I wanted to come up with a creative, low cost way to customize my computer to make it look cooler. I have an old eMachines desktop computer and it looked really boring. I decided I was going to design a pattern on the case cover. In this instructable I will be going over how i did this project.

Step 1: What you will need

For this project I needed:
The computer (of course)
A disposable drawing of the design (I obtained mine from Google, but if you're confident in your own drawing abilities you can make one yourself)
A drill (I used a Craftsman, but any brand is fine)
A drill bit (Due to the scale of my project area I used a 5/64")
Safety glasses (We are drilling through metal after-all)
Something to keep from drilling through the floor, desk, self, etc. (I just used an old wheel since the cover fit nicely over it. Although there are probably better ways, but I was on a low budget.)
Tape (If you end up using a paper design as a guide, you'll need this to hold it in place while drilling)
hey cool yarr..nice color combination u have applied..<br>you can also go with other computer case to protect your PC.<br><br>south-pak.com
Yes, I suppose my current case has been through a lot.
