Well I didn't get any feedback about the rads being different colors, so I just went ahead and painted the RS360 white as well to match. The more I imagined it in my mind, decided it would look best matching. Did it while sitting in my garage waiting for the Switch to be delivered. I'm busy with work during the week, so real happy tomorrow is Friday and I can make some progress thumb.gif

Like I said, I did it while waiting for the delivery. I do all my painting. Just scuffed up the surface a little with some sand paper, masked the areas that I don't want painted, sprayed with some automobile primer, and then paint using multiple thin coats. This is the paint I use.

Dupli Color Engine Enamel, it's great stuff. I've used several different colors, painting metal surfaces, plastic, acrylic, and it always turns out pretty good. thumb.gif

No not real hard at all. You just wanna take your time with masking to prevent overspray, and when painting use light thin coats. The paint will run real fast if it's applied to heavy.

Well FINALLY, after working all week, and completing the "honey do list" today, I got to tear into my Switch. Just a couple shots of getting the case out of the box. I have to say like others have, when you get to see the case in person, it really looks great, really. Watching all the videos on YouTube, and looking through the pictures online, they just don't do it justice. I am really impressed with what I have seen so far thumb.gif

Well it's cold in the garage, it's late, and I'm trying to get my drink on cheers.gif So that's it for now, tomorrow I will have the whole day to start tearing the 600T down, installing blocks, and moving into the Switch.
