Continued

my auto teacher suggested that a plasma cutter be used for the cutting, but my new dremel be used to trim and tidy it. I'm gonna put a clear peice of plastic in behind it, to let the light of my 2 blue LED fans shine through. For those who don't know that's a Klingon Empire symbol

Well, if I'd've known you had access to a plasma cutter, of COURSE I'd've suggested it.

Seriously though, nice work. I look forward to seeing the rest of it when you get done.

They seem sorta sort for wires...
I normally shove wires in the extra open drive bay slots and try to keep them away from the processor/ram sticks. Have you tried moving them at all perhaps down to the floor of the case and back up?

Krylon Black Primer followed with Krylon Pine Green from the Home Decor section.


The Pine can be found on the link below (depending on your monitors settings it may be to dark or not dark enough).
http://www.krylon.com/main/color_pro...0Latex%20Spray

http://www.krylon.com/main/product_t...roduct_details

Is the Case Steel or Aluminum?

If you can find some... PPG PoloGreen with the gold Metal Flake looks good as well (no one said anything about inexpensive and PPG is anything but inexpensive).
