can... Plus a can of paint is like 10 - 20 bucks, dippending on brand and type and whatnot...

    I need a USB bay, there is no USB connection in the front of the case :( I would add 120mm to the back but there is a dip, it would take alot of cutting to fit a 120mm in there

    I'd like to add a 120mm or another 80mm to the front for more intake. there is a space between the top of the chassis and the top panel (there is a nice curve on the top panel) and I put all the unused wires up there (great place)

    Canada is really expensive for anything in a can, paint, canned air, primer


    the most a can of paint is here is $8, but that is for the paint that make stuff look chromed or like stone (that stuff is cool :D)
