I'm still waiting for the Plater to finish the plating the intake grill before I can assemble everything.

anodized blue thumbscrews



The custom acrylic top panel. Just needs to be polished up a bit



2x 120mm fan holes beneath.








Comet was the best solution for removing scratches in the acrylic. And it's only .69 cents from Grocery store. The entire process took about 3 hours. I sat at the workbench doing this while I watched the cult movie (1980) on my laptop.

I first use the scouring side of the 3M "scotch brite" pad, then go back over the surface with the sponge for finishing




for deeper scoring, I used Comet with 400 grit wet/dry 3M automotive sandpaper

I think the white is cool. I'm sure once it all comes together it's going to look amazing.

This is looking pretty sweet!

How much do you guys charge to do just the inside of a case??

Im thinking of getting a coolermaster HAF 932 but i want the interior black. Nothing fancy just a decent looking finish cause i dont wanna mess with rattle cans.
