I didn't imply I was looking to just "slap some paint on it" but when I paint, it is on canvas (which also requires some prep) so I was speaking more in terms of the sanding, materials used, and wait times throughout the process, etc.
Since you mentioned painting cars, is that similar to cases? If so, could you provide some insights and tips on the process?
Just to be clear, if I wanted a decent looking red full-tower case and wanted to be lazy, I'd just have gotten the NZXT Phantom, By no means am I looking to do a rush job.... If I bother to create something, I want it to be something I can be proud of. In fact, that is why I am asking because I really want to know what I'm getting myself into to before I start so I can avoid as many mistakes as possible, get the best finished looked and, in the end, limit the time I will be without my system.
I figured since this was a thread about the specific case and so many of you were doing mods that it'd be a great place to get some advice on the specifics of painting the Stryker. If I'm asking in the wrong place, I apologize. And, if so, please let me know and I won't ask for any more advice here.
