    Pirates Chest

    I haven't gotten to mod anything of my own in awhile. I know I asked you guys a while ago about a chest, that idea is still on hold this is just a small mod.

    I bought a external HDD enclosure, a Kingwin SATA/USB with fan.
    Seen here: http://www.xoxide.com/kingwin-jet-esata-enclosure.html

    I added a extra hole for air to get in and am going to make a few more for air to get out.


    Here is a shot of where one end of the fan opens.



    Now I want your opinion, I'm calling it the Pirate Chest (because lets face it its going to be full of pirated items :spy.

    Do I paint it gold and add fake jewels to the outside or keep it black and paint a Jolly Roger on the side?

    I also thought about getting some wood grain vinyl and making it look like a wood chest or modern pirate with carbon fiber vinyl.

    I like the idea of a wooden chest and make it look old and worn and then you can put some gold coins and jewels around it and make a cover with hinges and then have some jewels and coins inside of the cover. Happy Modding to ya.

    Wood sounds good, but I don't know about jewels. Unless you're talking about glass jewels; they would work okay. The "space pirate" thing with carbon fiber sounds cool, but just a jolly rogers seems too simple.

    I have this on other sites. The consensus is make it in a wooden chest. I think I'm going to take the guts out and install them in a hand made chest.

    This was suggested also


    I may do something similar.

    Word yo're looking for is consensus, conscience is like knowing right from wrong...
    Mega Blocks has a fancy pirates chest for cheap (I used to work at Toys R Us). You could bondo the parts you don't like and spookify as necessary.

    Pirates Chest

    That's on the order I was talking about but my idea was more on the order of a old pirates chest but that one looks cool also. Good luck on what ever you do. Happy Modding to ya.
