Hi, all this is a log of my progress soo far, i have been posting on another site but i found this one and figured i could post here. So I am going to copy and paste what i have so far from the other site.

I am going to be starting a new case mod.....correction first case mod ever for me and would like to post progess as well as recieve tips from all you pros. any input will be appreciated. just started painting today making the case all gloss black with neon blue accents to go with uv blue lighting here are some pics of the paint in progress





O and the second color i actually mixed my self because i couldnt find anything close to it. i just painted on a bottle to see how they would clash here it is. this will be the two theme colors



Just got the special blue paint i had mixed, i figured i would show you how it looked so far. all i have done is paint the inside of the cowling and edge the antec cutout to make i pop a little bit here are the pics.





here are some pics of my setup/situation

First up is the "Console of Glutony" freshly painted, this is where my key board and mouse go when im playing on the plasma.



I made this console using the science lab table tops made out of hard (i mean very hard) compressed plastic, the kind you would find in an biology classroom, or labratory



Next up is the button panel i edged around the button holes just like i did the antec logo. i still need to finish though (few rough edges)




So now i guess i can show where the "Console of Glutony" and my skeleton (still working on proper title for her) are going to call home



THe skeleton is going to replace this POS sitting in here. notice the led's above that light the enertainment center, might replace the led with a ccfl for he skelly



and here are some more random pics (for all those visual people like me)




plan to use the uv spray on all the parts as well

*EDIT* in case you were wondering the TV is a 58" Samsung pn58b650 along with a yamaha htr-5930 5.1 dts dd reciever, yes i watch a lot of movies (mkv's) from the pirate bay on there in full 720p DTS 5.1 @ 1509kbps, and yes it yes lovley. but it will be much better watching real blu-rays from he skelly once i get her done. O and games are run at 1080p watch the movies in 720p cuz i cant tell the difference because the mkv rippers on tpb have a very low bitrate, i guess other people dont like to dl 43Gig movies, me i dont mind.

Trying my hand at some cable managment tonight with limited success. I got some some wire heatshrink from autozone yesterday that matched my color almost perfectly so i figured i would give i a shot. worked ok for the smaller mobo connections bu couldnt get it around the blocks on the ends of the usb e-sata and others, so have to find alternitives for those. also painted the edges of the connections for he buton panel heres some pics.






here are some pics of the power and reset buttons with the wire heatshrink






and thats all i got for now, if you look close enough you can tell where i painted one of the wires, he he got a little carried away with the ligher! lol. that reminds me if any of you decide to do this.....use a heatgun!!! it will save your fingers and save you from painting the wires! loo

are you talking about my keyboard and mouse tray or are you talking about the entertainment center, because if you talking about the "Console of Gluttony i can help you and send you the print of all the pieces, but if your talking about the entertainment center you need to cough up $500 and give Welton USA a call

hey sorry guys, i have been posting my project in a few other forums and totally forgot to reply to this one!!!

anyway im gonna try to post all of my progress for you right now!!! its copy and paste so some of i might not make sense but i think you will get the gist.



JUNE 11TH 2010

got to sanding a bit on the paint to make it even, because it started to chip in one place. had to start all over ill show you why this is being such a pain



those little strips of red on top are the tiny peices of sandpaper that i use on the inside of the lettering

On a lighter note the power supply will be here tomorrow, but i have no idea abou the sleeving I have never had anyhing shipped from Europe before. trying o get the outlines redone this weekend, wish me luck

this is the third go at painting so its worse than suck, but had i done it right in the beginning i wouldnt have this problem......or anything to do right now....



JUNE 14TH 2010

Hey guys i dont exactaly have progress being made but i have some new parts i only took pics of the psu didnt figure you guys would want to see a regular old WD HDD







just trying some new camera and lighting techniques, let me know what you think.
Im currently putting the last coat of black on the fan cowling today so i can start with the blue tomorrow and should be seeing sleeving soon from Mr. Postman!!!



JUNE 14TH 2010


I actually just got done with a final sand on the fan cowling and a second rough sand on the left arch here is a pic



I will get the blue done on the inside of the cowling tomorrow most likely. that is going to be the moment of truth, because that is what matters most, the detail around the antec logo just has to be perfect!!




JUNE 16TH 2010

Tried to get the blue trim started tonight but my skeleton doesnt like my tape, it tried to eat it. every time i put this tape on the cowling it leaves an outline of where it was no matter how dry it is. so its off to home depot tomorrow for more tape.






JUNE 16TH 2010



got some goodies. Thanks Nils!!!








JUNE 18TH 2010


a little sleeving along with finishing the fan cowling paint. Didnt start the psu yet because i think i have a wild idea, but i have to fabricate it. so for now enjoy my pics even though they have horrible lighting









time will tell tomorrow if the delicate tape is the remedy.......pray for me will you???




JUNE 18TH 2010



i know how every one loves pics so heres a few, remeber the paint isnt finished yet, and the project never will be!!!










JUNE 21ST 2010

Tried to do some sleeving on the psu today, spent about two hours trying and didnt manage to get one pin removed from the pci cord. I am going to put neon blue heatshrink over the cables to make the sleeving look brighter......i will let the pictures speak for themselves

Sucessfully voided my warranty


and sucessfully broke my pin remover, i couldnt get those things out not even with staples, i think that these Corsair connectors are longer and have a more recessed inside




ok guys now your all caught up and I WONT LET IT HAPPEN AGAIN!!! let me know what you think

I'm very interested in this, I hate the Skeleton so I'm keen to see how it turns out. I'm mightily impressed with how professional your work (& worklog) is at the moment.

*High-five!*

its not an exact match but its pretty darn close, if i put a neon blue heatshrink under the sleeveing its perfect but it makes for some very big wires. so still undecided if i might do that. Heres a couple more pics you can see how well it matches.

i am i tried on one and it was really big, and if install a uv light in the cabnet and in the case im sure the colors will match

im going to finish the psu this weekend, and should get the rest of the parts next week and install everything, but will have a lot of minor mods to deal with after that like getting the last row of the 24 pin connector to loop from the bottom of the case over the front button/connection panel to the mobo. also the blu-ray drive will get a new front plate with the voodoo logo and leds. and many leds to replace.
