    Re: More technical-oriented mods?

    I got mine from this thread, and the instructions for modding are here. There are also some tips that might be worth reading in that thread, depending on how comfortable you are with that sort of...

    More technical-oriented mods?

    I'm curious if anyone else here has noticed this about their modding or if I'm just weird.:)

    It seems like I'm a lot more oriented toward technical mods - adding LEDs to things, resoldering...

    Re: Not doing well with the rattle can...

    Yeah, I'm planning to finish it properly. I still have the panel on the other side that I want to do too so I'll use the extra paint. I always clear the nozzle when I'm done, but I'm pretty sure...

    Re: Not doing well with the rattle can...

    Gah! This is clearly intended as a test of my patience. First the weather was crappy for painting for about a week so I got nothing done, then it turns out this new can is just junk. I've put on a...

    Re: Not doing well with the rattle can...

    Yeah, I picked up a couple of cheap painting tarps that are probably big enough to completely cover my porch. I actually cut them in half and leave them folded once because I don't need anything...

    Re: Not doing well with the rattle can...

    Well, upon further review: Wind SUCKS!:(

    I think if I can ever get a nice calm day to paint, the 45 degree angle thing will help it look good. The problem is that when the wind keeps gusting...

    Re: Not doing well with the rattle can...

    Okay, at least I'm not the only one. It's kind of scary how much stuff I can relate to in your worklog already. And I'm just getting started.:)

    I did find a painting guide with a video, and he...

    Re: Not doing well with the rattle can...

    gobygoby: So did you run into this sort of thing at all? I'll keep that in mind about the clear coat. It's hard to tell how much of the bad texture on it right now is from that and how much is...

    Re: Not doing well with the rattle can...

    I did have at least a couple of coats of primer under there, although I forgot to say that in my last post. I'm also painting it on the ground so it's already on a flat surface (which can be a royal...

    Re: Not doing well with the rattle can...

    That was about 4 or 5 coats of the color and a couple light coats of the clear just to see if it would even things out for me. I'm pretty sure that the primer is completely covered at this point and...

    Not doing well with the rattle can...

    And here's the evidence (I know there's a lot of orange peel, but that's not what bothers me - actually it's the parts that aren't orange peeled that bug me more because they stick out like a sore...

    Re: Prices?

    Which brings us to the most expensive part - you'll need at least a high end digital SLR camera to show off your masterpieces.:D

    If you lived over here I would say we should join forces. I'm...

    Re: Converting a MX-510 to G7

    I can't answer that authoritatively, but most rechargeable batteries these days are designed to get thousands of recharge cycles before their capacity degrades to an unacceptable level (although I...

    Re: The best case Mod you have ever seen?

    I'm really impressed with both the HL2 and Doom 3 cases, but the technical side of Crimson's just puts it ahead of anything I've seen. Artistically I think they're both very close to even, but the...
  16. Re: Metal plates - pics & looking for suggestions

    Okay, thanks. It sounds like we're thinking of the same thing as far as the finish goes. Just a protective coat of something that has a matte finish.:)

  18. Re: Metal plates - pics & looking for suggestions

    Thanks for the reply. Looks like some good stuff to try. Just a couple of questions though...


    A matte clearcoat then, or something different from a clearcoat?

    Any suggestions on what I...
  19. Metal plates - pics & looking for suggestions

    Okay, here's my first attempt at modding. I'd like to put some metal-looking panels on the side of my case - something similar to the panels you see on Crimson Sky or Mashie's Doom 3 mods. Probably...
