Yeh not too many Edmontonian's here on HWC anymore.
I love the paint job.
I'm going to look around for a functional case first, or i may stick with the 900 . Who knows.

You can make any case look good with a nice paint job.

This is probably true, but it helps when you have a great case with skills to match. Looking forward to seeing the finished product

Ok guys. Little update no progress yet. I have been a little lazy on the black painting and gloss. I have the paint and gloss, but not the time as of yet to do it. Also, I have recently decided to turf the old black grill shown here.Reusing the cosmos S emblem.


And use it instead as a mold for plastic. I am going to mold ether clear red,black or just plain clear and mold the plastic with a little heat and my hands(with gloves of course) to give it the same shape as the old grill, then cut 4 strategically placed air holes for the old fan to suck air in. here are the parts as they are now. what do you think i should use as a plastic? red,black or clear?Here isanother pic of the grill with the plan for the holes in it.and the complete assembily. OH! Ialso need suggestions on those ugly metalic plates. Red or black?
