I bought this case (Compaq Presario 5000) about 5 years ago for 30$ for my first real 'build.' It was kinda on a budget so I really focused on the insides and really didnt do much to make it look cool. Now that Ive pretty much finished it, I thought I would start making it look more appealing. I decided to start with the side panel. Ive always wanted to cut it out, but I didnt really know what to put there. I finally decided today, and these are some pics of the progress...its far from finished but it will give you a taste of what it will become.

The stencil and outline and initial drawing took about 1.5-2 hrs, and the cutting and filing the edges took about the same.

Hmm..Flash makes it look better :thumbsup:

The case itself will be painted black, and as you can see Ive already gotton black faced drives. The back side of the panel will get a piece of plexiglass, and some red LEDs. The ugly purple face will be either replaced with red ones if I can find a set, or painted over in red.

So what do you guys think??

Very nice job of cutting! Are you going to light up the inside? :thumbsup:
