Judge #1

Trib Light Cycle

Brian Carter aka ‘Bod Mods’

1st Place Winner in 2011 Scratch Mod Category - Tron Lightcycle PC

"Back in high school, I was always tinkering with cars along with my friends. We all had hot rods and raced at the drag strip every Wednesday night; we were also into paintballing. Soon after we started playing FPS games on our computers, which was just like playing paintball in real life, so our attention changed from cars to computers, hot-rodding them instead. That's when I decided to be different; I put a light and window in my rig for the next geek-fest (as we called it) and so it began. That was 2004. I've built over 20 case mods since, and can't stop! It's a great artistic outlet for me, and quite therapeutic as well. Case modding is the culmination of all my passions, past and present."
