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.
