Default My Next Case Mod

So here is what I have planned for my next case. I will be picking up an Antec 300 for my next build and I plan on doing the following to it.

1. Cut the necessary holes in the mobo tray for proper cable management.
2. Doing a window mod. I will be making the window 11 1/2" x 9 1/2" and using a translucent black or smoked piece of 1/8" or 1/4" acrylic.
3. Sandblasting the case and painting the interior a matte black and the exterior (except for the mesh) a carbon fiber paint scheme.
4. Applying the following graphic to the back panel of the case and then clearing the whole thing.



5. Add rocker switches to the front panels with amber LEDs in them to control the red (orange) Loygis CCFL and UV CCFL
6. Replace the expansion slot covers with the Silverstone vented slot covers

Sounds rather interesting...

By back panel, do you mean the non-windowed side? Back panel to me means where all the I/O connectors are and I don't see why you'd want a graphic there...

I'm sure you'll do an awesome job though since your CM690 was pretty professional looking.

Yep the non-windowed side of the case. If I put on enough coats of clear it should look like the graphic was painted on.

Thanks for the compliment on my CM690.
