    Default Project: Mustang Cobra GT500

    I did just say in another thread that I haven't had the time to work on my mod, but this is different. At the Micro Center where I work, we usually have a computer with great specs on display for the customers to check out and enjoy. At the moment we have nothing on display, but the manager wants us to throw something together. He also wants it to be "different", so I'm doing a custom Cobra GT500 theme case with the dual white stripes going up the front and across the top. I will be painting everything else flat black.

    I chose the Coolermaster 690 since it's a case that we sell and it's not all that pricey. The employee cost was $50.

    Oh, and I plan on finishing within two weeks!

    Here's the case on Newegg









    Here's the inside top panel. It's ugly and will be modded as well



    The inputs have been removed as I prep for painting





    The whole interior will be flat black. There's a lot of painting left to do once I get some more!

    This is the goofy pattern on the inside top and front



    I used a wire cutter to remove the pattern and then a sanding block on my dremel to smooth out the edges





    Then I taped up the top for painting



    And added a few coats of flat white paint



    Three hours later the tape came off



    Next, I removed the filters from the front bay covers so when I paint on the other side it doesn't leak through



    And I peeled off the Coolermaster logo on the front



    The front is then taped off too



    I also taped off the side panel where I'll cut the window

    Looks nice so far. Removing the plastic inside the screen is a definite improvement, and it should improve air flow.

    Looks good, but...your pics are all screwed up...at least on my end.

    I put the inputs back into the top panel



    And then reconnected the painted panels on the case
