Started getting some work done on my LED's, wanted to change it from the boring single color but wanted to keep with the Borderlands colors ( red, orangeand yellow ) in the build.
RGB strips make this a lot easier, when i wanted to use yellow i would solder the Green and Red Connections together. I even used Orange and Yellow wires to keep with the theme.
Red hard drive window will have red and fan grill will have yellow
Red LED's on the other side will be hidden inside the rocks and have a slight angle so they point up along the case to give it a glowing red effect.

Those are sick. Where are you going to plce these on the box? Faceplate? Looking good my man!
Not 100% sure now, was originaly looking at placing on the faceplate, but then i decided to make them a bit larger.
Bullet Shells, thought i would add 1 or 2 to the base to add to the look, got this image from the official Borderlands front page

If you havent already checked out the newest Borderlands 2 trailer click the link below.
Keeping the paint idea as a surprise for now, ill show you step by step as i go though.
Matte Black as the base
Lightly sanded back, ready for the next color over the top.
Picture resized a little weird the badges have come out rough.

looking good so far, i cant wait for the game to come out.
Yes it will be good, if its anything like the first its going to be amazing.
A big thank you to Chris.F at Gearbox Software, he has sent me out some presents.
Gearbox Software Shirt, Traiding Cards, Fridge Magnets, Stickers and a bag to fit it all in. Appreciate you helping me out with this build.
I have watched the Doomsday trailer over and over.
Found some nice designs for the case, i used the image below and wanted a paint effect to go along with the design.
Painted all parts in a Matte Black base
After the black base was dry, i sprayed a wet coat of silver and quickly laid over some plastic wrap over the top and placed it down and lifted it back up to reveal a nice finish, similar to the pattern in the trailer that i was trying to achieve. This is the first stage of the paint, more to come.

The more coats the darker it will get, weather hasnt been the best and painting during all this rain has made a less then perfect finish, it will be fixed, it looks worse in the pictures. Clear coat is still needed.
Working on the red glow on the side of the case.
