    Hey Ya it's time for paintin' :D goshh many of hours spent on putting primer, sanding with water paper 1000 -> 2000
    painting it again and again .. and now is time for final black coat.
    After this I will show Ya Red coat on inside part of sides and black otside :)

    First one is smth that i forgot to show U. It's picture made inside the case. This what u see is PSU and flames on TOP side.

    this shows custom PSU cables that i wanted them to be black and red ... Red for 12V and black for 5V.(Ended with black isolation tube)
    card reader and psu connection cable (it what white before when i foud it in my scrap:D)
    [​IMG]

    Now u can show half work with black ... normal view :p everything was painted outside building on free air.
    [​IMG]

    as U can imagine it went smooth but paint looked horrible so again sanding:grr:
    [​IMG]

    then ... at last !!
    [​IMG]

    in mean time i started to modify DVD so i could hide opening somewhere under the case (sorry no pictures of it only cable:/)
    [​IMG]

    here are sanded parts of side and top ready for puting primer coat
    (lost image somewhere in the internet)

    Primer and bit of red colour from painting other side
    [​IMG]

    finally RED (isn;t this beutifull? :hip:)
    [​IMG]

    and now Dark side of it the black side :naughty:

    Nice mod so far, like the clean PSU recable. But how in hell did you manage to cut yourself soo badly before you noticed?

    when you add the long time work in almost 30C degree, beeing badly pissed on someone after not nice phone call and speed of grinder you will notice that it can be done without notice :D

    But mainly it's becouse when you cut like this you damage your nerws by strong heat (cut and burn at the same time) and your brain is unable to get the info about pain.

    I see some muscle pulp under there. Good and deep. Some people with weak stomachs may not like that picture. A little superglue should keep that closed up for a while. Mod looks good, btw.

    Hell, man! I came back thinking the gore was over. Every time I see a pic like that I flash back to when I cut my pinky lengthwise.
    Nice paintjob. Too bad about the green mobo.

    Very clean work there, brother. I've had one or two of those Chieftec chassis before. They're flexible for modding. Not to mention a classic. Mod on! :rock:

    chieftec chasis is good ... except the thick side panels :D hard to cut but good for freaakyy patterns. Second one is CompaQ Proliant 1500 server Case .. more to do with it for example making it ATX compatible but that's the modding :) btw THX E.E.L Ambiense for comment :)

    Excellent work, the PC just screams for water or Phase change, but the case itself is excellent, the cuts are very clean and stand out.
