Thread: So I got tired of the faceplate mocking me

    So I got tired of the faceplate mocking me

    Whenever I looked at my case it was boring on the front end, (see thread http://www.modders-inc.com/ftopict-574-.html) mainly because I removed the vinyl flames. I instead made a new face plate a month or 2 ago and am just now getting to doing something with it, here is the cut out and completed face before the paint.

    16ga SS sheet sheared, plasma cut out and, 50ton press brake job: $0 (little time though)
    16ga SS mesh $0
    Paint $10
    I know pics already, first face raw

    the mesh being held in place for looks

    I just got through giving it a good coating in "etch primer" why etch primer? etch primer has acid in it that actually eats in to the metal to make excellent adhesion and is needed on SS and aluminum to make paint stick and not chip off. It can be found at auto parts stores for 5 bucks a can.

    (the red was from the case not the face)
    and a better shot


    I just put a coat of case black hammered paint on the back of the face, I need more red for the mesh, I though I had some but, I forgot that I threw out the last can because of a sticking nozzle. So if by 8-9 o'clock (eastern US) I have not made a update bug the crap out of me to get new pics up of the finished product, I'm off to apply paint on the front.

    I love it when a mod is modded again. Bummer that I have to wait to see the outcome. It's now 10:53pm EST. Where are the pics? Great start and I like the mesh. Happy Modding to ya.

    sorry I meant 8-9 tonight, I just put a coat of red on the back of the mesh, in a few I will have the front painted and then will attach it and get updated pics of the inside also

    Well you guys have been good and I now have to go to Radio Shack so here are some pics

    I was cleaning some of the dust out and my arm broke off my power switch, I know they are bad design but they are so cool, shells from my Desert Eagle .50 A.E. need better switches.

    next I moved the pump up so it was more in the loop of the WC

    whole shot

    I also decided to replace most screws with SS hex head, on the cheap from McMaster-Carr
    Expansion cards (screws)

    Drives (screws)

    and what you came for
    I put 2 pieces of tape on the inside of the face plate to make maximum adhesion


    Mesh glued in place
