    Show Notes

    In Episode 35 Dennis announced the launch of Ninjalane v4.0 and with it a Custom Hardware Giveaway involving a Thermaltake Level 10 GT.  Casemodding seems to be a lost art these days given the plethora of pre-modded designs but, that doesn’t mean you are limited to just a stock chassis.  In this episode Dennis talks about painting the Level 10 GT and the process required to paint with something a little more complex than a standard bomb can.

    One key aspect of any successful modding project is making sure you plan everything out.  For most projects you can break them up into three stages.

    Stage 1: prep and planning – This stage includes the selection of components and deciding what you are going to do.
    Stage 2: Execution – This stage is where you do the actual work, for this project it included tearing the case apart and prepping everything for paint.
    Stage 3: Assembly and Completion – The final stage is gathering up all of your modded parts and putting the case back together. 

    For larger projects you can break then even further using sub-tasks and thus give yourself more ways to track where your project is.  Then when you finish a particular part you can move on to the next one.
