This is my latest creation.
Originally this was an Aopen KF45A, quite boring case. Time to mod the sucker.
When I started this mod I had a clear picture in my mind how the case should look when it was done.
First i made the acrylic sidepanels I cut them with a sharp knife and break it along the cut line.
Then I sanded the sides with some sandpaper first a 80grid then a 120 and so on till 600grid and to finish it of with the back
of the 600grid paper.
Then I applied the window etches wich a teacher of me made. This was relative hard because the etch was quite fine and weak.
When this was done I began to fit them on the case itself. I measured all the cuts i had to do for example the cd rom and buttons.
Then I cut the holes and finished it of by spraying the back of the panels with some blue metallic paint.
The following was to cut a front blowhole in the case, in the front there would be a 120mm fan to suck in air.
I cut the hole with my jigsaw and cleaned it with my dremel.
Then the case was finished with some silver metallic spray paint.
Then I mounted all the components like leds, switches etc.
The last thing I had to do was to mount my custom "fanguard" for the front blowhole, I made this fan guard with a piece of acrylic and my dremel wich i carved the logo on the acrylic.
This case is some kind of tribute to a club I used to visit, it was called Zillion and this logo on my case was the logo of the club.
Unfortunatly the club had to close down 2 years ago, but i could never let it go.
