see personally I am really digging the white. But I am not a really red/black kind of guy.
A sharp white with a glossy candy red just seems to appeal a lot more to me.

White highlights the Maple Leaf, making this case very distinguishable as Canadian. That is the point

HWC logo goes in the rectangular portion of the window. We made this one with all RED text, but I've scrapped it for two tone Grey & Red just like the real logo. I'm working on that today.




Got the Black sample of the grill back from Anodizers yesterday

Indeed. I love seeing the grain in the anodized aluminum.

We're gonna experiment tonight with some different vinyl films for the logo. First we'll try the Gun Metal Carbon Fiber to create the dark grey "HARDWARE" text

I'm in agreement with the red/white contrast looking sharp. I also believe it does a great job making the case 'distinctly canadian'. It's a colour combo not a lot of people go with, but certainly separates it from all the other generic red case mods.
