I dig, some good ideas. I've never used a dremel before, but I have a relatively steady hand (sort of, could be steadier, but I will learn) plus I could do it little by little (a bit time consuming) as to not make mistakes. I am considering ordering a Dremel right now, and waiting until next week and ordering my Maze4 GPU waterblock, or vice versa. Not sure yet.
I like the flames idea, be a good head start into the case cutting portion. It would be like your first basic cut, kind of like galloping before you run.
As for painting, I have to get REALLY good at that. My parents are very good at drawing, and I'm pretty good at staying in the lines, so I could have one of them draw me up something, I'm lousy at drawing. But I have tog et bettrer, and I will learn.
