Sweet idea dude! MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I've gotta keep plugging away at this, so it's finished in time to be shipped to Vegas for the 2010 CES.

Whats this? It's a cannibalized Mitron Interlink, 3.5" bay fan controller

:lol: Don't use a fogger. Not only does that stuff leave a nice layer of sticky dust all over everything, I really don't think you want a bad-ass combat rig to smell like flowers.

Mnpctech Painter, Brad Galvin starts the transformation from pristine to weathered and dilapidated. He starts by creating the illusion of a scratched-up exterior, imagine Christopher dragged his computer in the gravel. Did he have to wrestle it away from somebody at one time?

The Orange & White exterior finish has been scratched done to the bare metal. This is done by hand using enamel "One Shot" Silver paint and a paint brush.

Notice the paint is chipped around the bullet holes.

Very nice. I'll bet it got a lot of photo ops.

I'm going to buy the same case, and see if I can get the same effect throwing it down the basement stairs a few dozen times. :P
