but i need to sand it first.
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.
thank you clocker for youre comment.. but i dont know what a straightedge is .. sorry. i need a little more explanation..
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?
haha .. i do get youre point.. haha "Sikker nemlig det er fik en hvid begynderbog.." dosen't mean anything its just nonsense in danish haha ..
but n1 mate.. you do have a point there but i think i use Clocker's good idea..
and thanks to Stuey to teach me what straightedge is .. heh
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.
heheh .. yeah thats right .. but thanks for the help.. here is a little bit of it translated direct to english: "Sure precisely it are get a white beginner-book on top that hole between that judgement-committee.." haha its nonsense.. hehe
Time for some real paint.
Yeah. Update ..
Time for some paint..
Soooo... here it is:
..comment would be nice
Wow... excellent. What you use to paint? Aero graph or spray?
Maybe you add some photo of those corners? How it look?
Quite a difference.
Still seeing some white in the panel gap though, did you paint it assembled?
im using something like this:
.. i have only paintet 1 out of 3 layers.. some places you can see a little bit through.. but im posting more detailed pictures after next layer..
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 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
Thank you guys..
Yes i do paint the dvd the same color.. and i have nice ac-ryan fans in the plexi-window ..
The method i'm using was the method that seems most nice to me.. so thats why..
and yes i am painting it assembled (in my sisters play-house ..hehehe )
by the way. i'm posting some new images soon.. cuz i've just painted the second layer
Yeah new update !! [Second layer of paint] and it look just perfect
So here it is:
^^i like it .. and allso the way the newspaper reflects in the paint uhh just sweeet ^^
but it still need one layer.. and it can only get better jubii i'm happy
..and remember it needs a dvd-rom (paintet) and a plexiglass window to finish the look..
heh.. do anyone have a little thing to say? hehe
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.
