Ok this is a customers job I am doing and they pretty much want their case to look like my case but with green lights and fans. Now I figured I would use this as an example and also as a way for me to express my feelings towards case mods.

Rule #1: SAND YOUR CUTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is so very important. I see so many people on here making nice mods but dont bother sanding. That is the MOST important part of the mod. Ugly cuts kill the look. Every modder wants to hear that their case is a sexy bitch. Ugly cuts arent sexy.

This person does not want their case painted so it was very important that there was no SLIPPAGE!!! Slipping is never good in any circumstance.

Here is the work in progress. Notice how nice the back of the case looks. Yes you should sand both sides of the case. You want perfection!

Also, notice how I left room to mount my windows. You dont want to cut to close to the air holes nor do you want to cut too close to the front of the case or you wont be able to mount your windows properly.

Awesome cuts. And nice pics, shame that it's hard to see exactly how smooth they are because of jpeg compresion crapping them up...

Anyway, nice one smile.gif A well thought out set of cuts.

I decided to paint the case. Here is what an experienced painter can do with good ol Krylon Fusion paint cans lol. I used my wifes 360 to compare the colors.
