    I took the HD apart while I was indulging in "All You Can Eat Buffet" at Shanty Town Diner. I dropped the platter into Wild Rice Soup, but wiped it off promptly after with a Wet Wipe.

    Removing the TUF shield (The Ultimate Force) on the Asus Sabertooth P67 motherboard. It's fastened on with 8 screws on the back.











    You can install an optional "assistant" 50mm cooling fan that screws into the portal pictured above. The assistant fan is an optional component and doesn't come with the Sabertooth.
    Asus recommends mounting a CPU cooler that will blow airflow downward, toward the CPU socket.







    Using Heat gun to remove the sticker





    Using red Scotch brite pad to scuff surface of the TUF shield



    Applying Flat Black "Flexible" Primer for adhesion coat on plastic, before applying Matte Black Enamel Paint

    I wanted this build to be the 1st with "hand painted" artwork on the TUF shield, that reflects the theme I created on the chassis. So I enlisted my pro mod team member, Brad's paint skills. When you deal with the volume of customer builds like I do, you need a team of helpers. When I started out 10 years ago, I did everything myself. Due to demand, it's gotten harder to do that...lol. In return, he asked that I take him out to dinner at Big Bowl with Knob Creek and Cokes, which is fine dining to us backwoods hicks. So, the cover for optional 50mm fan served as nice location for bio-mech skull taken from the front of the chassis. Brad chalked out general idea and location for the artwork. Other than using hand made square ribbon stencil and corsair 600T intake grill as a stencil, everything was painted off the cuff, freehand without stencils. Since ASUS was kind enuf to send me the p67, it's only proper that their logo gets incorporated into the artwork. (since I removed their stickers!) I'm also leaning toward anodizing their Green heatsinks Black...btw" Notice how the mb heatsink matches the Green paper on the table perfectly? coincidence or a warning to not change them?.... btw: You won't see the brown & tan gpu slots









    Don't pay $40 for professional airbrush stencils! Make your own, grab image online, edit in photochop, print it, then cut it yourself with Xacto knife.









    I just happen to have an intake grill from corsair 600T in my car...lol. It served as perfect stencil for airbrushing the mesh grid background. Otherwise Round Modders Mesh would have worked too!

    Looks great Bill! DB painted one all white but I would have to say this is the first theme painting on the saber.
