Help paint PCI Slot Covers and HDD Sleds please!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello, overclock.net
I would like to paint the PCI Slot Covers and HDD Sleds of my Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 from white to red to match my red-black theme. Can anyone please tell me what types of materials they are made of so I can choose what primer and paint to use ( they're like metal but I'm not sure). I need to know some opinion on what paint to use, and how to do this (ie prep, sanding, etc necessary?). Can I just spray paint them without using primer? Is sanding them before painting necessary? Since they are just some brackets, I wouldn't waste a lot of money to paint them though.
Any advice would be great. Thank you!

If you wanted to do a quick job to save time and money (while sacrificing durability), just scuff them as best you can with a Scotch-Brite pad, clean it off, then shoot it with your paint. Not the best way, but it will get you by for a simple job like PCIe covers and SSD sleds.

On another note, this is not the appropriate subforum for this question.
