I have allways found pantyhose to work extremly well, plus it is dirt cheap.

Def needs a paint job inside.

Just finished my paintjob this we, what a difference.

Nice choice for your new diggs! Thinking about a nice inside black paint job. You will like the right side for running and hiding your wiring.

Pantyhose for dust filter........hmmmmm. Good idea there Supergrover. The women are always ruining a pair or three. Use these castoffs for a second use.

I use pantyhose for dust filters too.. I just get a bunch of em and slide the fans down into the toe; then zip tie the opening around the wire on one corner and boom it's good!

Nice looking case, look forward to see the results once its painted. I bought the same paint but in gloss white, never got around to spraying it though. Are you planning on using a primer 1st

The Strip Down!!

And Mask Up

Don't really see a way to remove the quick release for the 5.25" drive bays without damaging the case. So many odd angles they are hard to mask and dont want them painted!

Suggestions???

The top and bottom of the latches can be squeezed together enough to disengage the tabs. At least I could on my Cosmos S. The latch can also be slid slightly to the back or front to make this easier.

Sweet, had to be real careful not to break the tabs but that did it; now I hope I can get them back in. LOL.

Im guessing you dont have any fans in visible areas of your case? I cant even imagine how that would look through the window in my 690...
