i'm.... um less than halfway done... i've managed to accumulate all the materials, rip apart the case, and prime everything, but i'm kinda procrastinating on it... :/ it won't take too long once i get started on phase two.

one month to go, I think. If phase 2 takes 1 week then phase 3 & 4 will leave you one week to assemble your work log.
Don't give up on us!

Don't worry too much about the time, if it goes like my mods, it sits and sits, and then I do the last 90% in a day. Inspiration takes the longest.

inspiration took a week, getting supplies took 2. Crafting will take 2 days. It's the procrastinating that takes the longest. And I've been making the work log as I go.

For me, waiting for the flea market vendors to get me the bits and pieces takes the longest. I tend to use some strange parts in my more "epic" mods. Usually, you find these with the most awful vendors on the web, in extremely limited quantities. A week after they have your money, they begin to think about shipping your stuff.

I have no idea what you guys are talking about....
I've been painting, cutting, glueing, and all that every morning at 6am.
Guess I'll be the only on in the competition.

So, hows the mods progressing?
Did anyone get some work done over the weekend?
I'm pretty much done painting and am trying to decide if I want a computer in this case....
I have some P4/478-pin motherboard/AGP card hardware in another case, but it may be a lot of work to swap cases. My new mod will seem plain without some parts inside.

The weekend is my work week. That's why it seems that I have no job.

I'm finished. Just a few more pictures. I can't wait to post the pictures & work log after the contest is over.
Who's still left in the contest?

Well, not my best work when you compare it to my Dungeon Case, but I'm happy with the results when I spent a month working on it.
I can't wait to see how everyone else's case come out.

Nobody replied about who is still left in this competition.
