Hey guys. a Customer wanted a rather "Conservative" mod done by us ( compared to the extremes us modders like to go) based on his love for Golf.
We decided to go with a low end chassis. He only uses it to check gold and e-mail. So the hardware is rather modest, and the case we chose was this:
So we went from their and started, well to be honest, my first THEME mod. The Theme is GOLF of all things lol. Something I knew nothing about.
I started by replacing the button with a piece of his favorite kind of golf balls.
that sucked trying to cut that off straight.
I basically just glued it over the top of the existing button. But there is a little light behind it so it lights it up quite well.
As you can see on the inside (as I was gluing down the top parts) the case is rather simple. But again, that's more than we needed for this.
Then we procured some actual artificial putting green. So I cut it out for the top of the case.
I then cut a hole for the cup, and even made an awesome sand trap!
I found an old ... driver? what ever it is, golf club. and cut the handle off.
The owner also gave me some personal ibjects from his golfing excursions, that I wanted to display.
so now the front looks like this
Oh yeah, forgot to mention I added the green on front too. Like it?
Then, since I have a lot of balls (i can't help but chuckle like a 12 year old)
I added them for FEET TOO!
again cutting those was miserable, tried doing it with a Dremel... the melting plastic gave me a 3rd degree burn. Don't try this at home lol
but I eventually got'em
So that's it for now guys, we still have work to do on the sides. have some fun ideas for that too.
