I have no idea about the engine. I think I'll have to skip it.

I got the matching keyboard and mouse combo

Image

And I bought the custom Dodge etch from Crazy PC

Image

Then applied it to the window.

Image

Then I got the hole saw for the exhaust fan on top.

Image

The hole saw was actually too dull and I had to finish with the dremel.

Image

I then fixed the bad hole and applied the flat black.

Image

Then peeled off the tape.

Image

And used the pin striping.

Scrounge!

I hope you're submitting this build to MaxPC for their mod of the month. You've done some really sweet work and gone the extra mile to stay on theme. Reading through your posts is like watching Bob Vila craft something great... without the ghey!

so far looking great!!!

the only thing I was going to suggest was the Mopar sign, paint the grill black and leave the M unfinished/silver/chrome
also since the disc drive and gauge cluster is a bit offshade/sheen of black, it is easy to pop them off and paint them as well.

Yep, everything that comes in black will be changed to flat black to match the case. I thought of submitting it to MaxPC, but they've never emailed me in the past and I don't think they would here either. Maybe I will send you that engine Spider Monkey.......

Here's some pics with the new scoop. This is just so you have an idea. I still have to replace the mesh and make the black match the case.

Where'd you manage to find a keyboard mouse that matched the color so perfectly?

Aspire makes the case and keyboard and mouse :D
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I replaced the mesh for the Hood Scoop.

Image
Image

And I painted the Hood Scoop to match the case.

Image

Then I drilled out the screw holes .

Image

Then I put the fan in and blackened the screws.

Image

Then put the Hood Scoop perfectly on. :D

Well I woke up at 3:00 a.m. and couldn't fall back asleep so...

Just to see what it looks like, I added the drives

Image
Image
Image

Then I hooked the top exhaust fan to a test PC to see it lit up.

Image
Image

Lastly I fixed the pin stripe so that comes from the Superbee logo and goes clear to the end of the case.

I went to the hobby store and spent .99 cents on some lettering.

Image

Which added some detail to the hood scoops.

Image

Image

Next came the window grill. First some primer...

Image

Then the green on the mesh.

Image

And I made the grill frame black.

Image

Then I bonded the Mopar "M" to the mesh

Image

And lastly I put it all together.

Image

And then on the panel.

Image

The scoop is my favorite feature, although I think the rest of the mod is great as well. How are you attaching the scoop?

Yeah...Still, even without the MB, its impressive.

I'm pretty much done with ebay unless its as a seller. I'm tired of the spam and general crap with dealers/sellers.

Paypal basically sucks as well - I've disliked them for a few years now.

I do hope it gets resolved. Its a great Mod.
