    Hello All,

    Welcome to my new worklog for a case mod which is a commissioned build.
    As part of my TAFE course I had to present an Oral presentation on a topic of my choice, Case Modding. After the presentation and
    in the following weeks I talked to my mate from class about it and being a huge Daft Punk fan, he asked if I could do a Daft Punk
    case mod for him. So here we are.

    If you don't know who Daft Punk are, here you go:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daft_Punk

    Inspiration for this project has come from the helmets they wear
    for their live shows which are full of LED's and all sorts of cool things.

    The Case chosen for this project is the new Antec Three Hundred.
    Once the case had been chosen I then set out on a design.

    The window will also include a cool LED chaser circuit to represent the side of one of the helmets.


    Lets get started, here is the case.

    I then began to start dismantling it. :)

    The dust filter removed from the front panel, won't be needing this.

    I then removed all the mesh, bay covers, switches and lights from the front
    panel ready to be prepped for paint.

    A decal was also made up which will be used for the right side panel.

    And finally, some of the lighting which will be going into this case, all green.

    From my experience so far with this case, I can already say I love it, its
    an awesome case to work with and I think a good base for any mod.

    Yer, perfect, thanks mate :)

    Got a bit of an update:

    I scuffed up the front panel with a bit of 2000 grit wet and dry and then dusted it of with a cloth.

    I then gave it a few coats of grey primer and rubbed it back with 1200 grit wet and dry.

    [​IMG]

    Then using Plasti-Kote Super Gloss red paint, i gave it two light coats and rubbed it back with 1200 grit wet and dry, and then applied another coat.

    I shall repeat this process a few more times and then buff it up.
