Default Re: Project Panzerbox Mod: Tribute to Wolfenstein

This is a great project that i have been following with great interest. I was interested in the panzer box when i first heard about it a couple of months ago but the mods going on with the Wolfenstein tribute have inspired me to do my own build.

My theme will go along with the gaming clan i belong to as well as pay a little tribute to our armed forces and some of the guys in our clan that serve right now.

My case won't show until This friday but i already ordered some red led 250mm fans and have eyed some nice parts from mnpctech.com and performance-pcs.com. My list of Mods already cost more than the case did,LOL!

Great work and keep up the updates!

Those handles look sick. I can't wait to see them on the case.

Instead of masking off 56 holes with tape and cutting them with exacto knife, to save time we made a sheet of 3/8" circle vinyl appliques last night to cover the cross drill holes before painting the top carry handle

When you said you were going to leave those holes unpainted i was thinking of all the time it was going to take to mask off those holes. Looks like you found a solution.

Yes, what do you think? I really like it.

I really like the contrast of aluminum with Matte Black.

Oh wow! Your work never ceases to amaze! I love the bare aluminum holes with the matte black. You're not a modder, you're an artist!

Flat black and billet aluminum always looks classy with muscle at the same time. I have a 1967 camaro project that is almost at the point of body work and paint and i have thought about painting the car flat black to go with my billet 18" wheels but painting a car flat black requires the body panels to be absolutely perfect and i am not sure that is something i am capable of.

On a side note i think you put the gun on the wrong side. Won't it be hard to get at in the back when it comes time to ping someone in the head with a BB at a lan party?

Keep up the great work and i cant wait to see what comes next.

Wow. Those handles only got better with paint. The matte black and aluminum look amazing together. That case is insane!
