Stalker,
A good paint job is all in the prep. The results are coming out just fine. Looking at the side panel I thought maybe you had created a distressed look but closer examination shows it's the reflections from above. Keep up the good work and pictures !

Yes,that's reflection,because I buy spray for cars.

And thanks for the nice words.

I'll take this fan grill for my 120mm fan on the side.


I'll cut that holes on the left side,and mount it there with the fan.

How about you cut the side panel with a dremel tool (if you have) and install a clear acrylic glass and install some PC Neon Lights?

stalker excellent case painting! your case looks great. have you decided how your going to make your 120mm fan hole on top of your case? if i am correct your case was metal to begin with; you had scraped the entire case to bare metal and primed the case before the primary color. if you only did a single painting no primer or no clear coat ; due to handling and installing components you will chip your paint off. yes you can paint any part of your case and it wont affect your motherboard if done properly and carefully.

I was thinking about that,but plexiglass is expensive here,so I'll need almous 10 Euros just for that,and another 25/30 Euros for the neon light.

Hello quester,thanks for answering and glad you like the case.
I'll cut a hol here,and I'll put the grill there and the 120mm fan.

And for the mobo parts,I don't want to risk to paint them.

it looks like you will have a cool case. I discovered a sleeved led kit. its slim and can be installs anywhere. i have one on my haf 932 rebuilding and modding now. just attaching all the feeds and cables. nice job on the dimples for your hole cutting. your case is metal? if you are going to use a hole cutter at various mm; apply a small amount of cutting oil on the circle area .it makes for nice clean hole and reduces metal burs.

And yes,I expect good temps in the case.
