    Default A4000 desktop case

    Time to let go of this item... This is a case which i wouldn't grade as perfect, but there's been work done on it, still, more work can be done if you want to improve it. I had ordered paint from a shop which has a spectroscope and painted it according to the metal cover part of the case. I'm not the best painter there is though. So, being as honest as i can be, i'm attaching plenty of pictures for you to judge.
    The fascia has been washed on retrobrite, but couldn't get much whiter, thus, i decided to paint it too. Same color as the metal cover. So paint is not flat there, it has that slightly-rough feeling on it, but still looking good methinks. The fascia also had a couple of holes drilled from previous owner, those i filled in with resin. Original switchlock was replaced with brand new as i don't have the original keys. The new switch is fully operational though, and comes with 2 keys as you can see from the pictures. Original badge was also missing, so i replaced it with one i bought and you can see that too. Plastic card-holders are there, LEDs are there, drive bay is there, and also the power shaft. The shaft was in terrible yellowing and painted,so i tried to clean it as best as possible. I have not repainted the shaft, nor the rectangular gap on the fascia, so the shaft can travel smoothly in there. Not sure if the screws are the original ones (doubt it) but i left it like i got it. There's slight rust around the edges on the bottom metal casing, not really serious, but that's why i mentioned there's still room for improvement. Bottom plastic taps have decayed long ago, making the remaining pieces an annoying sticky black goo. So i replaced those with ones that are not original. I did the best i could considering my free time and budget on this case, but it has to go, as it's surplus. What you see is what you get! Any questions please ask. Will give first chance to user ElectroBlaster as i have noticed he's placed a Wanted thread. If there's no interest from him in 2 days from now, i'll move to next up.
    Asking 175 Euros for this, plus shipping. Note: This is a rather heavy item! Weight is approx. 4,55 Kgr without packaging. Shipping to the EU is about 44 Euros (signed for). I will not negotiate the price on this item. PayPal gift, or add appropriate fees please.
    It will take me a couple of days once you express interest, so i can get me the proper box and stuffing for preparing this.

    Picture time:






















    (note the small missing bit here)























    I hope these are adequate. Thanks for looking!
