Thank you for the comments guys! While I'm still waiting for the system hardware to arrive,
I'm adding final details to the interior, like these 140mm Honeycomb Fan Grills for the exhaust and floor intake, I've painting them camouflage, to match the painted interior.

120mm and 140mm Modders Mesh Fan Grill



Supplies in order of Use.
1. Red Scotch brite Pad to scuff the surface of the grills
2. Tack Cloth to clean
3. Red Primer (any color is fine)
4. Apply Rustoleum "Specialty Series" Camouflage Paints
5. Apply Matte Clear

Thank you! and Sorry for lack of updates..I'm working on 3 other custom builds for CES, and it's getting down to crunch time..

The system hardware for BF3 has finally started arriving, so I could update you! First was Intel's i-7 2600 and Prolimtech Genesis cpu cooler. I was initially concerned about space for install / uninstall of the Patriot memory modules (w/ heat spreaders), but there is plenty of space! I bumped the asus sabertooth optional 50mm fan hole for cooling the P67 chipset to 60mm...and camouflaged the fan too! Final detail was cover the Apevia "Green blade" cooling fans with 120mm billet "Sniper" fan grills

Thank you!

Camouflaged the EVGA 560ti fan shroud, to match the painted interior of the PC.





I chose PATRIOT MEMORY for our system memory and solid state storage!

Patriot Memory WILDFIRE



Patriot Memory Division 2, VIPER EXTREME, DDR3

That is so cool. Finished product looks great. So, let me ask. Is this your job? To modify cases for various manufacturers/developers?
