    No. I will paint it flat black to match.

    The memory came today. OCZ PC4000 Gold (2x512MB)



    Should I add another pin stripe here? It'll only be a vertical stripe though.

    I worked on the custom Mopar grill and yes, I know it's not perfect, but it is a start.



    Here's kind of what I'm looking for.



    Except I want mesh. Not thin modder's mesh, but something thicker. So I took it from this old case.



    Here's what it looks like joined to the grill framing



    And then again with the "M"



    All the excess along the sides had to go....So I started cutting



    Till I finished



    And replaced the "M"



    Here's kind of what to expect with the case fan attached.





    One last thing. Should I leave the "M" Silver or paint it? Maybe to match the case (at least as close as possible)?

    There's a thought. I need to see if I can get a close match to the case color.for the mesh. Here's a look of the black M.

    The hood scoop has arrived.




    Should I put the scoop farther back



    Or more in the middle?




    Here's the mesh. I will not be using this mesh.




    For the side scoop option, I found these at Auto Zone.



    If I cut them into single pieces and lie them side by side it looks like this




    And this...




    I think I like the first two better.

    I got the matching keyboard and mouse combo



    And I bought the custom Dodge etch from Crazy PC



    Then applied it to the window.



    Then I got the hole saw for the exhaust fan on top.



    The hole saw was actually too dull and I had to finish with the dremel.



    I then fixed the bad hole and applied the flat black.



    Then peeled off the tape.



    And used the pin striping.

    Yeah it will be an exhaust. Heat rises, so it seem stupid to fight that.

    I replaced the mesh for the Hood Scoop.




    And I painted the Hood Scoop to match the case.



    Then I drilled out the screw holes .



    Then I put the fan in and blackened the screws.



    Then put the Hood Scoop perfectly on.

    Well I woke up at 3:00 a.m. and couldn't fall back asleep so...

    Just to see what it looks like, I added the drives





    Then I hooked the top exhaust fan to a test PC to see it lit up.




    Lastly I fixed the pin stripe so that comes from the Superbee logo and goes clear to the end of the case.

    Yeah, I like the keyboard, but the mouse is pretty crappy. It's a horrible Apple-type knock off.


    I went to the hobby store and spent .99 cents on some lettering.



    Which added some detail to the hood scoops.





    Next came the window grill. First some primer...



    Then the green on the mesh.



    And I made the grill frame black.



    Then I bonded the Mopar "M" to the mesh



    And lastly I put it all together.



    And then on the panel.

    I'm waiting for my motherboard to arrive so while I wait I thought I'd get some "current progress" pics.
