Small UP!

As you can see I had to move the cage inside of HDD, for reasons of space, since in the front I will install a radiator 360! I think I do later the holes. because those in case are not useful; so I can place the port HDD to a fair distance between the radiator and the power supply!
 
Now beginning to mask all the pieces and then paint it!

Finally paint! I used a red metallic paint which comes closest to the Red Scarlet, I hope to look good color! Unfortunately from the photos the color is not exactly what it seems! 

When I'll finish the work, I will do the photos with reflex and lights!

Render to reality. Looking good so far. I'm always afraid to do any painting to early, just incase I get any scratch's while making other Mods, But I seem to doddle around forever before I get finished. Keep working it, this should be a build to be proud of !

Here is a Big Up as I promised! :D

I unplugged, with the hair dryer, the label from hdd, I took me some time to not throw too much heat on the HDD, then to soften the glue have been there a good 5 minutes!
 
228TIxV.jpg
 
Then I put on the kit box of screwdrivers, the adhesive because I didn't know which on the surface to keep it for not to make him completely lose adhesiveness  :)

I masked the HDD to paint it quietly and then cut the upper ribbon with the cutter precision to cover only the part in relief and the inputs of the screws! Getting what you see in the picture above!
 
OdD42E4.jpg
 
Here I gave a primer because it did not take paint well, in fact I had to removing paint and do it again!
 
n0MYLwE.jpg
 
Black paint!
 
vmnHQlM.jpg
 
That's what I obtained! The edges could not come better than this! Then I touched up by hand with a brush and paint spray!

P7W9ZEY.jpg
 
Now it masks the contrary! And so red!

Here cutter precision I gently removed the tape paper after first warmed a bit with the hair dryer! Always better to warm it up a bit 'otherwise you risk that take away the paint below!
 
vobQrQj.jpg
 
Removed the first piece, no damage to the paint!  :D
 
fe95kbd.jpg
 
Removing the second piece, painted screws and glued the adhesive after heating it! I put a pinch of attack where it didn't adhere! Usually it doesn't adhere on the tip that one removes first!

Here's the finished result! I hope you like it! If you have suggestions for improving the quality of workmanship didn't hesitate to tell me! I'm curious of your opinion!  :)
 
For the moment it's all about! At the next UP! :D

Here is another UP!
 
As I said the hdd were 2! Here's the second, I hope you like it! :D
 
The process was much the same as the first HDD!
 
pk1Jaow.jpg
 
I removed the adhesive, screws etc. to paint! I gave HDD the red and then a masked only time the part that I wanted to keep the red! So I saved masking process that could ruin the paint once detached!  :)

Let me know if you like and which of the two HDD favorite! Personally I prefer the latter  :D

I like the second hard drive painting :) Where will these be displayed in your build?

 

I start with a premise, for me any work to be done in every detail, I'm a stickler for accuracy  :D
 
The HDD will be placed in the cage inside the walls of plexy, will not be visible unlike ssd :) But the attention to detail has led me to customize even those ;)

 

Loving the color!  Last one is my fave.

 

Thank you very much! It's probably because of the thicker border which gives a more aggressive look :)

Here is a new UP!

It 's time to see how it came the painting!

I really like it  :D

Here I had to remove the dust filter and put it behind the red grid, otherwise you could not see much of a red! Then with the simple Vinavil glue I glued it all!

Here's the finished result! I know it's different from the render I did, in which I had removed the black grid above, but I have to say that so I like more  :) 
 
All for today people! At the next UP!  ;)

Sorry for the absence, but I'm working on autocad for the pieces that will be laser cut later this month!
 
I would say to start!
 
We see the bars as they came!  :)

I must say I really like it! Color is what I wanted  :)

Here I decided to paint the screws to give contrast to the black rubber pads!  ;) 
 
Now to the castle of HDD!  :D

Soon with New UP!

I must say that I struggled quite a bit to work without removing the rivets of the case! What a great labor, I tried to be as accurate as possible! What do you say?  B)

New up!
 

 

To enter the new mask for the three fans I had to cut away this part:
 
qTv3DPP.jpg
 
To cut it I removed the blade from the hacksaw and holding it in his hand, I cut.
This is because with the detached blade could easily reach the edge, but I will not recommend it highly.  ;)

This is the result! I know it's not much, but don't worry I'm working on the mod, or better a couple of things that I need for the mod!
For example the restructuring of the cellar, creating a painting booth home made, at least I have a place where I can work in peace!
 

Currently I have gone on to the pieces of CAD! As soon as I finish the ideas, I'll post something!
 
In the next days new up!  :D

NEW UP!

 

To make room for the radiator front that will insert with 6 fans in push / pull and not to stand too close to the PSU, I had to drill at a distance about halfway between the last and second last hole factory in this case!

Here are pictures  :D

Holes made with a bit of trouble because I was quite uncomfortable for drilling  <_<

I couldn't stand to leave a week without something to discuss  :D 
 
We begin !!  ;)

Photos because of the light and of my poor ability with the camera have given birth these colors :huh:  
Live makes much better!  :P

This is the grid! I must say that I like very much because of the contrasting black and red! I thought worse! Then viewed from above can see very well the color red, as we tilts toward the edges less and less :)  Same principle of TN panels ahahahah :D 
 
Y7Vh6Cj.jpg
 

Here's the last picture! Believe me that the colors are much more beautiful
 
Guys I hope that with this last one up wholly follow you Obviously guys aspect advice and your opinions! Even tips on how to improve the build and advice on how to make better pictures! 
 
Now I go a week in Barcelona, when I get important news!  :D

Soon New UP!  ;) Stay Tuned!

 

Coming along nicely. Makes me think a metallic red/dark gunmetal combo would be nice too.

 

Thanks :)  The black parts will be repainted with a metallic black ;)
