Project GT



Summary of what I did here.
#1 Painted case white pearl and flat black. Matte coat on top
#2 Painted radiator and radiator cover Satin jet black
#3 Black stain oak veneer cover for the psu shroud (went a little too dark killed most of the grain lol. I tried it 3 different times and well at the end picked the least grained one.
#4 Hydrodipped all the black plastic on the case to carbon fiber
#5 Lian li sl 120 and 140s converted to black and white with vinyl
#6 Rear cover is Carbon fiber white and black vinyl on one side (embossed the logo but the white makes it hard to tell). Other side of the cover is perforated leather, but all the case components make it hard to see but what gaps can be seen from the main view, you just see leather.
#7 tubes are matte mixed with jet black with no clear on top of any kind. Tried a few combinations this gave me the most of shinny but not too shinny.
#8 bought the case twice to get 2 glass doors because CM can't get a man a door. LOL
#9 Some other stuff I forgot, or don't want to disclose 😅
