    Custom Casing Almost Done™ - (Large Images)

    Just keeping you guys updated on that classic computer I am building. The case is almost done and I am still looking for all the old parts I want to use which is hard because I always want to build the fastest computer possible.

    The inner parts are all chomed. Since I was afraid of shorting out system by chroming the motherboard plate, I just painted it jet black and rubbed it down as well as I could. The outer part of the case is Pearl White. I used Anzal Automative paint and it's taken me about 4 weeks to get this far.

    Here are the assembled parts... amd still doing the front face, you guys will see that soon.

    Toolbox -- If you can stand to watch paint dry for 4 weeks, can I conclude that you also have a 28.8 kbps connection too? Just kidding.

    Thanks for the compliments guys... I hope everything turns out well.

    I don't know what kind of case it is though. All I know is that it is the first case I ever got. It's been around since about 1996 or 1997. I just dug it up in my storage room and decided to use it. Once I finished the front part of the casing, I'm sure someone will be able to identify it.

    Cheers all.
