After doing a few modified and special paint/themed cases someone asked if I could do a Harley Davidson themed case. So, I told them to let me think it over and I would see what I could come up with.
About a week later I stopped at a cpu store in another town, I was actually looking for a case with a some chrome embellishments. In their junk pile they had this custom white case with two chrome plated front air grills. I have no idea of who manufactured the case, but the design looked ok and I could see a spark of an idea began.
First here are a few shots of the humble beginnings of Hawg Wild U.S.A., pretty generic huh. :)
With all the plastics painted, I turned my attention to the case. First, I completely disassembled the steel frame of the case, sandblasted, sanded and primed it. Then I took the side panel which originally housed an 80mm fan and marked out the lines to cut a window. I used a scroll saw with a metal cutting blade to make this cut and finished it out with my dremel. Next, I sandblasted the side panels and primed them as well.
