I know air drying can'd paint takes almost 2 weeks to cure completely. before you can sand it for smooth finish or to be able to apply any chemical to it.

oh, thank you about the facebook thing didn't really think it was going to receive so much attention

Very true, Im just ready to get a few more builds under my belt and get to pumping out some great looking things.

Updates are looking great man! Keep up the good work. I think NZXT should release a black/gold version. Would be sick!

You got that right. It's hard to be original with a Phantom and that's my goal. Soundworks just Nailed it with his build, I can't help but steal his idea with the Coolermaster fans. Heck I have 6 of them already just gotta buy two more.

Paint it like the instructions on the can says, Im talking about the time it takes you to wait between coats, What I mean about the 2 weeks is for the paint to completely cure and be ready for sanding a buffing for that glossy shine look
