Or you could go with one of many automotive paints as they might last a little longer but it's again all about preference.

It's user preference.

Just be sure to use a primer first.

Being that we're in the subject of "paint" and how long it lasts - how long does a black interior last that was done at the factory verses a do it yourself job?

Lets say it's a Cooler Master black interior already done from the factory verses a case interior that wasn't black to begin with and was then painted black by a do it yourself method?

See, I never had a black case interior before and actually don't know about the durability of such.biggrin.gif

Thanks:)

I'm coming up on a year and a half or so on my Krylon job, and it's still holding up fantastic. Very few spots are noticeable, and that's probably just my painting problems when it was originally done.

If prepped good it will last longer than you will be in that case.
Make sure it's clean and scuffed and use the non-sanding primer sealer as it will give you the best inter-coat adhesion.

How well does a already black interior from the factory lets say Cooler Master hold up verses one painted yourself?

Thanks:)
