Project: Electric Orange

Hello to all..

I would like to Share with you, My "Electric Orange" Project I Started over a Year ago and currently still working on.

How it Started. I had an Antec Df-85 Collecting Dust. I kept Bumping into the Dam thing, so One day I got an Idea for Something Orange and Black. So i ripped into this case and Started off with a New Project.

Here is the First day last year in October. Dismantling The Antec.

Now that i have this thing Broke Down, I need a Color for it. The Search began.
I was inspired by a 69 Mopar in Omaha Orange.

A Quick trip down to the Auto Parts SHop and Presto.. Custom Mixed Cans of that Exact Color..

A started spraying Everything and Not being the Best at Using Rattle Cans I quickly Became Familiar with the Term "Orange Peel"..Sigh..

I had to think about how to Fix that Finish, In the Mean Time started Cutting up the roof and Side Panel. I Don't do Sketch work or Render any Designs.
About the Best i do is MS Paint. Forgive me.

I got an Idea now how to Really make the Paint Perfect. I will teach myself How to Use HVLP Spray Guns and fix the mess from these Rattle Cans. Bought a Compressor and Guns and Just about everything that goes along with HVLP. And why not build a Spray Booth in my Basement too.
A trip to my Local Powder Coat Acid Tanks should speed things along with the paint removal.

Here shows the panels down to Bare Metal and My Painting Setup.

I started painting and painting and Painting some more. Got it down and Produced some Really Nice Finish with these Guns. You will Start to see an improvement in my Photo Skills Soon as i Learn that Art along with Everything else..

Custom Designed Front Panel Took Shape and Finished it With Omaha Orange and Burma Black Pearl. Notice the Lack of Orange Peel here now. Thank God.

Enough About all that. Lets see some parts for this Thing

Custom Engraved Block from DT

Samsung 840 Pro's

Koolance PMP-500

MSI Z77 Mpower


Seasonic 1000w Platinum




Bitspower Blocks

Primochill Clear Acrylic and Revolvers

G.Skill Ares Ram

Custom Shoes

Lamptron CW611's

GTX 360's bought used/ GT's for Air

Here is my Current Status as of Today. I have Taken over a 1000 pics of this Build. Some are OK, Majority are in the Rubbish Bin. Still have a couple small Parts being Machined for it. I'm still modding a few things like the Main Board and PSU paint which i dont like now. Little things but still take time. More Electrical and Sleeving. Still Building and adding to my photo studio as well. Hope you enjoy and maybe stick around for more to come.

Bit of a shame that not everything matches (mainly the RAM and the sleeving).

Other than that, this is a really nice mod

Looks amazing dude. the RAM and sleeving is a tiny bit off putting, but I'm sure you'll be fixing that

when I saw the first picture of the spray, I thought everyone would go nuts on that, but the final product is awesome. Although when I hear electric orange I would think more about the orange of the sleeving rather than the yellowish orange of the case. Beautiful mod nonetheless

Gorgeous work mate. Always nice when you see acrylic tubing used in a build dunno if i'd ever have the patience to do it myself.
