MSI Vortex mod

So I applied for the MSI Vortex mod contest and somehow got chosen to participate.  8 contestants have til july 14th at PDXLAN to mod a MSI Vortex case. no hardware involved.  I figured I would share my progress.   I wasn't even gonna be able to do the contest due to lack of funds but a friend of mine talked to a facebook group about it and the group ended up raising money for me to get the supplies/etc i will need to do the mod!!! So between that and the fact that this is my first contest...i am super nervous lol..but....here we go...first lets take a look at the case..
