HOW TO MOD AND THEME A COMPUTER CASE WINDOW:

IT IS TRUE THAT MOST MODDERS ARE CONSTANTLY LOOKING FOR THAT NEXT GREAT MOD, AS WITH MY PREVIOUS INSTRUCTABLE (TURNING ON A PC BY INSERTING A CARD).

WITHOUT EXCEPTION THEY ALSO SEARCH FOR A UNIQUE LOOK OR THEME TO THEIR PC.

MY INSPIRATION COMES FROM A WASTELAND / SCAVENGER THEME.....

THE WINDOW MADE UP FROM SEVERAL RANDOM PIECES OF PLEXIGLASS WHICH TOGETHER CREATE A RAG-TAG LOOK OF A WINDOW WHICH HAS BEEN SCROUNGED AND THROWN TOGETHER.

THE SURROUNDING FRAME ALSO HAS BEEN GIVEN A COSMETIC JOB TO IN KEEP WITH THE SCAVENGED THEME.

Step 1: HAMMERS, SCREWDRIVERS AND SANDPAPER

FIRSTLY CUT OUT YOUR WINDOW IN YOUR CASE.

THERE ARE PLENTY OF INSTRUCTABLES ON HOW TO DO THIS SAFELY AND ACCURATELY.

THIS DONE, IT IS TIME TO SCRATCH, HIT AND BASH YOUR FRAME INTO COMPLIANCE.

HOLES, SCRATCHES AND DENTS ARE PRETTY EAST TO DO WITH SOME VERY BASIC TOOLS.

BE CAREFUL NOT TO WARP YOUR FRAME THOUGH, OR IT WILL BE DIFFICULT TO FIT THE WINDOW LATER.

THE GREAT THING WITH THIS IS THAT YOU CANT MAKE A MISTAKE, ITS JUST ROUGH AND OLD, WITH RANDOM DENTS AND BASHES.

(SEE PHOTOS)......

Step 2: I LOVE THE SOUND OF BREAKING GLASS.....

SCRAPS OF PLEXIGLASS ARE GREAT!

I HAD SOME SO I WAS LUCKY, BUT YOU CAN RANDOMLY BREAK SOME UP INTO CHUNKS THEN SNAP THEM TO SIZE. FORTUNATELY ITS QUITE BRITTLE.

AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE PHOTOS THE BITS ARE INDEED RANDOM BUT YOU CAN DO WHATEVER CONFIGURATION PLEASES YOU.

I POP RIVETED THE BITS TO THE CASE, BUT YOU COULD USE EPOXY RESIN OR ANYTHING ELSE. I USED POP RIVETS COS OF THE INDUSTRIAL LOOK OF THEM.

TAKE YOUR TIME AND GET THE CONFIGURATION YOU LIKE.

Step 3: POP, POP

ONCE IT IS ORGANISED AND POP RIVETED TOGETHER, YOU CAN COLOUR IT AND MAKE IT LOOK OLD AND GRIMY. (SEE PHOTOS)

I USE INKS, THE WARHAMMER ONES ARE BEST THEY ADD A LAYER OF COLOUR AND AUTHENTICITY TO YOUR WINDOW.

YOU CAN USE THEM ON THE SCRATCHES AND THE WINDOW EDGES TO ADD TEXTURE.

I TEXTURED THE EDGES WITH A FILE AS YOU CAN SEE TO MAKE IT LOOKED LIKE IT HAD BEEN HACKED AWAY. (I'M SUCH A PURIST)

Step 4: IT'S ALIVE!!!!!

I PUT SOME LIGHTS IN THE CASE TO ACCENT THE MOD BUT ITS UP TO YOU WHAT YOU DO.

IT GIVES A GREAT EFFECT AND REALLY GIVES A UNIQUE THEME TO YOUR PC.

ENJOY.

Thanks
I love it man. its awesome.
