Thanks for the replies. The rust effect is kinda hard to explain. I had never done it before and just dove right in. I concentrated on the edges as that is where rust usually starts. To do the runs I added more water to the paint as if water was in the cracks and taking the rust down the sides of the case. For the heavy rusted parts I used thicker paint to give it texture, blotting it on with a flat tipped brush. I have seen rust done on other mods and to better effect, but I still think it looks good. Wait until you see the finished pics as they really show how the whole thing comes together.

Now its time for the power generator. Unfortunately I do not have any in progress photos of it. I made it using foam board, which I cut into pieces and then glued together and sanded. Lastly, it was time for the blue cold cathode. I drilled a small hole in the top of the case to run the wiring through. It lights up with a flick of a switch.

Hey looking good! Distressed finishes are always challenging and are very noteworthy when done right. There was another sample in the last contest by chatnoir: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=13376&start=75

He used HL2 as his theme and placed 5th, I think. Looking forward to yours!

Cheers and Saludos

Here is a look at the hidden drive bay. I also added Apevia Red fans. I am also posting a lit up photo of the power generator. I noticed the fan's logo was sideways as I edited these pics. Gonna have to fix that.
