    project:Tony Montana

    Another resurrection!!! But with this one I decided to change the theme all together. Originally I was thinking a marble orange paint with florescent orange plexi. Then about a week ago I a new idea hit me: Scarface.

    The aim of this build is a pc that “could have” been sitting right on Tonys desk and “would have” matched or fit in with every thing else in the room.
    this is the case I started with. An old heavy no name Pentium 2. I did the cuts and the white base coat about two years ago and have not touched it since.

    Once I decided to rework it with the Scarface theme I pretty much knew just what I what to do, its pretty much all planned out in my head.

    The front panel will be a solid red piece of plexiglass, prob uv reactive(ima check around this week). The lettering will be cut out as will space for the optical drive and a usb/av control deck. To the far left will be the power, reset, and led power switches.

    The basic idea for the the case window. Etched and back lit in red.

    Mock parts just checking for fit positioning and space. Also tried two different shades of red…neither.

    Found the perfect dark deep red.

    With the top panel ill be adding a little but of gold flake and a lot of coats of clear. Also planning on adding some gold embellishment in the style of most of the gold things in Tonys office.

    More to come soon. Thanks for looking.

    i knocked the dust off and begun to move forward with this project. found the perfect frame for the top of the case. under the glass i will place a back lit plexiglass with an etch of thethe figure on the dvd cover. or something like that.

    i changed my mind on the front bezel, im going wih doors that swing open and closed and hide the drive bays. i have not decided exactly what im going to display in the frames in the front bezel. the fan frame (left one) needs to be shortend about a half inch and the one to the far right will be removed and replaced with a power control panel.

    im between and small lcd display and / or back lit acrylic cut outs. maybe both.

    the feet. glass and iron. i will add leds to them. im thinking red and white leds for the entire project.

    the psu. pretty simple. black fan, psu guts, and red leds come after a wet sand and another coat of paint.

    more pics coming soon.....i still got to catch this worklog up.

    thanks for looking.

    more work on the feet...the beads match the paint well combined with leds they look pretty cool.

    drilled athe few holes through the top of the case to attach the frames with screws. the top panel and the frames are pretty much ready for a final wet sand and paint.

    thanks for looking.

    when i drill in to metal i usually place a small magnet near the drill bit to collect the dust.

    in placing the feet i stuck with the cut outs for the original rubber stoppers.

    i have some molding that iam thinking of using along the bottom of the case..not sure but once the front bezel drys and i put it on, i will see how it looks.

    idea for the metal cut out placed on the fan intake grill.

    more updates soon thanks for looking..

    getting the far right hand side of the bezel together. only adding a power button to this piece. the power and hard drive leds will go into the back of the plexi, which will go into the the frame itself. the hinge screws extend into the plexi which will bare the weight of the frame door. other buttons, rocker switches, and/or pentameters i add go behind the bezel doors on the front frame itself .

    also got started on the mother board and power supply tray.. red and white leds will go into these to light the edges of them.

    ive been looking at led controllers and am giving some thought to using one in this build, though i plan on only using red and white leds ..

    more updates to come soon. thanks for looking.

    small updates. just a little bit of paint. ive been getting a little bit of work in on this project almost daily, which is a really good thing, considering how busy ive been.

    gold flaked and clear coated parts of the case feet. should be ready to put them together for good soon.

    sprayed some flat white on the bezel just to bring out the imperfections before sanding , these will be sprayed gold so they need to be really smooth.

    sprayed gold flake and clear on the psu fan. the after pics are not too telling but it came out good. .

    thats all for now, as always thanks for looking.
