This was my very first mod. I worked it and reworked it, as i figured out what i wanted to do and the best was to do it. I started with an old gateway case i picked up with a p3 system for about $30.
After cutting up the side panel and making some changes to the cage, i was ready to paint. I knew i wanted to go red and black so i sprayed the cage with a flat black.
Sanded and ready for another coat.
After a lot of masking, taping, spraying, sanding, ect. The panels are almost ready.
As panels went through this process i begin to wire up the feet. Four super bright red leds.
The panels finished
The motherboard and drive cage.
I keep the stock heat sink, but modified it and replaced its fan with a 120mm one.
Sprayed the mouse.
Dvd drive door
Built a front panel intake fan with red leds
The red neon tube has a user control module witch needed to be changed so that it would fit in a floppy dive slot.
