I seem to be learning my painting techniques by finding out what not to do first and then recovering from there. I was putting plastic primer on the 4 Corsair fan blades and I thought it would be good to set them close together to save paint? When you start getting fur growing on what your painting, the overspray might be a little thick, ha ha . At least I figured out what was causing the problem so I can avoid it in the future. I found various things to cover parts before and after painting to keep unwanted debris off of my parts and it almost started to feel Like I knew what I was doing. ( almost )Welcome to my wind farm.
I was hoping that the factory paint on the back of the mini saw blades would be good. Well not so much! After removing the paint from the larger saw blades I used for the Metallica emblem, I learned to breakout the power tools for quick paint removal.
I wanted these to look a little ruff and menacing, so I just repainted them as they were.
It's been kind of hard to get any painting in around here. The room I was using inside is a little to cluttered now to keep the dust down and my wife keeps whining oh I can smell the paint fumes. Dang girl people pay good money to get brain damage and I'm providing it for free, what do you want from me? Out side we have been having rain storms, tornados and high winds. So it's really not that I'm a terrible painter! It's the wind. ( ya right ) ha ha
I hope my Radiators come in from EK this week so I can get the quad grill back in with the painted fans and saw blades.
I'm going to use multiple layers of slotted mesh on the mother board tray and along the drive bays with contrasting colors. I still need to polish the outer layer, but I wanted to show you what is going on here. I had to cut the grommets to fit back in the holes, because of the extra thickness.
Just got this delivered, Heavy Metal Version here I come.
