    I didn't have much time to put on my rig this week, but I made a few things:
    Completed the model, loop and parts list. Next step is to color everything inside and outside with decals, so I can have measures to make proper stencil on the IN WIN 303. Also order a bunch of stuff on Dazmode website.

    I want to show a better view of the bottom surface of the GPU waterblock, so I will flip the case 180° and the motherboard will become inverted. The case will now sit on the top panel, so new feet are needed (design in progress). Some mods will be necessary to cover the new ''top'' panel and make it pretty.

    Some ideas went through my mind during the modeling, such as including PETG bent tubes, some other configuration of the loop, and also a vertical GPU bracket.

    I've already made some bending with a heatgun (see the blue Bitfenix Shogun I made for a friend of mine), but I personally prefer the clean lines and look of the Pyrex-fittings duo. I want to keep a minimalist and consistent design.

    For the vertical GPU bracket, I prefer not to include it. The bottom of the GPU waterblock will look good, and it leaves me room to work with for the top radiator. Also more room for tubing and fittings, which is good for the look. I could possibly change my mind during the build, but it would be easy to turn around, model a GPU bracket, print it on my Makerbot Replicator and install it. We'll see!

    I disassembled my Polar Panda, cleaned everything inside and I'm now ready to drill, paint and mod the case.

    House of Kolor Titanium Pearl paint incoming with blue decals. I can't wait to see the results.

    A lot of things have been going on lately, here's a little recap of where I am with the Drift King:

    Drilled every rivet on the IN WIN 303, to reveal the horrible paint job I made. It was my first attempt for a pc case mod, and now I know I can do a lot better than that.

    But before painting, I had to shot peen almost every parts in the microblaster, sand down some defects and then, apply the primer. Many hours of work, but it will worth it.

    For the paint, I finally bought some automotive paint spray can at the specialized store of my hometown. The silver metallic is coded KL0 (Nissan Skyline 1992 Spark Silver Metallic). Looks awesome:

    72h later, the paint is dry and it's time for some masking. I made the decals on the SolidWorks model, and then transferred it on the case.
    The metallic blue is coded TV2 (Nissan Skyline 2000 Bayside Blue).

    The hex shapes were a pain in the a** to work around, but it turned out great:

    More pictures will be posted, as I painted almost everything that I had in the case, including EKWB stuff, the Raystorm PRO waterblock, rads, all the screws, etc.
    Surprises are coming too, I don't want to reveal them too early!

    Boy, I can't wait to remove the tape, polish every parts and reassemble the case...

    Here's more picture of the paint process. Shotpeening cabinet and part shotpeened:








    Masked parts:

















    Disassembled parts:






























    Case assembled:





























    It was really a challenge to align those decals. Considerable work of precision, but it looks like I got it. Phew...
    Next, the interesting part : the loop and all of the components.
