    Hey guys. a Customer wanted a rather "Conservative" mod done by us ( compared to the extremes us modders like to go) based on his love for Golf.
    We decided to go with a low end chassis. He only uses it to check gold and e-mail. So the hardware is rather modest, and the case we chose was this:

    So we went from their and started, well to be honest, my first THEME mod. The Theme is GOLF of all things lol. Something I knew nothing about.
    I started by replacing the button with a piece of his favorite kind of golf balls.

    that sucked trying to cut that off straight.

    [​IMG]
    I basically just glued it over the top of the existing button. But there is a little light behind it so it lights it up quite well.

    As you can see on the inside (as I was gluing down the top parts) the case is rather simple. But again, that's more than we needed for this.

    Then we procured some actual artificial putting green. So I cut it out for the top of the case.

    I then cut a hole for the cup, and even made an awesome sand trap!

    I found an old ... driver? what ever it is, golf club. and cut the handle off.

    The owner also gave me some personal ibjects from his golfing excursions, that I wanted to display.

    so now the front looks like this

    Oh yeah, forgot to mention I added the green on front too. Like it?

    Then, since I have a lot of balls (i can't help but chuckle like a 12 year old)
    I added them for FEET TOO!
    [​IMG]
    again cutting those was miserable, tried doing it with a Dremel... the melting plastic gave me a 3rd degree burn. Don't try this at home lol
    but I eventually got'em

    So that's it for now guys, we still have work to do on the sides. have some fun ideas for that too.

    lol yeah. Unfortunately I am up here in Minnesota for 2 more months. The companies shop is back in Georgia where we're going in February. So I had to make due with a hacksaw.

    I wonder if instead of cutting the golf balls, you could try sanding them with electric sander? Just a thought, hilarious theme too btw, thanx for the post, cant wait to see more!
