Hey everyone, Just got this delivered today: B19BFC81-DC48-4BF9-8082-A8997C373B44.jpeg7FE6C052-1EE1-47D6-9ECA-53AE009C159E.jpeg

Plans for this are simple:
-Black the Chassis
-Clean internals
-Add lighting kit
-Color Match
-Repaint damaged areas
-Polish
-Wax
-Maybe upgrade to more recent components, i.e mid range, core i3/Athlon, decent mobo, gtx 980 and 8-16GB RAM

More to come!
Thanks, -Andrew

Also, Theres something pretty cool under that blanket ;)

Beautiful color, I got the same case a few months ago but had to settle for the burnt orange color.

Could you share the color-code for the paint, if you discover it?

All these plasma purple cases and they are my favorite where do they keep hiding from me? Nice find and happy restore

So in the time being I have had a bittersweet time with this system.

Pros:
-Most OG Components are in fantastic shape
-My crooked side panels were only mis-aligned
-LED Fans in the front
-Alien head has correct LED Wired
-Silver on Fins came out amazing

And now, the cons
-Mice have been living in the system
-OG Alienware Branded PSU destroyed due to mouse excrement
-Case was a bit corroded, wire wheel cleaned up nicely
-Black Chassis paint ran, runs were sanded need to repaint certain areas
-2 clips broke during Side Panel & Fin removal
-Paint damage was more extensive than I thought
-Had to deep clean & disinfect entire case & chassis with all surface cleaner and clorox clean-up.

Lastly, I will have to pick up a second or third can of black to finish the job. I still need to grab a color match and repaint the entire case.

And the only part of the chassis that luckily came out great with only 1 run
