I have done all of my prep work. Sanded and cleaned with acetone. 2 coats of primer and just finished up with my 1st coat of white. I will be doing a total of 6 coats of white and then wet sanding to high gloss finish.

Here are a couple pics of the procedure so far. I will be giving little painter tips on this reply throughout the day as I progress. Super PUMPED!! Oh and I exchanged the OC formula for a RIVBE...lol

Subbed. I too am a WC noob and I love the 750D. Can't wait to see it painted. Will it be flat white or have flake?

Thanks for the sub! It will be a gloss Arctic white automotive finish. You will be able to see it better once I do the wet sanding.

I haven't even hooked it up yet. lol. But I will let you know how it fairs when I power it on. Thanks for the compliment on the paint job, they cut the grass at my condo today, so its been a little bit frustrating buttkick.gif

Finished the final coat last night! I just took off the masking tape and was very pleased with the results. I will need to do a little bit of touch up work but all in all it turned out just as I had imagined. I will still probably put on a couple coats of clear and wet sand/ polish the finish. It will be kinda difficult though since there are a ton of edges, holes and protruding sections. I may just polish the mother board tray, since that is what you would see...who knows...

I have ordered all of my rads. They will be here on tuesday. I ordered a UT60 to see if it will fit ok in the roof of the 750D. I also ordered XPC 360/45 and a 240/60 as well. If The UT60 does not fit I will be using the 45mm XPC. I also ordered the R4BE monoblock in Nickle from EK. Very EXCITED!!
