    Note: Sorry if they're slightly too big, but they're only a few pixels over 800x600

    Seeing as the only mod I've ever done to this current case is install a naff baybus (and expensive) from PCmods.com:

    I got an idea one night, and began planning a new mod during a drinking sesh:

    [​IMG]
    (I'm on the right, doing what I do best :D)

    So, here's the subject:

    Look, she's all naked!:

    I haven't done a mod in a while, so I decided just to start with cutting a design out of the sidepanel. Here's a shot, sorta showing one of the side panels, although I won't be working on the right-hand one ;):

    [​IMG]

    You will notice that this particular case has semi-translucent plastic panels on top of the aluminium; so what I plan to do is just use the plastic as a protective window and hopefully, it'll create a nice effect when I illuminate the design with a CCFL neon :).

    So, off with the plastic panels, and on with the design I want! I wanted to go with something simple to start with, but I elaborated and "borrowed" the Starcraft font :D :

    [​IMG]

    And here it is, a little closer, but dipstick here forgot to turn on the camera's macro mode! :duh: :

    [​IMG]

    I couldn't *quite* get the curve right on the "C", and the bottom of the "B", but I'll probably re-do both of those before I actually cut it.

    That's it for now, I'm going to attempt to start cutting it out tonight, so expect more pics in the next few days!

    And on a totally random note, here's a photo of my mate, pretending to be big and hard infront of a rather feroucious barbeque ;) (Remember kids! Don't try this at home, we're trained idiots! :D):

    EDIT: fixed pics...again...and removed clickabubble links

    Whoa! Holy Undead thread Batman!!

    Sorry, I've not been around in a looooong time (as you may probably guess); if I ever get chance I'll update all the photos, 'cos I actually finished this ages ago... besides, it was only the initials "BLC" cut into the side of my case in a starcraft-style typeface, nothing special....

    I think I was pretty drunk when I posted the idea, because it doesn't seem all that worthy of the server space in hind sight.....

    /me silently wonders why we don't enable thread pruning... or at least the "don't show threads older than..." option...
    /me thinks it wasn't so silent :rock:

    Why does this thread keep popping up as replied to in my inbox?

    First post = July 2003.
    Last post before today = August 2004.

    It's fairly safe to assume that this is a dead thread, despite the fact that I sold that box over 3 months ago!

    Edit: Can a kindly mod please close this thread? :)
