Some of you maybe remember that way back I painted an empty case white as a practise case.. then never used it because it had a few imperfections. Well, today I got modders itch and decided I had to do something about it. Besides, I was getting sick of case skins
I sanded down the rough parts on the already-painted white case, then cut the jewel hole, then gave the whole thing a few coats of Krylon Fusion (white). I also did the power/eject buttons white. I moved my tri-color jewel lighting into the new case top, but left all my old components in my old case. I guess you could say that I only switched case tops (and front panels), not whole cases. I moved the power/eject assembly into its new home as well.
Note: the pics all have bad lighting because of shitty fluorescent lights in the basement.
Oh yeah, I didn't paint the DVD bezel. Don't get mad at me!!
My beat-up case modding table
There's only one small imperfection and it's to the "south west" of the center of the jewel, right on that little slope.
Looks like the camera only caught the jewel LEDs when they were blue, but they cycle through green and red too.
