bitfenix shinobi mesh painting

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
thinking of getting a bitfenix shinobi for a friend and wanted to paint the mesh a different color. i have seen people do the same, but some sand the mesh before and some do not. is it necessary? what kind of paint would be ideal for sanding and not sanding?

Rustoleum spray paint. Buff it up with a Scotch Brite Pad first to knock the glossiness off it, clean with rubbing alcohol, let dry. Dust on the paint and build up the coat slowly so you don't fill the holes.

600 grit wet/dry paper with water would work as well. You just need to buff the surface out a little to give the new paint something to hold onto. Just removing the shininess on the surface. Careful around the edges so you don't go through the paint.
