I am going to Cerakote my Storm Stryker

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
In Cerakote Tungsten.
Here is my Oakley Fuel Cell I did in Tungsten. Its a grayish metallic. Interior of the case will be matte black.

Not sure when I will do it though. Need more $$ to get all my components to finish modding the case

Sounds like a good plan, definitely will be unique. Plus, that finish will never scratch off. biggrin.gif

Have you narrowed down your parts list yet?

Kind of. With the 360 rad in the front, I am looking at where I'm going to fit the HDD(s)

How do you go about prepping and applying this product? Very interested!

Blasting with 120 grit AO would be ideal, but with the paint being fairly thin, I should be good with roughing the surface with a scratch pad or 220grit sand paper, followed by an acetone whipe and pre-bake in the oven.

I normally let parts soak in acetone for 20 minutes, but without blasting the paint off, the acetone soak may cause blemishes in the finish unless you blasted the rest of the paint off.

What about the plastic components? Acetone and plastic are a bad idea afaik.

An acetone whipe shouldn't harm it. An acetone soak would melt it. I've had good luck with a little acetone rub on plastic. You could also use alcohol if your worried about acetone.
It wouldn't hurt to spray some adhesion promoter after the plastic parts are degreased.

The biggest thing is temperature. The Cerakote I have is heat cure. So I will have to make sure the plastic can withstand 200 degree (f) temperature, which it should.

Cerakote also makes an air cure paint that is more heat resistant, but less durable than the heat cure.
