Spray painting cases.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey, about to do a matte black finish for my case
Im planning to sand it, primer, fine sand primer, fine sand, (spray, x3)

But the case is plastic as well as aluminum
Do i need to sand the plastic but with a finer grit? or just do the same as what i do with the aluminum?

Sand the plastic with about 600 grit wet n dry, that will be enough for the paint to stick and won't put deep scratches in the plastic

You should use a plastic primer on the plastic parts.
