    r3volt -- Scratch Build Case **Updated 2/25/2012

    For Starters, this is my first post. So I want to say Hello.

    Leatherface introduced me to this site after I spoke to him during PAX on my current build.

    Personal Info --
    Name - Rafe
    Age - 22
    Loc - Washington

    ** Updated ** Check Bottom of POST!
    Ill be updating as often as possible, most of the case has already been done. I wasn't aware this site existed prior to starting. But there is still alot to do on this case. And I also will be making a small media server case to host a vent/MC server.

    ** UPDATE ** (prob 2nd to last)
    After much much much work, and the awesome help of my uncle we buffed out the whole case, and got everything all prepped and squared away. Sadly I didn't have a way/chance to take pictures as I placed the vinyls on to the case, but the final pictures do enough justice. If anyone ever has questions about how I did anything on this build I can walk you through it 100%

    She is pretty much done, still never came up with a name for her. But only I can think of one word to sum it up. AWESOME! Again I want to thank everyone for all there help. GraphxOnline YOU ROCK!

    BTW If you are a WA resident I will be @ the next few Lan Events..Next up is EMERALD CITY LAN!

    Thanks, we still got a ways to go. Should be fun finishing this. We will be making a 2nd scratch build. This one was a real test in the waters.

    Updated with TONS of images from recent events. The only thing standing in the way of it being 100% is Wax/Vinyl Application some trim and a face plate.
