    Ah.

    I think block sanding will work.
    Start with the case body and use the longest block of wood you can comfortably maneuver with sandpaper wrapped around it.
    Use a straightedge to get those two edges (top and front) as straight as possible.

    Then fit the sidepanel to those two edges.

    A ruler is sometimes makes a good straightedge. Then there's also "framing squares" and the such. Basically, any slightly thick straight metallic bar can be used as a straightedge.

    Surely as it's got a white primer on the gap between the panels is visable, once you have painted it black it won't be as visable?

    Sikker nemlig det er fik en hvid begynderbog oven på den hul imellem den bedømmelseskomite er påtegning , når først du har malet sig neger sig vil ikke være nemlig påtegning?

    Thought i help you understand abit better, lol though these online translator are good at converting words i doubt they can convert them with accuracy when full sentences are being used, unless you write like a phd english professor.

    Wow... excellent. What you use to paint? Aero graph or spray?

    Quite a difference.

    aww awesome dude! Coming along nicely and I'm liking the colour. I must say, I have never seen anyone on here use that method to paint a case before, but it appears to be effective. Keep up the good work.

    That is an awesome color & all the curves of the case look excellent :rock: the window, all the rounded edges of the case, everything looks hot! You are gonna paint the dvd the same color right?
    Are you gonna use orange leds to light it up? I hope so, even make the pc power, hdd & dvd activity leds orange :D

    Well, at some point you're going to have to remove the sidepanel and paint the gap...white is still visible in a few places.

    Other than that it's hard to say.
    Need some pics from different angles and with the hardware installed.
