Yes, it's taped

Lots of things have happened between updating this project, first off, a big Congrats to Nate! (CustomPCMax) the happy father of twins, a boy and girl!

I'm picking up the camouflage Psyko Audio headset from Brad today. Yippee!

Next up for the german wwII camo paint, this 15" HD/TV LCD, small, but it's all I have available.. Hey, add a handle and it's a nice mate to our panzerbox. I'll have to look into the handle option.

Glad you like it! Thanks for commenting. I added fake bullet holes to the window today..lol



Using 3/8 drill bit.





To create spiderweb cracks, I etched the surface of the window with a Dremel and these engraving bits

Glad you liked them!

I heard back from James at PsykoAudio, he suggested turning off the cmss settings in the X-fi software, and turn on EAX. I will check into these setting later today.

Updating the rear 120mm exhaust fan with the new Overkill "Sniper" grill, I have Silver version, but you can get Black anodized Overkill Grills from Performance-PCs

The NZXT Panzerbox wide chassis is ideal canidate for the Overkill grill. Most cases may require major modification to your chassis and side panel to clear 5.5" wide grill if mounted over the rear exhaust.



I use SEM brand Self Etching primer to paint the bare aluminum grill Matte Black. This paint is made for bare metal surfaces. You need to wear a filtered respirator mask and apply in well ventilated room. It's very TOXIC when it's airborne.






The billet Targeted grill looks cool, but a bit flat looking in comparison



POW! what a difference.
