    WHATS THE PLAN? WC, Painting, acrylics, all together?

    I suggest paint that case black, before you try anything else!

    Good job getting rid of the restriction in the front fan, see if there is room to put two 80mm fans for the exhaust.

    Save the painting for last (I always scratch up my paint by being impatient)

    Here is one I am doing for a neighbor kid..

    I only have space for one, but I plan on cutting that out too. Will try do something today and post more pics. As for the colour I'm looking at doing that in another two/three weeks.

    Air for now. Water will soon come in. Coming next is cleaning and sanding, then paint, I'm hoping by next week.

    Mod two:

    Cutting out the back fan space, did a rough workout on this one, was in a bit of a rush, will file this later on before the paint comes in.

    here are the pics:

    you are on the right track.....just do not forget to file down those rough edges and clean all surfaces that are to be painted!
