Hello again!! Today was the day i did the case and painted the rear i/o panel and the motherboard tray!!

So lets begin with the motherboard tray!!



Now with primer and ready to be painted orange the base colour!!



Next it is painted orange and ready for black colour!!



Here is painted black with the plastic bag effect!!



The mistake i made was that i used matt colour instead of gloss, so here i begin!!



Now let's paint orange and prep the tray for black colour and the plastic bag effect!!



Here are the tools!!



After few paints and minor adjustments here is the rear side of the motherboard tray finished!!



The project continues with the rear i/o!!

Same procedure applied in the outter side with a little extra!! Some paint splashes using orange colour!!

So now i proceed with the case amplification!! What is this all about is putting two metal angles on the bottome of the case to prevent it from bending and make it more stable!!

Here is a preliminary test of where the angles will be placed!!



The left one had to be adjusted in order to properly take its place under the case hole!! So what i did was basically cut off the upper hole and leaving it with three hole to be bolted on the case!!



Here are the measurements taken!!



After that i did a preliminary test with the face panel attached and how the case will act!! I must say the durability now is more than enough!!



Here is the case from the inner side!!



And a closer one!!



Of course before i attach the front face panel i cutted the excess parts of the screws!!



The Freeman requires on his computer....wheels!!



Today was a complete day so next what will be done is to attach the wheels, until then, Peace Brothers!!

Hello again!! Today was a big day as i did made the holes for the wheels, painted the case and glued the first two pieces of the logo to one side panel!!

So, first things first, the day doesn't begin without a cup of coffee so lets proceed!!

Here i took the already existing holes and widen them for the rivets to fit properly!!



Same thing happened to the rest of the feet!!



So, next i took the side panel i had it cure over night from fiberglass repair and did a slight repair also today!!

Furthermore, i glued the first two pieces of the game's logo where they should be placed on the side panel!!

So, i took the pieces and sanded them down a bit to roughen its surface for the fiberglass to stick better!!



Next i marked the area so i could sand it a bit to stick better!!



Then i made some fiberglass mixture with some silicon and thinned it with aceton so i can process it longer!!

Using that stick i spreaded the fiberglass where it should be placed and sticked the logos!!



It doesn't matter if the liquid exceeds the drawing as it will be painted so it will match the front panel and the inside!! The crackle effect will remain in some areas to show that both painting techniques are used!! The post will continue next!!

The post continues!!

So, here now lets paint it black!! Here is the cause for that effect!! I apologize for the poor quality photo, i couldn't have that time very adequate lighting!!



Here is the inner bottom side painted with the plastic bag effect!!



Then, the rest of the case!!



I thought then to add some extra effect on it and i decided to add some paint splashes!!



And bottom side!!



Final picture for today!! I must say i am quite ecstatic with the result, i wouldn't expect to get that beautiful!! :D:D



So, that is all for today, more will come tomorrow with the hardware installation and see if everything goes as they should be working!! Until then, Peace Brothers!!
