The 3D logo "Flag" came to me after a first attempt at simply painting on the logo, and it was just bland. Flannel top was always something I wanted to incorporate. MB530p glass replacement - 7hrs I wanted to keep the case as cosmetically stock as possible on the exterior, with the full focus on the internals. Originally I had planned to do the entire front, but 4 hours in, my back was in such agony from being hunched over the saw, I cut a leaf in the bottom right and cleaned it up. Off to paint. The chop chop bits - 6hrs Chop it up, make it fit. Chop it more, paint it! Fitment was one thing I didnt take into consideration with the MB530P. I wanted perfomance, not just appearance! A day of Color - 12hrs So many parts to paint, such un-opportune times to paint. Anyone whos ever tried to paint when its 35c+ out will know, its brutal Your paint will dry before it has a chance to hit the mating surface, and too close will cause big time runs. Painting had to be done first thing in the morning while it was a cool 20c and left to bake outside all day long. And at last, the final stages. - 20hrs After taking a break for LTX19, I came back to work on making my cables, start on some tubes that I had to make while the case was still apart, get to riveting the case all back together, and assembly. I spent the better part of every free moment I had trying to get this looking good. I am not the best at bending tubes freehand(only an insert) But I think it worked out well
