Painting Corsair 900D/Alphacool Monsta 480mm Radiator

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So wassup guys, on the build Im planning, I decided to paint the 900D and the 3 Monstas radiators but heres the problems:
1.As the case contains plastic parts, can I just cover them with tape?
2.I know that the case is made of steel and aluminium so I need to add primer or I can just sand and paint?
3.For the radiators I need just need to cover the fins right?

For the metal I'd always sand primer and paint for the best looking/longest lasting paint cover.

For the rads you can slip a few layers of paper cut to the correct size under the lip to cover the fins. Make sure you put enough pieces though.

I don't know much about specific brands of paint, in the past I've used automotive spray paint from my dads work (the largest individual Lotus specialist in the UK)
