There's a really old Power Spec PC case laying around my house, getting all dusty so I started to think of mod for it. It's a Min Tower thats for a Micro ATX. The case is all plastic with a thin layer of metal behind it , but the chassis is all metal. Pics of the case will be put up soon.
The Hardware TBA:confused::confused:

Things to do:
  • Cut a 120mm blow hole for the front.
  • Cut out the 80mm rear mesh and add a wire grill painted Orange.
  • Add black mesh to the front.
  • Get new PCI slot covers and drive bay covers.
  • Cut a window out.
  • Paint the out side gloss black.
  • Paint the chassis gross black, but not the drive bays and slot covers.
  • Paint Drive bays and slot covers gloss orange.

I will be using Krylon Yellow-Orange Fluorescent Spray Paint to give it a pop with UV lights.

Here is the plan for the left side panel. The right side will have mesh just like the left

I'm keeping tabs on this because my own case is very similar: ABS plastic panels snapped onto a bare steel frame.

I'd be very interested to learn how that Krylon fluorescent paint sticks to the plastic panels. I've seen that ABS requires special primer or paints that won't just flake or peel off with a fingernail.
