Ok I've started a case mod, but hopefully I'll actually finish this one, because it's already half done, as opposed to my build. I'll probably take the ITX board from it anyway, so there's not much point continuing it (maybe for fun once I've finished this).
I'm modding the case of a PowerMac G3! My friend bought it from someone near him ages ago, and it's suffered some damage . I doubt I'll be able to fix the damage, so I'll probably just cover it up as well as I can. Just now on Skype, though, he said I could keep the case because he's bought a PowerMac G5 to mod (yes, we like modding Mac cases ).
The main part of the mod will be the paintjob. It'll be a fairly basic red and black, but I may decide to get adventurous with my airbrush! 0-0 The rest of the mod will be making the insides useable for a mini ITX PC (or hackintosh) and working out what to do with the ZIP drive slot on the front. Maybe a fan controller, seeing as I have 2 spare 120mm fans and a 80mm fan.
Anyway, time for some... PICTURE MADNESS!
The whole case:
Imagine that the blue bits are red :roll:
For now, it's held together with some high-tech flexible adhesive:
AKA duct tape.
It was on my trampoline, so when I got on to take a pic of the other side this happened:
Unfortunately our earlier efforts to remove the logo have left the most noticeable damage :
This is one of my two experimental pieces that fit on the base of the case, and are hard to reach:
I put the gloss clear coat on them a bit too thickly in one coat, and the gloss pooled in one place and produced this:
And finally, my cheap little external mixing airbrush:
It's bad, but it works.
So what I want to know is what to do with that zip drive slot (other than putting a zip drive in :P ) and, as usual, your opinions on it so far.
EDIT: Oh and I need ideas for a name for it!!!
