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 ;)

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
