All the edges that you can see on the case and this front cover will need to have cuts made for the
EL wire to fit in about half way for a more clean look.




The sound proofing was quite easy to remove from the back of the front cover.






When the proofing was removed it reveals some holes that you can stick a screwdriver in to remove the case badge.

For the EL wire to sit nice I started of cutting the groves freehand, might be a faster and better way to do this
but with only a couple of slips repaired with some filler, it worked out ok in the end









I wanted to do a Tron disc in the center of the case and in doing so will allow for me to make a nice new
hole in the center of the disc to allow for a bit more air to get in and add to the overall look of the case.




Not the best hole I've ever made, just needed a quick sanding down.




This is to show you all where I plan to have the disc, if all goes to plan I will be airbrushing around the disc and blending in to the front of the case.




The top, sides and front have all had the groove treatment, took some time but worth it
You will also see that all the parts have been sanded down ready for primer.

Some of them slip-ups filled in with plastic putty.





Hole prep ready for when the EL wire is attached to the case.




As I mentioned before, need to get the paint down asap as the primer needs 24hrs to dry, 1st base coat 24hrs, 2nd base coat 5 to 7 days before a final sanding, then the 1st clear coat 3 days and more sanding, and finally the top clear with around 7 days before a final sand and buff in order to get the best shine possible.




You will see some parts are in the grey or white primer stages, the inside parts will be white, outer black.
Don't think I will be using the fan, but did it anyway just encase lol






2nd coat of primer done, forgot to mention that. so add another 24hrs





As the case was in the 24hrs stage I moved on to the components, SSD, RAM and sound card.
Forgot to upload the sound card photos so I will add them when I next update the log.








1st coat of white plastic-dip.




The covers are now painted white, not sure if I will be adding gloss to the inside, I will see how it looks later in the build before deciding.



1st coat of black has been done, I now need to get them all sanded down and add a 2nd coat.

Sorry to you both for the late reply, you will see why in the next post I make.
I also wish for a modern well done Tron game, it's a perfect platform to build from
with simple but effective design and colors.
