UK Modders - Spray Paint

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I'm looking to spray paint the metal mesh white on the front of my Fractal Arc Midi.

What is the best type of of spray paint I can get in the UK to ensure quality and endurance?

Thanks!

I used plasti-kote satin real red on my HAF X front grills and all of the air ducts. I didnt even prime or anything, just gave them a good clean and spray painted since none of it was bare metal. Since i have had no problems at all with it, no flaking or anything. Look at my pics to see it.
I bought the spray paint from B&Q and theres always a B&Q everywhere so you should be able to get it.
Heres a link to the plasti-kote white spray paints, choose what type you want:

only £7 a pop too so not bad at all, i did two coats on all the mesh and ducts, was just enough for all that
I chose the satin since its not matte and its not gloss, best of both worlds in my opinion.
Hope this helps
