    You can take them apart, or mask off everything. Here is the Prawn canister installed, I've added a 4" White cold cathode light between the front intake plate and bezel.

    The lighting needs to be dimmed down a bit,for a more eerie looking feel

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    I've gotta keep plugging away at this, so it's finished in time to be shipped to Vegas for the 2010 CES.

    Whats this? It's a cannibalized Mitron Interlink, 3.5" bay fan controller

    Yes, open! this was from District-9, didnt you seen Christopher's shack? :thumbup:

    Jan 4 - 7th I believe

    Mnpctech Painter, Brad Galvin starts the transformation from pristine to weathered and dilapidated. He starts by creating the illusion of a scratched-up exterior, imagine Christopher dragged his computer in the gravel. Did he have to wrestle it away from somebody at one time?

    The Orange & White exterior finish has been scratched done to the bare metal. This is done by hand using enamel "One Shot" Silver paint and a paint brush.

    Notice the paint is chipped around the bullet holes.

    Brad has painted a variety of Prawn insignia, language and graphics by hand. The bolts are given weathered effects. Christopher left his PC out in the rain. ....Acid rain perhaps?

    There was an expolsion in the right side panel at one time.

    wish they let you make a watercooled pc, then you could have had black coolant just like the prawn fluid in the movie, oh well.
