    Today i decided to set my case on fire.:D

    Took the left side panel and masked it.
    Then drew the flames. Cut it with a exacto blade and peeled awy the tape.
    Roughed up the surface a bit with with a scotch pad and now the first layer is drying.
    When it's dry i will very lightly sand it down and give it the second coat.

    I will post some more when the panel is dry.

    Ooh nice, I was thinking about doing flames too, I'd like blue airbrush though. Was thinking about looking around to get it done professionally if the price is right lol.

    After 2 coats. Let it dry overnight then sand a bit to remove some spots and then again two light coats. Then wet sand and polish.:)

    Well the panel is dry and i removed the tape.

    I will let it dry out for a few more days before polishing it some more. I think it came out very nice.:) Btw the white stuff is auto wax.:D

    Dude...Sweet! Man that is a slick paint job. Anytime I see flames it's the usual same boring design but yours is a nice refresh :D

    Very nice, it's a really good case, I had one a while ago. I bought an A17B which was actually a worse case.

    Thinking about all the mods I could have done makes me want to kick myself for buying the A17B.

    Congrats man! That looks stunning!
    Iv been wanting to do a flame design to my case to match the flames on the 2900XT cooler. Were thinking of silver flames with red outline around them.

    Love the carbon on your case too!

    Has nothing to do with the flames but if you want to let you aluminum case shine just use Brasso.
    It works like a charm.
