Ok, here's the deal. I have a giant CM stacker that I just got up and running and last night I tore it apart to see if I can get my water rig converted over to it and also trying to see if the TDX waterblock will be able to work at all with the new 775. Anyway, that's how it's setting now. Ripped down.
This weekend I'll be finishing up a paint job on my buddy's cycle and I won't be back in my booth for a while and got a hair to paint this case. Coolermaster is holding a contest over at their forums, and the entries are shit so far IMO (Booradley, if you read this...get yours in there!)
. But I don't have an idea for this one that I think I can live with for a while besides the Repsol Honda theme. I'm a huge motorcycle fan and so that works great for me. But the aluminum is also nice, and I'll be covering all of it up. So, that's the poll. Paint over the aluminum or not.
Here's the theme I'm going for:
And my buddy was nice enough to let me experiment a bit to get the ripped edge thing down as I've never done it. He was going Orange and Charcoal, but after seeing this in person, he dug it so now that's what I have to do on the fairings now. Here's the tail to give you a little idea:
That's just one coat of clear with the pearl in it (hard to see inside) and after that I shot on 3 more clear and it's awesome!
All in all, this is going to be hard because the stacker's abilitiy to go to BTX and ATX, so the design will have to carry onto the doors so they can flip sides, but that's not a big deal, it just adds more attention.
But I can fill ya'll in as it goes along (if the votes look like I should do this) and it'll be a great tutorial on how to paint a case using REAL paint. So, let me here your opinions! Aluminum is sexy, but everyone seems to have an aluminum case. I want something I've never seen before. (I was going to go Pearl White, but MPC's Dream machine is pearl white
RULES: If you think I should paint it, but not that color...don't vote! I'll throw some other ideas up! You can then vote for that one.
And don't quote me with the images in the quotes please.
