Paint it pearl white. You know you want to. That or candy coat it
I'm actually using Rust-oleum spray paint products and am trying out mat white first to see if it looks good, but I do have gloss clear enamel I might do a final coat with if I don't like the results . Or maybe I'll leave it to a vote! So feel free to leave your 2c.
Edit: On a side note, although not related to the build or even worthy of it's own post for that matter. This is what I found today when I was looking for my coworkers sunflower seeds...
Yes, yes that is a half eaten piece of cake shut in a drawer that is hard as a rock.
Edit: Good news, the cake has been claimed by our wonderful on site IBM rep.
After putting a few parts together I was seeing a lot of scratching and wasn't entirely happy with it, so I'm in the process of adding a clear-coat to see if I can limit the scratching. Should add final coat (2/2 just to ensure coverage) tonight and then have it pieced together tomorrow for the most part. I also have 2 pics of it minus the clear coat that I will upload possibly tonight. Side project is I have gone to exclusively Ubuntu on my laptop (speed+educational purposes), so I have to get a few things synced up/learn the GUI/OS to do various things while my PC is temporarily out of commission.
