thought id post my old new rig

so most of you know im in the process of planing my new rig and i thought id give you a bit of a giggle at what my old rig looked like.

(at the time i had rather alot of pride in it now i just laugh its about 2/3years old now)









mmmmm look at that sexy cable management .... tho have to say the painted grills look so much better than the stock black.

whent to a lan with the case when i had finished and it sat next to a stock antec 900 and just made it look cheap

Not sure if it's lack of paint or spraying from different distances.

Actually looking again looks like lack of paint. Painting a case properly, even with rattle cans is very expensive. You need to paint on thick enough layers to cut back with P800 between coats. And then of course enough laquer to be able to cut, wet sand and buff the crap out of for a mirror shine.

Good finishes with rattle cans are very possible providing you know what you're doing and use enough paint and put the time and effort in (IE lots). when I painted the Radiomactive I ended up using 5 500ml cans of yellow, 3 500ml cans of pink, 5 cans of primer and 4 cans of laquer.

IIRC I spent about $70 on paint alone.

Bit of both Alien but if he kept layering it would have matched.

yeh this was my 2nd attempt at spraying again with a air brush not cans also done in a very small bed room at the time :P

lesson learnt tho much more paint needed many many more thin coats needed for a good finish if i end up painting my new rig hopefully ill be able to find a suplyer for some house of color paints.

i wish i had copys of my hp project case i did for friend where it was air brushed again with like a metalic and silver main body with a pearl orange and looked imaculate.

House of Kolor....

If you use HOK you have to use HOK for everything start to finish to get a decent finish... I swear by it and any specialist stuff I do is all HOK.
