No, lol... Sadly in Florida. But if you did I would love to have my 1963 Ford Falcon, that I inherited from my dad painted. It's hard to find a quality painter these days... The guy I bought my 97 Acura from had it painted and it's already fading... I am very hesitate to where I take the Falcon.

When ever I get the money, I will get the Falcon restored... But none the less your paint work is gorgeous.

That Falcon in this Blue would be HAWT! I would just keep searching for a painter, I'm sure theres somebody worthy

The image that keeps appearing in my mind looking at everything on the table is a custom `57 Chevy, the big chrome grill and sexy pearl flake paint. The warehouse had an art crawl friday night, so I was busy entertaining guests. Today I'm meeting with the chief technology engineer at hardcorecomputer.com to talk about a project. I'm looking forward to seeing the Reactor PC in person :D

That's a cool case. Have you ever tried to build one from scratch?

Thanks heartagram, it will be posted on CaseModBlog.com The Zalman MFC1 fan controller is installed. I had to make extension brackets so the faceplate was flush with the billet 5.35 bay covers. I found some blue anodize machined screws for mounting it (nice!)

mod brothers logo window applique! It looks just like laser etching. It’s actually a custom made frosted vinyl film.

All of the Zalman MFC1-plus fan controller's leds burned out. After less than 1 hour of run time. I had seen this happen before and hoped Zalman had fixed the issue, but apparently theres still bad units floating around. I bought the first from performance-pcs and second from newegg. I emailed them both to be aware of the faulty units. I also emailed Zalman. I've checked over all of the connections, no signs as to why they die. Well see what Zalman's response is. In any case, I'm not going to buy another and risk it burning out on the individual that gets this case. I'll be installing the Scythe KAZE MASTER 5.25 fan controller instead. I ordered one today. As soon as it's installed, we'll get the video recorded.

The case arrived to it's new home damaged. Looks like UPS tossed it and it landed hard enough to dent the steel chassis.

Would you believe UPS claims department didn't want to pay the claim? Their inspector went to the Receiver's house and said I didn't package the case properly. I guess he missed the crushed corner in the carton.

The case was finally returned to me yesterday and I sent them these photos. After a few phone calls and photos of the case before it was shipped, they finally agreed to process the claim. It was not an easy process, they fought me even though I sent them photos taken by the Receiver. Knowing the case would arrive Friday afternoon, I went to find my UPS guy and get them these photos before the claims dept went home for the weekend.

My advice if you're ever in this same situation with a high buck item, takes lots of before shots of the item and the carton and packing material before you shipped it.
