    hi,

    This is my first mod the case that I am using for it is Thermaltake Xaser 3 V1000D. In the begin it looked like this:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then I made a bigger window in the left panel it looked like this, and in the right panel I made a tribal cut ( still need some work ):

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Than I made in the top of my case 2x80mm blowholes, but because of the holes that where already there I made a home made fan grill (still need to be painted ):

    [​IMG]

    pic of the top with the holes:

    [​IMG]

    And at last I made a dubbel needles blowhole in the front of the case ( need to be painted again ):

    [​IMG]

    Now I am filling up the holes with polyester so I can paint everything, the top en the bodem of the case with stuff on it ( waiting now until it’s dry ):

    [​IMG]

    Than I can start painting al the panels en the frame. There will be maybe an update today from the new painted blowholes and fan grill.

    Here are som pics of the naked frame:

    love th top blow hole, but over all the tribal theme is pretty comon....but still one of my favorites.

    check out 'badass blowhole 2' and have a look at his case, some very effective tribale modding...my case which i recently finished also runs on a ribal theme, will be upping the rpoject log soon

    keep it up :)

    The top blow hole is sweet, only one thing that should have been done differently. I'm talking about the screws. I should have done those invisible (glueing them to the bottom side of the top panel).

    Looks sweet :)

    a question though ==>
    ( kom jij naar Fom ? Want we hebben daar een paar mooie mods nodig om het casemod niveau omhoog te houden, en blijkbaar zijn er meer prachtige belgische mods dan verwacht :) )

    ( for those who can't read it, I asked if he's going to a upcommin' LAN-event for 900 attendees where I'm the judge for the casemodcompo :p )

    Keep on the good work :)

    !!! update !!!

    My little army

    [​IMG]

    Then I have made the bottom plate flat again:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then the rest of the day I was painting:

    the front ( 2 times ), the top plate ( dubbel sides + wet sanding ), the frame ( 2 times ) it looks like I have done not much but it talked all the day

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    A total shot how it looks now:

    [​IMG]

    i still need to make:

    - another fangrill for the dubbel fans at the back of the case
    - painting left-, bothem-, right pannel, the HD rack
    - finish the needles blowhole and the front
    - finish the tribal cutout in the right panel
    - sleeving some fans ( still waiting wen it commes with the mail :miffed: )

    As you can see I don't make pics wen I am painting or when I am doing other stuff, I only make pics when the part is finish ( sorry )

    all comment welcome

    Wow really nice work man i love how yu changed the front panel so much i think this is one of the best thermaltakes mods for that case. I hate the way the front looks origanally.

    This is awsome!

    :)

    I was looking for a V1000C (I might be getting one second hand) mod, but while looking for it I saw the name 'Tribal Mod'. I had a look and what do I see?

    A V1000D :D

    Keep up the good work man :thumb:
