add fluorescent accent line frame or line on the case so it would glow in the dark

Thinking the same. would have to see the color combination for that. metalic gold with the green shade would be something new a bit brownish too. it would and can portrait the original alien from the movie.

Project update

sanded off 2 layers of pre-paint and the 3rd was almost gone but kept it for coat purpose.



P.S. Should i color the inner case as well? perhaps the signature black which every other case has???????

addition activity done today was this... an EVGA 9800GT with reference clocks. was lying around thinking of buying another one and doing an SLI or may be a gtx460 SSC and then this 9800gt would serve as PhysX card. Eventually just sanded and painted off something like this and im still after giving the rough look to it rather then neat.






moments away from the final thing.




to me i still want it to be more rough then its now.
